Happy Hoppin' all! Thank you for joining us on the blog hop today! Prima and Faber-Castell are two amazing companies with inspiring products. I have two projects I would like to share using both.
First is this layout I created using Prima flowers and Faber-Castel Gelatos, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, and PITT Artist Big Brush Pens.
I decoupaged tissue paper to a piece of watercolor paper. Then I used the Gelatos and watercolor pencils on the tissue paper and sprayed them with water. Then with my finger I blended and spread the colors across the page. I used a green PITT pen with my Prima stamp to add texture to the page. I then used a black PITT pen to add the abstract strokes on the page. To highlight my title I outlined it with a black colored pencil.
My next project is a mixed media canvas. It measures at 12"x36". I used Prima Songbird papers and vintage music sheets to create the background. I then painted the Prima donna using acrylic paints. I used Gelatos to paint in the flowers and outlined them with the PITT artist pen. To add the shadow around her I used a black gelato and blended it out. Vintage Trinkets and Say It In Crystals add the finishing touch to the Summer piece.
To add the vintage feel I took Tim Holtz'z Distress Stains over the background. Along with Prima stamps and Fiber Paste.
I hope you enjoyed my projects and the techniques I used. Now make sure to check out all the other amazing blogs!
