Hopping with Unity and Faber-Castell today!


Happy Thursday!

Today we are happy to have Faber-Castell joining us on our weekly hop
Unity and Faber-Castell
a match made in mixed media heaven!


I went WAY out of my comfort zone
which is totally fun to make yourself do by the way
and worked on a small canvas
I used a set that I have had my eye on using for awhile now- Ooh La La
I adore all things Parisian and this set is packed full of French goodness
I then also used some Gelatos, Pitt Artist Pens and Gesso

First I gesso'd the canvas to prime the surface and get it ready
I then rubbed the gelatos on the canvas and rubbed it with my finger to blend
I found I wanted it a bit creamier so I spritzed with water and it blended perfectly
I dried it with my heat gun as I was impatient to get started
I stamped with a combination of ink, white gelato and pitt artist pens
I took a white pitt pen to doodle around the edges then finished them off with gold gelato

Want to win some of these goodies for  your own crafty stash?
Make sure you leave a comment at each stop on the hop today including the Unity blog and Faber-Castell blog for your chance to win the amazing prize package below!


Enjoy the Hop!

Hop Hop First on the Stop with Unity!


I'm not rushing Summer away but I do love that I get to play with Halloween and Fall images already! I used this FANTASTIC sentiment stamp from this moth's KOTM- Summer collapsed into Fall. I have the fun witchy hat out on my craft table too getting ready to make another card. This kit is a great mix of Fall, Halloween and assorted images to help you make some amazing cards. 

In today's news there are some great new Susan K Weckesser stamps being released today and more of my fave from Josyln- Halloween Stamps!!!!
I need these!!


And of course a great sweet and simple sale
