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?

Enjoy the Hop!
