Creative Imaginations/Faber-Castell Blog Hop

Creative Imaginations and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft designers have teamed up for a fabulous blog hop from August 27-31st! Hop with us today for craft ideas, inspiration and tutorials! Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win!

Creative Imaginations and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft will each be giving away a $50 prize pack! The blog hop will end at midnight on August 31st. The two winners will be announced on the companies’ blogs on September 4th. Ready to be inspired?

I colored this canvas with Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (blue) then spritzed with water and blended the colors with my fingers.  I used the Stamper's Big Brush from the Mix & Match Mixed Media Sampler to color a script stamp and stamped on the background.  After heat embossing the white circles, I used the Neutral Gelato to add another layer of color to the canvas (I blended with my fingers). I traced the large words and butterflies (adhered to the canvas using Gel medium) with blue water colors and used a wet paint brush to blend into the background.  I used Mix & Match Art Grip Color Pencils to add definition to the journaling.

As a finishing touch, I painted the smaller butterflies with Egyptian Gold Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist and flicked Autumn Leaf Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist onto the background.





Next stop is Rita's blog.  Below is a list of the order of the hop.

Lovely project! Thanks for the step by step!

Do you think you could turn word verification off? If not forever, at least for the duration of the hop? It's a serious hassle...

TanishaRenee said...

Didn't realize the word verification was on....Thanks for the heads...must have switched back inadvertently when blogger changed.

Love the blue and brown tones. Faber-Castell products truly intrigue me, but I am uncertain how to use them together and where to start. I can see that the end results are amazing.

You know, I would never think to use the colors you've chosen for your gorgeous canvas. But they are beautiful together. I keep thinking I've got to start using different color combinations, because my pages are all starting to look the same, and I am definitely going to try yours.
