Beauty Canvas-May Arts/Faber Castell


I was so excited to be trying out these Gelatos from Faber Castell that I just couldn't wait to get started.

I received the Pitt pen in Cold Grey and the gelatos "50's Diner collection"
May Arts Ribbons used:
439-27 Yellow flowers.
KS18 wired string
442-15-17 Lace with satin center
Other:
Paper Authentique- Blossom
Gourmet rubber Stamps-Polka Dot Stencil
Adhesive-ThermOWeb
8x10 canvas
Wow Melt it
Coffee Filters
Thread
Spackle 


Layer the Gelatos and rub them in until you get the desired effect, using a little bit of water will tone down the color if that is what your looking for.  Using a stencil apply Spackle or other medium to give dimension.  Apply another layer of Gelatos and go over everything with the Pitt pen.  I even went around the edges of the flowers to make them a little more antiqued.  Start applying your papers and pictures in layers until you get your desired look.

Thank you so much for taking a look at my project today, make sure you stop by everyone's blogs to check out the other fabulous creations.

  7. Great layout. The picture is the main item and the rest of the project works to enhance it.
    Too often the layouts get too fussy - this one is just right.
