Discover Canvas with Faber-Castell®

Hi everyone, it's Anita today and I want to share with you a canvas
I made using lots of wonderful Faber-Castell® products.

I used a flat canvas for this so I could do some stamping on it. For the image at the top
I used my Stampers Big Brush Pens; Black to stamp the image and it is colored
 with Light Cobalt Turquoise #154.
To create the colored dots that are scattered across the canvas I used my
soldering iron to melt Paper Crafter Crayons in a variety of colors.

I started by painting the background with Gesso mixed with Bubble Gum Gelatos®.
I wanted a streaky effect so I did not mix the Gelatos® all the way in. 
While the Gesso was still wet I pushed small doilies into it for texture.

To color my background I mixed several colors of Gelatos® with water and 
brushed the colors on randomly.  I like to mix my colors right on my craft mat - it is easier 
for me to work with it this way.

I colored wood butterflies with Blue Metal and Metallic Grape Gelatos. I applied the colors
directly to the wood and blended with my fingers.

I added accents with Black and White Stampers Big Brush Pens then sprayed
them with a fixative for some shine.

For my title I colored a chippie with Cherry Red Gelatos® and then added 
a coat of Diamond Glaze. For the background I used more Gelatos® mixed with 
water to stamp the circles.

I used my Black Stampers Big Brush Pen to stamp my images then
added some glitter glue for sparkle.

Here you can see one of the doilys after it has been colored.
I added a sprinkle of tiny chipboard stars to finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my project.
