Faber-Castell & Linnie Blooms Blog Hop

Faber-Castell & Linnie Blooms
Faber-Castell & Linnie Blooms products are a mixed media match made in heaven!  So we decided to swap products and spend the week sharing all of the great items the Design Teams have created! Please be sure to follow both company’s blogs so that you don’t miss a thing! Go HERE for a complete list of participating Designers.
My project is a mini layout of my little nephew, Colin.

Faber-Castell Supplies:

1. Before you begin, protect your work surface or work on a craft mat. Apply two shades of blue gelatos (Elderberry & Acqua Dolce) randomly across the entire canvas page. Use a wet paint brush to spread and blend the colors adding more water as needed. Continue adding color until you are pleased with intensity. Dry with a heat gun. Using permanent ink, randomly stamp newsprint definitions around the entire background. Place a stencil onto the background and while holding it firmly, apply texture paste through three distinct and separate areas. Set the canvas aside to dry.
2. Apply Elderberry Gelato to the edge of each pennant flag. Blend towards the center with a wet paint brush so that the color is more intense on the edge and gradually lightens in the center. Set aside to dry or dry the flags with a heat gun. Poke two holes in the top corner of each pennant and set an eyelet in each hole. Apply adhesive letters to the flags and then thread the pennant flags unto a piece of baker's twine.

3. Color and shade the canvas star yellow using Stamper's Big Brush Pens. Paint the inside of the star with Light Yellow and apply the darker shade Cadmium Yellow only along the edges. When the star has thoroughly dried, apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel along the edge.  Next, cut out a small heart from white cardstock and apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel to it. Set aside to dry. 

4. Attach the photo inside a chipboard frame and hang the string of flags along the lower edge by adhering the twine to the back of the frame. Embellish the layout with arrows, a large tag, a heart & a small duckie. Attach four buttons in the corners of the page and tie ribbons at the ends of the string of flags.
