This blog hop is by far the most anticipated blog hop of the year for me! I adore anything Rita Barakat comes out with and have a crush on Faber Castell. Sadly, I do not have much of Faber Castell in my stash. So, when I found out we were having a hop with them I was over the moon! Faber Castell sent me four different technique based kits to play with and I played with all of them! Though today I am only sharing one — Abstract Art. Don’t worry though because I will be sharing everything over the next couple of months.
Blog Hop List
First, lets get the technicalities out of the way. There are prizes to be won on this hop! In order to qualify for a prize you must leave a comment on each blog and consider subscribing.
I created three 4 by 6 panels with the Abstract Art Kit and Rita Barakat mermaids. Here is a video of the unboxing of the kit and how to use it: Abstract Art
Are you ready for another wonderful blog hop? Today the designers for Joy Clair have teamed up to bring you more new stamp projects featuring the new Color Faith line!
My stamp set is the large Saved By Grace. It has the most beautiful doodled flowers and large script words! Alll of my projects are created with gelatos.
Faith Bible Art
This is not my favorite Bible art page I have ever created. I have decided to share it with you because it is the base of what got me started with this set and the gelatos. I learned a lot as I completed it. My intention was to create a watercolor page. By doing so I learned how to use water with the gelatos.
First I tried to create an ombre affect by mixing gelatos with water and painting them on a clear gessoed Bible page. Once it dried, I tried to stamp with the gelatos, but did not like the look, so I stamped with a waterproof ink and colored them in the same way I colored the background. The page was finished off by stamping “Faith” and “Love”.
To create this card I first stamped a bunch of the words with white and heat set it with embossing powder. I applied my gelatos on top of the stamped image and wipped of the words as I blended out the gelatos.
To create the flowers, I first stamped the images, painted them with gelatos, cut them out and layered them.
This card turned out super cute! A few gems to make up the center and a couple dots of Dew Drops to finish it off.
My expectations for this ATC were not high. I was not sure how the gelatos would react with the vinyl , but I tried it and ended up liking it a lot!
The texture makes this interesting! To create the ATC, I first stamped the flowers and heat set them. I applied the gelatos directly on the ATC and rubbed it out with my finger. I took a baby wipe and lightly buffed the top of the flowers to let the embossed image shine through for more definition. Grace was stamped with white pigment ink and embossing powder that I heat set. A few dots of Dew Drop was the final touch.
Now it is time to hop! Please hop through all the blogs to see the rest of the fantastic new releases! Don’t forget to leave a comment in each blog along the way.
