Hello all, Michelle here from Adelaide, South Australia.
The weather here has been perfect for crafting.
So with a little help from some Helmar and Faber Castell I had a fun time playing with lots of texture and colour.
Who would have thought that Faber Castell Gelatos could be so much fun.
Not having had a chance to play with them before I really wanted to test them out.
And I must say.. I was not disappointed with what I was able to achieve.
By creating the main part of my title using a hand cut template and some texture paste I was able to create a nice base. I then used some Faber Castell Gelatos to colour and blend directly onto the texture paste once it was nice and dry. I love the effect that I was able to get and Faber Castell Gelatos were a perfect match for the texture paste. They adhered and blended nicely.
I was also able to finish off the centre of my title by hand colouring the title using a Faber Castell Aquagrip Aquarelle and blended it using water. It really made the title have pop and texture with very little effort.
Now.. I absolutely love to hand cut and water colour as some of you may know. I find it quite relaxing. With a little help from some Faber Castell Aquagrip Aquarelles I was able to colour away to my hearts continue with ease. They really do create a nice smooth finish to the water colour look.
Then with a little help from Helmar I gave the flowers and leaves some dimension by using some Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere them down at various heights.
Lots of colour and dimension. But the best bit was...
I made lots of mess and had a blast trying out some fun techniques with Helmar and Faber Castell.
Why not give some a try and have fun playing around.
