** This giveaway is over **
I had the chance to play with some Faber-Castell products in my art journal and I'm excited to share the results with you along with a giveaway! (Details below.)
Mix & Match from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft makes designing with color simple. Choose a color set that inspires you. Choose a medium. Mix & Match as you create. Color coordinated palettes give you the freedom to design your project knowing the colors will work beautifully together. Perfect for all your design, memory and craft projects.
When they say the Gelatos are creamy, they are not kidding. They are like butter. So much fun to play with. You can get a pastel-type feel by using them straight in your artwork, but then with a paintbrush and a little water, you can easily blend them into a water-colour look. They are even strong enough to be used on a stamp and applied to your artwork. It is fun to mix up the different mediums. Add more details with the Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor pencil, and even outline with the Pitt Pen.
Two winners will receive: A Mix & Match Mixed Media Sampler and Color Gelatos & Clear Stamp kit! See below for details.
Mixed Media Sampler Sets in Red, Yellow, Blue and Green encourage you to spread your creative wings and experiment with mixing mediums! Each set includes a Stamper’s Big Brush, Gelato Metallic Stick, Pastel Pencil and Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor pencil. Experiment with mixing colors and mediums or layer different mediums to create depth and details. Or try using your rubber stamps with the different mediums to see which effects you like the most.
Color Gelatos are creamy sticks infused with brilliant color. The color slides easily onto papers and can then be dissolved with water to create watercolor effects, or left to dry for vibrant bursts of color. Try stamping with the Color Gelatos, or apply a field of color and use a stamp to remove the color. Color Gelatos work wonderfully on flocked papers and embellishments too! Color Gelatos are acid-free and odorless.
