Now, to share my Prima/Faber-Castell DMC projects! I did 2 projects for this hop...

First up is a purse I made with Donna Downey's refill canvas pages, some canvas resist pieces and of course Faber-Castell DMC Gelatos, Aquarelles, and Pitt Artist pens.

 A pocket made from one of the resist canvas pieces with Gelatos over a Prima mask, pens, modeling paste and Aquarelles.

 The back of the purse!  Some more modeling paste, Gelatos, resist canvas pieces.

 Inside of the purse with some more Gelatos!  I used ribbon for the handles.

My son watching TV surrounded by his car and truck toys makes me so happy! 
I love the colors in the Fairy Belle and Sun Kiss!

 Stamps with PITT Big Brush Artist pen and embossing powder from WOW! Oh and how could I forget... Gelato drippage!!

The Pitt Pen and embossing powder might just have been my favorite. I have never used the Pitt pen--I guess I need to get one. I also like the watercolor pencil idea.
