Okay, here is my project...
 Art Canvas
I created a mixed media altered canvas using many of the products from both companies!!  LOVE these together!
 The canvas was primed with black gesso and then Gelatos were colored over the dry surface and smudged with my fingers. 
White gesso was then applied with an old credit card and scratched into with a sharp tool.
 Using Twinkling H2Os I stamped with Creative Imaginations wood mounted stamp. 
 I colored some Prima letters with Twinkling H2Os after coating them with Primary Elements Bind & Resist first to create a better adherence. 

 After stamping gesso on the canvas with a foam block, I dripped Twinkling H2Os down in the same colors I used on the letters.
 Here's a close up of the painted area using my favorite colors of the Twinkling H2Os...Lemongrass and Mandarine Citrine!
 Thistle stamp using Faber Castell's PITT Big Brush Marker in Black.   I also used the White Big Brush Marker to create circles!


I loved the stencils from Creative Imaginations... the wings and heart were my favorites!  I used Gelatos mixed with water and sprayed for the heart and then outlined it in PITT artist pen with a small tip. The wings were made with modeling paste mixed with Black Licorice Gelato and LuminArte Dragonfly Wing powder.  The result is a black with sparkle that is stunning!

Supplies:
Faber-Castell products:  
Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos (Black Licorice, Red Cherry, Tangerine, Mango, Bosenberry,  Lemon)
Faber Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Big Brush Marker in Black
