Welcome to the Prima/Faber-Castell Blog Hop!!



Is there anything better than two companies combining their amazing products? Today we have a joint venture by Prima Marketing and Faber-Castell! Not only do our products work perfectly together, but they provide wonderful platforms for inspiration and creativity!
We challenged our talented design teams to create projects combining products just for YOU! Hopefully they will get your creativity going too.

Here is my layout using Prima and Faber-Castell Watercolour Pencils and Wax Crayons.   The Faber-Castell Watercolour Pencils and Prima's Paintable papers were made for each other.  I wanted my layout to be very soft and neautral of my sweet bub:)  The watercolours were great for this as I could really tone down the colour by applying more water. 


"Pure"




I scrapped the brick mask with some gesso, I then applied modelling paste to give it extra texture.  I then used a black watercolour pencil and added colour to the bricks.   I love how the black turned into a grey and how the colour run into the texture paste.

I added touches of blues, apricot and green onto the Paintable paper. I popped some Prima blooms in there too and used a blue wax crayon to give the centre of the flowers some colour.
