This project is a 12x12 shadowbox with little 3x3 canvases that I individually decorated and then put them inside the frame on double layers of foam adhesive.
I have to admit that I had some Faber-Castell products before this hop, but I just didn't have the courage to try them out....What if I messed up? What if I don't like it? Well, I can tell you that my project is FAR from perfect, but I really LOVE working with these products. I think that my new favorite medium is Gelatos! The backgrounds as well as the images are all colored with them.
I used the Welcome Home stamp set and the Build A House dies from Taylored Expressions. From Faber-Castell, I used the Gel Medium, Gesso, Gelatos, and Pitt Stampers Big Brush Artist Pens to stamp the images and color on the white cardstock that I die cut for the window panes and doors. Take a closer look at each image (but don't look too close, there are several mistakes). ;)
I have always wanted to get into mixed media and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to participate in this hop.....it was just the right PUSH that I needed.
