BLOG HOP with Faber-Castell & Prima!!!

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.
We've also included a chance to win some of our products.
Hop around to our talented design team blogs and leave a comment on
each of their blogs. Both the Prima Blog and the Faber -Castell Blog will be giving prizes!

If you are new to my blog welcome. If you are a regular
thank you for being here!
I have a Prima mini album to share with you today!
I shared the cover a while back but never got to the inside- when I recieved my
box full of Prima goodies I was totally inspired to go back and finish the inside!
Most of the work is done with Gelatos- wet and dry techniques- the cover was wet.

Here she is, my Prima ballerina- this book is for her-
she loves it and all things feminine! She has always wanted
to take ballet lessons and she loves every minute of it!
This small Prima canvas already has the resist pattern to it so adding dry Gelatos
is a perfect medium to highlight it! The ribbon, butterfly and ballerina are also Prima.
I did make her a lovely skirt to go with her ensemble! ( Can you tell I had a little fun!) 

Here is the other side to that page- using Gelatos
dry with a sponge applicator and a Prima stencil.

Similar techniques here...
Here I went back with  a Prima stamp and acrylic white paint over the Gelato back ground.

I wish I could get you to see this page in person - it was hard to capture
but I used a texture paste with sand in it - although the entire page is blue
the coarse texture gives the color gradient and depth!
And on the last page I added an image transfer to get that dreamy
look and painted a pic of my little one- I can imagine her as she
gets older, I wonder if she will always dance. I hope so- even if just for fun!

I will also do a givaway of some Faber-Castell & Prima Products -
I will choose a couple of winners on Thursday from someone who leaves me a comment
and is a follower of  my blog!!!
