Faber Castell & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 1
It's the first day of our amazing blog hop with Faber-Castell! We are so excited to be hopping with this fabulous company. They are so wonderful and make incredible products. We have two great ideas to kick off the hop from the fabulous Arlene Cuevas and Tati Scrap! Enjoy this blog hop and stay until the end to hop with Faber-Castell.
First, enjoy this gorgeous layout from Arlene! She has a great video tutorial below as well. So gorgeous!
"This is my all time favorite photo of my beautiful baby niece Jaelyn. I never get tired of creating with her as my inspiration. I created the background of this layout using Faber-Castell Gelatos and Whipped Spackle. So fun to play with! The Once Upon a Springtime papers were a JOY to create with. I love all the flowers and fairies and whimsical images. Be sure to check out my video tutorial where I show you how I created this page. I hope you give one of these layouts with mixed media background a try for yourself. If you do, be sure to share it on the Graphic 45 Facebook page! We’d love to see it!
TIP: Gesso your surface before working with Gelatos. This will ensure you get a smooth blend after your spritz the medium with water." ~Arlene
