*Prima & Faber Castell Hop Winner & Wrap Up*

Hi friends!
Happy Hump Day...

Today is the final Prima & Faber Castell wrap up on the Prima blog
& I thought I'd do the same on MY blog. Not to mention let you know
the winner of MY own personal Prima give-away.

First up, let me share my layout I did that's over on the Prima blog today:

I'm sure I've used this pic before - it's a of  my faves of my handsome husband
and myself!

Here's a little diddy about my layout:

I decided to get bold & have FUN with Faber-Castell goodies on this page.
I used the Gesso as a background – to tone my bright paper down just a little bit.
Then I used a Prima brick mask & colored between the “mortar” with gelato’s.
I also used the gelato’s to color my resist canvas flowers, then used the artist
pen to blend it all together for a fun watercolor, artsy effect.

Some close up shots:

Here's a few other projects I created using Prima & Faber Castell:

Have a great day, friends!

Oh wait...
wait for it, wait for it.....
funniest iPhone pic ever:

it's one of those you had to "be here to see it happen"
Subject:  Lilly (Pulitzer) Ashe
Crime:  Laughing at ME.
Reason:  well...said master (or grand master in my case?) was playing tug the giraffe with her.
I took it from her. Her lips FROZE on her teeth like that. How'd I get her to stay?
I just put her giraffe on my head and said..."stay Lilly."
She minds SO well.
Oh man...she's laughing because I look ridiculous with her toy on my head.
See? best iPhone picture ever.

Hi Leslie! Wow, girl, your Prima/Faber Castell layouts are simply stunning! I so love the bricked background you created on the first one. And wow on those canvas flowers. The blend of color is amazing. Love the giant S you created on the second. That is so darn creative. And all the flowers on the last two are absolutely gorgeous!
Little Lilly does make me smile! Too funny! My pup Crissy rolls over onto her back and smiles at us like that when she wants us to scritch her belly. Gets me every time. :)
