*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.
