There are some great prizes too- Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft and DCWV will be giving away $75 in product at the end of the hop. To win, follow the list below and leave a comment. The hop will end at 5PM EST on Friday, March 28th. The winner will be announced on Monday, March 31st on each of the company’s blogs. For extra entries, follow Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft @DesignMemCraft and DCWV @DCWV on twitter!



I created this mixed media canvas for my bestie (shh.. it's for her birthday!). The flowers are paper pieced from DCWV "Vintage Lane" glossy papers. Since the paper has a glossy surface, I was able to color and shade the flowers with amazing PITT Pens from Faber Castell. The original paper is black and white.


Here is a close up of the coloring with PITT pens. I smeared the ink on the flower to get the shading I liked, and once it's dry it is permanent. Which means I can go over it with some glitter Mod Podge and the colors won't bleed ;)


The texture in the background is from a new DCWV flourish stencil that I coated with Faber Castell Whipped Spackle. This combination gives so much dimension to the canvas! In the corners, you can also see some colored DCWV Corrugate paper.




This was a lot of fun to create and didn't require too many materials. I love the end result and hope my friend loves it, too! Be sure to hop along... there will be a lot of inspiration!
