Anything But a Card Challenge #5


Hi Everyone!

Today sees a new challenge over at Anything But a Card.  We simply want to see any project you create other than a card and the Design Team have created some wonderful projects this fortnight to inspire you.

For my post today I am sharing a page from my art journal created using my new Faber Castell Gelatos and some white acrylic paint and stamping.  This is the first time I have drawn with the Gelato's and then blended with a waterbrush.  It's also the first time I have attempted to draw a face/portrait.  I was rather happy with how my face turned out and credit has to be given to Tam over at Willowing and Friends and her free class I have commenced titled Art, Heart and Healing.



I have to say I am in love with the Gelatos, they work so beautifully in a number of different ways and blend so effortlessly.

We can't wait to see what you have created, simply add your project to the linky on the Anything But a Card Blog.
