Blog Hop With Hazel & Ruby: Today's project with Tiffany



H&R Faber-Castell logo

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here and this week we'll be pairing with the fabulous Hazel and Ruby! Each day this week, we’ll post a new project on our blogs. Make sure you hop to both blogs and the Facebook page for more chances to win our giveaways!





1. Add the self-sticking rectangular border from one of the Alpha Stencil-Masks to the pallette sign. Trace the border with a matching Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil. Color outer border with Gelatos Double-Scoop.

2. Blend with water using a foam brush & allow to dry. This will stain the wood.

3. Add a coat of Glaze. This will seal the color & add some sheen.

4. Apply gesso to the inside of the finished border with a large brush. Allow to dry.


 5. Cut Ephemera Collage Pass the Tissues to fit inside rectangular border & apply using a coat of Gel Medium under & on top to seal. Allow to dry.

6. Color with the Blood Orange Gelato & blend with wet brush. Add the Chalk Art & Blindside Alphas Stencils-Masks quote & add a coat of gesso on top. Peel away the stencils-masks & the color from the gelatos will be revealed!
