Art Journal page with Faber-Castell PITT Pastels & Helmar - and a GIVEAWAY
This month the Helmar team did a cross promotion with Faber-Castell, so I got to play with some fun products and made a page for my art journal.
Using a stencil, I traced my design with a Faber-Castell PITT pen (black, superfine). Then I coloured it with the PITT Pastel pencils, and blended with a blending stump. Then I sprayed with Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative, to set the pastels.
I then used the large brush PITT markers and did some stamping. These markers are awesome for stamps - just rub it over the stamp, and away you go.
Next, I adhered strips of book text, with the Helmar Decoupage:
And added some words using the PITT Brush tip and superfine tip markers:
Now, the fun part for you! There was a bit of shipping confusion with my parcel from Faber-Castell, and I ended up getting 2 kits instead of just 1, so I'm giving away the second kit:
To win, just leave a comment on this post before next Friday morning (Aug 3). Open to everyone. Don't forget to come back next week to see if you've won!
