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!

LOL... my first attempt to leave a comment resulted in my computer mysteriously turning itself off ;)

JJ, you continue to amaze and surprise me with your incredible artistic accomplishments. I don't care about the contest, I just wanted YOU and all your readers to know how much I admire and envy your talents. You're an inspiration to my complete and utter amateur attempts at scrapbooking.
