Hello everyone! Welcome to day 1 of Faber-Castell and Waffle Flower Inspiration Week! We team up with our friends at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft to bring you an entire week of mixed-media inspiration! Blog-hop-badge-Faber-Castell-Waffle-Flower We have Tessa here today! DesignTeamHeadshots-Tessa Hi everyone! I created a mixed media canvas.  It measures 12 x 6". Flower Canvas 5 I started by painting the outside edges with a citrus green paint.  I then layered torn book pages to create the background.  I used the Faber-Castell Gel Medium to decoupage them down piece by piece. Collage 1 I added some background stamping next, using the heart from DT Mix Stamp Set and the doily from Doily Circle Stamp Set and black ink.  I added some random washi tapes too. My next layer was Faber-Castell's Whipped Spackle over the vines stencil. Collage 2 Once it was dry, I painted over the entire surface with gelatos. Collage 3 Next, I began to build my focal image- a pot with flowers from A Bunch Stamp Set and coordinating die.  The pot was torn out of a dictionary page and painted a terra cotta color.  I layered it over the center of the canvas using the Faber-Castell Gel Medium and darkened the edges with a black marker.  I used the Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens to shadow it in even more. Collage 4 I stamped the flowers from the Bloom Stamp Set on white cardstock with black ink.  I used #16 Sunshine from the Waffle Flower Summer Blend Ink Pad to stamp each of the centers and then diecut them all out using the Bloom Die Set. Collage 5 I adhered them to the canvas with a mix of foam adhesives and regular adhesives for dimension.
