* PRIMA MARKETING & FABER CASTELL* BLOG HOP




Is there anything better than two companies combining their amazing products? Today we have a joint venture by Prima Marketing and Faber-Castell! Not only do our products work perfectly together, but they provide wonderful platforms for inspiration and creativity!
We challenged our talented design teams to create projects combining products just for YOU! Hopefully they will get your creativity going too.

WELCOME IF YOU CAME HOPPING FROM STACEY'S OR PRIMA'S BLOG OR FABER CASTELL'S !

Here is my project using Prima + Faber Castell's Classic and Water color Pencils. They just BLEND so Beautifully on Prima's Resistant Canvas! It is really easy; use the WATERCOLOR Pencils like how you would normally and smear with some water with a small brush.
The colors just melt before your eyes! To add dimension, I used CLASSIC COLOR PENCILS to give some shading and definition.

Wow, I'm looking at my kid's Faber Castell's Coloring Pencils with a different eyes now! I didn't know they could be SO COOL !
Great we can share the pencils :) At the same time, i did some coloring on the ever so versatile doilies...
