My oh my...what a HOP!

Goodness, gracious!
As promised by Unity there will be new releases
every week from now to the end of the year.
 
I'm sure you're all familiar with Angie Blom's girls.
Today's release is going to blow you away.
You can find them all HERE.
 
 
I am always amazed by how she keeps each one unique
and just as fresh as ones she released two years ago.
 
AND! in addition to fabulous new releases,
I can't believe we're hopping with Faber-Castell this week.
 

 I was so excited to receive some of their products
and have a chance to play.
 
I had no idea that Gelatos could be used just like water colors.
 
What I did first was take one of the fabulous new Angie-Girls
(Lilli) and color her up with Gelatos.  So easy.
 
Here are pictures of my pallette and my card.  I believe in having a lot
of stuff to make cards with.  But in order to have stuff, you gotta
save money somewhere.  This is why styrofoam plates are my go-to
pallette of choice, ha, ha!  I've even been known to wash 'em off and
reuse them when the colors get too muddled!
 

 
 
Next I used a wide variety of Faber-Castell product to make
a canvas (something I've not done in years).
Gesso, Gel Medium, Whipped Spackle and Gelatos
are all used on this along with the Unity Kits
He's a Wordy Buck and You Will Shine
 
 
 

So now you know the scoop.

There's also a huge Girl's Weekend Sale
because our very own Jolande is visiting Unity!


Everyone who has commented on the Unity blog any day this
week and/or on everyone's blog from this hop is going to
be eligible for our awesome prize drawing.
You have until Sunday (9/21) to comment and
the winner will be announced on Monday evening.

Who wouldn't want to win all of the fabulous new
Angie-Girls and this assortment of Faber-Castell product?

 

Please leave everyone some love (it really inspires us) and do so
on the Faber-Castell blog also.
