Life is about using all the crayons!!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for all your sweet comments on Brookie's post!! She loves me reading them to her! :)
 

This week on the Helmar DT blog, we are sharing our projects using the AWESOME Faber Castell products they were gracious enough to share with us!! 

For my project, I made a canvas!!! (Yes, I know, I have been making canvasses like crazy for awhile now... and believe it or not, I am working on opening an ETSY store soon for them!!! YAY!!) --

Anyhoo... I have had this idea stuck in my head since I saw this quote on Facebook -- and I was excited to finally execute it using some amazing Faber Castell markers and pastel pencils!!

I did my entire background on here using Faber Castell goodies!!!




I used a bunch of different alphas that I have stored in a jar...took me FOREVER to find all the right letters that would fit! lol!!! To adhere everything down, I used Helmar's Craft Glue!!!



If you followed along on 3 Cool Chick seminar with Yvonne, Amy and myself... you will remember the "twine" frame I made!!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
