And finally...any words to our readers?   Enjoy crafting and have fun!   

Hello, everyone, Meihsia here with a fun and colorful project for summer using Gelatos®, Stamper's Big Brush Pens and Paper Craft Crayon™. I have taken many photos of kids at their summer activities and I am going to use this frame for one of those photos.  This frame is also a beautiful wall decor for kids room without picture on it.
Here are some steps to show you how I made this frame. First, I covered this 8" x 10" chipboard frame with wrapping tissue using Gel Medium then colored it with Gelatos.
After drying the colored background with heat tool, I used modeling paste and stencil to make some dimensional images and I colored those images with Stamper's Big Brush Pens.
I also used stamps and Stamper's Big Brush Pens to add some lines and dots randomly to make this frame more interesting.
Paper Craft Crayons were used here to make texture and shade on the edges and background.

The last step is using PITT artist pen to outline the images then applying Glaze on the images to add a beautiful sheen.

Here are some close-ups to show you the beautiful results using those wonderful Faber-Castell products.


I hope you get a chance to use these great coloring products and make something fun for this summer. And enjoy!
