I have a fun and easy project for you using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products with Linnie Blooms Mixed Stitched Media Products.  I used Linnie Blooms 5 x 7 canvas sheet, Sunflower, Petal Flower, and Leaves in two sizes.

Look at all the cute canvas goodness that came my way!  I chose the adorable flowers and canvas page to create a little fall message!

I picked some autumnish colors to use and grabbed several mediums to play with! I started with laying down some of the Gelatos® colors in Mango, Butterscotch, Banana, Iced Coffee, Cinnamon,  and Iced Chai.  Once they were scribbled on the 5 x 7 sheet, I sprayed it all with water and made sure the colors were saturated.

Once dry, I got an intense color and started layering more media on it. I took a bit of the Iced Coffee Gelatos® color and mixed it with some Whipped Spackle on a craft mat.  I wanted more sparkle so I added a little bit of Texture Luxe in Gold to the mixture.  Ooooohhhhh... so metallic!

I put it through a stencil from the Mixed Media Stencils 101 collection and added Texture Gems in Gold to accent the shapes.

Then, onto the flowers... I wanted to add a lot of pattern and texture to make it stand out.  So, I used a foam applicator to apply Iced Coffee through the arrow stencil.

I applied Mango and Cinnamon Gelatos® colors to the smaller flower and added water to blend.  Some Texture Luxe™ in Gold was added through the dot stencil to the middle of the smallest flower. I had stamped a text pattern on it with a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Brown before applying the Luxe™.  Once dry, I added Texture Gems in Gold for a center.

The leaves were done the same way as the flowers.
