If you have arrived from Rita Barakat's blog, you are at the right place!  To start at the beginning of the blog hop, head over to Faber Castell Design Memory Craft!


Here is a sneak peak of how to use Faber Castell Gelatos.

For this page from a 50th Wedding Anniversary Album I made for my best friends' parents, I used the metallic gelatos in silver and gold to help me with the shells at the bottom of this page.  

 Overall, in the book, I used black and white papers, with black, white, and gold embellishments.  For the shells at the bottom of this page, then, it was great to have such a creamy, easy-to-use medium to make the shells a nice gold color.   At the top of the page, I used the same gold Gelatos to edge the trim, keeping with the theme of the 50th Wedding Anniversary.


Here is a close-up of the bottom of the page so you can get a better look of how fully the Gelatos let me cover the shells.

Thank you for letting me share this sneak-peak with you!
My full project, including pictures and in-depth instruction will be on my blog

Next, you should hop right over to Jill Foster's blog to see what awesome stuff she's made!
