I am with Neocolors II!

I really love the Neocolors II, too! They are quite easy to work with and I like the result even though I'm not very good at drawing. I've had the box with 15 crayons for a while but I decided to get some more colors since I really do like them.
I also love my Distress Stains! Did not know if I needed them at first but they come in very handy to color backgrounds and washi tapes, just like in this picture.
The only rubberstamp used in this picture is a stamp for stamping patterns for cross stitching which suited the title "All patched up and ready to face the world".

I am with gelatos!

Lately on the net I have seen that a lot of people have started using gelatos, and it looked like a fun product to use. I also like the look of them, they actually do look like makeup! I decided to get some since they are reasonably inexpensive compared with other products. Mixed media is something I want to do!

I found it quite hard to move the color around - it looked so easy on YouTube! But mayby I didn't use enough color? Or maybe it was because I used aquarelle paper? Anyway, I had great fun! This is my first try with the gelatos. On top of the gelatos I used acrylics, carpentry Filler (instead of embossing creme), Distress Stains, Posca pens, stamps, mist and bling.
