Day 2: Taylored Expressions & Faber-Castell blog hop!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Taylored Expressions & Faber-Castell blog hop! If you came from Tiffany Johnson's blog, you are on the right track! If not, be sure to not miss a beat by starting at the Taylored Expressions blog

For my project I wanted something fun and happy. So I created this little mini 4x6 canvas for my home. I received a set of the Faber-Castell PITT brush markers and I couldn't wait to try them! I used the Taylored Expressions Quatrefoil cutting plate for the background and colored it with the PITT markers. I had 3 colors and was able to create a cool faded effect.
