Here's what I created using products from Faber-Castell and myStamp BOX:
It's the latest page from my aRt journal.  I combined a generous supply of mSB stamp sets with some fabulous goodies from our Faber-Castell partner company to create the background of this page entitled "find your way home". 

Here are some close-ups:

It's so easy to play with the Faber-Castell products that helped me create the base background for this page.  I used a variety of products included in the Mixed Media Sampler (Blue):
Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil
PITT Pastel Pencil
Stamper's Big Brush
Metallic PITT Artist Pen
Metallic Gelato

I also used the following mSB stamp sets:
Striped Stems, Rough Copy, What's your number?, Road Trip, Itty Bitty's, Lovely Houses and Backgrounds.

Now it’s time to HOP along to the mSB Blog and check out the designs there.  Don’t forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN one of our THREE product giveaways!

Happy Hopping!!

Today we head out west to Carter's hockey provincials in Souris.  I'll share photos next week and let you know how they did.  Regular season is coming to a close.........then comes Extended Season.............and then comes some Summer Hockey.
