 I have been playing with Faber-Castell's Gelatos and Big Brush Pitt Pens!  I love them...I wanted to share a couple pages out of my art journal.  Above I found this quote on Pinterest and loved it.  I new I had to add it in to one of my favorite quotes.  I finger painted the background with Gelatos and then added the heart and some stamps.  I used the Journaling Pitt pens to create the words...love how black the ink is...even when you color on top!
 For this one, I stamped the butterflies (from Impression Obsession) and colored them in with the Big Brush Pitt Pens...added some more Gelato to the background and another saying. I absolutely love the vibrancy of the Pitt Pens...they are AMAZING!
This one is actually all Pitt Pen.  I wanted to see if I could achieve a watercolor look with them as well.  I colored the Pitt Pen onto my craft sheet (Ranger) and picked it up with a waterbrush.  The water from the waterbrush moved the ink so nicely...loved the light effect that it gave.  I then colored my stamp directly with Pitt Pen and spritzed it lightly with water, then stamped it.  Love the way it turned out.  
Have you played with any of these mediums yet?  If not...give it a try...I'm sure you will fall in love with them.
