Alysha - Hi Happy New Year and to start off a lovely card made using Polkadoodles NEW Papillon Stamps with a soft Pink Pan Pastel Background. Looking forward to seeing your creations.
hugs Aly xxx




Terry: Hiya guys Happy New Year to all of you.....I wanted to show you a few of the projects that I made for the Christmas Fair at work....I got the idea from a friend she made a few of these pots that she worked on with Fur and stars.....so I thought this would be just great to make for the Christmas Fair. I had these glass pots and dressed them up with Fur......than I used two pieces of rope, the first one went on top of the pot right underneith the moss and the second pieces of rope in the middle of the pot. I worked on the stars with Gesso and Crackle....when they were dry I placed a layer of White Coarse and to cover it all up I painted the stars with Maimeri Mat Gel. To finish my projects I placed moss in the pot and around the top of the pot. Last but not Least I placed a Hyacint in the middle.


Some of the products that I have worked with:






Claire C I've had a little time off work so decided to play in my art journal and followed the free Life Book lesson kindly offered by Tam Laporte from last years Life Book. I've used lots of different products on this project and of course my lovely PanPastels. You can find all the details over on my blog




Tracy Scott - morning lovelies and a very happy new year to you all. We can't wait to see what you come up with for the final challenge of the year...


I've been playing with limited supplies at the moment. I sketched an coloured my girl using only my beloved PanPastels and coloured pencils.

Tracy Scott - hey there gorgeous people, I love to have ready made backgrounds that I can use in my art journal and I've been experimenting recently with shadow and light. I had so much fun creating this still life using my PanPastels over an acrylic painted background. Give it a try...I guarantee you'll never look at still life the same way again !!!

                                             


Alysha - This week I have created a card mixed media style. I have swept the background in Pan Pastels and used masks to create the background then built it up with some butterflies and a sentiment. Hugs Aly xxx

Claire C  I've made a Christmas card for my DT project this week, PanPastels are perfect for scenic cards as they blend so beautifully and if you go wrong you can rub them out with a pencil eraser lol.









Terry; Hey guys, Christmas is near so I thought that I make a Christmas Card, a simple one but I am very happy with the outcome. The background is made with A piece of paper. On top I worked with a snowflake stencil from Dutch Doobadoo and used Light  Modelling Paste on it. The White Coarse PanPastel was used on top of the snowflakes to give them a bit of a shine. Than I placed a cute image of a Vintage girl. I wrapped a piece of rope around the card and placed a sentiment underneith.

A few of the products that I have used are:

A little star was colored with some ink and I have wrapped a piece of rope around it. First I placed a cute vintage image on the gift box, than the star and last but not least a Merry Christmas sentiment.

Tracy Scott - Hey there beautiful people, hope you are all keeping well and wrapping up warm this week. My post this week is a 'DreamCatcher' in acrylics and PanPastels in my Art Journal. I love these magical things and the Pans were a real 'dream' to work with alongside my acrylics and add that little special something to the background for the finished piece...




Terry: I have made a project for Christmas, I started the background with Gesso and second layer with a snowflake stencil from Dutch Doobadoo, I used the Light Modelling Paste to create the snowflakes..on top of the snowflakes I worked with the Light Blue PanPastel and White Coarse to give it a bit of a snowy shine. 


For decorations I placed this cute image of the vintage girl, A few stars are worked on with PanPastels and crackle and the top layer is Gel Medium...the front and back of my project were decorated with some lace. Last but not least I placed a sentiment.
