Alysha - Happy Sunday! Its time to get your Pan Pastels out and make something for our fortnightly challenge. This project I made by creating the background using various colours of Pan Pastels through a floral mask, I then added some flowers, a butterfly and a sentiment from Polkadoodles Lavender Tea Collection CD.  Looking forward to seeing your creations this fortnight, hugs Aly xx


Tracy Scott - Hey there creative lovelies!! What creative goodness have you been up to this week??
I've been playing with paper napkins, index cards and of course my delicious PanPastels!!


The napkins that I used were black and white and once I had adhered to my card with gel medium and dried I started to colour using watersoluble crayons. Once these were dry I had to add my gorgeous PanPastels over the top to highlight and bring the colours to life !!


Finishing off with some sparkly glitter they look like a real work of art. Thanks for stopping by, why not give it a go and create your own beautiful blooms !! Xx


Terry I had fun making a baby card, you cannot have enough of them in the craftroom eh? I worked on the background with Purple Panpastels, layer on top is made with Light Modelling Paste and Crackle made with a few stencils. I also used some Pearlescent and White Coarse.


The heartshaped die is colored with even darker Purple Panpastel and sealed with Glossy Accents.
I colored the borders with Distress ink and with Metallic PanPastels. Last but not least I placed a sentiment.



Some of the products that I have worked with are:




Claire C I've used some of my all time favourite colour PanPastels to make this project, you can find links to them below the pics and more details on my blog


I've used one of my favourite techniques for the background, once I'd stencilled the leaves, I reapplied the stencil and them added Maimeri Glassy Gel Medium before removing the stencil and sprinkling over tiny microbeads









Lou Sims: I used my white pearl medium to create a wonderful pearlescent finish to my paper pieced houses. I also used it on top of the white gesso which helped prepare the MDF key shape. This created a shimmery background.


I used turquoise pan pastel to cover my stampbord pieces before creating my house scene. I then punched a hole and made a keyrinf.

Alysha - Happy Sunday! Its time to get your Pan Pastels out and make something for our fortnightly challenge. This week I have made a card using Violet and White Pan Pastel, I have used a couple of masks for building up the background, White gel pen for accents then stamped out the dragonfly and added a sentiment - I then matted and layered onto a card.Looking forward to seeing your creations this fortnight, hugs Aly xx



Claire C I've used my PanPastels  to create this card using some gorgeous new stamps from Polkadoodles






Terry I had lots of fun altering a square box, the background was made with Gesso and I played with an ABC stencil and Light Modelling Paste. I worked with Pearlescent PanPastels and the colour this time was pinkish and brown. A bit darker brown was used on top of the letters on the background. All around the borders I placed a piece of lace. On top of the box I glued some hearts. I placed some rope around the hearts and glued them on top of eachother. Last but not least I colored a little butterfly and put it near the hearts. If you wanna see some more pictures just click on my name and it will take you to my blog where you can see some more pictures. 


Some of the products that I worked with are:




Lou: I have used my pan pastels to alter a frame I found in a charity shop for 10p. Stamped images are from Polka Doodles. More details are on my blog.
