Now back to our new challenge, let's have a peek at the inspiration from the DT ....


Alysha - This fortnight I have created a tag using yellow and orange pan pastels and stamping using versamark and dusting over with the Pans.
Looking forward to seeing your projects, hugs Aly xx




Terry  I 've had a lot of fun with making a gift . The background is made with a layer of Gesso what I 've smeared on the heart first and then when it was half dry there have taken it off again .
Than I worked with Light Modelling Paste and a Roses Stencil and once again I took it half off again.....this way you create a very nice old look. Actually I stumbled on it by accident lol..because it was difficult to place the stencil in the heart.One of the last layers that I played with is a stamp from a Rose. I stamped on top of all the other layers with the Metallic PanPastels and Ink. All around my two hearts I played with heartsy lace.
The aim of my project is to put it down as decoration on a table If you want to see more pictures you can click my name and it will take you to my blog.


Here are some of the products that I have used:





Claire C

 Pans are perfect for making a quick scenic card, they really make light work of this kind of card! I've used some old favourite stamps and added some of the gorgeous new Tropical Stamps from Polkadoodles to create this card, using  my Pans for some summer colour.

Well done ladies, your projects were outstanding!! Please help yourself to a badge for your blogs if you'd like one :-)

Now back to business and as always our DT have created some awesome artwork, if you have time, grab a cuppa and check out their blogs for all the details
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.
