Nikky...I really REALLY love colouring with my PanPastels, the super smoothness of the pigment makes it so easy to create really soft blending very easily and more importantly for me - very quickly. I'm quite a speedy colourer inner anyway but this fish is A4 and only took me about 2.5hours from start to finish because you can cover such a large area and using the right PanPastel tools means the coverage is great.
In hindsight I wish I'd printed this image onto Bristol board or a smooth watercolour board as the results would've been much more vibrant but I didnt plan ahead, so this is just on a smooth paper (Ultimate Graphic from Polkadoodles). I had quite a lot of crumbles because it didnt really have enough tooth for me but I still like the results, just wanted a bit more colour. I used small paintbrushes dry and the PanPastel tiny applicators (like makeup applicators) to apply colour into the fine areas. The only other product I used was a grey Graph'It brushliner pen just to add some shadow detail back in on the fins as I lost it a little and the paper wouldnt let me add any more pastel, and the addition of the white dots with my Graph'It Shake White pen which I cant live without - it literally works on ANYTHING. Sorry I've not listed my colours I used as there was quite a lot on this piece, I just mixed everything I had to hand LOL.

Tracy Evans - I have opted for some lovely warm Autumnal shades this week.

Yvonne - Sparkly butterfly.  All details are on my blog.

Tracy Scott - I love adding my PanPastels on top of acrylic paints. It creates such a lovely soft effect. 

Claire C I've been colouring with my PanPastels too, such a quick and easy technique! I've used Lyra Polycolour Pencils to add detail to the houses. The die cut letters were also coloured with my Pans

Terry: I had fun with another canvas and used my favourite vintagy image, the background was made with a layer of paper and on top lots of Matt Gel and Glassy Gel. Than I covered the top with a wooden heart and some lace underneith the heart.  I played with some roses and a metall heart colored them all with pearlescent and panpastels. To finish my canvas I placed some hashtags.

Lou: I have been completing my suitcase  project which I started earlier (see here) with some additions to the inside of the case. Full details are on my blog.
