Tracy Scott - it's lovely to be here this week with you all. I love to mix my mediums together and play and experiment. This week I've been creating whimsy animals in my journal and playing with acrylic paints, pencils and my fabulous PanPastels. The pans just add the perfect finishing touch to every project.
Yvonne - for this Challenge I set myself a personal Challenge which was to only use things I had on my desk which were leftover from previous projects. I started with a base which had been partly embossed through an embossing folder and then it had texture paste put through a stencil which had been left over from a card I'd made a couple of weeks ago. The stems and flowers had mostly been stamped and coloured with ink but I added metallic panpastels which made them ping!! A photo step by step is on my blog if you'd like to pop along to take a look.
Terry: I really had fun making a set of Candle holders for Christmas....I just love altering stuff and these glass jars were just the perfect fit for a Christmas gift. I started out with placing the lace onto the Glass Jar and worked on the Wooden Stars, I colored them with the White PanPastels by mixing the white PanPastel with Water and White Coarse. I glued the small and large stars onto eachother and onto the Glass Jar. Last but not least I attached some snow onto my project and inside of the Jar. And a wooden sentiment will tell you that this is a Xmas Gift.
The products that I have worked with are:
Claire C I've made a Christmas decoration this week, using my PanPastels to add some delicate pastel colours and some sparkle too!
I coloured the vellum flowers in the Christmas baubles with PanPastels, vellum isn't the sort of surface that works well with PanPastels but if you dab the vellum with a versamark inkpad the Pans stay put and have even more intensity of colour. I've also used Pans on my wallhanging too, they are great with embossing powders as they don't seem to have any static so you don't get messy bits of embossing powder where you don't want them....
Gorgeous makes ladies! We'll be back next week with lots more artwork and the winners announcement from our last challenge too.
