Alysha   Happy Easter everyone! Its that time again, so get out your Pan Pastels and join in with us and share your crafty projects.This week I'm sharing a Spring themed mixed media postcard. I have used Turquoise PP Ultramarine Blue PP and highlights of Permanent Red Tint. I've then highlighted areas through a stencil, added some collage and gessoed some circles then finally finished with a spritz of PP Fixative.Really looking forward to seeing your creations this week, hugs Aly xxx

Claire C   I've used my PanPastels with the lovely new Stamp Soup stamps from Polkadoodles to make this project. If you stamp with versamark it really makes your PanPastel colours pop and it gives a lovely effect on vellum too. You can find all the details on my blog

Terry; I had loads of fun making this Spring colored Frame. I have started with the background with one layer of Gesso, than I colored it with the Pearlescent Green and Orange, another layer of Light Modelling Paste and honeycomb stencil and another layer with Pearlescent Pans, for the next layer I played with White Coarse and Iridescent Paste, to give it a bit of a shine.

Than for the centre of the frame I colored the background yep again with the Pearlescent Pans and stamped a sentiment on top. Than finished it with the Gel medium. Also in the center of my frame I played with a few fabby butterflies and gave them the pearlescent green and orange colour. I worked on them with crackle accents and some 3D solution to give it a bit of diversity.  And to finish I painted the word with white paint Beautifull with the Graph It Shake Marker Glitter Gold and did the same with the tiny Dutch Doobadoo butterflies.

The products from Premium Art Brands that I worked with are:

Lou: Yippee ... I'm so glad to back after my long, protracted internet woes. I decided to alter a large thick cardboard tag with pastes, pan pastels and the new Soup Stamps from Polka Doodles.

Started with my stenciled background, added my pan pastels and then stamped out all the images colouring them with my pan pastels. To add vibrancy to the stamped images, I add a layer of ultra thick embossing powder.
