Happy Sunday everyone!

This week I am bringing you a tag journal tag I have created using Ultramarine Blue PP, Permanent Red PP, Turquoise PP, and edged in Violet PP.

I created some heart then have embossed the background with an embossing folder and then I added a colored stamp, sentiments and ribbon embellishment.

Hope you like and I look forward to seeing your creations.
Hugs Aly xx

Hi there, lovely to be with you today. This week I decided to create a journal page in my A5 journal for you using my PanPastels for the background. They are fabulous for covering a page quickly and I allowed some of my sponge marks to show for added interest. Acrylic paints work fabulously over the PanPastels so it's easy to get some stunning effects. 
I used the Turquoise pan for this background. 

Terry: Hey there crafters out there, I had fun making a few notebooks. They all have different backgrounds and techniques. The first one is worked on with White and Brownish acrylic paint, than I played with the Iridescent Paste to give it some shine...

The following layer is Light Modelling Paste and the stencil from DD, the honeycomb...than another layer of White Coarse. The butterflies are colored with the Metallic PanPastels and painted with the Iridescent Paste

This notebook is worked on with a first layer of paper, than I used the Versamark Ink and stamped a image onto it. Than I took my Lavender color PanPastel and started to rub gently the PanPastel onto the stamped image with a soft brush. And last but not least I placed my Hello and colored everything with a last layer of Iridescent Paste....

And the last notebook is colored with Lavender after I had stamped the butterfly image onto the background. I gently placed the PanPastel onto the background with a soft brush.  The corners have a honeycomb image....And last but not least I have placed the "Cute" onto the notebook.

some of the products that I worked with are:
