Right, back to business and our new challenge. Our DT have been busy bees creating lots of beautiful artwork to inspire you ....

Tracy - hey there gorgeous ones. Hope you are all well this week ???
This week I've used my PanPastels in all shades of blue and green and mixed with acrylic paints to make a fun random art journal page. The pans coordinate so well with acrylic paints and are a perfect surface to paint onto. I started with a layer of pans blended into the pagans then used a mix of pastel circles mixed with acrylics to create a completely random page. Get your pans out and give it a try !!!

Alysha - Happy Sunday! Its that time again, so get out your Pan Pastels and join in with us and share your crafty projects.

As always the theme is Anything Goes Mixed Media

This week I'm sharing a clean and simple card I have made using the pearlescent blue color, I have versamark stamped the flowers and brushed over with the Pans and then mixed with a little medium to paint onto the flowers and butterfly.

Really looking forward to seeing your creations this week

hugs Aly xx

Terry Today is Mothersday in Holland and I made a little something for my dear Mother....
What I have made for her is a Notebook....she allways writes in a notebook and I thought I would make one wth her daughter on the frontpage.Some cute picture eh? 

The background is made with Gesso and Painted with Pinkish Paint on top I stamped a sentiment stamp all over.....and last layer is Iridescent Paste to give it a shine....

The flowers are colored with Waterpaint and the top layer is Iridescent Paste. I placed a heart in the middle of the flowers and underneith the flowers I placed the word Mamma....that means Mother in Dutch....Underneith my baby picture I worked with lace and to finish decorating it I wrapped a little ribbon around the Notebook.....

The products that I have worked with are:
