Alysha - Happy Fathers Day and time to play with your pans my first offering this week obviously has to do with Fathers Day and I have created a canvas using several shades of blue Pans and then created the heart, splattered paint and added a sentiment to it. This has been made as a gift from my daughter to her daddy.

My second offering is a Vintage Card using Permanent Red Pan Pastel in varying degrees of subtlety throughout the card  

So join us and let us see your projects for this week!

Terry: I had loads of fun altering a photoframe for my colleque. Remember the notebook with that stunning image in it? Well this is for her mother, she misses her girl that much, so I thought I would make a frame for her with her daughter in it. I did not make the image though, that was made by an artist. I made the frame. I started out with metall foil and embossed it. I added alcohol inks and loads of PanPastels on it and tried to make it look old. I think that worked out great, don't you think.....
So the background was done with lots of PanPastels, the inside was colored with PanPastels too, I worked with the Metallic PanPastels I just love them cause they give such a rich colour to your project, very nice shimmery colour. 
For decorations I used a butterfly die and embossed that one too with the Metall Foil. Than I just had to colour it with the Metallic Pans too....and last but not least I placed the Pennib on top of it.
You wanna see more pictures.....than I suggest you check out my blog just click my name and it will take you there.


Claire C I've been playing with my Pans to colour this lovely lady. Pans are brilliant for faces and hair as they blend so easily it's really quick work
