*Mixing It up*....

We realise not everyone has medium ready at hand at home so if you'd like to join in this challenge you can enter any make you wish but we'll give you extra brownie points if you join in the challenge too so show us what you can do, we know you all have some awesome talents up your messy sleeves!

The winner of this challenge will be chosen at random and announced on 8th December and you'll win £30 of Premium Arts goodies! You have until 3rd December at noon to enter!

So let's get on with the challenge and the stunning inspiration from the team...

Zoe - I have mixed Bright Yellow Green Ex Dark PanPastels with Glassy Medium and put it through a mask.  Please pop along to my blog to find out more....

Claire I've used Permanent Red and Black PanPastels to create the music script for the Christmas Tree. The background was made by mixing silver PanPastel with water in a mini mister and spritzing the black card - once it was dry I stamped snowflakes with versamark ink and then applied Rich Gold PanPastel over the top....
Terry ...I altered a photo frame and had lots of fun with making my own background for the frame. I worked with Gesso, the Metallic Acrylic Mediums, crackle, Metallic PanPastels and Utee on the flowers together with embossing powder and inks. So lots of mixing with fluids me thinks xxxx
Suzi I decided to create a mini canvas, using Maimeri Iridescent Paste, Magenta Pan Pastels and my Graph'It Markers. I used the Iridescent Paste to create my embellishments as well as to colour my canvas, such a wonderful versatile product.

So there is our inspiration from the fabulously talented Pan Pastel UK team this week!...
