Terry Hey there guys, so I had a hubby that was having his birthday and I did not know what to give I thought of a large envelope and worked on it mixing three Pans, the green, lemon and blue pans. Stamped a Pilote image on top and lots of background sentiments. Then on top the DD stencil with the darker green pan. The Tag was made with a stencil, Light Modelling Paste and the mixed three colours Pans.

Claire  I've made a canvas using PanPastels, my favourite butterfly stencil and Maimeri Iridescent Paste. Guess what colours I used to make the purples on my canvas ......

Did you guess?? I used magenta and turquoise, adding a wee bit of magenta extra dark too!! Its so much fun to mix colours with PanPastels, they blend beautifully
The chipboard letters were coated with Maimeri iridescent Paste and sprinkled with silver PanPastel
and Glitter, I've also added a bit of crackle here and there for some texture

Tracy -Hi everyone, my inspiration for my little wood art today, came from pretty shades of blue Pan Pastels, touches of metallic Pan Pastels, lots of yummy Maimeri Mediums . . .
. . . along with a few new products,  Dutch Doobadoo Fabric Art Jeans and Art Masks.
 You can find all the information about how I put this together on my blog here. xoxo

Lou: I have used the pink mask stencil on my project with Maimeri Matt Gel, white acyrlic paint and soft gold metallic pan pastel.

I have highlighted all the sticker elements using the Glitter Shake GraphIt pens for an added "pop". The foam stickers were also covered in white acyrlic paint and then highlighted using a mixture of meatllic soft gold pan pastel and the Glitter Shaker pens.

Nikky...Last week I was busy making lots and lots of samples for the UK trade show at NEC and I made this as I was messing about you do...I am absolutely in love with the brand new range of Dutch Doobadoo products which Premium Craft Brands are now distributing in the UK and I cannot stop using them! I'm going stencil crazy but here I actually used the dot stencil over the top of one of the kraft hearts and also added some of the bricks from the brick stencil onto the little piece of denim at the top. I've had that watch face in my stash for years and not wanted to use it because it was too precious but I liked this enough to bring it out of the dark! 

Keep checking in to see the fab tutorials we've got to inspire you!!
