So on to  our new challenge and this week our theme is 

" Frame it "

although our challenges are now fortnightly, this is a 1 week challenge and no its not to confuse you, its because we've got something very exciting coming up so we needed to tweak the challenges a little bit so keep popping back to see what we've got up our sleeves!

Claire  I've used an mdf blank which had gone totally wrong and smothered it in Maimeri Light Modelling Paste, adding texture with a palette knife for my frame. Once it was dry I added colour with PanPastels (Raw Umber, Neutral Grey and white) and sealed with Maimeri Matte Gel. The image has also been coloured wih PanPastels, the fence was added using a White Graph'It Shake pen, full details are on my blog

Tracy - Hello sweet friends, I had so much fun creating and framing my art this week using Pan Pastels, Mediums and a Stencil Mask. First I created a little mixed media art . . .

. . . before turning my attention to the wooden frame . . . 

. . . applying touches of Metallic Light Gold, Pathalo Blue Shade and Titanium White Pan Pastels to blend it all together. More Pictures on my blog here. xx

 Terry Hey there guys, I had loads of fun with the Springfeel colours, used Gesso and Light Modelling Paste and a Stencil Mask on the background , PanPastels offcourse and butterflies from the wendy and her sentiment cause butterflies are fragile....More detaills on my blog......

Lou: I have made a traditional frame using dies to house my sentiment (new designs created by Nikky for PCB). I have created my background using a mixture of distress inks, pan pastels and stamped images .... however all my images have been coloured/painted using pan pastels!

The added embellishments are from Doobadoo paper cuts - buttons, feathers, swirls and butterflies. I have highlighted my flowers and leaves using a GraphIt white shaker pen. Full details of my project can be found on my blog and I would love it if you popped over to say "hi".
