Tracy S - Hi all you lovely people out there. It's such a great pleasure to be here with you and on this fabulous team. I look forward to getting to know you all better. For my first project I went whimsy with my pan pastels in my dylusions art journal. Love these fabulous colours.....
Products I used:

Yvonne - Pan pastels and masking tape.  All the details are over on my blog.  Look forward to seeing you there.


Lou: I have been inspired to make another tag card with lots of layers smoothered in pan pastels. It was also a good chance to use up lots of "bits". Full details are on my blog.
Products I used:

Terry I made a few labels to put on a rose, for my girls, they gave it to our dearest neighbourlady and 3th mother who has sadly passed away. The girls wrote a few sentences on the back. I altered a wooden heart to give to her. I worked with Gesso for the background, Used Light modelling paste onto a DD stencil and crackled it. I colored the labels and heart with the Metallic PanPastels and some Pearlescent Pans. To decorate it some more I placed a few butterflies on top to symbolise our dearest neighbour and his wife to fly off to they can be together.....
Some of the products that I have worked with are:

Claire C I've made a little canvas using PanPastels mixed with gesso for the background and i've also used my Pans to colour the image, adding some definition  with my Graph'It markers, you can find all the details on my blog.

Hopefully that'll have given you loads of inspiration to play along with our challenge!!

Now lets see what the DT have been busy creating this week

Yvonne - Distressed Panpastels!!!!  All the information on how I distressed Panpastels on my blog.

Claire C I've used stampbord ATCs, PanPastels along with some of the gorgeous stamps from Premium Craft Brands and of course my stampbord tools to create this little pencil pot. All the deets are on my blog

Terry I have made a card for a "sad" occasion.....The background was made with corrugated card and Gesso mixed with Crackle and Metallic Pans...I scraped the borders and placed it onto a darkbrown piece of cardstock...I played with the Metallic PanPastels and a stampset of flowers.....and Embossingpowder.I have placed a piece of lace at the bottom of the card and a few butterflies flying off in the air......and finished my "sad|" card with the sentiment Thinking of You......

Soem of the products I worked with are: 

Lou: I have made a CAS style card using PCB stamps, stampbord, distress inks and pan pastels. A really quick card to make and I'm not sure why CAS scares me so much.
