Now let's see what the DT have been up to this week ......

Tracy Evans - I decided to experiment with a mixed media canvas today experimenting with combining PanPastels with other colouring mediums.

Lou: I have used my pan pastels and PCB STOP stamp set to create some coasters. I ended up making two different colour ways as couldn't decide which colour appealed to me the most (lol). Lots more photos etc are on my blog.

Products and links:

Claire C I've had a lovely time creating this project using stampbord and my PanPastels, you can find all the details on my blog.

Here are links to the goodies I've used to make this project:

Terry, I had fun making a simple though fancy notebook, worked with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and the Diamond Stencil for the back of the notebook. The front was made with yep also the Diamond stencil, but covered with Light modelling Paste and lots of Pearlescent Pans, Pans and topped with Matt Gel.

We hope the DT have inspired you to get messy and creative, and don't forget to link your project HERE.

We'll be back next week with another new "anything goes" challenge. Until then, have a wonderful crafty week.
