Premium Art Brands

As always our very talented DT have been working their magic to create lots of inspiration for you so let's check out their amazing project!!

Tracy Scott - happy new year beautiful creative people. Thrilled to be here today with my project. I'm loving using up all my scraps of papers, old tags, clothing tags, flash cards etc at the moment and have found that combining them with acrylic paints and PanPastels lets me create the most fabulous 'crazy towns'

Claire C Christmas is a lovely time but its a bit hectic so I've enjoyed a little peace and quiet in my craft room playing with my Pans and Stampbord to create this project using some of my favourite Premium Craft Brands stamps and lots of scratching with the fab Stampbord Scraper Tools. One of the fun things about stampbord is that no matter how dark the colour, you can add highlights and texture with these tools. It can be a bit scary to start off with but just go for it!! Another easy technique with Pans and Stampbord is to stamp with versamark to lift colour off the surface, that's how I created the dandelions and swirls on this project.

Terry: Happy New Year guys and hopefully you will have a FANTABULOUS CREATIVE YEAR....this is what I made...yep my Last Christmas Jars made for your inspiration. I worked on the background with Jute and Lace....on top of the Jar I placed some lace and snow. What I did next was color a few wooden stars with first Gesso, White Coarse and White PanPastel. The borders were colored with Metallic PanPastel. |The Wooden Star was stamped with a Christmas Sentiment and finished with Iridescent Paste. Than I got myself a string of rope and placed a brons bell on it. I did the same with the smaller Jar. Last but not least a few small stars above the big one and my Jars were finished. 

Some of the products that I worked with:

  1. The colourful crazy town made up of recycled bits is so inspiring!

  2. The "Next" button is missing from the linky so I can't add my entry :( Carol x

    1. Hi Carol, I think it must be blogger playing tricks as when I look at the post there is a box below existing entries for you to add your project. Any problems let me know and i'll try and help xx

  3. Trying to enter and it says press the next button, there isn't one! I see a pink box, two fields for name and link, but then you need the next button.

  4. Beautiful works by DT :) :)

  8. I love Pan Pastels but I have found accessing them very difficult, and had assumed that they had been discontinued. I am very pleased to see that I can buy them via the link.

  9. So glad to find this site! I love the entries and will be popping in and visiting over the next week. I am new to the blogging world and happy to find new art friends. I am happy to say I am a new follower. Dea xo
