Yvonne - this week I have an MDF clock which I made for my craft room.  Love the ombré effect you can achieve very easily with PanPastels.


Terry, for this weeks inspiration I made a Notebook, yep the vintagy that's my way lol...I worked on the background with Gesso, When it was dry I colored it with the Pearlescent Orangy PanPastel. Than I placed the Roses Stencil from DD on top of the Notebook and played with Light Modelling Paste. I dried it with the Heattool, took me way to long to wait untill it was dry, so heattool on it and I chose the Metallic brown PanPastel to color the roses a bit to make it look even more vintagy. Another Layer of Pearlescent PanPastel. Than I started decorating the Notebook, I love vintagy so I chose a Vintage girl image, Underneith the image I worked with lace and I placed some Sweetheart Blossoms. I colored them with Iridescent Paste and glued them on the Notebook. And last but not least I wrapped a piece of rope around the Notebook and wanted to place one word on it. And a little butterfly to finish my project for this weeks inspiration. You want to see more pictures, come on over to my blog by clicking on my  name.

Claire C I've made a little box on a stand using Stampbord and my PanPastels this week. Stampbord is really sturdy so its great for making boxes, I just used strong PVA glue to stick the decorated Stampbord squares together to create this. The Stampbord tools are perfect for creating highlights on your projects.

Katie I have made a mixed media card by using Magenta and Blue Pan Pastels to create a textured background.

I first blended Magenta with a little Blue and used it to colour the blank card base before applying a stencil. I then rubbed more of the Pastels over the stencil.

The image is coloured with Sepia and gold inks to create a metallic look

I then added the layers and placed the image over the top
