Alysha - Happy Sunday! Its that time again, so get out your Pan Pastels and join in with us and share your crafty projects.

This week I'm sharing a canvas I have made using Pearlesant yellow and pink pans. I have versamarked feathers onto the canvas background and brushed the pans over then I have created a matted image using an embossing folder and coloring over this to highlight the embossing behind the image.
Really looking forward to seeing your creations this week

hugs Aly xx

Terry; Hey there guys, I had fun making this gift box. I worked on the background with Purple and Lavender colours PanPastels

on top I used a layer of White Coarse to give it a bit of a shine, used Light Modelling Paste with the Roses Stencil, did I tell you that I loveeee Roses.....and played with some crackle and both sides of the little gift box have a piece of lace with pearls to finish my project.

The products I have played with are:

Claire C I love to use my Pans to create scenic projects, they are so easy to use and so forgiving too. I've been playing with the fabulous Stamp Soup stamps from Polkadoodles to create this project

I've used lots of my favourite PanPastels too .....

Lou: I have been using my pan pastels to colour my images, using my pans both dry and wet (water colouring) to create a simple, layered floral scene. Stamps are Lemonade Fizz, Soup Stamp set.
