I have an 8x8 card to share with you all today, The background was made by laying down Burnt Sienna, and a small amount of Yellow Ochre. I laid a stencil over the top and used a rubber to remove the pastel and reveal the pattern. I then placed the brick stencil over the top and applied more Burnt Sienna through the stencil. I stamped out the birds and flowers using black waterproof ink before colouring them in with Turquoise, Blue Tint, Titanium White and Permanent Red. You can find more details on my Blog.






 I've been playing with my PanPastels and Foamiran, and wow they colour the foam beautifully to make flowers!

Well done ladies, beautiful artwork! Please help yourselves to a badge for your blog and we hope you'll join us again soon!

Now on to our new challenge and as usual our DT have been working their magic to create some stunning projects to inspire you ....


For this challenge, I have created a journal page. I did a base layer using Orange Tint, Permanent Red Tint and Phthalo Blue Tint. I then mixed some of the Red and Blue Tints to gesso, this made me a paint that I could then stamp onto the background with bold background stamps.  I used Magenta Shade and Violet to lay colour onto my flowers and blended them together with a water brush, more details and photos can be found on my blog. 








I've made another tag for my tag journal using my PanPastels, 








Lou: This is part one of my project! You see I can't show the full project - only a sneak peek of the final piece - as it's being used for a new stamp launch on C&C (29th June 2017) for Nikky Hall of Polkadoodles. I've used stampbord and my pan pastels, (plus the new stamps) to create a mirror ...



More photos and details of how the mirror frame is made can be found on my blog.

Terry: I have made a few canvasses, the background was made with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and a flowerstencil, I worked with a bunch of fabulous PanPastel colours such as Metallic PanPastels, White Coarse and crackle. The Butterflies were worked on with Crackle and Metallic PanPastels. the finishing touch was made with Gel Medium.


I have worked with the following products:
