Its the Little Things….

Hi there hope you have all had a lovely Easter holiday and not eaten too much chocolate lol
Today I have made a canvas inspired by the lovely Katy Leich

I have scraped some Violet Pan Pastels into clear Gesso to paint the background then I have made some homemade texture paste and ran it through circular masks. I then stamped out a sentiment and stamped an Indigo Blu butterfly onto some Clearly for Art modelling film and heat set them into a "flying" position then just popped it all together on the canvas.

Happy Easter everyone!

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

As always the theme is Anything Goes Mixed Media

This week I'm sharing a Spring themed mixed media postcard.

I have used Turquoise PP Ultramarine Blue PP and highlights of Permanent Red Tint
I've then highlighted areas through a stencil, added some collage and gessoed some circles then finally finished with a spritz of PP Fixative

Really looking forward to seeing your creations this week

My Journal Pages 1 and 2

I have been entering into the world of journalling over the past few weeks and I know it leaves a lot to be desired at the moment but I'm enjoying playing and I like what
Ive created so far and that's what its all about right?
I would like to say that this has been a lot of fun for me as I'm experimenting with new things, these pages for example have been created using Pan Pastels and gelatos and an old book I ripped up to create the houses and the sun.

Have a go free your creative streak it really is good fun.

Get your Pan Pastels here Premium Craft Brands
Have a fab Easter Weekend
