Terry: Hello crafters outthere. This week I bring you a card, it is not a card that we would like to make but it is part of life eh? So I started out with the first layer of Gesso and I worked with lots of PanPastels mixed with water, On top of that I rubbed some white Coarse on the background. When I finally was happy with the result I stamped a sentiment on the card and a few Poppy's. Hope I have given you some inspiration on making a few projects for the challenge. They are very simple to make and ready to go in a half an hour.

Right back to our new challenge,  let's see what beautiful makes our DT have created this week...


Terry: So this time I made a little something WITHOUT a butterfly lol....can you believe it? Anyways, I made a little notebook or I altered a notebook. I worked my way from a plain notebook to a colored one with the use of PanPastels, Gesso, Light Modelling Paste, Iridescent Paste, a stencil with flowers and some sentiments.









Lou: I am so in love with the Belle Papillion and Bella Fleur stamps from Polkadoodles that I couldn't resist using them again. I have stamped the images either in grey or clear and then coloured everything with my pan pastels. All die cuts were also coloured with pan pastels too. I have even made my background the same way. More photos are on my blog.

Claire C: will  be joining in shortly as suffering from internet issues.

Right back to our new challenge,  let's see what beautiful makes our DT have created this week...

Claire C PanPastels are perfect for a quick scenic card as they blend so easily, especially with the colourless blender. I've used  my PanPastels to create the background before stamping the images and adding some colour with my PanPastels and Lyra pencils


Here are the colours I've used to make this card:





Lou: I decided to use my pan pastels to help stamp and colour all my images, create backgrounds, and finally to also soften the edges of all papers. Full details and more photos can be found on my blog.






Terry, Hey there crafters I had loads of fun making this Spring Canvas, playing with lots of different spring colors and I made the background with lots of PanPastels. After the first layer I thought I would work with the fabulous Stencil A5 Victorian style. It is just amazing to play with this stencil. I sprayed water on top and made sure the stencil would show after I finished playing with PanPastels. Than I placed the stencil again on my canvas and played with some crackle. Next I rubbed the PanPastels on the background that was created with the stencil and this gave such a nice effect. Since I am just in love with butterflies I colored a large butterfly with PanPastels and placed it in the centre of the canvas. Last but not least a few sentiments were glued onto the canvas. 




Products that I have worked with are:
