Good morning :-) We've got a new challenge at PanPastel UK and we want to see you use a new technique this time. I love this kind of challenge, it certainly gets the old brain cell working overtime lol. I've really been enjoying playing with the Maimeri mediums from Your Creativity Store and for my new technique I decided to try colouring the gorgeous 'Glassy Gel' with alcohol inks.
I've made a photo frame, and gone for a masculine colour palette for my project. I used two of the square canvases and began by adding some colour with turquoise tint panpastel and a little tuquoise shade. I mixed the Glassy Gel with some ginger and expresso alcohol ink, and applied through a Crafters Workshop Template.
I just love working with glassy gel, it really gives a gorgeous effect and I'm chuffed to bits that it takes colour so easily. Once it was dry I added shades of brown PanPastel and stamped on some Stampers Anonymous butterflies and text. I used the same colours on the inside, adding a frame made with my new nesties and a Chocolate Baroque sentiment.
I've used grungeboard hinges, coloured of course with more PanPastels to join the two canvases, adding a little Pebeo Fantasy paint to the hinges. You can see the hinges a bit better in this pic
