Anything goes at PanPastel UK

Good morning my lovelies, I hope you're enjoying a lovely lazy Sunday morning. Its my favourite time of the week (well it is once the ironing is done lol) as I can potter around and don't have to think about rushing off to work. As its Sunday morning, we've got a new challenge starting at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is a nice easy one, 'Anything Goes'. As always there's a fab prize up for grabs from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store 

For my project i've made an 8x8 canvas (a real bargain from the Works). I've used PanPastels and one of the new masks which will be released very soon for the background. I've added a lots of die cut leaves,  and flowers coloured with PanPastels, I've used the new metallic Pans for this project but its so hard to get a decent pic of the lovely shimmer. I popped in some little red berries from the Ribbon Girl and then decided to add some ivy leaves to break up all the coppers and golds. I used a Marianne die to cut these and coloured with green PanPastels. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque and to finish off I've edged the canvas with gold acrylic paint and added a little die cut butterfly with a pearl body.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Craft your Passion: autumn colours
Fab'n'Funky: Leaves
Lexis Creations: autumn colours
Oldie but Goodie: dies/punches
(my oldies are my dies)
Paper Nest Dolls: autumn/fall

Thanks so much for visiting today,
Claire xx
