Stencilling at Premium Craft Brands

Good morning folks and happy Sunday to you! This week at Premium Craft Brands Challenge we're having a few changes and our challenges are going to be every two weeks to give everyone more time to enter and to give us more time to share some top tips and tutorials. There are loads of exciting new products coming up too so all in all its a very exciting time in PanPastel Land!
Here's my inspiration project for our 'Stencilling' challenge

I found this long thin canvas at the Works, a real bargain and perfect for this project. I created my background with PanPastels, mixing the colours (you'll never guess which colours I used to make the purple shades ... Magenta and Turquoise! great fun as its like alchemy when the purples start to .emerge). I stamped here and there with an Indigo Blu harlequin stamp and versamark ink before brushing with some silver PanPastel.  I've used one of the gorgeous Pronty Stencils in the corners with Maimeri Iridescent Paste. The gorgeous stamps are from Lavinia Stamps, and I've added lots of stickles in various shades for some sparkle.

The Chipboard letters were coated with Maimeri Iridescent Paste and Pewter PanPastels, sprinkled with a little glitter and some blobs of rock candy crackle paint.

I just love love love this quote, my lovely friend Annie made me a beautiful note book with this sentiment and I just had to use it on this canvas. I've printed it out on the computer, cut it out and edged the words with glitter. The sentiment reads: Art is the only way to run away without leaving home and its by Twyla Tharp.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: things with wings
Crafting for all seasons: Sentiment as the focus
A Creative Romance: Lets get sentimental
Divas by Design: rubber stamps
Tuesday Throwdown: anything with wings
