Scrap 365 meets Premium Craft Brand for blog hopping fun

Good morning my lovelies, its a very exciting day for me today as its not only the first day of my week of work (yippppeeeeeee) but us lucky girlies at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel DT are joining in with the talented team from Scrap365 Magazine Blog for a very colourful blog hop!


Premium Craft Brands have donated a fantastic set of Donna Downey Pan Pastels for the lucky winner of our Blog Hop prize draw :)

To take part in the blog hop you need to follow the trail of our blogs (below) to see all the amazing creations from everyone - we have some wonderful layouts and projects for you which will blow you away! Make sure you visit each blog and leave a comment so we know you've visited and you will go in the draw for that wonderful set of Donna Downey Pan Pastels which is worth £41.95!!! 
The random winner will be chosen from all the comments by Ali from Scrap365 and will be announced 20th March at 5pm on the Scrap365 blog and the Pan Pastel blog.


The challenge was to go crazy with colour and we began by picking out a colour palette from a fab site called Design Seeds, here's my pick and I began by matching up the colours with PanPastels


It was only when I actually began my project that I realised I'd picked a colour palette with red orange purple and lime green! Eeeeeeeeeeeek! Not only that but I'd never made a scrapbook layout before either, double eeeeeeeeeeeek! Anyway I can never resist a challenge so I got to work with my PanPastels and Maimeri mediums and had soooooooo much fun lol.

I printed the pics (of my gorgeous fur babies Benji and Barney) on printable canvas and cut them out with deckle edged scissors. I used Violet Tint and Paynes Grey PanPastel to create the background, stamping with a honeycomb stamp and white gesso. Next I added lots of texture with Maimeri Light Modelling paste using a Palette knife, stencil and more stamping (although it doesn't show up too well in the pic)


The flowers and leaves are all stamps from Chocolate Baroque, I coloured the cardstock with PanPastels and sealed with hairspray before stamping the images with white embossing powder and cutting them out. I curled the petals and shaped the leaves and then set to layering them all up. I added buttons and bakers twine from my stash and then came lots of pretty little laser cut butterflies from Dutch Doobadoo 


I stamped the words at the top left corner and then used some scraps of card to create the bunting with the word 'colour'. To finish off I used some Dutch Doobadoo card arrows painted with white gesso. Hope you like my very colourful layout lol!!
