Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes at We Love 2 Create

Good morning folks, how's your weekend going? It's very grey, damp and cold here so apart from dog walking duties, I'll be bunkered up in my craft room playing. My project today is for our 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' challenge over at We Love 2 Create. You don't have to use our products to play along and we've got some lovely crafty goodies lined up for our lucky winner thanks to the generous people at Premium Craft Brands!!

As I've had some time off work I decided to have a play in my art journal and followed the free lesson from Life Book 2016 'Happy Traveller' from Tam Laporte at Willowing Art. I really enjoyed it, such fun and so relaxing. I'd love to do this years Life Book but with work being so busy I don't think I'd have time. Hopefully things will be better next year and I'll have more time to play. Anyway I won't go into all the details as I just kind of followed Tam's lesson, using lots of different products including of course my beloved PanPastels. I can't add links to the colours I used as I can't remember my log in details to the thumblinky lol so here's a list: Skin: Burnt Sienna Shade, Orange Tint, Burnt Sienna Tint, Permanent Red Tint. Hair: Black Coarse Pearl Medium, White Coarse PEarl Medium, Magenta Extra Dark, Magenta Shade.

I also used Pewter, Violet, Phthalo Blue and Black fine pearl Medium for the background with some stencilling using a Dutch Doobadoo stars stencil.

I also used brushos, acrylic paints and lyra pencils.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

That's Crafty: Anything goes
