A fun new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel challenge!

Good morning folks, well its perfect crafting weather again this weekend so I thought I'd try and add a bitof sunshine with my DT project for Premium Craft Brands PanPastel Challenge where our theme is 'Anything Goes', as always the DT had a wee extra challenge and this week it was to use something other than paper and card. Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and check out my teamies gorgeous projects. Of course there is a fab prize up for grabs for our lucky winner courtesy of our lovely sponsor Berni from Your Creativity Store!

I've used a canvas and some wooden letters for my project. I added lots of texture to the canvas with Maimeri gesso and light modelling paste and stencils from Premium Art Brands, I love that dotty stencil! Next came my PanPastels in ultramarine blue tint and diarylide yellow tint. The gorgeous flower stamps were a freebie for subscribing to craft stamper, they are such fun stamps but not my usual style at all. I had a wee look at the PaperArtsy blog for some inspiration and got cracking lol, I kind of knew I wanted to use a bit of a rainbow theme so I took inspiration from all the texture that this weeks guest designer Julie Ann has used on her projects, they are stunning!.
 I stamped the JOFY flowers on tissue and coloured with Graph'It markers, I used Maimeri Matte Gel to apply the flowers to the canvas. 
I love this JOFY house stamp, it was a Secret Santa pressie at Christmas and I love it so much I had to use it lots of times lol. I decided to make a rainbow of little houses and added colour with PanPastels and Graph'It markers.

The letters got a coat of Maimeri Gesso and then a rainbow of PanPastels and a wee bit of stamping. I had a bit of a job attaching the letters but my hot glue gun came to the rescue.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Incy Wincy: add texture
Inky Chicks: Anything goes
One Crazy Stamper: anything goes
PaperArtsy : january challenge
Sparkles Forum: show us your new stash
Southern Girls: its all new

  15. I commented on your blog earlier this week, so I hope you don't mind me being a "double-commenter," but how could I not be WOWed by this creation?? The texture you added blew my mind and the popping bright colors are so visually stunning. It is such an interesting combination of elements, too, and you clearly are one creative gal to see this pull together in your mind! I love how you repeated the house stamp and made it fresh and inspiring by altering its colors. Genius, genius, and I am so thankful that you shared your major skills with us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
