One for the boys inspiration at PanPastel UK

Good morning my lovelies, how is your weekend going? Its been tipping it down with rain all weekend so I've had a nice lazy weekend so far with plenty of messy fun in my craft room. Today's project is my inspiration project for our 'One for the boys' challenge at PanPastel UK You've still got a week to enter to be in with a chance of winning some gorgeous crafty goodies from Premium Craft Brands You don't have to use PanPastels to enter but of course we love it when you do

I've made a canvas, I began with a thick layer of Maimeri Light Modelling Paste, adding lots of texture with stencils, a texture tool and my fingers lol to create a kind of rough bark effect. Once it was dry I added colour with PanPastels - Raw umber plus shade, Burnt Sienna plus Shade and gave it all a coat of Maimeri glossy gel medium

The stamps are all from Artistic Outpost (Huck Finn set), stamped on kraft card with Potting Soil Archival Ink I tore the edges and distressed with PanPastel in Raw Umber I've layered the images up over some burlap, corrugated card,die cut cogs (painted with Maimeri metallic acrylics) I've also added a pen nib and some twine

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Crafts 4 Eternity: For the boys
Creative Corner: use an old stamp
(I love this stamp set but haven't used it for ages)
Creative moments: Monochromatic
Left of Centre: at the movies (The adventures of Huckleberry Finn)
Scrapbooker Phd: die cuts
Simon Says Stamp: Fathers day/masculine
Thats Crafty: use texture paste

Have a lovely Sunday, thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon
