Good morning my lovelies, I hope you're having a good weekend so far. We have a new challenge at PanPastel UK starting today and this time around our theme is 'Alter it' . Our lucky winner will receive a gorgeous mask and a PanPastel too so I hope you're going to play along.
For my DT project I've altered the cover of a 'Next' directory to make an art journal cover. I must have been psychic when I decided to make this last weekend as when I got home from work on Monday Barney (my mischievous lab) had chewed the cover off my dylusions art journal. Interestingly he'd ripped out the pages that I'd been working on and left the blank pages intact, I guess he doesn't think much of my art journalling lol.
Anyway after a coat of Maimeri White Gesso I added scraps of paper, die cuts, lace trim and Ranger Tissue Wrap with Maimeri Matte Gel medium. Once that was dry I applied another coat of gesso and then got to work with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and lots of Dutch Doobadoo stencils (you can find links to the products I've used at the end of this post) I added some colour with Pearlescent PanPastels in Green and Blue and for a little extra sparkle I applied some White Coarse Pearl PanPastel (love love love this stuff its so shimmery and sparkly but very difficult to capture the effect in a photo)
I've used stamps from Indigo Blu, stamped on tissue paper with memento inks. I also added some ribbon, lace, bead trim, pearls, a metal filigree corner to finish off.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
