Anything goes with PanPastels at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, Its challenge time at PanPastel UK and this time we want to see what you can create with your PanPastels!! Its an 'Anything goes' theme so there's lots of scope to play along to be in with a chance of winning some gorgeous goodies from our generous sponsors Premium Craft Brands. I've made a canvas using the gorgeous A4 Butterfly Stencil and lots of PanPastels. You can find links to the goodies i've used at the end of this post :-)

I began by applying Maimeri Light Modelling Paste through the butterfly stencil with a palette knife and then added more LMP through a harlequin stencil. Once that was dry I added colour with my Pearl PanPastels, adding a little Ultramarine Blue for some depth. I sanded the background a little to lift some of the colour from the stencilling and then I sealed the colours with my own spray fixer made by diluting Maimeri Matte Medium with water (about 3 parts water to 1 part matte medium) in a spritzer bottle. While the spray was wet I dusted on lots of the gorgeous Course White Pearl Medium for loads of extra sparkle and shimmer.

I coloured two pieces of stampbord with my Pans and stamped the sentiments with Black Memento Ink and popped them on the canvas to finish off.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Creative Moments: Anything goes/ anything but a card
Deep Ocean: Anything goes
Jo's Scrap Shack: flowers and butterflies
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Simply Create Too: no digis or stamped images
Stamps and Stencils: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
