Good morning folks, it's time for our new challenge over at We Love 2 Create and as usual our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' so there's loads of scope to play along and be in with a chance of winning some gorgeous crafty goodies from Premium Craft Brands!
For my DT project I've made a wall hanging using PanPastels and stamps from Indigo Blu. I love to use PanPastels to colour as they make blending so easy. I've used cream Pastelmat for this project as I knew I wanted to use lots of layers of colour so I needed a base with plenty of tooth to hold the Pans. I began by stamping the images and then set to colouring with my Pans (links to the colours can be found at the end of this post). There's no need to be too precious as most of the colours are erasable so if you go outside the lines you can remove any mistakes. Once I'd coloured the images I added a little more depth and some shadows with Lyra pencil crayons and I used a black fineliner pen to add detail to the centre of the poppies. I also added a little stencilling to the background and a stamped sentiment.
I stamped a couple of butterflies with versamark and coloured them using the same shades, added a little glitter and popped them up with silicone glue. I've layered the finished artwork on a piece of mountboard that I'd 'crackled' with black and red acrylic paint and pva glue.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Creative Corner: encouragement
Simply Papercraft: anything goes
Southern Girls: pop it up
Sweet Stampin: red for remembrance
Word Art Wednesdays: Anything goes
Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
