Have been playing around over the last few days with some texture paste and Pan Pastel as I wanted to incorporate these two mediums on my next layout. Thought I shoud experiment first before stressing as I go direct to the layout!! Really love how this tag has turned out and now the fun of putting a layout together can start.

TCW brickwall template 6 x 6
Pan Pastel - Paynes grey, Neutral grey and Neutral grey tint
Finally got my hands on some Pan Pastels, not the colours I was after but I can see they will come in handy for shading and shadows. Still have alot to learn about this medium, might even do Donna Downey's online class to get more of an idea, but today I sat down and created this tag.
Used the pastels along with the Crafters Workshop mask to create the background
This range of papers is simply gorgeous and are a must have in everyones stash!!
Here is what I have created with it
Believe In Yourself
A layout that intially started out being about Ashleigh but as it progressed ended up being about me.....................go figure. The Collections Expression 'through this door' was the trigger for both cutting the door in the paper and exploring my fears in many aspects of my life particularly scrapbooking.
...........and a close up!
Bo Bunny Country Garden Papers
Weathered, Dot, Almanac, Gardens Vines, Garden Stripe and Cut Outs.
Don't fall off your seats now! Yes, I have created another layout.........so pleased my mojo is slowly finding it's way home. I was given the really cute Neapolitan range from American Crafts by Tracey to play with this time. Just perfect to create a layout of our sweet niece Makayla.
The pale pink Thickers seemed to blend in too much, so I grabbed out some Smooch, which I have had in my stash forever and blended the pink and pearl over the top. Really like how they have turned out.
Just a word of warning tho! The Smooch doesnt dry on the foam....pmsl!! Note to self experiment on some odd letters before going direct to layout - smacks head. But I was able to blot the letters which did remove alot of the sparkle but a least it did dry.
Thank for stopping by Hope you have a creative day
I seem to be the OA girl at The Flourish! Not that I mind because I love OA papers and embellishments..........most of the time. This first layout is using Farmhouse papers, I'm really fond of this range - it's so pretty. I have made many cards and even covered my diary in the scraps
Now the Sasparilla range is a whole different ball game not my cup of tea at all It just seems to be a mixed matched lot of papers, but it suited some photos taken in Tassie on our trail ride.
I used an embossing folder as a stamp for the effect on the title. I was after a woodgrain effect and I think I have captured the look of sassafrass well.
I have the Neapolitan range from American Crafts sitting on my table so I had better get a wiggle on with creating. But I'm having way too much fun doing my Chemistry homework!!
