Playing with Pan Pastels

 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

Products used
Pan Pastels - Black, greys thru to white.
TCW mask
Distress Inks - Pumice Stone and Black Soot
Stamp - A T!m one
Copic marker
Flowers from forever ago
AND I used my Slice machine to cut the bats!!

Thanks for stopping by......happy creating!

Bo Bunny Country Gardens

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!

Another Layout

Don't fall off your seats now!
Yes, I have created another 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

Cheers Terri
