PanPastel art journal pages

These are my PanPastel (PP) journal pages in the style of Donna Downey. I found Donna's blog whilst searching for anything on PPs and am in awe of her fresh creative style with techniques I just wanted to try out.


I stamped with PPs and water using a hero arts set called dotted flowers. Having stamped, edged in some stalks with the soft knife and blended the blue around them I then sprayed with acrylic sealer/finisher as I don't have a fixative. Using cotton buds I then coloured in the flowers, sprayed with the sealer again, added a quote and dripped paint down the page. Different eh?



I am adding this to -
PanPastel challenge - Anything goes. My third entry in a week!
Just For Fun - Anything but a card,
Crafts 4 Eternity - Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Take care as always and thanks for stopping by today.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Wow, Brenda, that's a fantastic page, think I'll give this technique a try, too. ... But I've to buy some fixative first.

Your pages look just gorgeous Brenda and the effect of the stamping with the pastels is amazing. It doesn't look stamped at all.
Beautiful colours too.
