PanPastel Create a scene

This is the last in a set of three PanPastel UK challenges where I have kept the theme of pages for a book.

The scene came about whilst focusing on the idea that school's out and the summer holidays are upon us. With the beach and water integral to my pages last week I carried on with that idea and created this sea scene, both above and below the water line.

The mermaid, boat and fish are all downloaded vintage images and the background pieces are still from the larger piece I made and showed you three weeks ago.

I coloured the mermaid using PPs and added some white to the dots and added some bubbles from the fish.

This is the finished book from the last three weeks DT pieces for PanPastel UK. I love it and and will try to link pieces in the future in this way.

If you choose to join us this week we look forward to coming and see what you have created and you might be the lucky winner of a great PanPastel set from Your Creativity Store.

Have a wonderful Sunday wherever you are.

FSC - Summer Ice Cream Colours

Strawberry, Vanilla and Caramel

I have a little set for you on the cat walk today in my summer ice-cream colours - two cards and a note book.

The note book was made by stamping onto tissue paper which I then used to cover some chipboard pieces covered with distress stains. I added a few bits and and bobs and used the Bind-It-All to complete it.

The cards were made in a similar way, this time covering a piece of card with the stamped tissue paper, then blending DI round the edges. The bunting I made using DS and DI on canvas, the button card I downloaded and re-sized sewing a button onto it. Some shabby ribbon, tape measure, lace, gem brad and PC generated sentiment finish it off.

Hope you can come and join the Stampettes at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this week, do take a look at their amazing pieces for inspiration.

Materials used -
Stamps - Haberdashery by Tim Holtz
Distress inks - Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
