Anything Goes at PanPastel UK

Hi Bloggers, it's  the first Sunday of 2013 so welcome to the first PanPastel challenge of the year and for your pleasure it is an 'anything goes' theme which always goes down well.


Those who follow me know that I have been experimenting more with the journalling style lately and I have also been using prints I made after Christmas with my new gelli plate. This is another of those and I have added PPs over the top to create more dimension using masks and also used PPs over some gesso layered through a mask. I used the white gesso to stamp the circles as well.


The stamp is from Crafty Individuals and called Party Puffin, isn't he just fabulous? I am making this into a cover for a new diary.


I hope you will join us again this year, there are lots of fabulous challenges in the pipe-line and there is a trial set of the pans for the winner supplied by our fabulous sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store.

We are welcoming two new members to the team Tracie from the UK and Terry from the Netherlands, I am sure you are gonna love their work so please pop over and say hello.

Hope your week 1 went well and that you are finding lots of crafty time.

Take care and have fun.
