Nature at PanPastel UK


Here is my DT sample for the PanPastel UK challenge this week.

The background was made by covering the tag with text paper, tearing some of it off when dry, then adhering scrumpled peach coloured tissue paper over the top.


I set about applying PanPastels in a variety of ways through masks, with and without embossing ink for it to stick to, stamping with the ink and applying the colour with a sofft tool and just shading areas using a sponge. 


I used pens and paints to highlight and add dimension.


I stamped the ink blots with archival ink


I splattered watered white acrylic paint and used a white pen to highlight areas.
I also shaded the ducks in with pans too.

This was alot of fun. I hope you will share your nature projects with us this week and who knows you might be the lucky recipient of a set of pans if you win, courtesy of 'Your Creativity Store'.

Have fun experimenting and playing this week.
