Photo Inspiration at PanPastel UK

I found yet another new way (to me) to use PanPastels and thought I would make this into a tutorial soon as I can see it could be rather popular, that is if you haven't found this one out for yourself already.

It is a version of the Tim Holtz enamelled stamping technique.


This is a Darkroom Door background stamp with magenta and yellow pans to get the shade I wanted for this  photo inspiration challenge.


I covered the dress with pastels then embossed using a script stamp and glitter EP.




To enter all you have to do is take something from it that inspired you from the photo on the PP challenge blog post for today, I am using that fabulous orange colour and the dark greens. If you enter you could be in with a chance of winning a trial set of pans.

To catch up - it became a very busy end of the week when the school where I am governor got the Ofsted call. Consequently everyone galvanised into action ensuring everything was ready for them. It seemed to go positively so I am awaiting the final judgement.

I hope you'll pop back later when I will be showing you another vintage piece using the new Time Traveller stamps from Mr TH himself.

See you soon.

This is beautiful, Brenda. I love your background. I am just trying to decide whether to give pan pastels a go!!
Hope the Ofsted report is kind, they put the fear of God into schools when they visit don't they.

Hi Brenda. This has all come together beautifully! I love the pop of red on his tie, and the stamps are gorgous. I'm having a go at the ruination course too, with holidays coming up I'm looking forward to a proper play!

Gorgeous Brenda. The colours you've used put me in mind of a peacock (the blue/green I think!) Hope all went well with Ofsted (don't they put you through the wringer!!) Hugs, Jenny x
