Animals at PanPastel UK

I really seem to be in experimental mode since the new year and have been playing with the PanPastels to create mixed-media backgrounds. This one includes PanPastels, glue stick, gesso, pens and inks.

1. Stencilled embossing ink through brick wall mask and blended reds and brown PPs over.
2. Rubbed top portion with Pritt stick and rubbed various colours of greens, blues and white over.
3. Heat dried top portion then scratched through the thicker areas where the glue is and rubbed small amounts of yellow, dark blue, red and mauve over.
4. Sprayed with colourless fixative.

5. Gave everything a coat of Maimeri acrylic gesso wash and heat dried.
6. Stencilled embossing ink through two mask and blended PPs over.
7. Sprayed with colourless fixative.
8. Used black and white pens to highlight shapes from the masking.

9. Stamped cats, branches and text in black archival ink. Used black pens to extend the branches and twigs and to give more depth to the silhouette cats.



Hope to see you over at the PanPastel challenge blog and if you enter you could be in with a chance of winning a trial set of pans from Your Creativity Store.

Have fun creating and learning new things.
