I have a fun little canvas to share with you today, made by mixing PanPastels with gesso. More details can be found on my blog but I mixed Violet and Magenta Shade with gesso to coat the chipboard sunglasses I stamped over the top with Versa Mark ink and applied a second coat of Violet and Magenta Shade over the top. The background was coloured in the same way except the second coat was applied through a stencil.







 I've made another tag for my tag journal and used some of my favourite PanPastel Colours, I just adore Magenta Extra Dark . You can find all the details on my blog







Lou: I've created a notebook using gesso, my pan pastels (including mediums & metallics), stamps and a few die cuts. More details and photos are on my blog.

Gemma 

I am excited to say this is my first inspiration post for We Love to Create. and my first real use of PanPastels. I am loving both my new teamies and the product. I applied Magenta Shade and Blue through a stencil making sure to blend them into each other. Then I stamped the flowers and text onto book pages and coloured them in using Titanium White, Violet and Magenta Shade Pan Pastels. You can find out more on my blog and I am looking forward to seeing everyone's entries for this challenge







I've made a journal page using lots of the lovely metallic Pans for my project this time. You can find all the details on my blog








Terry: I was having fun making a notebook...this time I worked on the background with first Gesso and a bit darker colours.....a bit of blue, reddish, green, blues and white....When all the colours dried up I played with a flower stencil and used Crackle. A few dots of blue and red and a couple of sentiments and my notebook was ready. One last layer of Matte Gel Medium and my inspiration notebook for you guys is done. Wanna see more pictures? than I suggest you click on my name and check out my blog....
