Now back to our current challenge and  our DT have got lots of 'Pink' inspiration for you:

Hello to you all I am sharing my inspiration piece for PanPastel. I started by dusting over the Permanent Red Tint followed by some Permanent Red and  Titanium white at the top of my picture, I then blended some Magenta over the bottom half . Full details from my blog.

Yvonne - PanPastels are so versatile.  Colour paper clay, paint, emboss.  All details of how I made this card are on my blog.

Anjie This started out life as a Kraft board bird house. To start with I gave it a base coat of white Gesso. I then mixed the Magenta Pan Pastel with the Gesso and gave it another coat. I then used the same Pan Pastel through the Spirograph mask to create the pattern. I then painted over it with a coat of Glassy Gesso and painted and added a wooden butterfly.

Terry  I had fun with a canvas, worked on the background with the Spiderweb Dutch Doobadoo Stencil, lots of Light Modelling Paste and I mixed the Pinkish Panpastel with water and sprayed it onto the canvas untill I got the right shade of pink. Played with butterflies and colored them with Pink Pans and on top Iridescent Paste. I did the same with the sentiments and topped it with Iridescent Paste.

 The products I have played with are:

Claire C I've altered a little bird house too and loads of fun playing with my PanPastels and Maimeri Mediums, you can find all the details on my blog

Our DT have been busy bees creating some gorgeous pink projects to inspire you:

I don't have pale pink PanPastel so just thought I would tell you that they mix fabulously I just scraped a little Magenta and white and mixed,just use as normal . More details from my blog.

Claire C I'm loving altering MDF hearts and went pink pink pink with this one lol. I began with a coat of Maimeri White Gesso and once that was dry added some colour with Magenta and Magenta Tint PanPastels. I added a little deeper pink through the gorgeous Peacock stencil - perfect for swirls around the edges of your project. I added some texture with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste using a piping bag and dusted with Magenta Tint PanPastel and glamour dust . The image was coloured with PanPastels and detail added with Graph'It markers

Yvonne - Lovely as a Tree, Santa and Pink?

Tracy - Sharing another 8x8 canvas with you today that is Pink, pink, pink! I had fun using Maimeri Mediums, Stamps, White Acrylic Paint and Pan Pastels in Magenta, Magenta Extra Dark Shade, Titanium White and Permanent Red. More details are on my blog if you would like to stop on by HERE

Terry, I had more fun with a small canvas and played with lots of Pink Pastels on the background, used a Dutch Doobadoo Stencil to create some texture and worked on it with Light Modelling Paste, placed some lace and at the bottom lots of pearls, a rose and some flowers. In the middle I put a butterfly and worked on it with PanPastel, crackle and topped it with Iridescent paste. Last but not least a sentiment
