For the Love of Coffee

Hi Everyone, Danie here with you today, back sharing another one of my plays with Pan Pastels.


I mentioned in my last post that I had been sick, during which time I was avoiding drinking coffee as it was making me cough more. Now I am a little better and back enjoying my coffee I decided to dedicate a page in my art journal to my love of this beautiful beverage.

 My starting inspiration for my background was my favorite coffee cup.  You can see my oversized coffee mug in the video I made showing the creation of this page.

   

For this page I have used the Exploring Mixed Media No 1 Set of Pan Pastels and the color Violet. Stamps from Alice's Mad Tea Party Kit from Mailbox Muse, Altered Pages Art Stamps, Collage Image from Good Morning Collage Sheet. Versafine Black Ink, Memento Markers.

You can also see on the other page I have been coloring some book pages with Violet Pan Pastels and using this paper to die cut some flowers.  Just another way you can use them.



Here's a video of my play to if you want to take a look at the process.
