Have you seen the amazing "paintings" that people do with Pan Pastels? They're fabulous. But you won't see one in this post--waaaaaayyyyy beyond me! However, I still REALLY like these pastels, and am having a great time incorporating them into my creations.
One of the things I tend to "do" is halo, or highlight, around people or words, sometimes with gold paint, but most commonly with white crayon. However, I'm seriously considering trading in the white crayon permanently . . .
Let me show you some before and after photos. Here is an atc I did a while back, the background is a collage of papers from a Vintage Text Pages Pack, paint, etc. Around the stitched heart is a subtle halo/highlight of white crayon.
Here is the same atc, but with white Pan Pastel for the halo/highlight. I like this one better!
