Pan Pastels on the NILE!


What a great time I am having working with the Pan Pastels from our Partner company this month!

I love working with the Pan Pastels so much I picked up the set of Donna Downey Set of Pan Pastels pictured.  


Background is created on white card stock using Pan Pastels: Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre and Orange! Ink the edge of the white cardstock with Delicata Golden Glitz Ink.

 
Adhere Nefertiti, from MailBox Muse Kit on the Nile collage sheet, to thin chipboard and fussy cut.

From the Muse on the Nile Stamps set, stamp the Pyramids and the words: Pyramids and Sphynx, with brown ink. Adhere Nefertiti to panel with foam dots.
 
Mold Sphynx using Creative PaperClay, dry, adhere with Tacky Glue.  Mount panel on card base!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
