PanPastels and Stencils!

The Altered Pages Design Team is really excited to be working with PanPastels during September. We hope you enjoy  seeing what we create and are inspired to work with them yourselves.  PanPastels will be available AlteredPages.com soon!


"Ultra Soft Artists’ Painting Pastels. For Painting, Drawing & Mixed Media! A revolutionary new way to use color! PanPastel Colors are professional artists’ quality soft pastel colors packed in a unique pan format (cake-like). The special qualities of PanPastel Colors mean that artists can blend and apply dry color like fluid paint for the first time."
Today I would like to share using PanPastels with stencils to create awesome backgrounds.

To start I used my VersaMark Dazzle pad with a sponge and carefully applied the VersaMark on my paper through the stencil. 
Then with one of a PanPastel soft sponge I gently applied the PanPastel in a circular motion. 

Here you can see three different stencil patterns
  
I created a card using one of the pattern papers I created.   The "H" is from the "H" is for Halloween collage sheetprinted on Craft Attitude™ printable film. 
The Halloween image is from the Halloween ATCs collage sheet (layered on black cardstock).  


The panel was layered on Black Cardstock and then on the card. A green ribbon is the finishing touch. 

Visit the blog during September and see what the Altered Pages Design Team has in store for inspiration!!!  Be sure to comment each day on the blog for a chance to win a set of PanPastels.  A random drawing will take place at the end of the month, for each comment your name gets entered again!  More comments, more chances of winning!
