Snazzy DT Project Featuring PanPastels ....

Good morning everyone, Gillian here with the 1st of our May projects featuring PanPastels. If you haven't worked with PanPastels before here is a little introductory to them .... 

"PanPastels are a professional grade soft pastel colours packed into a unique pan format, so they can be mixed and applied like paint. All 80 Panpastel colours are made using a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binders and fillers, resulting in rich, ultra soft and low dust formulations".

To see how versatile and easy they are to use, click HERE and you can watch the following videos.

All 80 PanPastels Colours are divided into the following - 20 Pure Tones (which all end with the number 5), 20 Tints, 20 Shades, 20 Extra Dark Shade. PanPastels also have their own "Tools & Applicators" - click HERE to see the full range which are all available at Snazzy's. 

For my 1st project I started out by applying Yellow Ochre to the Large Creative Covers Art Part set, I then used Versamark using the following stamps from the Studio 490 range - It's More Flower Art, The Essence Of Art & Mechanical Art. 

This wooden flourish is from Kaisercraft, I applied Red Oxide Shade PanPastel then dipped it several times into UTEE, heating & reapplying inbetween layers.

I used Yellow Ochre & Turquoise Shade for the inside of the Journal, again using Versamark to stamp the background image from the "It's More Flower Art Set".

 I used Titanium White & Red Oxide Shade to colour this gent who is from the "Guys,Gals & Phones Art Part Set". The co-ordinating stamp is from "Call It Art"
On the back, again I have created multiple layers using the above PanPastel colours. The flourishes are from the "Corners & Flourishes Art Part Set"
