Pan Pastels & Premium Craft Brand & Me

Tile 2


I LOVE PLAYING with color….and experimenting, and layering, and pushing it to the very limits! If you know my artwork and my style you know I tend to be curious and just because something doesn’t say that I can’t do it… doesn't mean that I am not doing try it! And if worse comes to worse….I am married to a fire man so if it goes up in flames….  And that is exactly why I love layering different wonderful products from Ranger Ink, Ice Resin, Prima Marketing, Clear Snap, i love to create, Faber Castell, and so many other wonderful manufactures that have cool products that make my {HEART} and imagination soar! Because I can and I always get really neat results!  That is why, when last week I was given the opportunity to be a Premium Craft Brands Educator on the PanPastel UK Blog I was delighted because like the companies that I am already an Endorsed Educator with, Ranger Ink and  Helmar, I truly admire the companies, and the products. I love working with them, creating new things and sharing what I am creating with other people.

I have taught classes, written and created many projects with Pan Pastels, but I really am thrilled to be working with Premium Craft Brands on this level and I sure hope that you check out there wonderful site and blogs.You can find their site HERE. Lots of COLOURFUL sweetness!

Why Not!?

Use something like a watermark resist or Emboss IT pen from Ranger Ink and layer it down with a decoupage medium like a Mod Podge or Helmar’s Decoupage and Craft Paste. The colours shine through and are SO vibrant!

Vintage papers and pattern pieces look very cool when layered in. This is really fun and easy to do! So COME and PLAY!!!!! Give it a try! *grin*

  2. I've not tried Pan Pastels before, but hear they are a lot of fun to play with! Hopefully one day I will get to try them out too, looks like you had a lot of fun experimenting with them!

  3. I don't yet have any Pan PAstels. You do make them look fun!
