which has been coloured with paint and lots of glimmer mist sprays.
A busy week as I also did a workshop with Donna Downey and came home with two completed projects. Still have to add a strip of black and white photos to the top canvas. A fun bright canvas using gelatos, inks, tags, washi tape and pan pastels. The final project was the pan pastel canvas.
Happy how this finally turned out and I like the effect. But not quite sold on the pan pastels themselves. I am very heavy handed so I ruined sponges, got pastels everywhere and at one point was ready to throw the insipid canvas out the window. Donna kept me persevering with my technique building layers of colour and the canvas and I came home together and the pan pastels stayed in the shop!
I am interested to hear what others think of pan pastels as I haven't bought any as our relationship is still not cordial....
Off to visit the woyww desks courtesy of the lovely Julia.

A quick post of the 3 boxes drying after the spray of glimmer mist. I am still making things for the school fete and keeping it all pretty/ simple. Just using washi tape, bling, flowers and mist. Will have to visit woyww desks over the coming nights as I am out and about. Even less time now that I have to do a second post grumble...grumble.

I was going to say another quick layout and then realised that it has actually taken 18 years to get it done. Better late then never. Earlier this year I did a workshop with Finnabair and I really enjoyed her style and mix of grunge and pretty. Looking at it now I think it would of been better with a sepia toned photo but really when it takes this long to do the job I won't stress.
