Yvonne - I made this tag on acetate but now having difficulty taking the photo to show it properly!!
All details on my blog (with hopefully more useful photos).  Thanks so much for looking.

Claire C I've altered a picture frame from the pound shop by applying Maimeri White Gesso and then adding Silver and Antique Silver Maimeri Acrylic paints and brushing over some Black Coarse Pearl PanPastel Medium. I've added a hint of colour to the image with Pearlescent PanPastels and used Glassy Gel and Fine White Pearl Medium to give a frosty sparkle here and there. I've used a mix of water and Maimeri Gloss Gel Medium in a spritzer bottle to seal the PanPastels

You can see the sparkle a bit better in this pic

Terry I had lots of fun making a Christmas Tag, I have played with the background with the DD stencil Stars and Light Modelling Paste and loads of Pearlescent Pans, White PanPastel and the fabby snowflakes from DD with a pearl on top. Some sentiments and ribbon on top and my Christmas Tag is finished.

Premium Craft Brands


As always the DT have come up with some amazing projects to inspire you

Anjie -  I have created a background by drawing some rough squares with a fine liner pen and then colouring them and the background in using Pan Pastels. I have used the Pearlescent blue, green and yellow Pans. I have used the stamps from The Purpose of Art stamp set and coloured them in using the same colour Pan Pastels.

I have masked off my moon and hills as usual and used just two PanPastel colours to produce my background. Phthalo Blue and Titanium White
 I then stamped the trees and my sentiment and added a diecut tree to

Yvonne - I thought these were perfect colours for a Christmas Card, dare I admit that this is my first one this year??!!  All details on my blog and your all welcome.

Tracy -Hello PP Friends,  I would like to introduce you to " Frosty the snowman. "
 I had so much fun doodling and painting him onto a canvas . . . but . . . He was demanding, lol and wanted only the yummiest of crafty stash to be used from the new Pan Pastel Pearlescents and mediums along with a few other colours.
 Haven`t tried the new Pearlescent Pan Pastels and Mediums Yet? Oh my you are going to loooove them, seriously I am addicted , can you see al that sparkle . . . that was created by using the White Coarse Medium Pan Pastel . . . not sure how I lived without it! All the details are on my blog. xox

Terry: I made a FROSTY heartshaped box, would make a nice gift for someone. I started out with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste was used with the Roses Stencil from Dutch Doobadoo. The box was colored with Blue Pearlescent Pans, White, Silver Metallic and White COARSE Pearl Medium to give it a bit of a shimmer. On top of the box I placed some Softboard and a few hearts that I made with the kraft hearts template. Poored Mixed Medium inside and let it dry out, colored the hearts and topped it off with Crackle for an extra Frosty look.

Claire C I've altered a jar to create a tea light holder, sorry for the awful photo, the Pearl Pans are so sparkly its really difficult to get a decent pic

I began by creating some texture, applying some crumpled tissue paper with Maimeri Gloss Gel Medium. Once that was dry I added Blue pearl PanPastel to the top 2/3 of the jar and then Maimeri Platinum White Acrylic paint to the bottom, I applied the paint thickly with a spatula to create the effect of hills and then dusted on some of the coarse White Pearl Medium for some extra sparkle. Once that was all dry I added trees, little cottages and deer by stamping the images on tissue and applying them with more Glossy Gel Medium. The stamped images aren't showing up too well in the pic but they look really pretty in real life
