Hello, its time for a new theme over at the PanPastel Challenge Blog the theme this week is The Great Outdoors and the prize is a brilliant taster pack of PanPastels and sofft tools (colours may vary) supplied by our sponsor Your Creativity Store. Your entries can be made using any medium so everyone can join in and the design team have made some lovely creations as inspiration, so please come and join in with the PanPastel Challenge as we love to see your wonderful makes.
For this weeks challenge I decided not to make a card but instead to combine my love of PanPastels with my love of Pyrography, so here is what I made.
To make this project, I began with a plain wooden box bought from a local discount store, I drew on my design and then removed the hinges and clasp.
I then took my pyrography tool and burnt in the design.
Next I took my PanPastels and my sofft tools and added the colour to my design, starting with the sun and the lighter colours of PanPastel such as white yellow and orange working my way around the design on all of the sides to ensure that the layers of colour were consistant on all sides.Then when I was happy with the lighter colours I went on to add the PanPastels in shades of purple, red and pink and then finally I went back around the sky blending the colours together using more of the yellow PanPastel. When the sky was finished I sprayed it with fixer and then went on to the green and brown shades of PanPastel to colour the hills and the bear one again spraying with fixer when complete.
Finally I varnished the box using a clear varnish and then when the varnish was dry I put the hinges and clasp back in to place.
Thank you for reading this post, I do hope you will pop over to the PanPastel Challenge Blog and join us and as always I love to hear any comments that you have.
