Design Team Project #3 by Astrid

Hello everyone and welcome to the last post featuring the wonderful Panpastels.

This time I will show you how just 5 colours: Hansa Yellow, Permanent Red Shade, Phtalo Blue Shade, Burnt Sienna Shade and Titanium White can be used to create a whole rainbow of colours in a painterly sort of background.

I started with a piece of water colour paper and gave it a very light dusting of yellow. I then punched out a circle from a post it note, stuck it on to the water colour paper to save out the sun and used the various pastels to create a landscape. My next step was to add further details with some of my Prisma Color pencils I also used a Tim Holtz stamp stamped in Archival Black for the birds. Finally some more of the pastels to blend it all together.

Well I hope you have enjoyed all of the projects using the Panpastels the DT members have shown you this month and don't forget there is still a chance to win a set of three of the pastels by leaving a comment HERE.
