A New Love..and Some Beginner's Magic..

Mama is in LOVE!!!


These PanPastels may be old news to some of you, but I have just found them and I am in LOVE!! Have you all tried these ????Oh, my Goodness! I am in love! I played around, and played around, and there is just so much you can do with these.
I did this background by applying color directly on a non-gessoed page. I just smeared it on with their large sized Sofft tool. I used 2 colors (pink and orange) and applied gesso over the top...what a dream!!!
Same with this page, I didn't add collage stuff yet.

Same here...just green and yellow...very, very sorry for the poor scans...but these pastels are so creamy and smooth and go on like butter! Good Golly Miss Molly!

I had a workshop on yesterday morning at Jerry's....Beautiful Beginnings...and beautiful it was! I just love watching people do something, and they are having such a great time with it, that they lose track of time...well, that is what happened here...it was honestly such a great time! Magic was made all over the place!



As always, I'm totally inspired by supplies!!!!
Anywho, I found this fortune that says Keep true to the dreams of your youth, and that struck a cord with me, so here is my completed page.

Until next time,
Ophelia

I threw these in my DickBlick cart months ago but ended up taking them out. I'm regretting that now. I just didn't know how often I would use them when I don't even use the chalks I have. How do they compare? Love your pages.

Susie said...

Hey Ophelia
totally agree with you Pan Pastels ROCK. They add so much and are so easy to use. Gotta love 'em. Looks like you had a grand day of play.

Mary said...

Hi Ophelia, I just read your interview at Jennifer's. I loved reading it and getting to know a little more about you.

Have a wonderful day!!
