Pan Pastel Art

Happy Wednesday!  We've made it halfway through the week and it's going fast!  I've been quite the busy bee trying to get ready for my craft show on Saturday.  Only three days left if I count today and I still have so much to do, YIKES!  I've completed two new project but I can't show them to you :(  One is for PWP and the other is for Jenn's Blogaversary on Saturday so be sure to stop by for that.  I'll have some really cool blog candy to giveaway too.

Have you heard of Pan Pastels yet?!  They're a fairly new product that came out in the last three years.  The company is just a small mom & pop (love that) and work out of their garage.  They're similar to pastels in that they're chalky but they are pure pigment so you can get deep rich color in your art.  This was the last Donna Downey workshop I took on Saturday and by this time I was really popped,  so I didn't veer off to much from the example.

This piece is not complete but I'd thought I share it anyway ;D  The textured background was created with tissue paper to give the pan pastels something to grab onto.  I picked up a starter set so  I'm gonna keep practicing with them.  Have you tried any cool new products lately?  It's fun to play with different mediums and techniques isn't it?!

Well, I'm babysitting today so I better get off this computer.  Have a beautiful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
