Pan pastelling

Many months ago I bought a set of Pan Pastels, with the intention of using them when I got home! mmmm, well they have languished in the bag for quite a while, so when Nina of It's Crafting Time near Cambridge, ( where I am doing a workshop on Saturday) asked me to find time to do a small piece with them, I gaily said ,( not knowing if they would!) oh they will work beautifully on Gesso! And yes they do!! I do think there is a knack to using them, which I have yet to discover, but I thought I would show you my first attempt at using them.
Here is an altered book page I did very quickly with a Dylusions Stencil, some Studio Gesso, and a few colours of Pan Pastels.
I am hooked!

If you fancy a day with me altering books, there are still a couple of places left for Saturday's class. Just call Nina on 01763 262417
Have a creative day

Wow, I love your journal pages and how brave of you! I have a set of PP's which have never seen the light of day but I am definitely going to give this a go, thanks to you Jennie. Thanks for the inspiration, wish I lived closer... said...

That looks gorgeous. I only have three PP but I love them. Haven't tried them over gesso yet, so that's now on my to-do list.
