Good morning folks, its time for a new challenge at PanPastel UK and this time around our theme is 'Frame it', you don't have to make or alter a frame, you can frame something on your project instead. Our lucky winner will get a gorgeous mask and a PanPastel from our generous sponsors Premium Craft Brands so I do hope you're going to play along with us.
I've altered a plastic frame from the local pound shop. I began with a coat of Maimeri White Gesso and once that was dry I added some colour with my PanPastels (Ultramarine Blue Tint, Permanent Green Tint, Turquoise Tint and a little Yellow Green). I sealed with cheap hairspray and then dabbed some versamark here and there and applied silver PanPastel to highlight the frame. Its got a lovely shimmer in real life but it doesn't show up too well in the pics.
I've used a layer of Kroma crackle over PanPastels on the background, sealed with Maimeri Matt Gel and sprinkled with glamour dust. The focal image is a stamp called Rocking Robin from Indigo Blu. I've stamped it on a PanPastel background and gilded the image and then stamped again and layered the robin up on 3d foam pads.
Here's a better pic of the gorgeous Robin, he's been coloured with Graph'It markers
