Borrowed some Pan Pastel today
 Both of these are on water color paper
One is Pan the other chalk
I chose as close to the same color as possible I find the Pan blends easy but is of less strength in the hue
I see such little difference in the coloring and blending 
 but Pan takes up more storage space
However watching videos there are things you can do with Pan that you maybe can't with chalk
Both are fun
Both doggie and I are doomed to die any minute 
For 25 years I have been blowing the caulk dust off my cardstock 
Now I see in the video that is very dangerous to your health and especially to dogs 
There is a special little vacuum I should buy and be using 

Here are the examples of the two medium Pam Pastel on left  Chalk on right 

These are the two products  I used  Pan Pastel on top

Chalk below
I use  the alligator clip with tiny cotton balls for both

Pan visa Chalk This time I used make up sponges and the cloud maker . The pan is definitely creamy and does not scrub off the tool I do see a difference in strength of color but unless they are side by would never know . If I didn't do them myself I couldn't tell which was which Can you?

One more and I won't bug you again unless I come up with something  marvelous 
This one is Pan Pastel and the purpose was to see how well you could stamp on ikt 
It looks great but wouldn't happen without the MISTI  it took three layers before it started to look good

I received a lovely package from my very best British card friend
These delightful fairies are on Glimmering mist background 
with a grass die in front

how clever and thoughtful of her to include this

Thank you Ali  Love them all

LCC You're the Man



Without the farmer we do not eat 

Saturday, June 1, 2019


I was gifted this die in a package but don't have the matching stamp 

My first  instinct was to use it as a stencil 
I used a sponge and distress ink 
and that worked quite well don't you think ?
