Christmas has come early?!

A brilliant idea by Sandra that if we all make one Christmas card a month then we'll be well ahead of the game by the time the big day arrives :)

Here is my first of 2012 - I thought I could do with a bit of serenity

2 of anything


I saw the challenge to make "2 of anything" on the PanPastels site - so I thought I'd do 2 dancing mermaids all coloured in pastels :)

Pan Pastels


Finally got my craft room back - I think that that is all the upstairs work done on the house now, so no more using it for storage!!

Eileen has been raving about Pan Pastels and having seen the most beautiful results, I thought I'd have a go myself as the colours were just stunning - right up my street - so here they are, my first attempts, I am fascinated at how you can mix the colours and get such subtle shading from one into another ...

You rub them on like chalks and although it has not come out on the pics, you can mix ordinary shimmer chalks with them as well to turn them from a matt to a subtle sheen.

I hope everyone is well, and I can highly recommend giving these a go.
