Believe you can....

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Tina Walker here today with an Art Journal page, using some of my favorite UWS products and PanPastels.  UWS products are so versatile and can be used on a multitude of projects.  Combined with PanPastels, the possibilities are endless.

To begin 'building' my page, I drew several 'rays' extending from the bottom of my page. 

On alternating rays, I applied Translucent Embossing Paste with the "Hexagon Confetti Stencil", making sure the embossing paste did not migrate to the bordering ray.

Once the paste was dry, I applied several shades of PanPastels to the rays and blended.  I love how the embossing paste resisted the PanPastel and how each shade of PanPastel blended with the other(s).

On each opposite ray, I adhered a piece of patterned paper and colored with another PanPastel color.

Special tip:  I 'set' my PanPastels with a few spritzes of water.  You can also use a fixative or hairspray to set the pastels so they do not rub off.

I then doodled on each of these PanPastel paper rays with Acrylic Paint markers and doodling pens.

Looks great, doesn't it?

To finish off my Art Journal page, I doodled a large sentiment on a ray 'painted' with PanPastels, then added a smaller sentiment, using "Alpha One" chipboard. 

What a fantastic impact, with nominal work.  I simply love using UmWowStudio stencils with PanPastels.  They are a match made in heaven!

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!
