Meanwhile I managed to finish one of the Rose Tyler fingerless mitts. I like the way it turned out. Now I need to make the other one.
I am still doing exercises in the Pan Pastel classes I am taking. This was made with a stencil and modeling paste.
This one is from the class on Poppies. These have an abstract look to them. I have always liked poppies so I am enjoying learning how to draw and paint them.
Pam Carriker is painting a face with PanPastels in this video.
She does a really nice job. She uses a stencil to draw the basic face and then paint with PanPastels. It looks so easy when she does it.
These two pages are from the altered book journal I have been using for some time. The book is all about whaling. I had removed some pages because the book is getting to big. I use Tim Holtz tissue paper for the background and then took one of the pages I had removed and used them on this page. This is a letter written by Laura to her husband who is a whaler, I added their pictures for emphasis.
On the facing page I added tags and ribbon and a journal space. I will add some words about the couple on the tag. I love this tissue paper. Its so see through that it lets the color from the page come through. You can also color on top of it. I found it at scrapbook.com.
