Pan Patels and new Art Journal Page

Okay, I loooove Pan Pastels!!! There's this very nifty store here locally that I support as much as I can. Luckily for me alot of their supplies that I love, I can even find cheaper there than anywhere online!! Anywho, I go in there about every other week and buy 1-2 new colors. I will do this until I have them ALL!! If you haven't used any of these! WHY NOT??? This week one lucky person will win a black pan pastel! Just comment ans share on your blog with your friends!

Another great art journal page to come using pan pastels!
Okay, so onto a journal page A Year In The Life Of An Art Journal. HERE is the prompt.

THE PROMPT: Nature is a wondrous thing
ie: use pics of nature
THE STUFF: Don't quote me on it
ie: use a quote or quotes
THE TECHNIQUE: Gesso & stencils ie: try something different and use Gesso on your stencils for texture!

I used a very gritty Golden Course Pumice Gel. Love this stuff!!

After it dried, some gesso over the entire page.

I then used some great pan pastels. Blending some greens and yellows then some finishing touches. I didn't do too much "nature" stuff but I really feel as though the greens bring out a feeling of nature. I also reused my word of the year. Relax! Just to remind myself!

I'm also playing along wtih Berry71Bleu Challenges. you can check out their blog here:
