Stamping with Pan Pastels {with technique video}

Our 2nd post today is brought to you by Amy Lassiter and she's stamping with a paste made from her PanPastels -- CHECK IT OUT!

Hello stampy friends! It's Amy here today,to share a layout I created using some fun techniques with Pan Pastels AND Viva Las VegaStamps! It was so fun to play with a new medium, and to create something a little bit out of my box in style. :)

I used the Pan Pastels both wet and dry. I had fun finding a few techniques, that were easy and gave a big impact at the same time. The vibrant colors were great to blend and layer, and I used them all over the page, to give the paint splash look, as well as to stamp with!

For the wider sections of the page that are covered in color, I used the sponge wand, and gently blended colors from the inside out. Between each layer I added, I sprayed the page with Fixative to keep the pastels from flaking off. As you can see in my video below, even after using the pastels wet(which makes for a great texture relief), the fixative keeps it all in place. I could even stamp with black and blue ink over the top,as well as draw and blend (using water) with Aquarelle without smudging the pastels.

Have a look at the quick video I created to show the stamping technique I used with the Pan Pastels:
 If you'd like to see how I created a chalky type texture "paint splatter....." head over HERE to watch that video.
Thanks so much for having a look today....and give Pan Pastels a try, you may find a new medium you love (like I did!)
