Premium Crafts Brand WK 46 Pan Pastel Challenge - Colour Embellishments

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all having a crafty weekend!
It`s time for a new challenge over at
and the theme this week for the design team is . . .
Coloured Embellishments
but as ever, your challenge is 
Anything Goes
we do loooove to see what you all create!
I wanted to try a new technique for this one using a mixture of  . . . 
Metallic Pan Pastels in Light Gold, Rich Gold, Pewter, Silver
Just click on the links above to shop.
I started with a quick coat of Maimeri Gesso all over the canvas, followed by light Modeling paste through the Doily stencil using a palette knife to apply it.
I wanted more texture and applied more Light Modelling Paste with a palette knife around the canvas.
Time to add my picture, that`s me on the left, lol . . .
I used Maimeri Matt Gel Medium to fix the picture and some of the lighter embellishments to the canvas and my hot glue gun for the heavier ones.
Next time to apply the Maimeri Gesso, I protected the picture with a scrap of paper and used 3 coats of Gesso in the end . . . some of the flowers were really vibrant and I needed to mute them down to work.
Once dry I applied Yellow Ochre Pan Pastel with a Sofft Sponge and used a fixative spray to hold the colour.
To finish I cracked open the Metallic Pan Pastels and the Sofft Knife with the Flat Cover to add a touch of pizzaz to the embellishments.
 I was way out my comfort zone wih this project but boy oh boy did I have fun playing around with the stencil and embellishments!
Be sure and stop by the
Premium Craft Brand Challenge blog and check out what the rest of the girls created and remember your challenge is . . .
Anything Goes woohooooo!!
Till next time happy Crafting
