Scrap 365 and Pan Pastels Awash with colour Blog Hop . . .

 Hello sweet friends, it`s an exciting day here as the Pan Pastel team join up with talented ladies over at
Scrap 365 
for
Back to Basics Blog Hop
Awash with Colour
Premium Craft Brands have donated a fantastic set of Donna Downey Pan Pastels for the lucky winner of our Blog Hop prize draw, woohoo!
So Awash with Colour, hmmmmm . . .
The Scrap365 team asked me to choose a specific colour palette and to use it for inspiration.
 I hopped on over to Design Seeds and made my choice . . .
 ... so many to choose from, but I did manage to whittle it down to this sumptuous one called
 Silk Brights 
I knew I had Pan Pastels that I could use and mix with others to get the colours I needed.
 These equate to { from left to right }
Turqouise Extra Dark / White Acrylic Paint
Magenta Shade Pan Pastel
Orange/ Red and Titanium white Pan Pastel
Light Gold Metallic / Yellow Ochre Pan Pastel
Light Gold / White Acrylic Paint
My next port of Inspiration was
Pinterest
and my love for old doors, strange maybe but true,lol
and a quote
 " Follow your Bliss and the Universe will open doors "
It really touched that creative side in me, I am trying to follow my bliss of creativity and in the last few years I feel that I am achieving to not only push myself but that doors are opening onto exciting journeys!
 I love nothing more than heading out to my shed and getting messy with
Pan Pastels,
Mediums & Gels,
 Stencil masks
and
stamps . . .
my little slice of heaven on earth!
  
Now it`s time to hop on over to the talented . . .
