Pan Pastel UK Challenge . . . Embossing

 Good morning everyone, I sure hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!
It`s Sunday which means it`s time for a brand new challenge over at
and the theme is
so dig out your embossing folders or your trust trusty Heat Gun and come join in the fun to be in with the chance of winning a brilliant prize from our sponsors!
All the details can be found here.
  What fun I had stamping and heat embossing using the
 Santoro Mirabelle ` Adrift Clear stamp 
on a little chunk of wood.
 Painting has never been so much fun, I used the brand new Pearlescent Pans
{ they are gorrrgeous! }
along with a few Metallic Pans, Pan Pastels and never am I without a little Gesso in my projects these days.
 When I start a project, I never have a clear idea in my head, I tend to get carried away and lose myself for a little while ... hence the word
snipped from an old book page to finish. 
I only wish my photo taking skills were better, what you can`t see in this picture is the beautiful pearly shimmer that the pearlescent Pans give.

Be sure and hop on by the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have created to inspire you all . . . you will not want to miss it!

I'm like you Tracy I never have ideas fixed in concrete..the journey is in the different directions a piece might go. What a delightful Journey your precious girl looks set to embark on.
