Pan Pastel UK Challenge . . . Bling it on

 Hello and good morning to you all on this 2nd day in November!
So excited to be sharing my design team project for the new challenge over at
and the theme is
" Add some bling "
you can interpret this however you wish!
You have until the 16th November to enter and one lucky person will win a Pan Pastel goodie bag.You do NOT have to use Pan Pastels to enter, just get creative and come join in the fun.
I am not a blingy person but I do love a touch of sparkle and with the new Pearlescent Mediums [ looove ]and Metallic Pans it was time to set to work on a hunk of wood measuring
30 inches by 6 inches
this is my largest doodle doodle doo yet!
 A quick coat of Gesso was applied, doodling with a pencil and then time to add colour . . .
. . . once I had my girl in place and the warmth of the wood was still showing through I knew that all I had to do was add a touch of sparkle with a little Metallic and sparkle medium Pan Pastels  . . .
I wanted those to speak for themself without battling against other colours.
I just wish my camera had picked up all the shimmer and sparkle when I took these pictures!
I`m going to sound really mad here but . . . 
I am sure she was telling me what to do, lol right down to the words she wanted on her pretty dress from
" Somewhere over the rainbow "
you know I was singing away as I was painting her in or should I say screeching . . . . .
Here`s a picture I took inside in the shade just to let you see more of the colour and details.
That`s it for me today
thank you so much for following, looking and reading my ramblings
and we can`t wait to see what you all create!
Be sure and head over to the challenge blog to see what beautiful creations the rest of the team have created for your inspiration.
Now go get crafty and bring on the bling.
Till next time
Big hugs
