As always our DT have been creating some mixed media magic, let's check out what they've been up to this week:

Tracy Evans - I am really enjoying using PanPastels at the moment, the blend of colours is fabulous and the colours work so well together. Once again I used a combination of circles in my design.

Yvonne - A birthday card for a very special relative.  All details are over on my blog, would love to see you there.

Tracy Scott - A new journal page in my large dylusions journal using the fabulous PanPastels and black and white doodle pens, check out my blog for more details.....

Claire C I've had loads of fun creating this little piece of fairyland to hang my keys on. I coated the MDF base with gesso and then got to work adding lots of colour with my PanPastels. I sealed it with my homemade sealer spray made with 1/3 matte medium and 2/3 water in a spritzer bottle and left it to dry before adding polka dots and stripes to the letters with a white Graph'It shake pen. Once everything was dry I created a scene for the background with my Pans on some white card and attached this to the back of the mdf.

here are links to the products I've used

Lou: I decided to make a tag using up lots of emphera bits I recently found whilst having a much needed tidy up! I have used my pan pastels to both lighten and age the pieces.

Terry, I had fun altering a photoframe with my favourite butterflies in it, lots of Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and the roses stencil from DD were used. I colored the frame with Pearlescent Pans and White Coarse and topped it all with Mat Gel Medium.

These are the products I worked with
