Happy Friday! So are you all preparing for the next big Polar Vortex??? Dang, seems like we were just warming up from the last one. Oh well, guess we're skippin' fall and getting right into winter here - BRRRRRRR!!!!!
I'm not skipping Fall in my crafting so Mother Nature will just have to get over it. Today I have a fun pairing - a Gelli Plate Print + PanPastels.
Now this is what my print started off looking like. This print was actually just intended to lift off some of the paint already on the plate through a stencil - not a real for sure intentional print. I thought the colors were pretty so I kept it. I'm glad I did because it works perfectly with my PanPastels....
I pulled out my red/orange/yellow PanPastels and set about blending from reds to a pretty straw yellow.
The PanPastels blend so smoothly it's very easy to get a beautiful effect. I love how the lighter yellow design from the Gelli Plate print adds such a subtle pattern.
I trimmed it out to 5x7 - cause I couldn't stand to waste any of it, cut some leaves from another scrap of fall-ish colored print and stamped the sentiment "So Grateful" (Unity Stamp Co).
Fun and easy but such beautiful results!
Now for the give-away! I have the set of PanPastels I got to use for the DT gig on Altered Pages when they partnered up (Pastels Set of 5 colors + Sofft Tool & Foams) for one lucky reader!! Is that reader you??? It could be - all you have to do to be entered into the drawing is to answer this question...Fall or Winter? Which is your favorite season???
You'll have until 11-14-14 to post your answer to be entered to win!
Good Luck Everyone
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
