Pan Pastels and stencils

I recently got a couple of Pan Pastels to play along with Miss Donna Downey's Pan Pastels Series she has re-released.

I've been wanting to play with this medium for quite some time, and missed the opportunity to take her classes the first time. I am so glad she makes her Online classes available for those who wanted to but couldn't and now can. That's quite a mouthful, but you know what I mean.

Donna's classes are just chocked full of info and tips! In the first class in her Pan Pastel Series, she introduces us to stencil play, which for someone like me, who has absolutely no artistic drawing ability, this is such a pleasure cruise!

Check out her website for more classes or for this series and play along...

July Tag Swap

I am sooo late in sending this tag for the July Tag Swap over on Google + in Sheri Whitfield's community "Altered Tag Swap". But, as I always say, "Better late than never"...

The theme for July was "Patriotic"

I used a Ranger Black #8 tag which measures 6.25 inches by 3.125 inches. I love how Twinkling H2Os show on black and wanted to paint a transparent flag on it, which would show all that yummy shimmer so nicely. I used Poppy Red, Blue Flame and Heavenly White Twinkling H2Os.

I stamped the image and embossed with White Embossing powder. Got out my red & white, and blue & white Bakers Twine, wrapped it three times around the upper-section of the tag, then tied it off. I added a tiny red safety pin holding a silver star to the knot.

In my stash I had cute star shaped buttons in red, white and blue which I adhered to the tag and then added Glossy Accents to make them shiny.

I had just received some Sari Ribbon and it had a great blue and red in it. I cut them into thinner strips and added them along with some more Bakers Twine to the top of the tag.

I then printed off a sentiment, adhered to the bottom of the tag.

I love the simplicity of this tag and the shimmer those Twinks add! Hope my swap partner likes it too!!!

Thank you for stoppin' bye!!!
