PanPastels and StencilGirl Stencils

Hi Friends! 
I am so glad to be here and to show you what I did with PanPastels
 in the Stencil Girl Book I made last month.
I have dabbled with PanPastels for awhile...
very envious of my friends who have large quantities of them!

I decided to use the PanPastels the company generously sent me with 
my VersaMark stamp pad and a couple of StencilGirl stencils.
It is super easy to do. 
The creamy Pthalo Green Shade of PanPastel pigmented powder
just grabbed on to the VersaMark ink.....oh so nicely.
I sponged off any extra pigment that didn't belong.
Then I sprayed it with my Krylon Clear Fixative.

that I taped off the middle section so I just had the outside circles open.
I also used was one of my all time favorites...
the Damask Medium Stencil by Michelle Ward.
So Classic. 

When my background was approximately where I liked it I penciled in my girl...
Filled her in...colored...shaded...
(In case you wondered...the checkerboard is deli paper from a restaurant!)
Wrote my phrase in... hmmm... Too dark...
So I made it stand out with brightly colored gel pens.

There. I love it!

I was wondering how well the PanPastels would work in my Daily....
I tried a border with Terri Stegmiller's Layered Salad Stencil.
I blended the Hansa Yellow and Orange PanPastels
then sprayed it with my trusty fixative
 and there was no problem doodling around it or on top of it!
Good to know!

Hi Friends! 
More Daily Catch Up for you.
Here we are in the end of May
and still in Daily #13.
In Real Life I am getting ready to start on book 15
so I figured I better pile it on awhile!

This is a  Rubbermoon Art Stamp called Bar None....
The design kind of reminded me of a barber pole...
 I thought I might get a lot of use out of it.
It makes a great border.

The circle design is from the June 2014 StencilClub stencils.
It was the smallest stencil of the three and it was 4 bobbins.

The next page came together because of a leaking pen.
It made a mess so I ran with it.
I let it drip everywhere. 
I used it up and then threw it away!

Brave Girl Julie's birthday!!!!!

The bumblebee is from the May 2014 StencilClub stencils.

That little fella shows up frequently!

Brave Girl Jen's birthday!

Till next time...
Happy Arting!

Hello my Friends!
The border on this is from the March 2014 StencilClub stencils.
Just a part of them that I traced several times.

It was my sweet daughter in laws birthday. <3

Ellie the Elephant stamp is from Rubbermoon Art Stamps.

This fun little jumping girl stamp is also from Rubbermoon.

Was it a Renoir painting I was looking at that influenced the pink girl?
I think so!

I find that I use Carolyn Dube's Vintage Typewriter Alphabet Stencil a lot.

I guess I am a true midwesterner!
The rain was pouring down in April and
all I could do is be thankful it wasn't snow!
With the bitter winter we had I figured anything was possible!
No Kidding...several years ago we had 20" of snow in April!

Happy Arting everyone!
I am still no expert on this new computer but I am learning!

My Daily

 Did you miss me? 
Our house was hit by lightning in mid June...
which fried most of the electrical devices we owned....
and I am finally getting back up and running!
It's a long story...
and not a real good experience with the powers
that move those things along....
Oh Well....

The little moon face was a moonmail club stamp....

The doorways are from the 1700's Building Stencil by Carolyn Dube.

Vintage Typewriter Alphabet Stencil, also from Carolyn Dube,
 is what made the 'easter' title. They are nice and bold!

And Yes. We are getting a lightning rod.

Happy Arting!
