WISH...an art journal page with PanPastel



Welcome to the StencilGirl & PanPastel Blog Hop! The StencilGirl team has been featuring wonderful PanPastels and StencilGirl stencils in their creations all week!  I hope you have been tuning in and learning all the versatility of these projects.

I decided to create a journal page.  I began with my favorite thing ~ collage ~ gluing down torn music sheets on my jumbo moleskin journal. I love to work BIG.  I then gave it a light white wash with Titanium White.


Before adding any PanPastels or other texture, I stenciled the word WISH with Carolyn Dube's Jumbo Typewriter stencils and some Teal paint.


I then took Andrea DeMeng's Free As a Bird and Fowl Play stencils and scraped molding paste through it in various parts of my journal page.  I also used Cecilia Swatton's Queen Anne's Lace stencil to create a garden of flowers.



After the paste dried, I did a light wash in watercolor.


After the watercolor wash dried, I began with some PanPastels for color mixing in Diarylide Yellow pan pastel in various areas, beginning the layers of my sky.



I used Magenta pan pastel on the flowers and came in with different layers of Bright Yellow Green, Chromium Oxide Green and Phthalo Green Shade PanPastels to create the stems, grass and brush.


I painted Titanium White inside the birds to block out the music notes and after they dried, I went over the texture on them lightly with Phthalo Blue PanPastel. As a finishing touch I went around the edges and into the sky with violet and turquoise PanPastels.  I then took my wet paintbrush and dipped it in the watered down white and flicked sprinkles over the entire page.


Here are some close ups:



Here is the whole page.


Here is a list all the PanPastel colors I used in my project.  
Magenta
Bright Yellow Green
Diarylide Yellow
Phthalo Green Shade
Chrom. Oxide Green
Phthalo Blue
Violet
Turquoise

These are the sponges I used to apply my pan pastels:
Angle Slice Round
Angle Slice Flat
Point Sponge Bar
Knife & cover No. 1 Round

They can be found on the PanPastel website.  For more ideas, be sure to "like" their Facebook Page!

  5. Thank you, Kristen, for choosing my 9"X12" stencil Queen Anne's Lace as one of the tools for creating this magnificent artwork! I had never thought of using this stencil in multiple applications across a wide spread, as you have done, and I love the results! The stencils you chose work in beautiful harmony together. Great idea!

  6. I like the dimension with the paste and it's good to know the pan pastels will color over it.
