A PanPastel Art Journal Page

Video tutorial using PanPastels  on an art journal page with stencils by Carolyn Dube

An art journal page doesn’t have to happen all at once.  Truly, there are no rules when it comes to art journaling and play.  A few weeks ago I stenciled the heart with paint and let it be until I had a  stack of PanPastels out on my counter that were whispering to me.

I love playing with PanPastels because they are so forgiving.  That means no pressure to make it perfect since it is all blendable.  You’ll see what I mean in the video…and you know there will be an Oops in there that turned out to be just what I needed…

To seal the PanPastels so they don’t smear, I use the Gelli Plate to apply a coat of gel medium.  You can see how I do that in February’s Colorful Gelli Print Party.

    like the ledger underneath, panpastels look fun, need to put them on my wishlist.

    Wonderful video to watch while I ate my breakfast.
    I’ve recently started to use PanPastels and I really like them.
    The cosmetic sponges were also a good find from another blog and are so easy to use and much cheaper than a “special tool”.
    Thanks for the ideas that you give freely to your readers Carolyn!

    What a gorgeous ledger to begin with, and a fabulous page you’ve created with your PPs!

    I believe what you said was very logical. However, what about this?
    what if you were to write a killer title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however suppose you added something that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean A PanPastel Art Journal Page | Carolyn DubeCarolyn Dube is kinda vanilla.
    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers
    to open the links. You might try adding a
    video or a related pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little

    I think the admin of this web page is genuinely working hard in favor of his web site, as here every material is quality based

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous
    blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!
