PanPastels are vibrantly full of pigment…and work wonderfully with baby wipes so I decided to build an art journal page of castle towers with them.

Watch How to use PanPastels with baby wipes and a stencil of castle towers on YouTube.
Using my Once Upon a Time stencil, I created the background towers all about the same height. Why? To fill in the page since I have that aversion to white space.
The towers on the stencil aren’t as long as this page but with magic I made them as long as I needed. Not really magic as you can see in the video…I just moved the stencil down.
The middle towers were created the same way as the background ones but more hodgepodge in their heights.
For the final row of towers some planning had to happen when it came to the colors. Planning because I tend to forget what I thought a minute ago, so in the video you’ll see how I made sure I remembered what color I wanted where.
How do I seal PanPastels so there is zero smudging? There are a couple of ways I like to do it. One is with a homemade spray and you can see the video here. One with with a Gel Press plate. You can see that video here.
Is this art journal page complete? Not quite yet. I’ll set it aside and when the muse is ready, she’ll let me know what comes next on this page- and of course, I’ll share it here!
I’ll be teaching a PanPastel Art Journaling Workshop at Artiscape this April in Columbus, OH. Love to see you there!
