So I ordered a selection of Pan Pastels from Dick Blick after everyone was raving about them on Scrapbook News and Review.
OH MY GOD!!!! I don't know why I hadn't ordered these before. The coloring of chalk application like paint. Definitely going to be my new "go to" item. All other chalk pastels in my possession are heading up to the High School as a donation. Seriously-try them and you'll be hooked as well.
Pulling them out to play I decided to use them in a friends Art Journal Signature (for a swap I am hosting over at PAO). I used some Crafters Warehouse & Club Scrap Stencils, Pan Pastels and a quote printed on vellum. The butterflies are made using a House of 3 scrap piece, sprayed with 2 glimmermist colors and Stampin Up butterfly die.
Perfectly Springy :)
