Sneak Peek - Art Journaling with Altered Pages and Pan Pastels

Hello everyone!  Barbara here for Altered Pages, and I am so excited to be working with PanPastels this month.  PanPastels are now available at!  So, what are Pan Pastels, you might ask.   Leave a comment on the blog for a chance to win a set of Pan Pastels.  

They are "Ultra Soft Artists’ Painting Pastels for Painting, Drawing & Mixed Media! A revolutionary new way to use color! PanPastel Colors are professional artists’ quality soft pastel colors packed in a unique pan format (cake-like). The special qualities of PanPastel Colors mean that artists can blend and apply dry color like fluid paint for the first time."

Here is a peek at what I made.  You can view the project in its entirety over on the Altered Pages blog

I hope you can take a moment to stop on over at the Altered Pages blog to see more of my project today, where I also shared a few tips along the way.  Each day, the design team will be sharing more and more inspiration with these wonderful Pan Pastels.  I have to tell you that I really enjoyed working with them, and they are going to be one of my go-to art supplies.  

And be sure to comment on the Altered Pages blog each day for a chance to win a set of  Pan Pastels.  A random drawing will take place at the end of the month. So, for each comment you make, you get another chance to win.  The more comments, the more chances of winning. (One comment per day, please).  

Have a wonderful, creative week!  And remember, creativity is contagious, so pass it on!!!
