Gelli-plate and Pan Pastels.........

Hi lovely people,

I was wondering about doing a combination with a gelli-print and than adding Pan Pastels. Because the surface has a nice ' bite' after working with acrylic paints it would be a great background to work on with my Pan Pastels.

I will also show the way I have build up the several GP layers in another blogpost for my contribution on the Gelli-arts Colourstock DT ( 24-11), so keep watching for that one to come!

This is how I started.....on this Gelli-print

Hallo lieve mensen,

Ik was aan het brainstormen over de combinatie van een Gelli-plate achtergrond en daarop te werken met de Pan Pastels. Omdat het oppervlak van een gelli-print een goede ' bite' heeft kunnen de Pan Pastels daarop goed hechten.

Ik zal ook laten zien hoe ik de lagen van de Gelli-print heb opgebouwd in mijn blogpost voor het Gelli-arts Colourstock team (24-11) dus kom dan weer even terug.

Zo ben ik begonnen.....met deze Gelli-print

Voor de stap voor stap beschrijving in het Nederlands verwijs ik jullie even naar het Colourstockblog op deze post.

I have cut a mask myself and put it on the print. Than I've sponged with Versamark around the mask. 
Than adding Pan Pastels Burnt Sienna and Burnt Sienna shade

This is the result.......I wanted more contrast and depth.....

A close-up, you can see the lovely shine of the ARA gold paint

now some darkening of the shadows around her with Pan Pastel Burnt Sienna Extra Dark

now using my bubbels stencil and the Metallic Pan Pastels Light gold and Rich Gold
I did some accenting of the bubbles with the golden shades

and a close-up of the golden bubbels.....

Than I finished it into a card adding a lovely flourish stamp from Magenta and a beautiful quote which very much expressed my feeling about this work......also from Magenta
I embossed the swirl with golden embossing powder.

Well, I was really satisfied after creating this and thought about how this kind of work made me happy........have to do that more often........

Hope to have inspired you to take out your Pan Pastels and Gelli-prints and have a play!
So stay tuned and have a look at my step by step Gelli-print of this one on the 24th of this week.

Don't forget to play and be happy with what you's a part of who you are!  
I also did not get ' perfect' results on my first play rounds but I needed a lot of playing and try-outs along the way.
Remember's the way that is important....not only the destination!

Thanks for your visit and till next time,
