Jen Matott here with a layout using Helmar's products and Pan Pastels! I had never used Pan Pastels before and was excited to have the opportunity to try them out. Let me just tell you how smooth and creamy these pastels are! They are chalky but feel like paint! I knew I wanted to use a stencil with them and also try a resist technique with the glues. Here's the page I made:
You can see that they glue creates a raised edge that resists the pastel. These Pan Pastels are rich and so much fun to use. They blend beautifully and the tools create smooth application onto any paper surface!
I used a Donna Downey Prima stencil over cardstock for this background. Such a fun way to add color and pattern to a page!
The paper layers were added with the 1/2" Zap Dots to pop them up and create depth.
I added embellishments to the page with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. The combination of Helmar glues and Pan Pastel is a perfect match!
Pan Pastels in Permanent Red, Diarylide Yellow Shade, Ultramarine Blue Tint, Violet Shade, Titanium White, and Burnt Sienna Shade.
