Today was very first time I used Pan Pastels (received my first kit by snail mail yesterday). I love it!!!! Thanks to Nathalie (she is in Germany), I am learning and experimenting http://nathaliesstudio.com/online-workshops/ubermedia/panpastel-english/. The text is my own typefont fussycut and adhered with Mod Podge (thank you Christine Mason Miller http://www.christinemasonmiller.com for the technique learned in your http://21secrets2012.ning.com workshop. The rest is all Pan Pastels, sprayed with a varnish. It does not show, but there is crakle paint in the middle of the stencils.
