Before Ellen headed to Holland, she started "experimenting" with a NEW product that artists in Europe and the U.S. are starting to get excited about. Since she has been in her home country, she has spent a lot of time with her friend Diny. (Creadin.blogspot.nl) She has been sharpening her "coloring" skills with her Copics, concentrating on techniques doing hair and fabric folds and can't wait to share with us what she has learned.
While there, Ellen has caught that excitement that many artists and paper crafters have experienced when using one of the most popular products in the craft industry at the moment...PanPastel Colors. They come in concentrated cakes that are easy to use and can be incorporated into your artwork in many ways, depending on the application. Cardmakers are creating some gorgeous backgrounds and are accenting their diecuts with them. Art journaling and mixed-media artists are doing amazing things when applying these luscious colors into their masterpieces using their favorite tools and techniques.
