Pan Pastel - Altered Media

Hi All

Today over on the Pan Pastel challenge blog (click here) the theme is Anything Goes or Altered Media themed projects if you fancied that instead.

I wanted to alter a beermat to join in with the challenge as I am trying to build up a new set of them which I think I will then glaze.  So here is my beermat:

It started out as a plain grey beermat which I coated with gesso and then painted with Fresco Finish Snowflake.  Next I blended Fresco's in Mermaid, Eggplant and Pansy on top of the Snowflake.  Next I used the Snowflake paint to stamp the words in the background repeatedly.  I stamped the flower from Paperartsy JOFY Collection 13 using black versafine ink and heat set, I also stamped the side border at the same time from the same set.  I coloured the flower and the side border with Fresco paints - I think the colours I used were: Hyde Park, Hey Pesto, Tinned Peas, Haystack, Rose, Spanish Mulberry, South Pacific, Sky and Limelight.  To finish off I added a little Treasure Gold in White Fire around the edges.

I really enjoyed creating this project - I have six more boring grey beermats waiting to be altered!!

Thanks for stopping by today,
