Working with pretty pastel colours...canvas memo board


Mixed-media-canvas-for-The-Crafter's-Workshop-by-Yvonne-Yam

I find working with pastel colours REALLY hard. It's not that I don't like pastel colours. But I'm always tempted to go a little richer and deeper...*winks*


Yes, the leaves would be me adding a richer and deeper colour...*LOL*


The leaves were created with Liquitex light modeling paste, The Crafter's Workshop Lovebirds stencil, Faber Castell Artist Big Brush Pen and Golden glass bead gel.


The word "Happy" was cut using The Crafter's Workshop Vertical LOVE Bunting die and covered with mica flakes.


The base was created with scrunched up wrapped tissue and Faber Castell gelatos. [Lizzy Hill, I finally used the Jo Sonja glitter paint we bought at the art store in Hornsby!]

I think you do pastels perfectly....or any other color or shade, for that matter. Your canvas is adorable! Love all the pearl accents and love the modeling paste leaves. The whole "clothesline" strip across the top is just brilliant. And how fun you had some "students" with you! I just love that!
