Katzelkraft day again!


Color challenge for PanPastel BNL !

Our very first challenge at PanPastel BNL! COME join in!

We are to use a colorscheme, you can find it at the end of this post. 

 YES, sometimes I so LOVE to work with a paper napkin to make a collage. 
I made an art journal page about being grateful!
We sometimes forget to say thanks... most of the times we look at what we don't have; we should concentrate on what we do have!

I LOVE the effect of the PanPastel, so soft and gentle to fit the image. I chose to keep it subtle in colors, with only a few details.

1. Choose a paper napkin with a print. Tear the part you want to use out of the paper napkin. (Don't cut it with scissors, because then the edge will be much more visible).
2. Glue it with decoupage glue to your art journal page.
3. Dab some gesso with a sponge over the background to get a mottled effect, and to cover up the edge of the paper napkin.
4, Color with PanPastel. (The paper napkin was only the print in brown).

I used the following PanPastel colors: 
Panpastel Turquoise 580.5
Panpastel Phthalo Blue Tint 560.8
Panpastel Turquoise Shade 580.3
Panpastel Raw Umber Shade 780.3 (for her hair) 

I am entering this in the prompt for Journal52 for week 33 - gratitudes
