Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Indulge Your Desire To Play
I'm not sure what prompted me to buy them. Actually, I'm quite sure. I somehow happened upon a video where someone was playing with the metallic Pan Pastels and after watching the video I just had to have those darn pastels (I need to stop watching videos!). So I treated myself to the set and when they arrived I set them aside...until a few hours later I could feel them pulling me into the craft room! I just had to play with them! I had no idea what I was going to do! I just knew that I needed to open those pastels and start playing with them. I needed to learn how they felt and what they could do. So, I embossed a piece of card stock with the Square Lattice, took out some little sponges, and went to town! I ended up with the background panel that you are seeing on this card. Of course I then needed to figure out what to do with the panel! :) The card is what happened as a result of indulging my desire to play with those Pan Pastels.
I have to say that I'm still not sure how the Pan Pastels really work or what I can really do with them. But what I do know is that they definitely brought out my desire to play and for that I am grateful! :) How can you indulge your desire to play today???????
