inspiration monday


i've discovered that inspiration loves a good party.....
especially when all your favorite art supplies are on the guest list.






because once "everyone" gets together......






and starts to mix and mingle.......








fun things start to happen.








and before you know it,  inspiration is single-handedly
responsible for an all-out artfest!  woo hoo!



{this was created in my elvie journal using pan pastels,
pitt pens, 4B graphite pencil, uniball signo white gel pen}

So cute! Makes me want to get out my pan pastels!

Alice said...

lori - when you use pan pastels in your journal, do you need to fix them afterwards? with a spray, or a heat gun, or anything so they won't smudge or smear?

just this morning i was thinking about all the pan pastels i do not use and i saw your post about them and thought it "must be" that i get them out and use them....the trouble is that if "it" is not in front of me i tend to forget i have "it".....

Hi Lori,
Love how your Elvie Journal is coming together!

Do you have to spray the pages on which you use pan pastels with some kind of fixative or are they low dust enough that you don't need it?
Thanks!
