Hey there guys.....Today I am joining in a fantastic blog hop along with Scrap 365 magazine blog and the Pan Pastel team! 

The Scrap 365 team challenged the Pan Pastel team to go crazy with colour so how could we refuse?

So, Awash with colour huh?
Well, the Scrap365 team asked Nikky to choose a specific colour palette and to use it for inspiration.

This is the colour palette that I have worked with....


It is called Succulent Pallette and I just love these springlike colours.....I did not have all the colours Pans, but I made the darker violet and the green myself with the colours that I do have.

The colours that I have played with are:

You can click the image and it will take you to the store for checking out these amazing colours...


 So this is what I have made....
 I have never made a layout but for the Scrap 365 bloghop I thought I would make something.
I started out with getting all sorts of stuff that I wanted to use......such as the panpastels, pictures of my girls, honeycomb gears, dutch doobadoo hearts and board, butterflies and stencils.....and a canvas....

 So what I did was I started out with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and used the Stencils from Dutch Doobadoo. 

Then I placed some Honeycombs for decoration. On Top I played with my colour palette with PanPastels and mixed some of the colours to create the right colours

 So then I mixed the colours I used lots of heartssmall heartsbutterflies and gears from Dutch Doobadoo to create this layout. I added some lace to finish my project.
