Project

Blushing Beauties

My latest Craftsy class project. I don't have Pan Pastels so I used soft pastels instead. It worked okay but I think the Pan Pastels would be better. I used soft pastels to under paint the background as well. I used one layer of a dark blue then I only had to use one layer of black pencil. It was risky but I was able to use silicone blending tools to push the pastel as close to the flowers as possible and was careful to always brush the dust away from the flowers.

Cynthia Knox asked:
Brendasma, this is spectacular! Wow, I'm so impressed. Your colors are vibrant, your blending is smooth, and your background is that inky black that sets the stage for these divas. Great job with the pastel substitutions. I hope you will tag me on Facebook with this project. You have made me quite proud!
