Craft Barn day again today and we were given proper artists medium to play with, I feel just like a real artist!
I must say I struggled with the Fabre Castell pastels to start with as they are so different from the sort of thing we crafters usually play with but after a little experimenting think I'll be buying a few more!!
Want to know how I got this fab background?
The full how to is over on The Craft Barn Blog.
You've probably got a few of these type of pastels knocking around dig em out and have a play, and if not you can buy the colours separately to try them out. There's a discount voucher to be had too so don't miss out!
