Pastel Blending for Spring


Happy spring!

It's time break out the pastel colors! Let's blend together our pastel Pitt brush pen pack, and some mixed media paper.



 Pitt Pens from the Pastel back in colors:

 Light Yellow Glaze

 Light Phthalo Green

 Ice Blue


 Pink Madder Lake 

 Cold Grey I






Start by using the grey Pitt pen to write out the base of your words.



Now start with the yellow and green together. Since these pens can be layered, and since they aren't water based, you'll want to make sure you blend while the ink is still wet, so doing one letter at a time is a good idea. If you wait too long and it dries, just color lightly on top again, and blend quickly. I like to start with the darker color, and then take the lighter one and gently bring the darker color to mix. 



Continue this until all colors are blended.



Now take that grey pen again and add a shadow.



Sit back and admire your work!
