Have Mercy On Me...

Pan Pastels...sigh...I need a new addiction, like I need a hole in my head. But it's too late now. I've already "played" with them. I'm done for. Completely addicted - hook, line and sinker. So my warning to you is - don't look at them, or play with them, unless you are willing to deal with the consequences. THEY ARE ADDICTIVE!!!! You will WANT all of them. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Here we go - my first creation with Pan Pastels. Titled: Life Change. How can I ever go back to using chalks after using these? I can't. It's that simple. These pastels blend so beautifully. The colours are so vibrant. If you make a mistake, you can just rub it out. They have a gorgeous texture. And they cover chipboard AMAZINGLY! And they work with a stencil so brilliantly - it's so quick and easy. And less messy than sprays and mists. 
   (Please forgive my not so great photography - it's wet, dark, and raining here today). 

But back to the reason for creating this layout. I wanted to record the reasons for our move to Adelaide. My girls are still mad at me for dragging them away from their friends. So I have written my reasons and explanations on cards, and placed them in the envelope (the reasons are many, and personal, so I have hidden them). Hopefully, my girls will read these when they are older, and understand why I made the decisions that I made. 

Yes, moving down here was a big life change, but I know, in my heart, I have made the right decision. This is home. This is happiness. This is peace of mind about so many things.
