Another Colour Blocking Idea with PanPastels

 
Here's a quick easy way to build up some layers and texture to your page :P
Image
Using a large piece of light coloured scrap paper (we all have those :lol: )
swipe the pastel across (or down) the page fading it into the next depth of colour etc...

Cut the paper into strips

Then into little square/rectangle shapes

THen by taking random colours, tuck around the photo. You could even line them up and place across the page for a mount for a photo too - plenty of options to experiment trying all sorts of ways to use the little pieces of paper :wink:
