Mixed Media Monday - Something Borrowed

It's "something borrowed" this week on Mixed Media Monday but I still wanted to play with my new Pan Pastels. I decided to "borrow" the quote from my favourite Quietfire rubber stamp, which I made bigger on the computer then printed it out and separated the words. The rest of the piece is done on pastel paper in my pan pastels and charcoal. The piece is mounted onto a stretched canvas, which was painted with acrylic paint and is approximately 20x25 cm or 8x10 in. I really LOVE working with the pan pastels!
