Playing with Portfolio Oil Pastels




I realized it had been a while since I got out my Portfolio Oil Pastels so today thats what I did :)


One of my favorite backgrounds EVER is to scribble them onto your cardstock or matboard (whatever you are using) and then go over it with a light coat of Gesso. Then after its dried a bit, I usually grab a paper towel and scrub some of the gesso off-it gives it a sort of distressed look that I love :)
