AJ page with pan pastels

Worked with charcoal pencil, stamped with pan pastels, then pan pastels for background.  I did this page to try the technique of putting pan pastels on the stamp and then spritzing with water before stamping.  I like the effect and will use it again.  The more I use the pan pastels the more I see how they can be used.  If you've never tried them, I highly recommend you try.  You are able to get such wonderful effects of depth in color and blending is super easy.  I will probably add something else to this page at some point.... or maybe not. 

I decided to add some text to complete the page.  "The silence of a flower".
