Happy Weekend everyone,
It's supposed to be a nice day today and do you know
cos I'm working all day in the shop!!
So come and say hi if you are in the area, we'd
love to see you.
So, today is our second day of Irresistible,
Dawn is here to show you what she has
been up to.....
Hi all, what fun I've had using these sprays. Not
just your ordinary colour spray, these leave you
with translucent textured colour. You can just
simply spray or use a stencil, flick them, make
circle dome embellishments by unscrewing
the lid and dabbing the end of the stick on
craft mat. When dry they easily peel off
ready to stick to your projects.
I wanted to try another way of using them.
So I painted with them. I'm impressed.
You can even paint texture into the areas
coloured too. Embossing does push the
colour away so paint a very thin layer
then paint over again, it helps.
Lovely for colour washes and you can darken the
colour by adding the colour liquid thicker in
areas. So you can achieve tonal effects.
Play around and you'll see their magical
qualities. Also check out next week's project
as I've used them again in another different way.
I've done an art journal page for this week's
project. Working in the journal I made
previously. Yes book pages, glued together.
There is two as one was a practice!
Paint two coats of white gesso all over page. Stamp
images and heat emboss with clear detail powder.
Stamp bird onto plain paper and cut out to make
a mask for later.
Paint main images with Irresistible Texture sprays.
Leave to dry.
Meanwhile add some more stamping without
embossing and paint again with Irresistible Sprays.
I didn't have a yellow so mixed some paint with
glossy accents. It worked to a degree but not as
good or easy to work with as the spray colours are.
Finally mask off the bird, flick with colour from
the bottles let dry then lightly add some distress
ink to page. Wipe over page with kitchen roll or
cloth to remove any ink from spray coloured
areas. See they resist. Lol!
Wow, thanks Dawn, an amazing project!
There is more than one way to use these
This is what Dawn used -
Pear Tart, Sweet Plum, Lulu Lavender, Angel Pink, Lady Bug.
Well, hope this inspires you to have a
play over the weekend!
I'll be back tomorrow with our next
