Irresistible - Dawn Heald

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!

Instructions -

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.
PaperArtsy Stamps - Lin Brown 24 and 23

Well, hope this inspires you to have a 
play over the weekend!

I'll be back tomorrow with our next 
Weekly Challenge.
