For my Eclectic Paperie DT project this week I decided to have a play with my Dylusions sprays. I am still learning how to use these lovely inks so my journal is the best place to do some dabbling !
I started by spraying Lemon Zest and Fresh Lime on to the page. I then dried it off with my heat gun, I've found that if I don't I end up with a muddy colour !
I then used the Chevron stencil with Vibrant Turquoise and flipped it over to use the ink on top of the stencil. I did the same with the Wendy Vecchi Dotty stencil using Squeezed Orange. At this point I wasn't liking what I was seeing !
I then used the Wendy Vecchi Layered Flowers stencil with some white acrylic paint. I grabbed the Spinning Tops stencil and my Mowed Lawn Distress ink and used it around the edges. Then used the Art Is stencil with Black Soot Distress ink.
I stamped the flowers from the Wendy Vecchi Art Colors Life set with black Archival ink. I used Wendy Vecchi's black Embossing Paste with the Bingo stencil and I also stencilled the word Remember using the Wendy Vecchi Classic Words stencil.
I highlighted the numbers using my Posca pen and rubbed some Classic Treasure Gold over the word Remember. The little tag has had Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks blended over it and I've used the Reversed Chicken Wire stencil with some more Ripe Persimmon DI. The sentiment is from the Wendy Vecchi A Form of Art set which I thought it was quite appropriate !
I think it turned out OK in the end but I still think there's lots more dabbling to be done !
