Hello it's Sue here and today I'm sharing a journal page that was initially inspired by a YouTube video of Dyan Reaveley demonstrating her Dylusions sprays. I say initially as the page took a totally different path than I was aiming for !
I sprayed the page first of all with White Linen then I drew the circles using the spray mechanism from the sprays using various colours. Now in Dyan's video the colours wicked out beautifully BUT on my page the ink stayed exactly where it was ! The paper in my journal is really absorbent, I have discovered, so not a good surface for this technique.
So then I decided to spray the page and discovered that the colours were alot more muted than they should be, and were almost pastel. I used Melted Chocolate and it changed to a mauve colour !
I then used the Fleur de Lis stencil with acrylic paint and I was starting to like things a lot better now I had some colour on the page. I also used the Mini Numbers and Mini Art Is stencils using some more acrylic paint.
I added a little further stencilling with the Mini Vine stencil and then stamped with the Grungy Circles stamp and Cornflower Blue Archival ink.
I originally stencilled the Mini Silhouette straight on to my page but it didn't stand out enough. So, I stencilled it onto some white card, using acrylic paints. I then drew around the edge with a black pen and cut it out. To cover the white edges I rubbed some Black Soot Distress Ink all around them.
The letters are from the Tim Holtz Alphabet Soup and I've painted them with acrylic paint and then brushed metallic wax around the edges.
The words are stamped with one of those cheap little alphabet stamp sets and I've rubbed some Distress Ink around the edges.
I hope you've enjoyed my dabbling with Dylusions !
