It's been several weeks since I last joined in the fun over at Julia's wonderful Blog "Stamping Ground" where the crafting world shares its craft spaces with each other and what they are currently upto. I am currently upto making an inky mess, I actually cleaned up my desk before I took the photo's this week as even I couldn't stand it lol. Last week I visit my local craft shop "The Stampers Gallery" in Tarleton, owned by the lovely Sue, who happened to have just taken stock of Dylusions Sprays, stencils and Stamps. I had been looking at this wonderful range by Dyan Reaveley on the internet so in my continued effort to support my local craft shop decided to put my money in the till and purchased the full set of 12 sprays, a couple of stamp sets and a stencil. (I have since bought more stamps). So I set about creating my inky mess.
So I set about making some inky backgrounds using Dylusions ink sprays squeezed orange, Fresh Lime and crushed grape. They are for the backgrounds for some Halloween themed projects I will be making soon. They are really me having a good play including playing with stencils and seeing how water reacts with them. Water creates a fantastic effect as these are water colour sprays no pigment. You do however go through loads and loads of kitchen rolls. I also made a couple of tags, one with dylusions stamps. The great thing about them being water colour is that you can stamp with Archival ink and then using a waterbrush remove the colour from within the image (more kitchen roll) and then colour using the dylusions sprays as paint. I have made a couple of tags just to practise some techniques and I can honestly say I am hooked on dylusion sprays.
Anyway I look forward to seeing what you all have been upto
