Well, just for Carol my twit buddy, here is something made with items from my new Ally Pally stash!
I really do need to get a different journal though, as this one has quite thin paper pages and the sprays do go right through.... I didn't prime this one with gesso, to see just how much.... suffice to say, even after painting the other side with gesso, you can still see the colour through...
So, I used two of the Dylusion sprays I bought (obviously I wanted them all, but limited myself to 5) These are pure sunshine and vibrant turquoise. I blended in the gaps with some distress inks (mustard seed and evergreen bough). I used a thin watered down wash of gesso over the densest part of the turquoise, so that what I wanted to do on top had a chance of showing up.
Then, I took two of the wonderful Dina Wakley stamps (boys star and grungy circles) - these aren't new from Saturday though - and stamped them on top. First of all I used the circles with picket fence distress stain, and I didn't think it showed up till I've photographed it!! Then I used black archival for the stars, and cobalt archival for the circles.
Hopefully tomorrow I will also be in possession of the Dylusion stencils as a packet came today that needed signing for, so of course I was out, and will pick it up from the sorting office on my way to work tomorrow morning.... watch this space as they say!
So, Carol, this is for you! I'm just off to test out my craft scrubbie!!
