Morning crafty bloggers.......hope you're all well & had a lovely weekend.
We had the laziest of weekends & while it's nice once in a while it'll be great
once the boys & Miss B are all back at College/School later on this week....
then I think we'll enjoy the weekends much more.
So as you might know........I've dedicated Monday to Mixed Media.... there's much
I want to learn & I figured if I dedicated a day to it you lovely lot might come
along & learn with me & we can maybe share some hints & tips as we go.
So today's piece was actually my 2nd attempt....I wanted to see how the ink
would run if I sprayed it directly onto a gesso'd canvas. It did run slightly but if
I sprayed some water onto the canvas it worked much better. I think my
problem was I was trying to be too precise & neat......once I let myself just go
with it I was pretty chuffed with the result & had fun......hence the words:
REMEMBER TO PLAY!
So I started with a blank canvas, sprayed lightly with water then sprayed with
my chosen inks, tipped it slightly then the best part......watching the colours
run.....and you can just keep spraying til you're happy! I dried it with the heat
gun & while still damp I sprinkled some glitter over the whole thing.....oh my
gosh, when the light catches it it looks so pretty! I then added the die cut
butterfly, the sentiment & finished with a few gems.
Hope you like it........and don't forget to leave me a comment so I can come
visit you too......thanks for calling!
