it's no secret, I love playing with spray inks. So much fun in a bottle. There are many great brands out there.
Here i am going to show you some techniques i have done while playing with these spray inks that go beyond just spraying the page. I could go on & on about spray inks. I am completely addicted to them....almost as much as chai teas!
Paint a little bit of the background with your favorite color. Next grab a "lace" or "Die-cut" pattern paper. We all have these in our stash. I placed scrap sheets of cardstock (or honestly whatever else i have lying around) so that i could concentrate my spray. Spray through the die cut paper. You can make it light or heavy. I would start light and then check it to see how much more you want to add.
The first layout is just doing the mist in strip using the die-cut paper. The second is covering the whole background.
Don't let those mask go to waste. You probably have some in your stash. Break them out and use them with the spray inks. Spray inks are water based so all you have to do is rinse them in water. Use one color or multiple colors.
I used three colors on this layout. The green was the prominent with greys & blues softer in the background.
Punch it out. Punches are a great way to make your own masks. You can use the punched out shapes like here. Or do the reverse like Denise showed you in this post.
I used a music note as my "screen" on the first layout. The second layout is using Denise's technique with a "reverse" star punch.
Found objects. That's what i love the most. Unusual shapes that leave you guessing how i did it. This little piece was the best money I ever spent and it was really cheap too. It is a plastic canvas i found at my local hobby store, you know the kind that you weave yarn through. I have also used doilies, buttons, rhinestone pieces. Nothing is off limits.
Can you see the red mist through the screen? And on the second layout after painting the background, I tossed buttons on the layout and then sprayed. Washed off the buttons, easy peasy.
Stamps + Mists = FUN. I did this tutorial up on my personal blog a few months ago. You can GO HERE for the complete step by step. It is so much fun you won't be able to stop.
Bubble Wrap stamping is so much fun. Here i used an orange spray. You can see how cool the bubble wrap looks on the page.
I told you the sprays were water base. Well if you spray again, you can get a cool two tone look. I had already sprayed the bubble wrap with the orange and stamped it. Now I sprayed it with the red. You can see the two colors on the page.
Here is a bubble wrap spray ink page with a script stamped over it.
I hope you found some new techniques to incorporate with your spray inks. Most importantly is to have fun, play around, and see what you create. If you don't like the page as a whole, you can turn it into Cards or ATC cards.
