Just spray it on..

Good morning blogland! Happy sunday to you all.The current theme over on the paper artsy blog is sprays. Now I have quite an assortment of sprays and I expect most of you do too..(just wish more companies would make permanent ones!!) You can pop over to the PA blog here and see what Leandra has to say and her video explaining all the different kinds of sprays you can get or make for yourself. just here.

So out came a 5x7 canvas and as I love Finnebairs work did a finn canvas.. First of all I added some texture using some grunge paste and texture paste using a selection of stencils and micro beads.

I die cut a heart from some corrugated card, bird and some gears, also some wings and lace trim from various dies. I arranged them all on the canvas added some flowers from my stash and played around with it until I was happy and stuck it all down. then a coat of white gesso. Now the sprays! when I tell you it has had layer and layers of spray I am not exaggerating lol!! It has had gold, copper orange..all sorts and I just didn't like it. It ended up with a mixture of blues and greens from lindy's stamp gang and cramel apple glimmer mist.

 I then took the sepia and coffee archival inkpads and ran them over the raised parts.Little touches of onyxite treasure gold and voila!

Thanks for stopping by.......................................

  2. Oooh, that is just gorgeous Lin! Love the colours you ended up with and all the elements you used to get such a fabulous textured result.

  3. So worth the perseverance with the sprays Lin. It's fabulous and where would we be without a touch of Treasure Gold! Xx

  4. Fabulous corrugated card as your focal point Lin, so many lovely colours and textures. Fantastic project :-)

  5. Gorgeous shine and shimmer on this canvas. I like the textures as well, cardboard, micro beads, flowers...Great work!

  6. I guess that is the down side of sprays, if they are not permanent, and you are not loving it, then it's hard to make adjustments. I was playing with a few of the Lindys at Port Sunny yesterday, and being permanent they certainly seem easier to work with, or at least layer up. The texture in ths looks fabulous! And love the ink at the end too! ~Leandra

  7. Oh wow - colours right up my street and I love that fab corrugated heart.
