Happy Summer! I am enjoying some time with family this summer and working on a few behind-the-scenes things, so here is a re-post of one of my favorite art journal pages using Dylusions Ink Sprays.
Hello! I'm sharing a page I made today with Dylusions Ink Sprays and a stencil Seth Apter created for StencilGirl Products. Blue link are affiliate links. I'll receive a small commission if you purchase products through my links. It won't affect your cost in any way.
I applied some modeling paste through a script stencil onto a plain page to start. It dries quickly and gives a nice raised dimension:
And then I applied three colors of Dylusions Ink Sprays with some water on top of the page. You'll see below that I like to use tags to ‘mop up' the excess, so no color is wasted.
I’ve created a Dylusions Ink Sprays cheat sheet for newsletter subscribers. It explains step-by-step how I apply the colors for blended backgrounds. Click here to get your copy!
Here's how things looked once I'd placed, pressed, and removed three tags. I ended up using one of these tags on this project, and saved the other two for another day.
And here's a peek once the page was dry and I'd done a bit of light stenciling with Distress Inks:
I added some more Dylusions Ink Sprays to one of the tags I used to absorb the excess:
Finally, I attached to the tag to the page and did additional stamping and stenciling:
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
