Over at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog the challenge is Spray it, Ink it, Paint It. Smear it, Emboss it! This is my kind of challenge.
I started by pulling out my Distress Paints. For some reason I tend to forget about these, but they make really lovely backgrounds. I smeared the paints onto a wet background and then sprayed in some Dylusions Ink Spray over them letting everything run and drip together. Once this was dry I sprayed through some stencils using the same Dylusions spray. I added in some stamping with white acrylic paint and then splattered some black ink around.
When my background was still wet I used some deli paper to mop up the leftover paint. I then used this deli paper to cut out circles and a square to mount my picture to. I added in some tissue tape and some more black ink to highlight where my picture was going.
I then added in my pictures and journaling.
Lastly I stamped my saying with a Tim Holtz stamp and then inked it up an bit and added it over my picture.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the challenge.
