Paperartsy Houses

Its ages since I had a go at the Paperartsy challenge and this fortnight the theme has been houses.

I used Darcy's EDY08 plate and paper pierced the houses onto a fresco painted background..

I also used the elements from the second wanderlust plate and stamped with frescos…

Spray inks...

Today sees a new challenge over on the Tando Creative blog, it also sees my son's birthday! grief 24 today where on earth have those years gone????? anyway, its my turn over on the Tando blog today and I've created this art journal page:-

The base is my large dylusions art journal.  I sprayed some very old dylusion ink sprays, one of which is now empty!! lol.  Once these had dried I got the letters mask and the Have your say mask from Tando and spritzed water thro' them trying to lift the ink, it did work in places.  I then used DecoArt media fluid acrylic paint in carbon black to add letters from both masks.  I then stamped using a Stampendous Nathalie Kalbach Marks set and black ink.  I then doodled with white ink.  Three butterflies from the grab bag were painted with the black ink and once dried spritzed with glimmer mists, the mica just sits on the black paint giving them a shimmer.  Hand written doodles and washi tape finish off the page.

Don't forget to pop on over to the Tando blog and see what some of the other DT members have created using spray inks.
