It's time for a new challenge at
Our challenge this month is
Let me tell you a tale of spraying.
I had 6 bottles of Distress Spray Wash that a friend had given me.
I tried it several months ago and found it to be very intense color.
So I decided that I would dilute it and see if I liked it better.
When I got to the color STREAM (my favorite of the lot), I could see that it
had separated and the spray was clogged. I worked and worked to clean out the sprayer
to no avail. So I dumped a color that I didn't like. (It's non-toxic so I hope it was OK to dump it down the drain.) I washed and washed and washed the bottle and sprayer
and finally had it clean enough to put the diluted STREAM into it.
I excitedly pulled out some paper and began to spray. Evidently the bottle can read and it decided to STREAM instead of spray! Believe me there was a STREAM of choice words floating around! Fortunately there was some splatter and excess spray from the STREAM on the pieces I had laying off to the side. I cut these birds out of that renegade splatter
and threw the STREAM and rest of the washes away!
I'm still cleaning up the splatter and spray left over from that!!!
Lesson to self. When you spray get a big box to contain it and go outside to do the deed.
At least I got some pretty birds out of it.
I put them over a UFO of Brusho. I thought they looked quite content sitting in the sun.
I hope to see what you can do with sprays.
I hope your experience is better than mine.
