Welcome to Adventures in Splattering!
I used stamping, splattering, watercoloring, Distress Crayons, die cuts
Now splattering can be tricky.
And it's lots of fun to see where some of those splatters land!
But first I stamped these pretty blooms with archival ink.
I was playing with Nance (Soul Stampin') that day
and I had taken my Distress Crayons.
I scribbled the yellow crayon on a fancy palette (the stamp case)
and added a little water with my Aqua Painter.
The crayon doesn't dissolve in the water like paint,
but eventually it was in liquid form.
And what a gorgeous shade of yellow!!!!
I added some orange (colors below) toward the center of the flowers
and finished off by coloring the stems and center with Distress Markers.
I did the wash after I got home. I was so busy yakking that I was
afraid to do that there.
After everything was dry, I smooshed some black paint on
another fancy palette (laminated cardstock),
held my breath and splattered.
I actually hit the paper in a few spots!
My table was covered in lovely black spots too.
Fortunately I'd moved most everything off the table.
I probably should add that I masked the flowers while I splattered.
Knowing how splatters fly, I was hesitant to take a chance
on my aim.
I've been told that the best way to splatter is to use a cardboard box.
Doesn't sound as exciting to me. But maybe I'll try to find one next time.
I do love the look of the splatters though. At least this time!
Do check out the CAS Mix Up challenge site.
The Design Team and our Guest Designer Elaine,
have awesome inspiration for you.
There's some links to good splattering tutorials too,
in case you're interested.
