It’s the world’s most famous nosey-fest time again! Click on the WOYWW link in my sidebar to go to the lovely Julia’s blog and find out what it’s all about!
I have been experimenting with my new Dylusions Ink Sprays – I’ve done a post all about it, but thought I’d show you what I did in my second session. I’m doing a flower swap with Judy soon, and thought I could combine colouring the flower pieces with creating some backgrounds, using the flowers as masks. These particular pieces will be made into roses (pattern courtesy of Penny Duncan – thanks Penny).
On the left you can see my kitchen roll which has been used as a giant blotter! Dyan Reaveley, who invented the Dylusions inks, frequently uses her kitchen roll in this way, simply rolling the whole thing over the work, which absorbs excess ink without moving what’s underneath. You end up with loads of beautifully coloured sheets of kitchen paper which can then be used for other projects!
At the back of the desk, in front of the inks, you can see some strips of watercolour paper that have also been sprayed – originally I threw these away but then thought they could be used in projects, so I rescued them and sprayed them along with the rest.
This is the Most Fun Ever. If you haven’t tried these inks, I thoroughly recommend them. The colours are so vibrant, and they react with water, blending wonderfully, and can be lifted off when spritzed and blotted. So much potential!
Thank you to everyone who visited my blog last week. I managed to visit quite a few but never manage the whole list – there are just too many these days! Have a happy WOYWW, everyone, and I look forward to seeing what’s on everyone’s desk this week.
If anyone would like, or knows someone who might like a second-hand Cricut machine, please let me know – mine is in Shoshi’s Blog Shop. I no longer need it now I have upgraded to the Black Cat Cougar.
