Saturday morning I'm eating breaky in front of the computer like usual, catching up on any overnight blog posts and I pop on over to Dyan Leaveley's blog for a looksee.
I sat with my mouth open watching her in a video doing a technique she calls Bleach Out.
I also love the was she uses another sheet of card to lift off the excess spray from her page so that it isn't wasted.
And oh my! She has waterbrushes filled with all the colours of the Dylusions range so that she can paint with them! I ♥
I've never done any thing overly arty but this really peeked my interest.
I haven't bleached out all of my circles, just random parts of the and Dyans work looks a lot more bleached out than mine but I was too scared to lay down more water on my page, but I love the two tone look I get with the Dylusions and this technique.
I sprayed a small piece of my waterproof paper in black and then sprayed the rest with the torquoise.
I did 'bleach out' both of the stamped butterflies completey though and reinked them with a water brush, distress ink and distress stain.
I've used quite a few things on this and have decided to do a product list at the end of my post for a change ☺
The distess ink in the circles is the pink but because I hadn't picked up all the torqoise spray it's purple in colour in parts. I used the same stamp that's in the background with a bit of Versa Mark and Perfect Pearls to add another element to this.
Thhe two canvas resist butterflies have been coloured with the torquoise spray and a distress ink.
I love this Papillion stamp set. Love, love, love. ♥
Overall I'm quiet happy with how this has turned out.
It's the first real arty sort of thing I've attempted and I think it's coming to work with me and being pinned on my wall ☺
