Using spray paints/inks on a project - Brenda

Today we start a new theme and this week we are using sprays on a project. I hunted out some old bottle of colour sprays and used them alongside a DecoArt white mister spray and got some really quite nice results.

I used a media board painted with gesso and when dry scraped white modeling paste through a stencil.

These pieces I took from a bits box which were already painted - leftovers from previous projects.

I also grabbed these from another bits box of Tando leftovers to add to the design. As you can see these were not painted or sealed so I started by gluing these to the media board ...

.... and when dry I gave it all a coat of gesso.

Next I sprayed some water based sprays and DecoArt white mister over the surface, dried it and repeated again to give me my base  colours ...

.... and then dribbled some watery media acrylic paints, ....

.... sanded and inked the edges of the board and finished with some splatters of titanium white.

Because the sprays I used were water based they created some lovely mottled effects together when I spritzed them and when I repeated the layer. 

Keep a lookout for some other projects coming up from the team this week.

Thanks for stopping by.
