Spray Inks/Paints Week- Fiona Randall

Morning all Fiona here with my contribution to this weeks theme which is spray Inks/ Paints.

I've gone for the paint approach but sprayed it. This is achieved by mixing the colour of paint with water in a mini mister bottle and voila you have spray paint.
I started by base coating a piece of Tando Chipboard with DecoArt Media Titan Buff. I then applied Paste through a stencil and allowed to dry. Next Up I sprayed with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Dioxazine Purple. Varying the strength of mixes to get different tones of the same colour drying between each application. Further spraying was added with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Carbon Black and DecoArt Extreme Sheen in Vintage Brass but in short sharp bursts to create a spatter effect. A  Large and Small Tando Distressed heart were given a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Quinacrodone Violet mixed with a little Carbon Black. Both were the spattered with the Vintage Brass Spray Mix and then edged with the neat paint of the same colour. Cogs from my Craftalong Kit Cogs Sheet and a Tando Embelishment were then given a coat of the vintage brass paint also. A set of wings from a Finnabair mould were given a coat of watered down DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Dark Grey Value 3 and then swiped with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Burnished Brass to highlight the raised Areas. All pieces were then layered with off cuts of grey board to give depth and dimension on the Chipboard  base. Finally the sentiment was added to the small Heart to finish.
Here's a Close Up of the Detail.
