Spray Inks/Paints Week-Fiona Randall


Morning all Fiona here with my project for this weeks theme.

Spray Inks Paints.

I've chosen to decorate one of the Tando A6 Binders which come in a bundle pack of two binders plus 4 pairs of covers to make more journals along with the co-ordinating template pack.

I went with a monochromatic theme for this project. 
I started by cutting a piece of watercolour cardstock to fit the front cover then painted the whole binder inside nd out with a coat of DecoArt Chaky Finish in Relic.
 Then a coat of DecoArt Ultra Matte Varnish applied to seal and protect.
 The watercolour cardstock was then glued to the front cover.
 DecoArt White modelling paste was applied through a Finnabair stencil and dried with a heat tool. 
Water was then spritzed onto the cover before spraying with Beetle Black Tattered Angels Ink Spray.
The water allows for the ink spray to move freely and get into all the nooks and crannies but also dilutes the colour of the ink spray from a stark black to a Dark Grey.
DecoArt White Tinting Base was then applied to the edges of the binder blending in with my finger to give a whispy edge effect. Splatters were then added with a Dina Wakley white gloss spray.
A finnabair Grunge Frame mold cast from resin was given a coat of DecoArt Black Gesso and when dried swiped with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Silver Spark.
The base of the Large Tando Layered Butterfly was given a coat of Relic DecoArt Chalky Finish and whilst still wet a sprinkle of Ranger Rock Candy Glitter added. 
The Top Layer of the Butterfly was given a coat of  Everlasting DecoArt Chalky Finish and once dried with a heat tool stamped with a dotty stamp from my Stash with black Archival Ink then glued to the bottom layer to complete.
The frame was the attached to the binder cover using off cuts of grey board to give depth and dimension and the butterfly attached as the focal point to finish.
Simple techniques but effective and dramatic in the monochromatic colours.
Happy with the way this turned out.
Thanks for stopping by today.
