Couple of Challenges

I started my day [after the gym - yay me], by watching some of Dyan Reaveley's videos on spraying backgrounds.  Gosh that women kills at mixed media art journals!  I, at least got the sprayed background to work!

The Dylusion inks are fabulous!  So bright and vivid!  I used a bunch of colors.  I did learn, and will share with all of you, the hint given -- keep warm colors together, or cool colors together.  Should you mix the 2, you will get mud.  I always wondered what I was doing wrong... Now I know~ :)

I took one of my backgrounds and followed through with some multi media stamping.  I was inspired by the 2 Crafty Girls September Inspirational Challenge.

Again, with multi media you use so many products that I don't want to overwhelm you. Suffice to say, gesso, embossing paste, more sprays, and some stamps.  Yes, my hands are semi stained, but a baby wipe did take most of it off.  I was inspired by the grass grass photo, along with the bokeh photo.

To keep with my style, I also joined in at CASology; circles.

I used some stencil sponging,and Bo Bunny Stained Texture, with a sentiment from Neat & Tangled Everyday Labels. I do love circles! :)

A great day!  Thanks challenges!

Thanks for stopping by~

Oh wow! Your sprayed background rocks! Such coolness in these two cards!

You rocked your sprayed backgrounds. Dyan Reaveley has lots of tips and she's a bit crazy ... I really enjoy her videos. :)

Great designs for both cards. The first one is so dramatic with all the layers and the black added ... very cool. And the second ... well, CAS perfection is what it is!! xx
