Okay so here is the GORGEOUS colour palette for this week!!! What an awesome challenge for such a HUGE milestone! I am so honoured to be part of this celebration!!!
So as part of this blog hop I am going to be showing you a little cool technique which I LOVE and want to share with you all and I will also be offering a very yummy prize, all from my very own scrappy stash!!!
Rolled flower...doesn't it look just like the drumstick Finlay is eating??!!
Man I love that Hambly transparency :)))
Now on to my paint technique....
There is no trick or secret or anything hard about this technique....all you need is some SPRAY PAINT!!! yep you read right....I discovered it a little while back and its something I have just been fiddling around with since. But if you don't have any spray paint or can't access it anywhere, water down some paint in a spray bottle and that will be good enough too.
Here is how you too can rock that 'drip' technique.... (make sure you are wearing some disposable gloves while doing this...otherwise you will end up with very coloured and sticky hands!!!)
Spray come spray paint into the lid...now the more you spray into the lid the thicker and bigger your 'drips' will be.
Drip the paint from the lid onto your paper......
Lift the paper up to get your 'drips'..... move it, wiggle it until you get it how you would like it...don't forget...photos and embellishments CAN cover a lot... :))))
Then let it dry.....one thing I LOVE about spray paint as apposed to to paint is that it drys fairly quickly...so I am not waiting around for ages before I can get on with my layout. But on saying that, you can do that with mists too...which are my favourite :))))
NOW always remember there is no right or wrong with art so have a go and if its not quite what you were after, you can always cover it up with embellishments etc etc. Also as they say..'practice makes perfect' so keep practicing and you will become more confident at it.
So for all those who are playing along in the blog hop AND have completed this colour combo (#200) here is my prize.....(and I am willing to post anywhere)...
Hope you have enjoyed my little 'show and tell'....let me know what you think or if you have any questions, please leave me a comment....
Thanks for visiting and for your wonderful comments...:))
