Here is my project using spray, doodles and washi tape.
I created three different papers using Dylusion Sprays. I used these to create my flowers and leaves. The Dylusions Sprays I used for the first one was Squeezed Orange, Cherry Pie and Funky Fuchsia. For the blue paper, I used London Blue, Calypso Teal and Polished Jade. For the green paper, I used Cut Grass, Pure Sunshine and Fresh Lime.
I placed a stencil on each of the papers and spritzed water over the stencil using my Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer. I let that sit for about 30 seconds and then removed the stencil. I then rolled a roll of paper towels over the stenciled area on each of the papers to lift the ink leaving the image behind.
I chose Dylusions Fancy Florals stamp set because they look like doodles and stamped them onto the three different papers I created with the sprays.
After stamping the flowers and petals onto the papers, I cut them out using Tim Holtz Scissors.
I then used a Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen and traced the doodles that were already on the flowers from the stamp.
I begin creating the panel on which I will put all my elements and where I will do some stamping and doodling. I begin with the same process on a 6x8 piece of chipboard as I did with the papers I made for the flowers and petals.
I add some stamping onto the background with coordinating Archival Inks. I used Leaf Green and Garden Patina for the flowers and swirls.
I sprayed White Linen Dylusions spray over the Simon Says Stamp Ring Cluster stencil in random areas. When that was completely dry, I began doing my own doodling. I use acrylic paint pens and draw flowers, shapes and other little doodles onto my background. I make quite a few more changes to my background which you will see in my completed project.
I use Paper Artsy Snowflake paint to create a white area where I stamped and painted one of the birds from Dina Wakley's Scribbly Small Birdies. I used Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints to paint the bird brushing on the strokes with a tiny, tiny paint brush. I used Tangerine Twist, Banana and London Bus paint.
Part of the sentiment I wrote by hand onto white card stock with a 1.5 Fude Ball Pen and I stamped out the word "smiles" with Dylusions Dy's Alphabet stamp set in Jet Black Archival Ink. I cut the sentiments out following the lines of the letters. On my completed panel you will see that I edged the two pieces with Black Soot Distress Ink.
I adhered my flowers onto the side of the panel with 3M Double-Sided Foam Tape as well as the sentiment and distressed the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. In the top right corner I added washi tape and my project was complete.
