This past week, i was part of a blog hop offering tonnes of inspiration between Art Anthology and Stampendous (http://www NULL.stampendous NULL.com/) and thought i would share one of my projects here
i started out spraying various colorations onto my watercolour paper

i sprayed and sprayed until i had some great pools of colour and then i blasted them with the heat gun.

my next step was to apply and all over sheen to my page using a brand new Art Anthology product , DIAMONDS!!!!
the light you see in the centre of this picture is the sheen from the spray!! isn’t it the freakin coolest. wait until you see another shot of it further down my posting!!!

now here is where Stampendous takes over.
today’s project i am using the Mixed Media Brush Strokes (http://www NULL.stampendous NULL.com/products-page/backgrounds-borders/crs7001-mixed-media-brush-strokes-rubber-stamp-set/) Rubber stamp set.

now along with this stamp set comes a Free Template which allows you to create a large or small splatter area. so out came my gesso and a blending tool and i was all set to create my splatters!!

i absolutely love where this was going
(http://artanthologyinc NULL.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_4642 NULL.jpg)now remember, this comes with all the pieces required to create this wonderful splat effect INCLUDING the mask portion which i put back in place in order to create just the smaller splats with out fear of edging into the bigger splat area
(http://artanthologyinc NULL.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_4646-e1415973533581 NULL.jpg)now here is my page with all its splatters
(http://artanthologyinc NULL.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_4647-e1415976791140 NULL.jpg)well all of its Stampendous splatters that is. now it is time to add those extra bits i mentioned above with my new Art Anthology Diamond spray!
for these splatters i just took the sprayer out of the bottle and flicked onto my page
(http://artanthologyinc NULL.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_4653-e1415973555317 NULL.jpg)here though i squirted it which allowed a bigger droplet to come out onto my page. i am in LOVE
(http://artanthologyinc NULL.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_4685-e1415976951140 NULL.jpg)now it was time to finish off my page.
i loved how this page made me feel… made me think a little deeper.
