I'm Dylusional!

 A bunch of us got together at Prairie Art Stamps and played with Dyan Reaveley's stamps and ink sprays.  Our group was led by Gail who gave us guidelines and ideas.  I've been wanting to learn how to do this type of background for journaling pages.


This piece includes some neon pencil under the spray inks, stenciling, stamping.  We used Dyan's kitchen roll (paper towels) technique as seen in her video.  We used water color paper. As you can tell from the photo, I need to flatten the piece before framing it.  New product purchased:  Sharpie water based paint in white with extra fine point.  I used it to outline the hearts.  




My dylusional life of late has kept me from entering my favorite challenges.  I do believe this piece was created the day after the original F&F challenge post requesting stencils and masks. So I'm now officially entering this on the funkie side of Frilly and Funkie Stencils and Masks.

Farewell to the Queen of Disco, Donna Summer.  Back in the early 80's, I totally wore out my cassette tape of your hit songs.  Today's post features one of her songs on my Mixpod.

Fabulous depth and colour to this piece Helene, love the vibrancy of it and the white pen has worked really well. We can't get many Sharpies over here, will have to look for them in Costco or when I come over.
TFS Donna Summer, a great track, RIP Donna.
Have a great weekend.

What a beautiful background, Helene! I love what you've done with Dyan's stencils and I didn't even realize at first that those hearts are part of that stitchy stamp. Love how you've colored them and made them pop. Thanks for joining us at Frilly & Funkie this week!
