Technique Blog Hop – Spray Pen

Welcome to this month’s blog hop!  This time around we are using the spray pen and hope you find lots of inspiration for this technique.  If you have already started the hop, you will be coming from Michelle.

Easter Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Unknown Paper Packet (retired), Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired),
Colonial White Cardstock, Hollyhock CardstockCreate-a-Shade Paint, Spray Pen, Hollyhock Reinker, Cricut Artiste Collection, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Petals (retired), and Colonial White Brads.  Sketch from Sketch Savvy.

I used the spray pen in a very simple way but it is my favorite.  I used it to spray the background paper of my layout.  This is a great way to add a touch of color and pattern without using patterned paper.  I also sprayed the Just Bloom Flowers, some lighter and some darker for variety.  For my mixture, I filled the pen with water up to the 7th line, then added reinker up to the next line, and added 4 drops of the Create-a-Shade Paint.  I always add the Create-a-Shade Paint because I like the extra little sparkle that it adds.

June Scrap Our Stash Challenge #4

SCThoseGuys

The June Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is a All About Our Guys!  Create a Male layout using at least 5 brads from your stash!  What a great challenge for the month of June with Father’s Day.

Here is my layout:

Boy Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Later Sk8r Paper Packet, CTMH Fast and Furious stamp set, CTMH inks (Slate, Pear, Outdoor Denim, and Lagoon), Bazzill Collection Metals – Mono Mix Brads, and Making Memories Plain Charmed Photo Corners.

With three girls, I rarely do masculine layouts.  However, I had these pictures of my nephew and they were begging for me to use this stamp set!  The brads were easy to incorporate and I also added some metal from my stash.

What will you create? Go to Scrap Our Stash to submit your own layout.  You have until June 29th.
