Spray Test and Canvas With Cindy Brown

Hi Gang, it’s Cindy here today and I’m testing the four different  Lindy’s Sprays and then using them to create a beautiful custom Lace Canvas .

First I tested the 4 types of Lindy’s Sprays on different papers to see how they look on different backgrounds – black, textured, paper and yupo.

Basic Technique

  1. The first test is on a black paper. I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).   I was surprised that you can actually see all the sprays on black card, though mostly just the shimmer color. little-b-test
  2. The second test is on a watercolor paper or I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).   The colors are bright and true on watercolor paper – they look perfect!

  3. The third test is on a mixed media paper or I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).  Each of the sprays look wonderful on the Mixed Media Paper as well!.  Each of the sprays looks wonderful on the Mixed Media Paper as well!mixed-media-paper-test
  4. The fourth test is on a Yupo paper I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).  The sprays took longer to dry on the Yupo so they ended up with interesting little drying marks and patterns.yupo-paper-test
  5. Here is the final result, the sprays look different depending on the surface you spray them onto – but are always beautiful!

You can see my tests in this video :

 

Now it’s time to create a Beautiful Canvas. I used all the same Sprays  that I tested to make my Lace Canvas.

  1. Cover frame with Tape and Washi Tape.

  2. Glue on beautiful Lace for texture.

Vibrant Flat Fabios Sprays for a Colorful Journal Page

Hi Gang, it’s Solange Marques here and today I’m highlighting a product for Lindy’s Stamp Gang: Flat Fabios Sprays.

Flat Fabios sprays are perfect when you want a vibrant color without shimmer, just ink. They can be mixed with others mediums to get different textures with vibrant colors.

I’ve used Flat Fabios Sprays to create the colourful journal page below.

Art_Journal_Page_by_Solange_Marques_using_Lindy's_Stamp_Gang_Flat_Fabios_Sprays_01

This is how I’ve created my art journal page.

I’ve used Caribbean BlueHibiscus RoseLuscious LimeMango ManiaPineapple Paradise and started by mixing the colours with modeling paste and resin sand.  Then I applied these textures on the butterflies stencil to create the background for my page.

Art_Journal_page_by_Solange_Marques_using_Lindy's_Stamp_Gang_Flat_Fabios_Sprays_02

To make custom embellishments, I spritzed Flat Fabios Spray in the same colors onto white cardstock. After this dried, I created butterflies by using modeling paste and a butterfly stencil.

Art_Journal_page_by_Solange_Marques_using_Lindy's_Stamp_Gang_Flat_Fabios_Sprays_02

Once dry I cut out the butterflies.

Art_Journal_page_by_Solange_Marques_using_Lindy's_Stamp_Gang_Flat_Fabios_Sprays_04

I then added the butterflies, stamps, and stickers on the textured art journal page.

Getting Grungy with The Boys & Natalie

Hi there,  Natalie here sharing a page I created using Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays
from the September Color Challenge set.  This is such a great combination and perfect for a Grungy Masculine Page featuring my husband and my best friend!

12472485_10208870888182175_529457199823034841_n

I decided to use three colors from the set for my page:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are a few simple steps to create this page…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I started with a line using a Black Stabilo pencil then added some Molding Paste with a stencil. Once dry, I started layering my colors, watering down a little as I went and spreading them with a brush.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As it dried, I could see the different layers of color in the paper

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I then added some splatters in all three colors

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Once dry, I added stamping to create more layers and dimension

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I added some mesh tape & old rub ons along my horizon line

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Coloured the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard with a combinations of Green & Blue, added some wood veneers and string and added a tag under my photo

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And finished the page off with a few Imaginarium chevrons

Here are a few detail images of my page.

I have filmed a video to show you how easy it is to create this page…
You can view it on the Lindys Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.

Tips

  • Add water quickly after your spray – before it soaks in so that
    you can spread it around a little
  • Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays soak right into Imaginarium Chipboard because it’s porous, so dry it between coats to ensure you get the color that you are after.

Earthenware Mixed Media Tag

Hi crafters! Djamila here to present you a new idea: Working on a earthenware tag with Lindy’s Starburst and Flat Fabio sprays!

img_5816

I used Gesso to prepare the earthenware tag to receive colors and textures.

img_5815

I sprayed Sandra Dee Sepia Flat Fabio on my chipboard to add color.

img_5818

And I sprayed again with Opal Sea Oats Starburst to give a gold effect (Love it!!)

img_5820

I played with chipboard, cheesecloth, pearls and flowers to add interest to the tag.

img_5819

And completed with Bombshell Black for shadowing

img_5895

Add some half pearls and metal embellishments …
