I broke down yesterday and bought a Tulip Paint Cannon. I already had some of the graffiti stencils, which I love, so I thought it would be cool to turn my acrylics into spray paint.
Well, there must be some secret formula that I don't know about. Seems like I don't get a nice mist/spray, but rather a stream. I'm a little frustrated, but I plan to press on and try differen't mixtures. Here are a few pages I "created", hehe
And finally, this mess:
This last page I was a little sad about, the paint was so thick it covered all the wonderful things going on in the background. I did use the end of a paint brush to scrape into it a bit. Since this picture was taken I have been working more on the page, and am happy with it. I will post the finished pages to all of these soon. If anyone out there knows something I don't about this, please share! :)
ETA: I have watched the Pam Carriker videos, but so far she hasn't given any hints about paint mixtures.
I wanted to send a special shout out to a friend... her art inspires me daily!
And yes, that is Simon underneath that wonderful post card. I think he was eight there. I use post it's for title/prompt ideas.
I also finished this page tonight (among others that I will be blogging about in a few days):
Thanks again for all the love and support you've given me. For those who've asked, I will be in Art Journaling Magazine this July. I hope I wasn't supposed to keep it secret. Yikes!
Much LOVE xoxo
