Hi Lisa here to show you that the wood pieces can be primed and sprayed to match your projects! I decided to mix and match some wood pieces from 3 different collections for my layout. I love the colors of the sea. The blues and greens are just so calming. With just 2 beautiful colors you can create a masterpiece.On this layout I used BoBunny's Glimmer Spray in Frost and Mint.
The background was adhered to a piece of corrugated cardboard. I then used the Brocade Stencil and crackle paste on the background. Once it dried, I sprayed some Glimmer spray in Frost on a piece of plastic bag, then sprayed on a bit of water to water it down and pressed the bag, spay side down onto the background to achieve a watercolor effect. I did this using the Mint as well until I got the coverage I wanted. I also die cut the butterflies from the Flutter dies and sprayed them with Frost and Mint to get a variegated color. Once they were dry, I adhered them to the background by the body only and slightly folded up the wings.
For the blossoms, I enhanced the darker blue ones with Glimmer Spray in Frost. For the lighter blue flowers, I sprayed them with Mint to change the color up a bit. I also die cut some blossoms and leaves from the Double Dot paper in Clove, then I sprayed them with the Frost and Mint
Glimmer sprays for a 2 toned effect. They dry to a gorgeous shimmer.
The wooden pieces were all primed using white acrylic paint. Once they were dry, I sprayed them with Frost and Mint. I arranged all of the pieces on my layout until I was pleased with the design and then I adhered everything down permanently. I used the stamps around the page in random spots, just for texture.
Thank you for joining me today on the blog. I will be back soon when we will be showcasing projects with the newest collections. Until then, get out those wooden pieces and give them some color!!
