Love to use Sprays

My daughter and her boyfriend have recently moved in together and have just celebrated their first anniversary of being together so I thought I would make them a little house warming gift.

I have had this wall hanging in my stash for a while now - another of those impulse purchases that gets put in a drawer and forgotten about, just  perfect for a gift for them though!





The letters were painted with Brown Shed, no need to gesso with Fresco paints! I made a spray of Snowflake and sprayed the letters through the  Doobadoo bubbles stencil. I made another spray with London Bus and using the same stencil I offset  it over the first spraying and then sprayed with the red. This was a technique I learnt from Lynne Perella on an Artsycraft workshop I did with her.

Offsetting a stencil gives a shadow effect.

The letters were all given a very fine mist of gold spray just to give some shimmer


Each of the letters were decorated with items from my stash.


Treasure gold was applied to all the embellishments and to the edges of the letters.

The crochet flower here was sprayed with London Bus

I really liked the mottled effect created by offsetting the stencil and spraying with two colours. A simple and quick project which I am sure my daughter and her boyfriend will love - no pun intended!

I am entering this in the Paperartsy Sprays Challenge 

Thanks for visiting.
