Art From the Heart 10th Birthday Blog Hop - Dylusions!

Hello!


Welcome to a very exciting blog hop in Celebration of 10 years of Art from the Heart!


Lots of exciting things happening at Art from the Heart next weekend where the big birthday bash is happening. Want to know more?  Then do click HERE to go back to Dyan's blog.

So in Celebration we are having 5 birthday blog hops.  You should have reached my blog from Kirsty Wiseman's blog and you are on the Dylusions Team Hop.

Here is my project.  Click on the picture for a closer look, you can zoom in further after you click.


I started with a 7 Gypsies ATC Printer's Tray, and used Dylusions spray inks (sky blue, lime, grape, amber, and fuschia) to spray watercolor paper and create a wonderfully colorful background, which I then embellished using stencils from Crafter's Workshop, gesso, more spray inks, and perfect pearls mists.

Then I cut the water color background into ATC-size sections, and jumbled them all up in the ATC tray.  Then I went to town with Dylusions stamps and sentiments, painting in the colors using distress stains, Dylusions spray inks, Ranger color wash sprays, perfect pearls, and accenting with a white gel pen (Sakura).
Before you move on - you will need to collect a letter from me which is H.  This is part of an anagram of a Dylusions product.

Once you get back to Dyan's blog please email your answer to Ben.  The deadline to send your email to Ben with the correct answer is Sunday, September 11th at 6:00 pm (UK time), which is 1:00 pm (US Eastern time).

So after leaving me a comment you need to move on to Janet's blog.

Have fun hopping!

Happy Birthday to Dyan and Art From The Heart!
