2015 #8 Spray Tags {by Anneke De Clerck}

2015 Theme 8: Sprays

Hi everyone Anneke here, joining you this evening with a post about paint sprays. 

I made my own sprays with two of my favorite PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics. I never made paint sprays before so I had no idea where this would lead me but I have to say I'm happy with the result!

I made a tag book from size 8 tags and attached the pages with a strip of linen fabric.



I started with cutting 8 tags out of watercolor paper. I made paint sprays with Fresco Finish Paint Caribbean Sea and Limelight. See Leandra's video on how to make your own paint sprays. Immediately after spraying I've put the tags vertically to let the paint drip.


Spraying with watered down paint creates beautiful drips on the watercolor paper. As you can see I kept a few areas white on each tag.


After drying I randomly sponged squares with Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon, Dina Wakley Media Paint 'Lime' and a stencil (Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Harlequin).


I overstamped all of the tags with EclecTica  EDY 05,  EDY 11EDY 12 stamps and Fresco Finish Paint Caribbean Sea and Limelight
I always use my fingers to load paint on a stamp. This way I'm sure to have the right amount of paint on the stamp.


I made pink dots with a stencil (Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Burlap) and Fresco Finish Candy Floss


I'm fond of stamping with unusual stuff. Here I used the lid of my bottle of Tacky Glue in combination with Fresco Finish Bougainvillea


I stamped directly on four of the tags (front pages) with EclecTica  EDY 05EDY 09

EDY 10EDY 11 stamps and Archival Ink Jet Black.



I colored the flowers with a white pencil and a white Sharpie pen.


I painted a page from a vintage book with Fresco Finish Snowflake and punched circles out of it. I glued the circles on the tags and colored them with Fresco Finish Caribbean Sea and Limelight. I painted tissue paper with Fresco Finish Bougainvillea and added torn strips to the tags. 


I layered the tags two by two and sandwiched a strip of linen fabric in between. As the tag on the right ends up as the cover of the book, I've stamped the text from the EDY 11 set in full on it.





For this tag book I had a lot of stamping in mind so I wanted a discrete, soft and smooth background. The spraying and dripping technique with the watered down Fresco Paints was the ideal base!  I hope you will give this technique a try. I would love to see your takes!

Have fun!
