Thank You (straw spray)

If my memory serves me right, I believe Shari Carroll did a tutorial on straw spraying ink on the Simon Says Blog (or could of been Hero Arts).  Sadly - I'm just not 100% sure - but it was a technique I wanted to try and boy - did my lungs get a workout!!!

Using watercolor paper - I used my reinkers (some were Distress Inks and some were Dylusion sprays) and put a small puddle onto the paper.  Then using a straw - I blew air onto the puddle to move the ink around. Some were guided slowly around the paper and some were just sprayed using a blast of air.  I used my heat gun in between each color so they didn't get too muddy.

I really liked this technique.  One change would of been to use WHITE embossing powder instead of clear. Oh - and not making like 12 of these would of been the other change. LOL

Thanks for your visit!

These are neat! I have never seen that technique before but although I am sure I am full of hot air (amongst other things) I think I will leave all of that blowing up to you!
