Paint spraying is a little bit different than spray painting. My paint spraying was inspired by Donna Downey who uses the little plastic spray bottles to spritz paint onto her pages. I've filled mine with half water and half paint, or you can even make a smaller batch by using 1/4 of the bottle each with paint and water, and then just shaking them up when I want to use them.
I bought these in the travel section at the store for less than a dollar apiece. They're just the thing for a burst of color on this gloomy, rainy day.
These are simple 5 inch french doilies from Cash and Carry. I put them on a 12x12 scrapbook paper so I can use the sprayed paper once they're done.
Here's the paper with the doilies off. The photo's a bit out of focus, but I think it will do nicely for a future project.
I spritzed the pages of my journal with white, aqua, and orange paint. I tested them on scrap paper first, since you can see that each of the nozzles has a different spray pattern. Then I butted up a piece of scrap paper to the edges of the book so I wouldn't get any overspray on the cover.
I flipped the doilies over to show just a tinge of the aqua instead of the saturated side. I like that look.
I finished off the page with a quote printed on regular printer paper and cut into strips, then edged with a little ink. The circles are chipboard covered with patterned paper. I just wanted a pop of orange, and decided on something bigger than buttons.
Then I used the stencil as a guide for a little bit of journaling. Again, no doodling and nothing crazy, just a quick page to continue on my One Little Word journey.
