So to cut out a great deal of umming and aahing over what to make I decided to go all out with sprays and nothing else. Inspired by a great class that Dyan at Art from the Heart ran a while back I decided to make a journal where every part was coloured using sprays.
I used sheets of watercolour paper as the base and sprayed Dylusions inks through a variety of stencils to create colourful pages.
The pages are folded in half and then stuck back to back to create the book. The spine is covered with a piece of sticky backed canvas. The ribbon tie and ric-rac braid are coloured using spray ink too. I nearly always buy white and colour it myself in this way.
Here are pictures of the finished book: Closed...
....and standing open.
