Life on a wire - Journal Heart Week 15

Good afternoon from a wild and windswept Cheshire!

Sorry this week is late, the BH sure got me all of a confused!!

So without further ado.....

This week is all about using new products. I know I have mentioned this before but anytime I get hold of new stuff I always christen them in a journal so I can get a feel for how they work and interact. 

This page started as a background of my new Dylusion paints. 
I got 6 of my fave colours to play with as I liked the look and potential. Though I have to stay hand on heart though the jury is still out in this craft lab - I love the colours but havent found a magic wow element yet. More playing will be needed...what a shame lol :-)

As is always the case I used new stencils to add layers. The trick with getting the layers to work seamlessly is too use the same colours as in your background..

So I took my largest design stencil and added orange dylusions spray and then my next two stencils were similar sized designs so I added the white gesso contrast and then the turquoise Dylusions Paint again through the new TH tyre tread stencil.

So have a go this week with any new stuff you have ( I am sure after Ally Pally some of you will have something!! ;-) ) and have a go at layering your stencils like here and see what you come up with!! 

Now I am off to do the next two weeks pages - praying they are going to schedule on here as I am off to Canada a week today for 5 days.....

Happy Journalling

Crafty Cheers for now
