Don't you love it when you make a project that has a mind of it's own?
This is one of those projects.
- 8x10 Canvas Board-Primed
- Yasutomo Niji Splash Ink
- Yasutomo Nori Paste
- Yasutomo Gel Extreme Pens
- Yasutomo Permawriter Marker Fine Black
- Assorted Flowers, Burlap, Gauze, Ribbon and Pearls
Gather your supplies. Fill 1 mister with Yellow Splash Ink, 1 mister with Blue Splash Ink and mix Splash Ink to make 1 mister of Red Ink. You only need these 3 colors for this project.
Draw a winding area on your canvas, lightly, with a pencil. Make light marks to show where the next color will start. With just those 3 inks, we will make a smooth transition of all colors.
I didn't have every color of flowers so I made some from paper and mostly used white flowers. I had a lot of yellow and green flowers for some reason. Place your first color of flowers, and your last color of flowers on the canvas, using Nori Paste. Let me tell you, if you want something to stick forever THIS is what you want to use!! Just brush it on, apply flowers, gauze, etc. and in a short time it is stuck!!
This is the layout. Fill in the rest of the canvas with flowers, gauze, burlap and pearls.
We will start spraying the yellow Splash over the yellow flowers and the canvas. From top to bottom. Go a little over onto the next flowers and canvas. Then spray red Splash over the yellow (to make orange) and on the red area of flowers and canvas. Go a little over onto the next flowers and canvas. Spray the blue Splash Ink over the red (to get purple) and onto the blue flower and canvas area. Go all over the blue and green areas with the blue, then go over the green area with yellow Splash Ink. You have made a beautiful rainbow!!
Use your markers to write the words, and outline them with black. Add ribbon pieces last and a few more pearls. I couldn't help myself, I had to spray glitter on it too! And add wire spirals. I told you it had a mind of it's own!!
Because we sprayed the ink, we have a beautiful gradient of color! Some of the white of the canvas and flowers is still showing which just adds more emphasis to the colors
Go color YOUR world!!
