Free as a Bird: VLVS! March Challenge

Viva Las VegaStamps! has a this month. 
monthly challenge on their blog. I took up the challenge based on their inspiration board for this month.


This is what I came up with for the challenge. 

To make the stripes I used 2 washi tapes and put across the journal. I did burnish the tapes to try and keep the sprays didn't go underneath. I sprayed one side of my Dylusion Journal with water before spraying with Cut Grass and  Fresh lime Dylusion sprays. I did turn the page so the other side could get the colors, but I didn't get enough coverage, so I sprayed water on that side and sprayed the same colors. The sprays did get under one of the tapes, but not too bad.

After it was dried, I took back and white craft paints put a little dabs of each on a paint pallet and sprayed a bunch of water. With a paint brush I made patters and splots. I let that dry as I went out for the day. 

When I came home I used a text stamp with  peeled paint distress ink pad. I then stamped  the triangle banner in mowed lawn distress ink pad. on white cardstock with Black  StazOn  I stamped the Bird in Hat, Sitting Bird, and Sitting bird.  I colored them with Neo color 2's in greens. cut them out and glued them on the page. I then painted in black "free as a bird".
