I used the new Dylusions paints
These paints are AMAZING! I heard Dyan was releasing paints and thought yeah whatever. I then saw her demo them at CHA via youtube and was intrigued but still like ok it's paint. She describes them as different from regular craft paint and they dry fast.
WELL I got them all, 12 of course and using a small round foam dauber (the Ranger ones) I covered the background of one of the pages in a grid format like she showed in her video. First of all it dried FAST! Secondly, it DOES NOT feel like paint! I kid you not! You know how when you use crafty paints from Michael's and you rub your hand over the dried page it's gritty, or chalky? You can feel it? It's weird right? THIS paint didn't feel like that AT ALL! It was smooth and it feels like the paper not paint! Hard to explain but you should try them!
Here is what I made using Unity Stamps:
I used yellow and orange with a baby wipe for the background color, nothing fancy. I then used a Dylusions stencil in the background along with lots of Unity Stamps. The image that looks like writing in the background is Unity's She Script by Christy Tomlinson.
I used some of the paint and watercolor to fill this in.
I never used glue sticks. But I saw Dyan use them in videos and thought what the heck it's less messy then the gel mediums I use. This glue stick is awesome. I've only used it in this journal over the paints and inks and not in other journals where I used a lot of other mediums so I don't know how it holds up there.
Stamps and paper used
I'm excited to be taking a class with Dyan this week! Can't wait to learn her techniques and it's all centered around her new paints!
Thanks for stopping by!!
