Dylusion Fun

Like all scrapbookers, card markers or mixed media artists I am addicted to supplies and what better way to have up to date and a variety of products at my finger tips than belonging to the Frosted Designs Design Team.

My favourite products to use at the moment would have to be the Dylusion Inks. It means getting messy and running around with ink staining my hands for a couple of days afterwards but I don't mind, that is the enjoyment of creating.

In this layout I have used 6x6 Echo Park Beautiful Life Paper Pad, Heidi Swap Stencil - Butterflies, Prima Flowers - Paquita, Um Wow - Dream A Little Dream Flairs and Dylusion Inks Sprays - Funky Fuscia and Calypso Teal and American Crafts Cardstock - White

I love the effect of spraying two or more inks over the top of each other (in this case only 2) and the effects you get when laying the stencil over the top and lightly spraying with water. I also coloured the little aqua roses with dylusions and water.

A close up of the gorgeous Prima flower, they have so much texture.

It was easy to add a title to my layout with the UmWow flair. My daughter is a dreamer at times and this flair was just perfect.  is where you can find the products listed above.

Thank you for visiting and happy creating
