Layout Title: "Bike + Puddle = Splashin' Good Fun"Wanted to share the fun technique used on this layout -didn't have time to do it in the earlier post. (this one's for you Peggy) Here goes:
The 'splats' in the background (there's actually one big green/blue one and 3 smaller black/silver ones) were made using transparencies, alcohol inks / maya mist, a drinking straw and good old human lung power.
1. Drip various coloured alcohol inks on transparency (I used black and silver)
2. Add a bit of blending solution, then blow in the centre with your straw. (remember doing this in school as a kid?)3. Give a good hard puff if you want those nice skinny streaks. cut to shape to use on layoutI used Maya mist for the large splat 'cos its wetter and so will move around a lot more (less puffing!!!). But it took forever to dry....so I got impatient and just cut it out while wet (dirtying my hands in the process - *tsk* typical sharon) then stapled it wet side down onto the layout - and woo hoo, it actually turned out nice cos the splat changed a bit as it smooshed on the paper.
Really happy with how this layout turned out....and best of all, I had fun.
p.s. if you ask the Auntie at Burger King very nicely, she lets you have as many straws as you like from the dispenser..... just tell her the girl who always buys a bacon crossaintwich with large barley sent you....haha.
