Colorations Spray with a Heat-Embossed Resist!


Hey everyone!  Suzanne here today to share a very simple layout that features  Colorations Spray being used as watercolor!  I know I have not recreated the wheel here, but that’s because this technique will never get old!   It’s by far the easiest and quickest way to add color to any scrapbook page!

I started with a piece of watercolor paper; if you’re using regular cardstock, I suggest priming the page with gesso first.  First, I stamped a starry night image using embossing ink; I heat embossed the image after applying embossing powder over the ink.  Once the image has completely dried and cooled, I very simply sprayed some Colorations Spray  in “Sky” onto a piece of waste plastic and “smooshed” the color onto the stamped background.  I wanted to keep the background subtle, so I sprayed a little water onto the background to keep the color light.  I repeat this this until I’m happy with the coverage-and that completes the background!

While the background dried, I grabbed some wood chip stars and applied a coat of Velvet Dimensional Paint in “Cotton” and a coat of “Glass” Sorbet to add some high-shine glimmer!  Here are some close-ups!
