Spray Test and Canvas With Cindy Brown

Hi Gang, it’s Cindy here today and I’m testing the four different  Lindy’s Sprays and then using them to create a beautiful custom Lace Canvas .

First I tested the 4 types of Lindy’s Sprays on different papers to see how they look on different backgrounds – black, textured, paper and yupo.

Basic Technique

  1. The first test is on a black paper. I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).   I was surprised that you can actually see all the sprays on black card, though mostly just the shimmer color. little-b-test
  2. The second test is on a watercolor paper or I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).   The colors are bright and true on watercolor paper – they look perfect!

  3. The third test is on a mixed media paper or I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).  Each of the sprays look wonderful on the Mixed Media Paper as well!.  Each of the sprays looks wonderful on the Mixed Media Paper as well!mixed-media-paper-test
  4. The fourth test is on a Yupo paper I used Lindy’s Sprays : STARBURSTS (SHIMMER & INK) – FLAT FABIOS (INK ONLY) – MOON SHADOWS (VINTAGE SHIMMER) – GLITZ SPRITZ (JUST SHIMMER).  The sprays took longer to dry on the Yupo so they ended up with interesting little drying marks and patterns.yupo-paper-test
  5. Here is the final result, the sprays look different depending on the surface you spray them onto – but are always beautiful!

Now it’s time to create a Beautiful Canvas. I used all the same Sprays  that I tested to make my Lace Canvas.

  1. Cover frame with Tape and Washi Tape.

I love playing with Sprays for splatters and texture.

I have filmed a video showing how you can make this, you can watch it below or on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.


Tips

  • I love using Sprays with brushes to create Splatters.
  • You can overlay sprays colors, they blend well and don’t get muddy.
