Wow, I can’t believe another month has gone by so quickly… and here we are again, with my turn for a blog post!
This month I have been playing with the Maya Road Resist. If you love the mists, you really must have a go with the resist. It has a super fine applicator so you can be really precise applying the resist, and unlike the resist medium I used in Art collage, it has a wire in the lid to prevent the applicator from blocking up when not in use.
After the resist dried (about 10 minutes depending on how fine you have used it). I hand cut a couple of butterflies to use as masks, and placed them where I wanted them, before spraying with cream and yellow mists.
I also used the paper the butterflies were cut from as a stencil to spray over, using orange.
I know it wouldn’t do for a lot of people, but I really like seeing the straight lines created by misting along the edge of a piece of paper… in this case the butterfly stencil. I used the same technique to add some teal stripes to the top of the LO, using more butterflies as masks.
I love how easy it is to write using the resist, and used the same technique for my title on my next LO. I used this Pink Paislee paper as my background, and wrote the title going round the corner in my best joined up handwriti
ng. I used a punched circle and a wood star as masks, to create the fun detail over the top of a Sassafrass cloud sticker. I like playing with layers of mist, to add interest to LOs, it’s fun and very random, and you can create some beautiful results… why don’t you have a go and share your work with us, by leaving a link in the comments box.
