Spraying and Stamping With Dyan

NOTE: As I feared, all the photos appear at the end, out of order and NOT in any way related to the text that describes them. Oh well, you're intelligent so I'm sure you can figure it out. Think of it as a Sunday morning puzzle, LOL.

Yesterday was a GREAT day for art! Heidi and I met up with Pat and Michele at Penn Station and these four city gals boarded the Long Island Railroad for North Babylon. Why, you might ask......well, because the wonderful Dyan Reavley is teaching this weekend at Scrappers Playground. We skipped her 9:00am tag class (so we wouldn't have to leave NYC at dawn), but signed up for the next two classes, both filled with techniques and resulting in two very different books.

Here is our first project, a small chunky book filled with pages we sprayed, inked, painted, and stamped.

The pages we created were interspersed with pages cut from Tim's Kraft Resist paper. As we worked we used leftover sprays, inks, and paints to decorate them (and a bunch of tags as well).

Look at all the tags we did! They will eventually make their way into the book, and maybe, just maybe, I'll even actually do a little journaling in it.

This is what the spine of the book looks like.

And here are the happy artists, Heidi, Pat, Dyan, me, and Michele.

This post is getting longer by the minute, and since I'm still posting from my phone, I can only hope that the photos appear where I want them. If not, maybe you can figure it out. And I'll save our second project for another post.

Good thing I've had my first cuppa ...a puzzle, so early?? LOL. I'm now even more envious of your time with Dyan! And I still want to be you when I grow up!

hello Eileen,

you've been on the top of the hottest classes again !
I've seen Dyan busy in videos on youtube and I'm convinced you learned a lot ànd had a lot of fun in her class !

your photos are not in their place..:) that doesn't bother me, it's just a pity they are quite dark and blurry to see your creations in a good way...

But the most important photo is perfect : you and the gals with Dyan !!

greetings from belgium

Thanks for sharing your project. I am in love with the Dylusions spray inks, stencils and rubber stamps. Love her techniques, which have been shared with YouTube videos from CHA and Ranger. So fun!
