Splatter Techniques -

Splatters can be made in a number of ways. Here are just a few of my favorites.
Stamped splatters with Gelatos -

Color a Wildflowers stamp with Gelatos.

Spritz with water and stamp onto mixed media paper.

Allow the panel to dry completely before adding stamped Wildflowers images. Add even more splatters with a dusting of Lamp Black Color Burst powders and then spritz with water.

Splatters with acrylic paint -

I first learned this fun technique during a 2010 Retreat workshop taught by Michael Strong.

Choose three colors of acrylic paint. Paint large random strips of color onto a 12x12" white paper.

Lay the paper inside a deep sided cardboard box and splatter with dark brown paint. Allow the paper to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Create a set of cards following Tricia's Bonus Card Formula and embellish with Daffodils hybrid digital printed elements. I chose to pair the painted paper with Daffodils Brown and Green 12x12" papers.

Cut these papers according to the instructions and assemble.

Let's take a look at the finished set of cards.
