Make Your Colors Sing – Dylusions & Derwent ArtBars Tutorial

Give me new paint media and I vanish into my studio going crazy – I just can’t help it!

Recently I purchased some awesome Dylusions Ink Sprays – and somehow some Dylusions Stencils and Stamps also fell into that basket…ooops ;) Love the products! As you know I have been playing with spray paints for many years ….and so getting some new spray paints makes me just giddy with excitement to try them with all kinds of other media and find fun new techniques. Well….so it was only a matter of time, that after I figured out the scoop about those spray inks and how they react, to try them with Derwent ArtBars (if you missed my post about them – here you go)…another awesome new paint media in my possession. OHHHH MMMMYYYY DEAR!!!!

Dylusions Ink Sprays and the Derwent ArtBars are amazing each by themselves but put together….they make the colors SING :) A complete Supply List of what I used can be found below

Here is the finished page

What have you played with (art product)  recently?

    That is awesome! What a great idea to press the paper into the stencil after you spray it. Two for one! Very cool. Can’t wait to play with the delusions stuff.

    Amazing page!! Isn’t Dylusions fun to work with?
    I just loved how you “tapped” the birds into the page with inks and stencil – soooo cooool! Have to try.
    Also loved how you colored the birds, the foam stamp, water and the ArtBars. Looks too me that those are “must have” LOL (as most of the things you use :D)

    Thanks for sharing your procedure, it looks just fabolous!
