Spritz . . . Drip . . . Splatter Technique

One of my 43 Yahoo Groups (Yes, I know . . . I must be obsessive/compulsive or something!!! Sheesh!! LOL!!!) . . . not all of which I am active, of course, had a second 120-page Technique Swap in February 2009 . . . the first one was AWESOME . . . I received 120 incredible techniques from 119 other mixed media artists!!! I decided to put my technique on my blog to share with others and for clarification to my fellow swappers . . . here's a photo of some of my pages drying in my craft room . . .

I made homemade color spritzers from 1 teaspoon Ranger Adirondack dye re-inkers and added distilled water to fill a 2 oz. spritzer bottle from Wal Mart I purchased for 50 cents each . . . I used a cardboard box to place my cardstock in for spritzing . . . DON'T ASK ME WHY!!!!! (Whadda mess I made!!!!!) Sheesh!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I spritzed the first color sort of horizontally into the cardboard box . . . I held the cardstock vertically to let the color drip . . . then placed it down flat when I was happy with the result . . . let dry . . .

I did the same with the second color . . .

I then made a "mask" by using my die cut machine to cut out a butterfly and lay it on top of my cardstock . . .

I love your technique. Can't wait to receive it in the fat book. Gotta get started on mine, have cut out all the pages, just have to paint them to prep.
