Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Master board step by step with Dylusion Paints

Hi folks, I just thought I would do a quick blog for my page today to show you how I come up with my master boards.  I don't think that there are any hard and fast rules to this and everyone has their different ways of creating.  I have made a step by step in photos to show how I built up the layers on this particular board.



I started off with white linen Dylusions paint and brayered onto my white card.




Using London blue and the brayer I repeated.  It doesn't look much at the moment,  I promise when you add more layers the magic begins!


Brayering again now with white.



A change of colour.  Using after midnight.



Again I brayer over the darker blue to knock it back.



Time for some stencils, using white linen I sponged through the Dylusions stencils.  I like to put my stencils in three different areas but that is dependant on size, style and pattern.



Now for some dots using a Dylusions stencil, I love dots, circles, splodges all shapes and sizes, I love em!



Now I've added in some stripes still working in three areas and placing my stencil in different directions.



See I told you I love circles!  Using my chosen colours placing white over the darker areas and darker shades over the lighter areas.



Coming back with the White, using Tim Holtz splotches stencil.  I broke my rule of three on this I love the effect the rough edged circles create over the darker colours.



Time for some stamping!  Using stamps from the Tim Holtz set 'District Warehouse'  I stamped in blue and white pigment ink.



So there you have it, my master board!  Like I said there are no rules just go with what you feel and watch your piece grow!



Here are a couple of very different makes using this master board.  The details and links to the materials I used are over at A Sprinkle  of imagination.

Happy crafting,

Hugs,
