Getting Dylusional

Last night my order arrived from Art From the Heart with the new Dylusions Ink Spray Pads and the new small art journal.  I had ordered them because I had watched these videos.

And here is what I have experimented with today.

I used Lemon Zest, Calypso Teal and Fresh Lime on this pad.

I followed Dyan's instructions and produced these.

I made up another ink pad with Bubblegum Pink, Cherry Pie and Crushed Grape.

I used one of Dina's stencils for this page on the right and cleaned the stencil onto the left hand page.

After lunch I went back to the first colours.  I tore some pages out of the new journal and on this first one I put bubblewrap onto the ink pad and then pressed it to the paper.

I tired different stamps directly into the journal.

With this page I pressed the stamp into the ink pad and then took an imprint off the pad with a piece of acetate and then pressed it onto the page  which gave less of an edge.  I took repeated imprints to put the edges round the page.

I used the alphabet stamp onto a page in the way Dyan did on the video.

I pressed the book onto the ink pad at the top and pressed the ink pad onto the page at the bottom.

For a first try I'm quite pleased with the results.  I think I need to keep practising though.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I love what you've done. I've never tried the inks but the results are gorgeous.

  3. Very interesting results! Love your colors!

  4. Gorgeous. I wonder if this would work with the Tim Holtz blank pads I have? I don't see why not. Will give it a try soon.
