I decided to be clever and cover the word with a hexagon sticker, so my misting didn't obscure the word, as one of the challenge rules is to show your chosen word on your page.
I misted my pages in chalk and Dylusions mists.
I heat dried the pages between each layer of mist. A handy trick, if you position the heat gun just right, you can lie down and have a sneaky snooze and leave the page to dry itself. NOTE, don't snooze too long, or you may end up with burnt pages!!!
I selected a hexagon mask and sprayed Dylusions London Blue over my page, using both the positive and negative sides of the mask to create two different effects.
Next, as I was in the kitchen, I had a rifle through the snack drawer; having to mist in the kitchen does have its advantages you know!
After 51 small smackerels, I selected another hexagon mask, and the new white Dylusions mist.
I once again used both the negative and positive sides of the mask. When I was finished spraying, I removed the sticker from my chosen word. ARGH, disaster, it had stuck fast, and left a residue that completely obliterated my word!!!!!!!
Not to be beaten, I turned from the French - English to the English - French definitions, and repeated ALL the above steps, including the snackathon.
Next, I took the outline surrounding these stamps
Cut it in half, and stuck directly to my pages. Us bears are developing quite Womblish techniques in our crafting lately!
I then added some of the hexagon stickers, and cut the letters to spell my chosen word with a Sizzix Sizzlits alphabet strip. I assembled all my elements to pawduce this. Don't I look happy to be demoing my creation?
A close up of my page. The whiter hexagons were achieved by rubbing a Papermania square mini white ink pad directly through my mask.
I love this altered dictionary challenge, I hope the bears let me play again next fortnight.
With love from the bears.
