The best product at CHA – Dylusions Paints!

I’m so excited to share with you an amazing new product that will be coming to Scrap Diva Retreats soon! I experienced a fun and excited adventure at the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Convention (CHA) in Anaheim in January and of course fell in love with some new products that I had to bring home and share with you!

Dylusions Paint
Dyan Reaveley’s  new paints are amazing for art journaling and they match her Dylussions sprays which I’m in love with. They are so vibrant! I bought the entire set of 12 gorgeous, vibrant acrylic paints that complement and coordinate with her line of Dylusions Ink Sprays. I also bought some more Dylusions Ink Sprays. The paints are easily blendable, waterproof and dry quickly to a matte finish. You can also write over the top of them. They are perfect for art journalers! You can create beautifully blended backgrounds on paper or other surfaces. They dry quickly which makes it easy to doodle and journal without your pages sticking together.

The colors are so vibrant and they blend perfectly with the Dylusions sprays. Check out this art journal page that I made recently and posted on the blog.
I love Dyan’s bold, vibrant, fun colors and personality!

I also ordered a few extra Dylusions Creative Journals. Which I plan on playing with later this year as I work on my documented life project. You can also join the Documented Life Project for free so check out the link.

The next time you visit Scrap Diva Retreats make sure to check out the new paints!
Also…. I plan on announcing two more day crops this year! So be sure to join our Meetup group so that you are first to get the notification of the crops.
Have a fabulous scraptacular day!

 

 

 

Art Journal Page – Week 3 Documented Life Project

The theme for January is – The blank page and how to face it!

Week 3 – DLP January 17th, 2015
Art Challenge: The Color Wheel


Journal Prompt:

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way . . .

– Georgia O’Keeffe

This prompt was so much fun for me because I LOVE LOVE LOVE COLORS!!! Of course I had a billion more things planned that I didn’t finish because I was playing in my art journal all weekend with colors! My favorite colors are Dylusions ink sprays.

To get started with the prompt I first played with the warm colors…
Warm Colors

I had fun stamping Dina Wakley’s new stamp set on the background.

Then I played around with cool colors….

Cool Colors

I made so many swatches of color that I decided to create a rainbow of colors separating the warm colors from the cool colors. I just recently learned why it’s not good to mix warm and cool colors at the same time… Because they make mud! You might already know this color concept but if this is new to you…. it’s an awesome revelation! Especially if you are like me and love colors!

Color Swatches

Then I decided that I better get down to business and finish my art journal page with the quote so I grabbed one of my favorite stencils, Dyan’s new star stencil and some of the new Dylusions paints.
