Finally! A break in the rain and I could go out and spray! I have wet knees from kneeling in the grass, and *nozzle finger* from months of being out of practice. Oh, I missed you spray paint.
I am really bad about trying to blot off my stencils. In fact, I'd rather keep working and let the layers of paint accummulate, then monoprint with it or chip it off later. As I was waiting for a perfect spray-day I took on the task of cleaning up. I carefully rolled the stencils and all the paint cracked and worked loose...some were almost to the point of being clean again (until I put them to work again today!)
My sweet friend Cindi commissioned a sprayed suitcase. I was going to keep the final look a surprise but she asked to see it. So here it is darling ;) It's on the way to you, and can be packed up in time to visit NY for the last leg of the you-know-what tour. xo
I really thought I would use red on this. But I like the look of it without - kinda tapestry-ish with some spider webs and heartagrams. Makes you look twice. NOTE: if you try this at home you definitely want to get a spray varnish. I freaked out that the spray paint remained slightly tacky (as in sticky) but once I coated with the finish it was perfect!
