Valentine’s Printable {Plus DIY Tutorial For Making Your Own}

You guys are in for a treat today.
Johnnie has something really special to share with you.. I know you’re going to love it!
Hi Fox Hollow Cottage readers!
I’m excited to be invited to share with you here today, so lets get to it. I have been playing with Dylusions spray inks lately, and am in love. Why? Because you can create gorgeous art with the spray of a bottle. Using a background I created in about 1 minute with this dye, I made you a love verse printable to download and frame. Want to make your own? Scroll down for the video and get creating.

Maybe you wish it were a different color, or had a specific saying. That is why I am going to show you how to create your own vibrant, watercolor background using spray inks, and how to get your custom text/designs on there.


Dylusions spray ink (Bubble Gum pink and Post Box red used here)
Watercolor paper
Water spritzer
Paper towels
Stencils of your choice (I used hearts to go with my love theme)
Hair dryer or heat tool
Transfer paper, design to transfer, and pencil
(or just pencil if you want to freehand your design)
Micron artist pen in black or other permanent black pen (size 03 used here)

Here is a quick video showing you the simple process:

If you scan the background, the editing possibilities are unending. Use it as the base for subway art with my DIY subway art tutorial.
Change the hues, add text and images, digital scrapbooking, even use it as your blog background. Here is an example of a Dylusions background that I hand stamped, scanned, and altered the color of the butterfly:
Digital scrapbooking, dylusions ink background, art journaling
I hope you had fun and are inspired to create.
 Thanks for having me over, Shannon!
