5 Techniques With Dylusions

It's time for another Friday Focus at Frilly & Funkie, and I am presenting it to you, but a little differently. Okay....a lot differently...via video! It's my very first, so please bear with me, and let me tell you that it was no easy feat, hence the lack of blog posts this week. It's quite lengthy at just over 15 minutes, but I am showing you five techniques using Dyan Reaveley's Dylusion Ink Sprays, so grab a cookie and sip some tea. ***Note to self: Unplug the phone when you are videoing a craft technique!!!

These are the two tags I finished that I sopped up all the ink with. They are perfect to tie onto a birthday present.

  3. Where to start?! It's so nice to put a voice to the face! I'm so glad you are embracing your Dylusional side! Now I wanna see some of the ladies! I actually learned a few things from you, so I'm glad you did the video. I didn't think I *needed* the black spray ink, but now I do!! Please don't make this your last video. And I was more surprised with the Christmas music towards the end than the ringing of the phone!!

  5. Wow Anita, not only did you make an awesome video, but you included so many techniques too! I found them all useful and the 'bleach' technique is almost magical, it's so effective. You have a beautiful voice, I would love a video on how you make the backgrounds for your tags using distress inks. No one does backgrounds as well as you!!

  6. Anita! You did a GREAT job on that video, I can't believe it was your first one. I loved the bleach technique, that is amazing. Just out of curiosity....what type of white pen do you use? I find that the Dylusion sprays bleed through my white pen work so it ends up being anything but white. I will be looking forward to any future videos/tutorials that you do. Thanks.
