Make your own Ink Sprays with Inktense Blocks – July 2014

Today I’m sharing how to make your own Ink Sprays using Inktense Blocks and an art journal page I made using my own homemade sprays!

To start, you will need: Inktense Blocks, Grate ‘n’ Shake, water and some Spritzer Bottles



Start by grating an Inktense Block into the Grate ‘n’ Shake, the amount will depend on the intensity of colour that you want for your spray (you can always add more colour to it later if the colour isn’t strong enough).



Roll a scrap of paper into a cone and use it to funnel the powder into the Spritzer bottle, add some water to the bottle (put the lid on!) and shake to mix.



You can also grate two blocks into a Spritzer bottle to mix different colours!



You can then use your custom Ink Sprays on all of your craft projects (even fabric, as I accidently found out by not checking which way round the nozzle was and spraying my top!) I used mine to create this Art Journaling page…



I used a Doodle Doll stamp, a chipboard heart, a stencil with opaque white spray and added some doodling and Dymo label text. Here are a couple of close ups…



I hope you’ll have a go at making your own ink sprays with Inktense Blocks. If you’d like to share your projects over on the Derwent Facebook page we’d love to see them! I’ll be back soon with another project.
