More spray painted pages

I should be drawing 3/4 faces but I still have the spray paint bug. I didn't have my large post it notes out there so I had a bit of overspray for the black ---but it's ok.

These are 1/4 of a large Bristol sheet (14x17) that I sprayed front and back. Some were better than others.

I have learned that I don't like the gloss paint and I have several cans of it. I think I will just get rid of them. What in the world do you do with cans of spray paint that you want to throw away? I hate to throw them away into the earth. "Hurt not the earth"---(actually that statement in Revelation is not talking to us) but never the less--hurt not the earth anyway.
And I received my Alisa Burke DVD! Have you all discovered Alisa Burke yet? I am loving her funky graffiti chic style of painting.
So, I went out to the red shed and sprayed away. The weather is nice and the mosquitoes aren't out too bad yet so I put on my new mask and sprayed. Most of these have some calligraphy on them and more stenciling and copic spray after I tore them down to see what they needed. I will use them for a journal maybe. It's just fun to make them. It's an exercise in layout and design for each page and making the page work. I probably should be drawing the 3/4 face but that is so hard...I'd rather spray. More tomorrow...

I somehow missed these. I'm loving the spray paint look. Beautiful pages and colors.

wonderful colors on these pages, Martha......where do you get your stencils???....Do you make them??? I have a hard time finding them....I live about 2hrs from any kind of decent shopping so most of my supplies are bought on-line... I have wanted to try this technique and some day I will.....Beautiful work...

Love your spray-painting! I'm interested to know where to find the round stamp in black that looks Mayan in the firstpainting? I have been looking for something like thay. I'm from Mexico and would like to have that type of stamps.

It looks so great now. I also recently found the power of spray paint. I bought a picture frame that was the right size for what I wanted at a really good price.  Sydney Spray Painting
