I played in my craft room last night and learned a few lessons. I had read that you could make your own alcohol sprays by mixing Kool-Aid with rubbing alcohol so I thought why not. Off to the store I went. Kool-Aid was only .20 per pack and the rubbing alcohol and spray bottle were $1 each. Yay! So far, so good. Once I got home mixed the concoction together and tried it out. Well, it smelled okay but...kind of clogged the sprayer. No worries, I wanted to do a drip technique anyway. Did that but noticed that the alcohol and Kool-Aid gums together and forms clumps. Yuck! I may try a few other homemade recipes but this one is out of here! LOL!
Thank goodness I had other store bought sprays so I could finish my layout. Once I had the background sprayed and textured with modeling paste and a stencil, I decided to practice a face. I like her although I don't know now if I went too far by adding more black to her irises. The first image is before and the last is after. Which do you like best?
