Playing with spray

This is me trying out my new bottles of dylusions spray from Ranger—bought at Hobby Lobby for 40% off course! They come in packs of two. I bought one pack: fresh lime and vibrant turquoise. After spraying the page I decided to try collaging a napkin with this winged girl on it. Of course the napkin is transparent when wet with the Golden Matte Medium so I tried gluing a piece of the white backing down first. It helped but still too much green was showing through and you couldn't see her very well, so I outlined her with a sepia Micron pen and then painted her. That was actually fun. :) Then I added collage bits and stamping—just playing around. I stamped the music notes in black then thought they were too dark so I sanded it a little bit (which lightened it some) then sprayed some homemade gold glimmer mist on it (you can't see the sparkly gold in the picture). As is my luck, the glimmer spray came out in kind of glob. The results aren't great but I find that I don't really care when it's just an experiment trying out new products. :) It's awfully green isn't it? It looks better enlarged for clearer detail though.
