How To Use The New Spray Pen!

How many of you noticed the new Wings Workshop On The Go contains a new tool?  There is a small spray pen included with each of these Workshop Kits... but here's the secret...

You need to contact your Close To My Heart consultant to know how to use it!  Ah, so tell your friends I'm here to come to your rescue and please share my blog with them so they can follow me for more fun ideas. LOL!

 Here's a great video tutorial for you from our CTMH art department... read below for the directions written down!

Here's a basic guide to using our spray pen - unscrew the top nozzle portion first:
  • Mix 4 drops of acrylic paint or pearl paint, 6 pea-sized drops of re-inker, and then fill with water to the 9th line from the bottom of the spray pen.
  • When spraying a layout or piece of paper with the spray pen, be sure to spray over the sink or protected background since the pen tends to spray out beyond your project.
  • Remember to attach photos after the spray has dried.
  • Immediately after using pen, remove nozzle and immerse in warm water.  Spray until clear.
  • Tip:  You can probably figure this out, but I thought I should mention that you can experiment with the amount of re-inker you would like for a lighter or darker colored paint.  It also helps to just practice how the spray will work with scraps of cardstock so you get your desired effect!
