Dylusion’s Spray Ink Pad Rocks!

Video tutorial with Dylusions new Spray Ink Pad to make a quick art journal page with rubber stamps and stencils by Carolyn Dube

Video tutorial with Dylusions new Spray Ink Pad to make a quick art journal page with rubber stamps and stencils by Carolyn DubeThe new Spray Ink Pad is heavenly!  Absolutely heavenly!  Dyan Reaveley has done it again.  Since it comes uninked that means I could add whatever colors of Dylusion’s spray inks I wanted.  I had a blast playing and I’ve got a quick video today showing how I inked it up, ways I used it, and there’s even an Oops in there that ended up being my favorite!


Hand signed by Dyan Reaveley


I recently had the chance to see Dyan demo so I couldn’t resist the chance to have her sign my hand since my hands are frequently covered in spray inks!  She is an absolute riot demoing!


You can watch this on YouTube at: Dylusions Spray Ink Pad

Here’s the quick background I did in the 5 x8 Dylusion’s journal.  I usually work in larger journals but I am getting hooked on this size- it is so quick to do a page!

Here’s the finished art journal spread from the video.  It was so fast and easy with Dina Wakely’s text stamp and Michelle Ward’s stencil from StencilGirl.  The words are from Tim Holtz’s Chit Chat word stickers & Ranger has a waterbrush.

Thanks Dyan for making such a versatile tool that makes me love my spray inks even more!!

    Great Video! I was lucky enough to take some classes with Dy in Texas last month. What a joy she is! In fact just received my pads in the mail today. I bought the small journal also and find I love putting my daily collection of ephemera that I can’t toss in it.

  • Von Reeder August 15, 2013, 7:28 pm

    Thank you for the great ideas and presentation of the new Dylusions Ink Pads. I’d seen them through Dyan’s FB promo but this is the first I’ve seen them used like this. Fantastic!

    I love to watch your videos Carolyn…
    it is great I think….

    I am sorry – I have to do watercolor stamp technique to get this look with my neocolore II crayoins or with watersoluble markes .. because we in Austria have to wait long time before our shops have the new products available….
