Using masks is one technique that is easy to do. you don't even need any special masks, you can use things you already have on hand. In today's example, we're going to use leftover letter stickers!
Start with some canvas shapes like these butterflies from Maya Road ( it would look great on these buttons too!).
Add a base of colours of your choice. Here I'm using Glimmer Mists by Tattered Angels.
I blot the excess with a rag, and then dry with a heatgun. You will achieve different effects depending how damp or dry your piece is before the next step.
On this slightly damp piece, I randomly placed letter stickers. they don't always stay completely stuck down, which allows they next colour to blend or bleed more into the damp one beneath.
Here's the result after misting with a Sapphire Glimmer Mist:
Letters on a dry shape, placed closer together:
Have fun experimenting with different shades, and letter placements, the possibilities are endless!
