These are sprandelions.

They are kind of like dandelions, but not.  Or they might be micro-organisms from Mars.  Actually, it is more of my spray experiments, with a can of compressed air at my side.

I know I sound like a broken record, saying the same thing every time - that it's too windy, too rainy to spray outside with enamel paints.  And it is.  I think it was sunny on Saturday for a few hours, but I was working all weekend so that didn't help me.  I'm starting to think I have a better chance of winning the lottery than having a day off when it is perfect spray weather.  When that happens, maybe I can take a Spray-cation!!

However, for someone who has had no luck and no time, I sure am amassing quite a stack of experimental pages!  I am making do with my water based sprays and still having fun. 

I am amazed at the results from these water based sprays, because you never know what you will end up with.  Even when the first color is dry, the second color will bleed into it.  Lots of fun. 

I played with water soluble crayon scribbles and spray inks to see what would happen.  The jury is still out on that one.  It may get sprayed over before it's all over.

I cut up one of my paper plate holders and made this non-circular sunburst stencil (using blue painters tape to make a rectangle).  I see lots of sunbursts in my future!

And least you think I might have turned into some kind of spray-maniac, sitting around in her pj's for days on end, with paint in her hair and on her face, and a dozen dirty coffee cups stacked on the counter, were it not for the fact that I have to go to work every day, that might well be a sad reality!!!  I'm loving what little spray time I can get!  I'll try to find something else to post about soon!!!
