How Do You Do… Ink Splatters

After a half a dozen tries I’ve finally got a video up showing how I make my ink/mist splatters.  Yikes.  Making videos is way harder than it looks!  This is the layout I made for the video…

Before you press play please note the following…

1.  I am a dork.  Case in point… these are the glasses I’m currently looking at getting.  Oh yes!

2. My voice sounds nothing like I think I sound like in my head!

3. I ramble.

Okay.  That’s it.  Here you go.


  • Ursula - Great video Marcy. I get you on hearing ones own voice recorded,but trust me, your voice is just fine! I mist in a very similar manner, well, sometimes I use the sprayer also, but I do what you do as well. Love the big splotches that you get that way.ReplyCancel

  • Allison Waken - 1. You are adorable
    2. love this video
    3. LOVE this pageReplyCancel

  • Alexa - I have glasses like those, so I guess we are both dorks! That’s how I mist too. And my voice never sounds like it does in my head on video either.ReplyCancel

  • Carla Grace - Marcy you are the drip drop QUEEN!! I would have never guessed spray paint!! Masterful and I can’t wait to try it out!! Thanks so much for taping the process for us!!ReplyCancel

  • rhonda - Thanks for this video Marcy! I greatly admire your work and I will be adding spray paint to my projects for sure!ReplyCancel

  • Rockermorsan - Thank you for this tutorial! We were just discussing how to make those splatters so perfect over at Magda’s scrapbooking. We have the lift of your “In the middle” layout up on our blog today The writing is in Swedish but the picture’s are not ;D

    PS: Love the glasses! I have almost the same ones…

    • Marcy - For sure! The layouts are amazing! You ladies did a great job.ReplyCancel

  • Rebecca - This is great – thank you! Before you put your photos down seems like the most logical way to do it, to me, but I’ve seen so many people try to mask all that off and then splatter. Seems backwards to me – your method makes much more sense! Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer Shaw - Thanks Marcy! I love the way you splatter and this really helps. I really want to add this element to my LO’s. The glasses look terrific. They are so very in style now. Not dorkie at all. :)ReplyCancel

  • Sherry Cartwright - Oh my goodness, I had no idea that you used black spray paint! If I did that I am sure it would freak out the hubs. But, man, I just might have to try it [the spray paint, not freaking out the hubs]. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for the tutorial.ReplyCancel
