Hi lovely crafty friends, today I’m doing another collaboration project with Laurel Beard this time. We are both going to show you Super Cool Ways To Use Distress Oxide Sprays for your paper crafting projects. 

(All supplies are linked to different stores at the end of this post in the thumbnails. The different stores are also linked behind the product name. Among them are affiliate links that may be used at no cost to you)

Distress Oxide Sprays are so versatile and I love them, so I came up with 14+ different ways to use the sprays, with and without spraying and I asked Laurel if she would join me in doing a collab video.

So you will get 14 ways to use the sprays in unusual ways which will give you some cool techniques to get the most out of them. So be sure to watch today’s video to see all techniques in action in the video tutorial.

You can find more video’s with Distress Oxide Sprays on my YouTube channel, there is lots of inspiration to get the most out of this great product.

Colours and Organization

If you are new to Distress Oxide Sprays, want to check out the colours or want to stay organized then you may like the Downloadable Distress Oxide Sprays Colour Charts. 

The charts can be printed and filled with the colours you have so you don’t get them double. And if you want to collect them you can keep track. Here are the Distress Oxide Sprays Colour Charts for you to download.

Another great thing about colour charts is that they are great for inspiration. If you don’t know where to start with a new project or a stuck, try taking a peek at the charts and let yourself be inspired.

Here are the colours up close, so you can check out your favorites. When you are new to the sprays and you are having trouble picking a few colours, then starting with your favorite colour is always a good thing.

The colours you like and use most in your crafting are always a good choice as you will end up using them:-)

For the first techniques the combination Distress Oxides Sprays – Peacock Feathers ( SBC | JGG | RNG ), Cracked Pistachio ( SBC | JGG | RNG ) and Broken China ( SBC | JGG | RNGwere used with plastic wrap to get this cool grunge looking backgrounds.

For the second technique Distress Oxides Spray – Abandoned Coral ( SBC | JGG | RNG ) was used on a simple sprayed background of Squeezed Lemonade ( SBC | JGG | RNG and Rusty Hinge ( SBC | JGG | RNG ).

The salt technique was used with Distress Oxides Spray – Spun Sugar( SBC | JGG | RNG ), Candied Apple( SBC | JGG | RNG ) and Carved Pumpkin( SBC | JGG | RNG )

A super simple ways to get lots of texture with salt water.

A ghost print was made which you can see on the card on the right. After drying a layer of Ranger Ink – Texture Paste – ( SBC | JGG | RNG ) was added with Love For Paws Stencil ( STD )

For the next backgrounds are two techniques combined together, blending and ghosting to get two prints in one take.

These colours were used together, Distress Oxide Spray – Milled Lavender ( JGG | SBC | RNG ), Shaded Lilac( SBC | JGG | RNG ) and Seedless Preserves ( SBC | JGG | RNG

For the glue resist technique I used Tonic Studios – Funky Glue – Craft Tacky Glue ( SBC | TNCUK | TNC ).

And another technique with the strings with another way to colour them as I show in the video. Also the strings were used a second time to make two more backgrounds, so a little bit of string goes a long way:-)
