Not sure what we were talking about when this was taken!! Answers on a postcard please. lol
Got the alcohol ink article bundled up and posted off for photography. I love playing with them because you can get such beautiful varied results all the time. These are the scraps that are left.
And these are the remnants of Tim's idea-ology range. Whoops, where did it all go? lol
After all the alcohol ink samples I am desperate to get back to my paints. Even if I have nothing planned I will happily spend hours making backgrounds. Because I teach paint effects so much I am always inundated with backgrounds and I find this a really useful idea of using them all up. I make them into inspiration cards. You might use them as scrap booking prompts , I use them for my journalling. And they make fab pressies presented in a matching tin. They are really simple. Cut them up, round the corners,doodle, add prompts and cover the backs in papers. Ink all edges - goes without saying!! Gorgeous and all from practise sheets. mine are really simple but you could add more journalling,painting or collaging . Whatever you fancy. Start by making your own set and you will soon become addicted. these are all painted with my trusty Adirondack paint dabbers, a gorgeous matt finish that is just perfect for writing and drawing on.
Here are mine in their own holder. It holds all 42 . If they bring any more out I,lol have to invent a bigger one eh?? I love them when you see them like this. I know you all think I have an addiction to stroking my stash, but I cant help it. I also have a full set at home and am often found painting in my bed. ( Love the dabbers for this- no mess)!!
Thought I would post some pages from my old art journals over the next few days and tell you more about the art journal workshops. So till then!
