Yayy I can now spill some of the beans about one of my new ventures....!! We have developed a new range of products, under the name Altered Originals. I made them with Art Journaling in mind but the can be used for soooooooooooooooooooooooo much more. The first products were the downloads HERE which you all know about. And I have just taken delivery of the 2nd. Any ideas..???
Is this any easier...??
Or maybe this...???
Oh yes..you got it. These are the first 8 of the new spray inks I have been developing. Yes, I did say first 8...!!!! There are more of the little beauties in the pipe line. So what are they..??
They are a range of waterbased dye inks which come in 8 vibrant colours available in a 50ml spray bottle.Inks can be sprayed directly from the bottle for beautiful backgrounds or decanted into our smaller spritzers. Add a little Blonde Moments Pearl Powders with them for a soft shimmer effect. Their translucent qualities make them ideal for layering and applying with a brush for a watercolour effect.
Ideal for - Spraying, Stenciling, Blending backgrounds, Layering, Masking, Painting and whereever your creativity may lead you...!!
I have always loved the Adirondack colour washes by Ranger, but , you know me, I wanted brighter, bolder, more vibrant colours. And so thats what I did. I will still be using my Adirondack colourwashes alongside mine, so no need to panic....I am just filling in what I feel are the gaps in the market, lol.
I will be getting some how-to's, some step by steps and hopefully some video footage of how they work and what you can do with them asap. Promise..!!!
All I can say at the moment is, yes you've guessed it...
"I just Frikkin love them...!!!"
Heres the rundown of colours, one by one...
Gorgeous aren,t they...??
They are on the website HERE, but you won,t be able to order them till Monday.
To celebrate their launch I will be giving away a full set today.All you have to do is leave me a comment on which you think may be your favourite colour and why. If you are anything like me it will alter all the time, lol.
