Luscious leaves...

At art journaling class today we were playing around with my bleach out technique and I rummaged in the pile of Tim Holtz's new releases from CHA. Some of my favourites are the blueprint designs that were drawn By Mario Junior. Tim made sure that I had the ones I wanted, so I could play with them. One of the designs that I skimmed over and declined to take was the blueprint leaves. It just didn't float my boat, until today.....

 
I picked it out to use because I thought it would really suit my bleach out technique, but now I am hooked on it. Here are the 2 pages I made.








Just shows you should never discount something on first appearances, lol.

If you haven't seen it yet, here is the video of the aforementioned bleach out technique.



Enjoy xx

Ryan your work is great and your Xmas stamps are a real giggle . I have a serious question have you any plans on bring out a binder for your stamps I wrote to Tim and he said to ask you . It sure would be nice to have a binder with two holes and I could carry my stamps to crops etc. I know you are a busy lady it must be a English way of storing things as Tim didn't understand why the holes are on top and only two. I think we were both scratching our heads over it. Otherwise I just love everything and you have just opened up my world. From the old pesky lady in Langley BC with fondest regards

Have just recently come across your Dylusions Inks...watched a ton of your videos and was hooked. The next day I picked up 6 bottles of your inks and have been playing and experimenting with them ever since....oh if only I didn't have to work during the day LOL! Love this bleaching technique...so easy and it looks amazing...I notice you have UK and USA classes...any chance you have any scheduled for Ontario, Canada?
