The New Year started really early for me as for some reason sleep eluded me, so I started taking down the Christmas decorations. My plan was to have everything cleaned up so that I could play in the afternoon. I had invited a friend and fellow crafter, Jane, over to play with Alcohol inks. Now, I'd like to try making my own alcohol inks using the SU reinkers, I just haven't had the time to figure out the formula. If there is any one out there who has done this please contact me.
Well, I got everything cleaned up, thanks to my son Andy who was such a big help. Then I was so tired I had to have a little nap. Then, play time.
The first thing Jane and I did was experiment with a technique of blowing the ink with a straw on a piece of photo paper. It was quite fun actually. Here are our results:
Here is one of the embellishments:
We then progressed to tiles and again, we just played and had fun experimenting with colours, movement of the ink etc.
I should mention that these are the small 4 1/4 by 4 1/4" tiles.
Well, it was fun to play, but now back to work.
