Hello Beautiful People!
I was watching MaryBeth's video on alcohol inks and stencils, sooooo I had to get mine out - they were calling me. :) In her video MaryBeth reminded me that I had Cathy's book, Pigments of Your Imagination: Creating with Alcohol Inks! I was inspired to break out all my alcohol related tools & inks, and picked out some stencils I thought would make cool patterns. I also got out my notes from the classes I took with Cathy at CREATE Retreats. Click here to see past posts I've done featuring alcohol.
Here's a photo of my desk after I pulled all the supplies out.
Next, I just played with a variety of techniques - starting with some texture...
dripping, swirling, and cling wrap...
the design on the left was made with cling wrap... the one on the right is the wax paper that was underneath the one on the left - I dig them both!
w/stencils... lots of stencils!
cleaned off this stencil in a journal...
after the grounds dried, I added color - love this texture!
In a few days I'll share this one as a completed card - with one of my face drawings.
Saving all these for backgrounds!
