Oooooooo! Day 5 was so much fun. I really did not realize how versatile alcohol inks are. Also ... I must admit that I looked at some of Tim's technique tags and videos before trying my own and said to myself "I can't do this! I'm going to make an ugly mess of this." And I must admit, when you first start off with some of these techniques ... it does look a bit of a disaster. But keep at it. You get the feel for these techniques pretty fast. You may have to use up some paper to get there ... but you can do this. I love these techniques!! So ... on to Day 5!
Alcohol Ink Stamped Resist on Yupo Technique -- I played with several color combinations. Honestly Yupo is amazing! I will be purchasing vast quantities of this substrate. Of course I have no money since I've spent my allowance and more on supplies for CC103. I'm hoarding the rest of the Yupo stash for special projects. Anyway, I adore this Americana color blend with the ghosted stars.
Alcohol Ink Faded Layers on Yupo Technique -- Love this ... going to enjoy this playing with this more.
Alcohol Ink Faded Texture on Yupo Technique -- This is so in my wheel house. What a great technique that lends itself so well to the vintage, grunge look. Ready to use this on a card for a good friend of mine who is recovering from an almost fatal heart attack.
Alcohol Ink Painting on Yupo Technique: My mother has already claimed this. I swear ... I thought this was going to be a disaster. I'm amazed how well it turned out.
Alcohol Ink Fluid Landscapes on Yupo Technique: Ok this is the one that scared me. I seriously thought I would just make a slight attempt at it and go on. But oh ... what fantastical worlds of imagery this technique opens up. I've entitled this piece "Craters in Outer Space"
Alcohol Ink Splattered Floral Technique So lovely!
What fun!!!! I honestly feel like an artist. Mary Elizabeth
