Alcohol Ink

I've never had the desire to experiment with alcohol inks, but somehow, I caught the bug-and now I can't stop. I am still very much a beginner, but I am loving the effects alcohol ink can bring to so many things! For the moment, I'm showing you my take on some gloss-paper tags, and some ghost letters. But the possibilities really are endless for this stuff. I want to try it on wood- that will be my next venture, I think. I really recommend trying it out and getting a feel for how things work. Plus- the blending solution is amazing- you can practically start all over again if you feel like your project has become a blob. Enjoy! Let me know if you try it!

Theater Inspiration

I wanted to make this LO for a while, but finally got around to it. I took my inspiration from the movie case of "Moulin Rouge", and I just love how it turned out.
