Alcohol Inks and Foil

Hi Everyone

Today I have a video of a technique that I saw K Werner Design do last week! Its just too cool so I had to give it ago....

If you want to see the video from K Werner check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmA6gaCRgyE

So I used some Translucent Yupo Paper from Ranger.  and First of all I just dripped on my inks and then added some blending solution.  waited a bit for the alcohol to get a bit sticky and then added the foil.... TOO EASY!!

This is what I used:

Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink: Amethyst, Denim, Mermaid and Patina
Ranger: Blending Solution
Ranger: Translucent Yupo Paper
Impression Obsession Stamps: Wishing & Happy

All the products I used are available at Bev's Cross Crafts here in Tassie.  I've popped the links in so you can find them easier.  Happy Crafting

Mini Book Cover!

Hi Everyone!!

This video is a quick take on a class that I taught at Bev's Cross Crafts, which was to create your own Art Journal/Book Covers, Using Stone Paper.

In the class, we used a template that I created to draw out onto the stone paper and then we decorated it with Stamperia Rice Papers, Prima Paints and a bunch of other things.  Mixed Media is really a lot of fun, and the ladies that I taught all got messy and inky and had a great time!! 

Bev, asked me to make this video for the people who were unable to attend my class and also for our Main land customers...  This video is a very condensed version of what we did in class, so if you went to class and are now watching, I'm sure you will find that I have done things a little different and I have also skipped over a few other things.  Anyway the video is just under 15 minutes long, and the class went for a whole day! You get the idea! There's only so much one can fit in!!

Here is a close up of the finished book, the front cover. If you would like to see it in person, call into the shop and it will be on display :-)

There was a variety of products that I have used to create my little A6 Book cover, and I will link as much as I can directly to Bev's Cross Crafts, so if you do want to purchase anything that I have used, then you have the direct link!!  Happy Shopping - I'm sure you will find loads of other goodies along the way! Now if there isn't a link to a direct product in the store, you can send an email bev@bevscrosscrafts.com.au or andrew@bevscrosscrafts.com.au or give us a call (03) 64273972 and we can arrange it for you.
