Ready to see what I have in store for you today? Let’s get started on the second half of the album.
The background was inked with several colors of water based inks. Then, I simply allowed the inks to run down the page. The right side of the page was created by mixing green re-inker into gel medium and then applying the gel medium to the page over a Mini Circle Grid Crafter’s Workshop Template.
The gears were first inked on one side with alcohol ink and then ran through an embossing machine. Then, on the side that had not been inked, I applied a layer of StazOn to the raised portion. A bit of punchinella and fabric was added to finish the page.
While I was playing with the acrylic pages, I discovered a fun splatter technique using alcohol inks. I squeezed a couple drops of alcohol ink onto my craft mat and then added in a small amount of blending solution. Mix the two together with a paint brush, and then flick the ink mixture onto the page. The blending solution slows the drying time on the alcohol ink, giving just enough time to make a splattered “mess”.
For the background on the next page, apply a thin layer of gesso over a Circle Grid Crafter’s Workshop template and allow the gesso to dry completely. Then apply your favorite colors of ink to the page. Then, using the same template and a Pure Orange Zig Writer, trace circles over the entire page. The dress form was created by covering the bodice with paper and then a layer of Stickles was applied on top of the paper. The skirt was created by layering on a ruffeled trim. The stand was heat embossed with WOW embossing powders.
To start with the canvas page, apply your favorite colors of spray inks to thoroughly saturate the canvas and allow the dry. Then, using a permanent black ink, stencil over a Henna Hands Crafter’s Workshop template. The stars were created using the Punchinella Crafter’s Workshop template and Iridescent Medium. The circles were created using white paint and a dry bruch technique.
The last page is a fun one! But……you’ll just have to come back tomorrow for a full tutorial on how this beauty was created.
