I played last night at creating backgrounds for Roz’ class. I enjoyed it immensely. I did use some acrylic inks to splatter on the pages, but they seemed to dry v…e…r…y slowly, so I am not pleased with them. I am wondering if the brand or the age of the inks might be the issue. I used a Crafter’s Workshop circle grid stencil and distress ink pads to make the designs. Distress ink is probably not going to be waterproof going forward, but we shall see. I enjoyed playing with the colors and textures.
Mixed Media Visual Journal
I REALLY like the mixed media paper…not as heavy as the watercolor, but takes the wet media very well.
So now I am making a list of Golden Fluid acrylic paints I need…I pretty much used up the only yellow I had.
The next photo is the 140 lb. watercolor journal.
