Yesterday was my fortnightly turn at conducting a Workshop at Kraft Crazy. Home of Shopkeeper Gal and sanctuary for quite a few of the characters that you read of herein.
Yesterday we used water and inks in various ways to create Batik and other effect backgrounds. My workshops are fairly structured, in that there's a finished card for each technique so that you have a short play and then actually make something. It's all done to reflect what I want from a workshop see. That way it stays within my control and remains all about me and what I like. They are also I hope, relatively relaxed. Last night was. I had eaten some diet marshmallows and the sugar really gave me a buzz! Really enjoyed myself.
This panel was stamped and embossed with clear ink, clear powder. Over heat the embossing, and apply a couple of colours of alcohol ink, using the applicator tool method and a bit of blending solution. Simple.
This one was even more straight forward. Clear ink, clear embosing powder, slightly overheat to remove shine and then sponge on Distress Inks. Cheerful, innit.
And this was the fourth, which you've already met. Squash a Brilliance ink pad onto a non pourous surface, spritz with water and splodge the previuosly embossed paper across it. If nothing else, it has helped me to rediscover my lovely Brilliance inks!
I don't know. Not going to change at this age though, huh! Have a lovely weekend.
