New Techniques with an Old Friend

Alcohol Inks have been around for several years.  They are wonderful for use on non-porous surfaces, and we've done a lot with them in the past on Glossy Paper and dominos, etc.  But did you know you could create a watercolor wash effect on watercolor paper????  Friends, that's a porous surface!!!  And, because they are translucent, they don't get muddy as they mix and spread. 

I've also loved playing with them on Vertigo film, and blowing on them with the Distress Marker Spritzer to create new and interesting patterns.

If you haven't pulled out your alcohol inks in a while, stop in this Tuesday between 12 & 2 and get inspired!  And, if you've never played with them before, well, all the better!  You will fall in love! 

The demo is free and you don't need to pre-register.  Come on in!
