Day 2 with Alcohol Inks...

So, day two has now finished and I have completely fallen in love with Ranger Inks and Tim Holtz bits! My hands are stained in purple and green and my t-shirt is sprinkled with mica powders...
The two sessions where run by Jennie from the Artistic Stamper at 'Its Crafting Time' outside Cambridge, run by Nina.
Day one, we created journals using shiny paper, metal, foils and inks.

Day two, we have created the most amazing collection boxes.

(This is Jennies example)
I have never seen so much stuff all on one table and each of us working in such a small space just because we were slowly hording stuff into (un)tidy piles all around us.

Thats Nina at the back!
 My mess...

After a very green day yesterday, I went purple today. The colours available are lovely and the different techniques brilliant. Even a Virgo like me coped with the mess and disorder (still can't quite cope with random stamping though!).

Any way, we got to play with some new products aswell. I liked the dabbers a lot as they are not so messy - but I did love the sprays because I could get great colour and effects.
A work in progress!
        The finished article!

I will definitely be playing with this again soon. Roll on the next crafting class...
Head over to Jennies blog for the techniques...

A day out with alcohol inks

So, this is my first ever post on my first ever blog! I have built it after spending a lovely day making a journal with alcohol inks and shiny paper. Will add photos once I have learnt how to do it!
