Alcohol Ink Painting on Yupo

Hi everyone, I'm back with you today to share my latest piece for Art and Soul Studio, an alcohol ink painting on Yupo which I have called "Autumn Stream"


I have been wanting to play with alcohol inks on Yupo paper for a while now... Yupo paper is plastic paper and is great for not only alcohol inks but also for watercolours and professional printing too...
It was fabulous to paint on with the alcohol inks and if you have the opportunity I would definitely say have a go at it... you can't ruin it using alcohol inks... cause you can just use Isopropyl alcohol and clean it all off and start again!!!  Fabulous for experimenting on...

I have made a time lapse video of my process for you all... so grab a cuppa and enjoy...


here's a couple of close ups...


Product List:

Copic Pen E39 Leather
Copic Pen Y38 Honey
Alcohol Ink Blending Solution


hope you enjoyed seeing my process,
till next time
Happy Creating,

Life Captured ..... for Scrap FX

Hi everyone,  today I have my latest layout for Scrap FX to share with you all....
"Life Captured"
Sharing another of my fav photo's with the tiger cubs in Thailand...

for my background of this layout I used the two new stencils... Japanese Garden Stencil and the Oriental Flower Stencil...


I used the Japanese Garden Stencil in full and then taped off most of the Oriental Flower Stencil and used it numerous times to create my background...
I used the Colourblast inks to add my colour to the background...
I used the Life Captured wordlet for my title, and painted it up with Twinkling H2O's .... love how they shimmer, and love the new pan sets now available!!!
I used the #surreal from the #surreal theme pack to add to my photo.


I added the new Nodding Buds Large to embellish my photo cluster along with a few flowers and stems...
I again painted this up using my Twinkling H2O's... just check out that shine...

Well, that's all from me today...

till next time happy creating
