Hi! These days I have been playing with my alcohol inks. If you are wondering how to use those wonderful backgrounds that you can create with them then look no further. I am going to show you how you can turn those alcohol inked backgrounds into stunning art journal layouts quickly and easily.
For my background I worked on white Yupo Paper ( SBC | SSS ). I used a combination of three alcohol inks. I always like to apply some blending solution on my yupo paper first. This helps the inks to blend easily and I can even blow and force the blending with a straw.
Alcohol inks will give you stunning backgrounds with vibrant colors each time. In the areas where the ink is really concentrated you will find that it is sticky. Use some foil sheets on top for adding random shine in different areas. You can see my silver foiling in the photo above.
All you need to do to turn wonderful vibrant backgrounds into art journals is to stamp on top with black ink. Black will help your colors pop even more. I used a new stamp set that I love, by Tim Holtz – Theories( SBC | SSS ). I also added strips of design tapes from the Design Tape – Chatter ( SBC | SSS | JGG ).
