art journal | using alcohol inks and lift ink

Today I am back with an art journal. I wanted to play with my new Alcohol Lift-Ink Pad( SBC | SSS | JGG ) for a while and I finally gave it a try. The result was stunning on the background I created so I turned it into a quick art journal page.

I worked on Ranger Yupo Paper ( SBC | SSS ) and that new ink pad creates the most amazing ghost effect. For my focal points I used butterflies that I stamped and colored with alcohol inks. The butterflies are from the Rubber Stamp Set – Flutter( SBC | SSS ).

I added some dimension on my butterflies with white thread and foam squares at the back. I used one of the Quote Chips( SBC | SSS ) for my motivational page quote and I embellished it with Design Tape – Chatter( SBC | SSS | JGG ).

That was the last page of this wonderful 6X6 disc bound journal ( SSS | JGG ) that I know call finished. You can see a flip-through on the video.

    I love all your Art Journal video’s. I just bought the alcohol lift ink and then watched you video. Fabulous! You don’t list the silver foil in your supply list. I have never used this foil and am wondering where and what brand to buy. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Vicky!
    What a stunning Art Journal page! You absolutely inspired me to play with my alcohol inks again. I decided to try the alcohol lift ink and ordered mine with Scrapbook.
    Again, it was so wonderful to see your Art Journal page. Do you have an idea for a new Art Journal? What ever it is, I can’t wait to see your lovely and inspiring ideas again very soon!

    Vicky, I am a total fan of yours. I have watched all of your YouTube videos. I don’t recall how I found you but I LOVE your creations! I try very hard to emulate you. My husband knows the sound of your voice because I watch your videos in bed while he watches TV — we call you Vicky YouTube! And when I want to buy a product I just say I need it because my mentor, Vicky Youtube uses this 😄😄.
    During one of your videos you mentioned the name of your mentor and I watched a few of her videos. I would like to subscribe to her channel too but can’t remember her name. Would you kindly tell me who she is?
    Thank you so much for your excellent instruction and endless creativity. PLEASE COME TO DALLAS, TX!!
