Art Journalling with Alcohol Inks Part #1

Hi everyone, Adriana here today and I am exploring techniques on creating wonderful backgrounds with 
Couture Creations Alcohol Inks 
on normal art journalling paper and books.  I have been playing around with Alcohol inks on Yupo paper and I also love creating in my art Journal book.  I have created a video to show you all how to create on Yupo paper and then while the inks are still wet on the Yupo paper, I place a page from my art journal (300gsm) over the top , rubbing the back and presto a unique transfer of the alcohol ink colour onto the art journalling card stock is achieved.  I love the effect... and this is now ready to be stamped, coloured or using a stencil and some texture paste over the page.

After I created my background, on my journal pages, I stamped some images with the
Mini Stamp and Die set from


CO727989 Sweeping Plains - Fair Dinkum Mini sentiment stamps set
CO727984 Sweeping Plains - Kookaburra Mini stamp and die set
CO727985 Sweeping Plains - Eucalyptus Mini stamp and die set

my second art journal page

I have a video of the whole process on how I created these
backgrounds in my Art Journal Book - to see the full tutorial please click HERE:

Stay tune for Part #2 Video - this time exploring another way of using art journal pages together with an art journal that you can't remove the pages
