New Adventure layout - Alcohol Ink backrounds

Hi there everyone today I am on the blog with a scrapbooking page and 
the backgrounds are created with the
Couture Creations

I wanted to match a background with the photo of my
little nephew walking around the cliffs of Moana Beach.

I did one a month ago- very similar to this one in my journal book
which I applied two coats of gesso all over my pages before playing and applying the alcohol inks.

The cliffs are so amazing in colour and using the Alcohol Inks
to create the same colours and tones for the background of the photo and extend this colour.....  I hope you like my page ...

I created the background to match the photo - using alcohol inks on YUPO paper

I will have some more projects in the next few weeks using the Alcohol Inks for projects like these....

Hi there everyone welcome back, Adriana here with today's blog post for Couture Creations
today I am showcasing the new 
Couture Creations Alcohol Inks which have been released and 
available at your local papercraft and art supply store NOW !!!

Using Alcohol inks to create amazing backgrounds - is what I love to do!!

You can achieve amazing results with some of the colour combinations too and today I have at the end of this blog post - a very short video showing you how easy it is to use the Alcohol Inks with 
Couture Creations Yupo paper, Yupo translucent and White Glitter card stock.

Using Couture Creations Alcohol Inks 
on White Glitter card CO727177
I love the glittery shimmer on the card with the colours, check out my short video in the link below on how I created this fabulous background.

Using the Couture Creations YUPO Adhesive paper CO727341
with the Pistachio Alcohol ink CO727321
Lemonade Alcohol ink CO727315
Aqua Alcohol Ink CO727299

Once it is all dry I then cut out some leaves from the Peaceful Peonies leafy Branch die CO727388, and because this has been created on Yupo Adhesive paper - 

Super easy to adhere these leaves - just peel off the backing from the 
Yupo Adhesive paper and adhere to any project 

This sample below is created with the 
Couture Creations Yupo Translucent Paper CO727340

Happy New Year 2020 CARD by Adriana Bolzon

Foiling the 
Peaceful Peonies Lacey border three types in different colours of foils
adding some 3D decoupage sheets from a Christmas collection, but I think that this dress is lovely for a NEW YEAR 2020 card.

Then I also created this card using the same Peaceful Peonies Lacey Border hot foil stamp and also the Peaceful Peonies Spotted Butterfly Cut, Foil & Emboss die ..

Foiling the Peaceful Peonies Lacey border hot foil stamp 
on each end of this card.
The photograph doesn't do the butterfly justice, it is a gorgeous pink foiled butterfly LOVE LOVE LOVE !



Enjoy your day and Happy New Year to you all for 2020..
