Hi everyone, Adriana here today and welcome to the Couture Creations Blog. I have been playing in my art journal again, it is very relaxing and so much fun creating and playing in my journal.
Since Christmas is only a few weeks away, I have created a Merry Christmas page with a touch of Australiana. This could easily be created for a card instead of journal page.
Using the Couture Creations - Metallic Alloy Alcohol inks for the background, with some stamping elements from
SWEEPING PLAINS collection.
I have a full tutorial video over on YOU TUBE
the link is end of this blog post.
I created the background on yupo paper 5x7
Using Cinnamon Metallic Alloy Alcohol Ink
and also Champagne Metallic Alcohol Ink
The Metallic Alcohol Inks give such a beautiful shimmery effect on the Yupo paper. I really love these collection of Alcohol Inks.
My tutorial video shows you how to create this page from start to finish.
I try to keep my video under 10 mins so that you get feel of how I created my project. Some sections are fast forwarded so that you don't get bored, BUT you can pause the Video at anytime by pausing or stopping the button on the bottom of the screen.
Once the alcohol inks are dry on the Yupo paper, I added some stamping elements
and also created my Kookaburra with the
SWEEPING PLAINS - Kookaburra Mini stamp and die set.
Also adding some poinsettias cut from the 12 x 12 paper
