I have an entire bin filled with Tim Holtz Alcohol inks that I rarely use. So for this art journal spread I decided to pull then out and experiment some.
My journal is made of watercolor paper so in order for the alcohol inks to work I need to add a glossy medium to the pages. I used Heavy Gel Gloss for my first layer. After this was completely dry I squirted on some Alcohol Blending solution and then various colors of alcohol ink. I then tip my page around to blend them together. I also used a can of air to spread the ink around. I repeated this until I was happy with the background.
Next I painted some papers using the Tim Holtz Distress paints.
I then die cut out the hearts form the painted papers and adhered them to my background.
Next I inked up a tag using the same alcohol ink method as the background. I then added my saying to the tag and adhered it to my page.
