Dreamscape (Working Title)

It’s been a while since I shared a work in progress (WIP), so I made sure to document tonight’s creation process so I could give you a peek! This was my first time using Ranger Inks (I typically use Jacquard’s Piñata Inks), and I liked them. They feel (and break) a bit different, which makes for fun variety. This is called Dreamscape.

Creating Cranberry Canvas (Working Title)

This was fun in part because it was the largest alcohol ink I’ve created, but also because it was the first time I’d done alcohol ink on canvas. This was a 16×20 pre-stretched canvas. I have a spot in my living room I was eyeballing for some new art and wanted to put an alcohol ink Inspired Flow Art piece on display. I figured rather than create one and have it reprinted to size, I might as well make use of one of the canvases I had on hand from my adventures with acrylic paint. 🙂 Continue reading Creating Cranberry Canvas (Working Title)

I had a couple issues along the top edge and one air bubble but on the whole it is looking beautiful! It really makes Seaside Sunshine‘s colors pop and gives it a stunning high gloss finish.

Seaside Sunshine Pendant

So fun to see this Seaside Sunshine pendant in action, and it looks beautiful! I was concerned about this one because it had less contrast than some of the others, but it looks gorgeous. A great reminder that there is a purpose and a home for each piece. Their uniqueness is what makes them special! Continue reading Seaside Sunshine Pendant

Trying New Things

After purchasing (and loving) an epoxy resin round created with alcohol inks, I wanted to try some for myself. Suited up with my mask to protect my lungs, I did my first attempt. The resin release spray added texture and I didn’t get all the bubbles out unfortunately (and now I know why that’s such a problem), but for a first try it was a success!  Continue reading Trying New Things
