Hi and welcome. Today I'm showing the result of playing with alcohol inks, a medium I enjoy working with. I've used them on two very different products which were then used on a layout as embellishments.
Aluminium flashing ( the self-adhesive, non-tarry one) from the hardware store was put through an embossing folder (TH Riveted Metal) and then daubed with alcohol inks: espresso, latte and ginger.
The cogs were die-cut from glitter cardstock (silver) and coloured with alcohol inks: espresso and denim. I tipped these directly onto the cogs before dabbing them slightly to spread the ink; no blending solution was used.
The frame around the photo was the one that originally came with it. It was also put through the same embossing folder and smooched with distress inks: weathered wood (a favourite of mine) and antique linen. Some dots of copper Kindyglitz were added to some of the rivets and the foam title.
A journalling tag, which can swivel from a brad, completed the layout. The tag lists some of son's favourite things at the time. These included using tools and building with Lego and Meccano.
This layout is being entered in the ARTastic challenge for march: using a portrait photo. Find out more about there challenge here:http://artasticchallengeblog.blogspot.com.au/
