About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

12 Months in View - Technique Challenge

This month's technique challenge over on 12 Months in View is blowing alcohol inks on acetate.

I have only done this on glossy card before (Timmy Tag), and as I wasn't getting such a great effect with blowing through a straw then, I even splashed out buying a proper blowythingy which you can use in any orientation!

I just  happened to have included two acetate pages in my CD mini-book so have had a go on one of those. Definitely didn't know when to stop and enjoyed the process immensely.

This is great! I hope I have as good a success. I am limited on my alcohol ink colors though.
