This week's colours for the Summer of Colour Challenge are Royal Blue, Red and Light Blue.
I was in fear of missing the deadline so, as I had bought a new Alcohol Ink (AI) in light blue (Pool) recently, I decided to have a go with that and the Red and Blue I already had. (Sail Boat Blue and Red Pepper).
I used some glossy photo paper, dripped the inks on it and used my Timmy Distress Marker Spritzer tool to give it a whoosh about.
I embossed (in keeping with my theme) the piece with swirls. I added a few "lowlights" to the swirls in black permanent marker. I added some Liquid pearls and glitter and even coloured the Washi tape, for attaching it to my DLP journal, with the Pool AI. I also filled in the remaining white space with Blue and Red Sharpie pens.
Can't say it is my favourite piece, but fulfills the criteria methinks.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Your piece is very pretty and bright!
What a beautiful work of art! I loved reading about how you made this, too! A simply gorgeous way to use this week's colors!!!
Lovely abstract with these colours. I enjoyed reading about the materials you used too.
Thanks for sharing your technique, very pretty!
May not be your fave but it has movement and depth. btw love the way you've marked your ai bottles. How did you, do that?
You're getting a lot of use out of that spritzer, aren't you? The AIs were perfect for these colors. And of course, I like the swirls, and the way you added this to your DLP journal. That book must be getting SO full! Very, very impressive this week, and I agree, it really DOES fulfill the color entry.
That is utterly gorgeous!
These turned out great! I love alcohol inks and used them on the dice in my first house.
Lots of motion in your piece! Great vivid colors as well. It has been awhile since I've used alcohol inks. They are fun.
Oh this is lovely, I love the swirly patterns in it!!
