Alcohol Inks

I'm almost done with the Masterz class for the Bind It All. I hope to finish the last 4, yes 4, more projects. I love the on line classes @ The classes are posted for quite a long time with both pdf files and videos. Its nice to be able to work at your own pace while learning extraordinary techniques. The latest class I am taking is working with Ranger alcohol inks. These give such interest to all sort of glossy materials. These lanterns I got at Michaels' several years ago but never got around to doing anything with them. Voila, alcohol inks! The fairies I also had for quite a few years and thought hum, citronella candles around the patio table, perfect! I also learned how to "dye" coffee filters and then decided to turn them into flowers for the favor boxes for Cecilia's christening. I couldn't find a pretty paper to match so I used the inks and coffee filters to make my own! I think they turned out really pretty. Three more weeks of classes with the inks and then I think I'll just get busy trying to incorporate what I've learned in these 3 classes to create some really unique projects. The creative juices are flowing, lol!!!
