all squares are size 4x4 inches (10x10 cm)

this blog might be a bit neglected at the moment, as i´m working on an altered book quite the same style as these squares... so you better visit my main blog mixedmediafun for more posts... thank you!

crazy amigo challenge "ink and water"

most of my backgrounds are made with ink and water. i dilute some drops of stampinks in water and brush over blank white cardstock or over old pages from fleamarket books. still wet, i spritz another color on with a toothbrush (here the purple onto the orange paper), and it normally bleeds in quite well. you can also use only water (instead of a second color) to spritz on with your hands, so that gives an effect like working with salt sometimes. what i like about this technique is: the results never are predictable. every paper reacts differently with the ink and water, some bleed the colors together very well, others take a completely different look...
