Creative Chemistry - Days 3, 4, 5 and 7!

Coo what a day I've had - re-watching the lessons - stopping and starting them - and generally getting inky!

Day 3
Techniques - Alcohol Ink Agate, Archival Resist and Reflections Stamping (without reflections stamps!)

Day 4
Techniques - Watercolouring with Re-inkers and Layered Misting (Custom Stamp Pad is missing due to lack of supplies!)

Day 5
Stained Kraft Resist, Stamping with Stains (love this one!) and Marbled Stains

 and a spare Kraft resist piece

Day 6 - missing due to lack of distress markers or any suitable alternatives!

Day 7


Techniques - Nostalgic Batik (without the ironing layer) Rusted Enamel and Distress Powder Resist.

I am quite tired now - I started about 11 am and just finished... the other 3 days can come tomorrow.
Sorry about some of the photos, I ran out of daylight...

Here's what happens to your water brush that isn't Tim's one from Ranger - it sucks up the colour...
Oops, what a mess in the background of the shot.... oh well a creative crafty space, you've all seen worse! (and look, I found the hole re-inforcers - they weren't where they are now, when I couldn't find them yesterday, honest, I'm not that poor-sighted!)
Now for my steak and chips...if I can unfurl my knees!

Lovely tags there Helen. What time can I come round for the steak or have I missed it? Sorry I didn't come earlier but took part in the Earth Hour, then ironing so am a little late! Better late than never ey?
If your hands are as inky as mine, then we could both do with a scrubbie!!LOL x

Just been catching up. Your tags are AMAZING! You are almost convincing me to join the class thingy but a) I doubt I have all the products needed and b) I am still *trying* not to join anymore till I complete the ones I already paid for.
