A plethora of prints




I love making prints using Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks and StencilGirl stencils.  You can just make oodles of background papers if you like...


...or create art journal pages like I did here with 
Kae Pea's Celestial Grove Stencil and some of her stamps from Rubbermoon



As you can see I got 2 completely different pages even though I used the same inks and stencil, check out my video to see how and what I did!



I can't wait to see what the other creative geniuses made with their inks and stencils! Hop along to see and get inspired! I know I am!

I love that you used all these different papers to expand our world of possibilities! Your projects are scrumptious - so beautiful. Just when I thought you had finished and all was beautiful, you added another element, taking it to the next level. Amazing! ~Rachel Bell

Such great art pieces! I'm always astounded at the way different artists like yourself layer things up and arrange in such a way as to get great projects. I just end up with a mess when I try.

I LOVE it!

I love the way the elements come together in such a unique way! Very inspirational. I’m finding some great ideas on this blog hop, which is perfect timing. Raining outside, time to come in and get out the supplies....and add some new ones for winter....

Jill McDowell said...

Sandee, such an awesome post. I can't believe how many prints you got out of that one inking. It make me think of those old Ronco commercials, "But wait, there's more...". Your pages made me smile. I'll be buying some hand sanitizer soon!

CLAUDIA said...

Love your techniques. Thank you for your inspirations. Thank you for the chance to win. C21claudia@aol.com

Lucy T said...

Sandee, I am very impressed by how many prints you got from the first print. Using the gel in this way was the first time I have seen this technique. I can see why it works with the alcohol inks. Great idea! I love all the prints you made and how you used a fine marker to draw the design, then your creative use of adding other elements was inspiring. Thank You!

Cathy Frailey said...

I have got to get some alcohol inks! That tutorial using hand sanitizer was AMAZING!

Gaye Miller said...

Sandee, just WOW! Love how you get so many background options from this technique. And as always, love your creativity. You continue to inspire me. Thanks!

elaine Huffman said...

I can't wait to do this!

Carol w said...

Love the colorful prints you got from the alcohol inks...got to try this technique!

Cathy Potosky said...

Love how different the two images turned out! I really need to get my stencils out more and get them dirty! :)

Lynda Shoup said...

I am mesmerized by the difference in the prints. You have so many fun play things now! The hand sanitizer was a new idea for me and I guess I'll have to find where I put mine. You have made me quite compelled to get out and get some of those inks. Wonderful video!
