Welcome back to the blog everyone!! Today I have an art journal page that I created using my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks. I’ve been wanting to use them in my journal pages but found it awkward to try to drag my journal into the inks.
I’ve found a simple way to get a watercolor effect background by using an acrylic block to transfer the ink onto the page. Now I’ll be using them more to create colorful backgrounds, check it out!!
I’ve used only 4 Distress Oxide colors for the entire project, they are: Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves, and Peeled Paint. I love how they stack, layer and create new colors in between. One of my favorite properties of this technique is to be able to control where you put the color and the drips and dollops of colors. I also colored the die cut Skeleton Leaves using an ink blending tool. Since no water was used, the color in more intense.
