Mixed Media: Watercolor Rings with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks
Welcome everyone!! I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’ve been playing around with my Tim Holtz Alcohol inks to create a project for a friend of mine.
I thought I’d try out the Alcohol Hard Core Art Panels to see what results I would get. The Art Panel is hardboard that has a coating, something substantial that you could frame. I’ve chosen some of my favorite colors to work with and encourage you to do the same.
My objective with this project was to get watercolor looking rings and overlapping colors. It turned out close to what I had imagined.
The area of purple at the top looks like a flower with a green leaf poking from behind, I was thrilled about it!! Once I had my background completed, I added my message using Tim Holtz Alphanumeric Letters cut from black cardstock.
I hope you enjoy the process!
