Default MIX278 - Push It - May 25, 2018

Challenge Title: Push It
Hostess: Scrapacat (Ky)
Keyword: MIX278

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE

Hey there! Congrats on making it to another Friday! Today I want you to think about flowers. Delicate flowers, bold flowers, flowers of unusual colors, your favorites, just weeds...get the idea?


Take those thoughts and marry them to alcohol inks. Drizzle your alcohol blending solution and alcohol inks onto an appropriate surface (tiles, Yupo paper, glossy paper designed for alcohol inks, etc.). Take a can of compressed air and have fun pushing the inks around into a flower shape. You can use a straw and just blow the ink if you don't have compressed air.


Here is a short video I've produced to help you visualize the process.




Remember to use the keyword MIX278 when uploading your creations to the gallery, come back and post a link, and let us "ooooooh" and "ahhhhhh" over your works of art!

This looks like enormous fun. Not something to start before work or I might end up missing my bus! I'm not so comfortable with the "never know what you are going to get" type techniques but I'm certainly looking forward to trying this out. Thanks, Ky.

LOL at Linda's comment. Glad I didn't try this before work as I'd definitely have run out of time before ending up with anything halfway usable, and my hands are a MESS.

I think I pushed my alcohol inks beyond recognition, so mine became a background! Thanks Ky, I have to work on my skills. Haha

Didn't want to waste my first piece as I had put so much into it. Here's a much more mixed media production...

Haven't played in the MIX challenge for quite a while. This was fun but I am a little inky.
