Izink video tutorial {Mixed Media Place}

On Mixed Media Place blog you can see my video tutorial and long post about Izink ink. For s short time there is a discount for all Izinks in Mixed Media Place store :) See the end of the post :)

Izink - pigment ink, watersoluble, permanent after drying. When wet - it is similar to watercolor. When dry - it is permanent like acrylic paint. Each bottle has a dropper.

Below you can see the background created with Izinks. As you can see, the blue color is transparent. I have used water to dilute the Izink Ink, so they would be transparent.

You can create watercolour like effect, if you spray some waters on the top of wet izink inks. The colors will mix as it would be watercolours, but when everything dries, the colours will be permanent.

Below you can see, that if you do not dilute Izink ink with water and leave it, as it is, it will create a totally opaque effect or transparent one.

I created a video for you - I wanted to show you Izinkz in action :) I created this art-journal page:

And here is the video:

Wouldn't you like to try out these amazing inks?
This week you have a chance to grab a 10% discount on all Izinks in our Mixed Media Place store!
Starting today (September 9th) 'till September 16th you can get all your favorite colors of Izinks and see for yourselves the magic that they do. ;)
All you have to do is to use this code at the checkout:

Thank you for watching :)

my soul {UmWowStudio}

Hello :)

I am a happy member of small group, that has a robin-round art-journal swap. Below pages were created by me in DeeDee's art-journal and they show "my soul".

You can find here some mess, because creative soul has to be a little bit messy :) There are nature elements, a unicorn, some butterflies and moths - everything, that is so close to me.

Colors chosen by me are blues, violets and pinks - my favourites!

Background was created on 7 Dots Studio paper using Gelatos, pencils, crayons. I have added also some stickers and paper elements from Nature Walk 7 Dots Studio collection and Illumination.

Because I love night sky, I have used UWS Layered Star chipboard.

Creating art-journal pages, that express ones soul and inner world is so liberating!

Stamps are VivaLasVegas and 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk.

I hope I encouraged you again to take your favorite stash and create something from your soul.
