Welcome Back

 

Last week I was reading Seth Apter’s blog The Altered Page and he had this wonderful idea of re-posting one of your favorite posts from the past. So for my first venture into a collaborative project of this kind, here is a video tutorial that was previously shown on my old blog and never quite made in onto here, until now…

How to Create Your Own Backgrounds using Dye Based Inks

 

 

 

This one of the first films I made and I have hopefully improved on the lighting these days.  Here is a better view of the example show demonstrated in the film;

Same as the earlier piece but now with a layer of irredescent spray. It is subtle until the light catches it just right.

The stamps were by Katzel Kraft and all the inks used were Ranger’s Adirondack dye based inks. Applied as shown in the film.

 

Its been great to get these on here at last. They had been forgotten, but now they are here. Do let me know what you think. A rating or two would be great if you are on You Tube ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsXM7RO3IU8

To see the work of others who are taking part in this collaboration, please visit Seth Apter’s blog; The Altered Page.

Thanks for this oportunity to join in with this project Seth, it has given me the nudge I needed to get this post on to this WordPress blog.

 

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Billie :)
