---------------Adirondack Inks and Paints--------------

This was a challenge.

Use Ranger Adirondacks products - inks and paints.

I had several Dye Ink pads, a few Pigment Pads, lots of Paint Dabbers and a whole bunch of Alcohol Inks.

So where to start. Add some white paint with a dabber and a stencil.

Flip it over and smoosh extra paint on the other page.

Then I rubbed all kinds of color all over a journal page using Direct to Paper and Cut-n-Dry foam.

 Needless to say some of the colors were really bright like the Clover, Bottle and Terra Cotta.

I added some stencil work with Distress Inks and Paint dabbers.

The Seedless Preserves, Gathered Twigs, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks really made the stencil work pop.

Gold paint dabber on the stenciled raindrops added some shine.

I love the Lemonade and Terra Cotta background with contrasting Distress Ink here.

Can you see the eyes coming from the corner....just a happy accident.

Some silver raindrops here and lots of white gel pen.

I traced some of the leaves with the stencil and added outlines and shadows.

This was a fun project, and a real learning experience on combining different types of inks and paints.

Explore and Expand!

I'm off to Prairie Art Stamps this weekend...can't wait!
