Hey there! Do you like creating with Alcohol ink? I know I do! It’s easy to use and works on most non-porous surfaces. Did I mention the colors? Oh what glorious, vibrant, and magnificent colors! Adirondack Alcohol Inks are available in 48 colors and 4 Mixatives sure to take your creativity to new heights! If you haven’t tried them yet you MUST!
I have scoured the internet for weeks in search of amazing alcohol ink projects to inspire you. Get ready for an ocular experience sure to have your creative mojo firing on all cylinders!
One of my favorite Alcohol Ink creations and quite possibly the coolest thing ever made with Alcohol ink is this Fabulous Alternative Glass Slipper by Sarah Engels Greer. If Sarah hasn’t been approached by Jimmy Choo yet he will be calling soon. I would totally rock a pair of these beauties. Stop by Sarah’s blog La-de-da to see what else the belle of the Steam Punk Ball has created. Her projects are nothing short of amazing.
Calling all Twi-hards! My friend Sharul @ Such Pretty Canvas has created a beautiful tribute to star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward with this ‘Forever Love’ Tin Mini Album. Sharul creates fantastic art journal pages and is an avid up-cycler. She will wow you with her altered artistry.
I’m not going to lie. I squealed (out loud) with delight when I saw this Altered Paint Brush created by Marjie Kemper. I want a whole wall of altered paint brushes to adorn my “Someday” studio. Marjie has been such an inspiration to me. I hold her partly responsible for getting me to “Drink the Kool-aid” aka Art Journaling. She also introduced me to the wonderful world of Dylusions Spray inks…and I have been “dylusional” over them ever since! Stop by Marjie’s Blog where creative “Kool-aid” is served by the gallon. A trip to Marjie’s world is sure to quench your thirst for inspiration.
Next we have the lovely Linda Ledbetter from Studio L3. Oh my, if I get started talking about Linda I may never stop. It was because of her that I even discovered Alcohol inks in the first place but Linda Ledbetter has meant so much more than that to me. Linda has given me an artistic education through the weekly challenges on her blog that have inspired me to make and create things I never dreamed possible. Although we have never met, Linda has been such an inspiring, encouraging, teacher to me. Be sure to stop by Studio L3, I guarantee you will leave inspired beyond words.
Next, my friend Johnnie from Saved By Love Creations has a lovely fall wreath made from upcycled aluminum cans. I thought I was a upcycler extraordinaire until I met Johnnie. She truly knows how to create “something” from nothing. Johnnie will have you saying “how’d she do that?”…but fear not friends she offers detailed tutorials on her blog that will answer those burning questions. The only question you will have after leaving Saved by Love Creations is “When is junk pick up again?” Get your pick up truck ready, and if you don’t have one call in a favor from a friend that does because Johnnie has found a use for everything under the sun!
Finally, I want to share one of my favorite projects I have made with Alcohol Ink. This project was a turning point for me in my artistic journey. I have it in my living room as a reminder to “Enjoy the journey” and “Stay Curious” (Thanks Tim!)….
Thanks to all for your words of encouragement and wisdom. You have all kept me inspired even when inspiration eluded. I hope you enjoy these amazing Alcohol ink projects as much as I have!
