Day 16

This is an experimental post! I've already finished my page for 16th September, even though the day's only halfway through as I type this, but I got all inspired by alcohol inks this morning... But I may not get online at all tomorrow, so I'm setting up this post in advance and hoping I can prime it to post automatically tomorrow morning. If it works, it'll appear on the morning of the 17th and all this talk of this morning and tomorrow will be very confusing, sorry!!

Anyway... Here's the page:
It's a piece of acetate, coloured with alcohol inks in Lettuce and Stream with a touch of gold mixer. I _love_ the effect! I shall definitely explore this technique with other colour combos :-) I stamped the journaling with StazOn, using PaperArtsy stamps. That's all this particular page needed. I don't intend to use the back for tomorrow's page - it's quite nice to have a single-sided page like this in the middle of my album, marking the halfway point through my project (though I don't plan to do a page about that specifically, as per Shimelle's prompt, I know that's what this page signifies and that'll do me!)

Blue and green are my favourite colours Mel so I LOVE this page. The ink effect is fabulous.
I'm going away on end of term three holidays as of Saturday so I wont be able to finish this class in live time, which is a pity. I will not have access to the internet but I will have photoshop with me and will still make a page every day. I hope to post them all in the forum when I get home and I'd love to drop by your blog again if it's ok with you.
Enjoy the rest of the class - I know for me it has been very inspiring, I hope we might meet again in another online class.

Hope you're back on-line and full steam ahead soon - it's very frustrating isn't it?

Loving the alcohol inks. May get you to show me how you use them - talented lady!
