More Sketch Book Work

I worked on more sketch book pages and backgrounds today. I also did a bit of felting but I’ll show you that on the Felting and Fiber Studio site soon. I printed out some of the photos that my sister Margaret and I took while she was here. There are of wildflowers and I want to work on sketching the flowers and developing further designs.

I also played around with some acrylic inks, acrylic flow release and rubbing alcohol.

I’m not sure I can tell what the flow release does. I will have to play around with it some more. Has anyone else used it?

These last two photos are using the rubbing alcohol. I painted first and then while the paint was still wet, I dropped alcohol onto the paint. It causes a kind of resist effect.

I really like this effect. It’s the rubbing alcohol again but instead of drops, I squeezed it in a stream across the page. It’s always fun playing with different color combinations and paint techniques. Have a good weekend!

  1. Some interesting effects there Ruth. The dripped one is my favourite. I wonder what effect you would get if you painted the alcohol on first, then added the paint in drips and spatters etc. while it’s still wet. Just a thought……. 🙂
