I recently found some fabric paint in my stash the other day so I'm trying to find some other ways to use it. This stuff is 20+ years old and I can't believe it still works! I stenciled this rose through a stencil with the paint, let it dry and then colored it in with Zebra Metallic brush markers. Plus some metallic splashes (:

I glued some leftover alcohol inked waterproof paper onto some recycled card stock to make a bookmark. Added some gold splashes, stars and this quote I pinned and now it's one of my favorites. Don't forget to laminate these beauties!

-Neenah Cardstock- White
This was the first time I've ever hand drawn a mandala... and it took a lot longer than I expected. But it was fun! Over the course of a few doctor visits I was able to finish something with minimal supplies on Neenah Paper Astrobrights Cardstock, Eclipse Black. These neon Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight Pen Set made it worth my while too (:
These are fun and really addicting to make! I love this Brea Reese Waterproof Paper- Medium Weight for making backgrounds! I've used the more expensive Yupo and various types of photo paper and this is a happy medium between the two. It's very thin but holds quite a bit of ink.
-Spray with alcohol or blending solution first for better blends.

-Turn your paper different ways to blend colors together and use a straw to blow in different directions
-Flick alcohol or blending solution to create bubbles of lifted ink
