Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

I Know I am boring you to tears now....

But I am excited... getting a bit ahead of myself with the course so I will make a few more pages but stop adding colour to my pages and work along with the syllabus!! but I can't help it cos I am a bit obsessed!
Here are a few before and afters

(L) Alcohol inks/silver pen  (R) Lumiere Paints (had these ages but rarely use them! Why not?? They are luscious!)

(L) was sprayed with ink whilst wet, dried nicely- just added Cosmic Shimmers, highlighted creases with gold ink, sprinkled with embossing powder
(R) added green paint to the PVA.. not very exciting - Painted with Glass paints, lovely translucent finish

(L) Brusho Paints - yum! (R) Walnut Inks - not the proper stuff but 'tints' looks nice and grungy!

OK OK I promise to stop now (for a bit)


  1. oh no dont stop...this is something new to me and Im finding it extremely interesting! Look forward to seeing more...please.

  2. I don't know what course it is you're doing Nicks, but it sounds like a lot of (messy)fun! I just love those Brusho paints at the moment. Look forward to seeing what's next.

  3. So is this the next step in the fabric paper process then?
    If it is, how EXCITING! If it's not, how EXCITING!!
