Colorful Background Page with Distress Inks
I took some classes over on Bluprint (you have probably see the commercial during the TV Show “Making It” on NBC. Anyway I learned how to make a colorful background page with distress inks.
This was my first attempt and I got MUCH BETTER later on in learning how to blend the inks better, BUT for this page, I’m SUPER HAPPY I didn’t know because the splotches MAKE IT! ~Like my fav BOB ROSS said “there are no mistakes only HAPPY ACCIDENTS!
Products used to create this colorful background page:
The distress inks I used, are of course of the famous Tim Holtz collection. I love them and use them frequently!
There is so much to be done with distress inks!! In the video below I show a couple of techniques, one of them is a reverse technique that removes are weakens the colors making it a lovelier design.
Stencils are another great way to create a background I used to different ones in this project from a particular set of three from a Tim Holtz stencil collection. That is shown below as well.
And now for our video!
I made a mistake at the end and record the paused parts instead of what I was actually doing, but you get the idea anyway. NO NEED TO COPY anyone just take what you see and make it yours!!
