Becky here today to share a journal page I did for an upcoming class I am teaching at my daughter's elementary school...Using none other than the FABULOUS Splash Inks from Yasutomo!
"WHAT are Splash Inks?", you ask!
"They are the best thing since sliced bread", I say!
They are an ACRYLIC Ink that acts like a watercolor, but are waterproof when dry!! Plus, if you used other acrylic inks, they take FOREVER to dry! These don't! And the color is so vivid! PLUS, you can literally create 100's of colors with the FOUR colors that come in the set! There's a handy-dandy mixing sheet in the set to help you create so many wonderful colors! You can paint or make your own sprays with them too!
The possibilities are truly endless!
I started with a sheet of mixed media paper that I had applied a thin layer of gesso to. When dry, I brushed water across the page. Then I took the Magenta, Yellow & Blue inks from my Splash Ink set & dropped 5-9 drops of each color on the page; sprayed a light mist of water on that to get them to spread & blend a little. Blotted with a paper towel, then repeated with 3-5 drops each. After misting again with water, I took a straw & blew the excess around to get the splatter effect. Let dry.
Then I used the ABC stencil from Dylusions, a sponge applicator & white acrylic paint to apply the letters here & there. Let dry.
I finished it off with some black paint applied to another stencil/mask I had on hand.
Viola! A graffiti journal page using Splash Inks!
