Flying With My Niji!

Hi everyone,
So glad you're here!! I've been busy letting my muse run wild in my art journal lately and wanted to share. I love paint and paper so decided to show you what I created for a challenge using my Dylusions Spray Ink, water colors and my Niji Water  Brush.

I love using my Niji  to paint and shade my faces. It makes it so much easier than constantly having to re wet my brush.

I can also combine it with my Dylusions Spray Inks to create the perfect drips and splashes.

  And finally, I also love to finish my art by using my Niji along with some black inktense for shading around my images after I paint them. It works great for that dimensional effect.
Oh! And have you  ever had those times when that small corner or spot on your collage image just didn't quite stick? Well, believe it or not I even use my Niji to put my matte medium in to fix those crazy hard to reach spots .
 But PLEASE NOTE!!:::::::: if you do this you MUST RINSE YOUR BRUSH AND RESERVOIR OUT Thoroughly in hot soapy water before it dries!
 I typically keep my older Niji's just for this purpose. You can find the Niji Water Brushes  here just by clicking on the link. !!!  Don't forget the Niji Water Color paints and your favorite Dylusions spray Ink!! Well, time to go hope you all are enjoying your day and I look forward to sharing with you again next month. In the mean time get out your Niji and let Your muse "Fly High".

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
