I’ve got a new art journaling tutorial to share with you, it is over on the Blitsy blog and it is quite colourful!
But that is ok, because we all LOVE colour don’t we? Oh yes! We can never have too much colour in our lives don’t you think? I do hope so because I’ve gone all out with my colour for this week’s Blitsy tutorial using refill ink. You know the little bottles you get to refill your ink pads? Yep, they are the ones!
I don’t know about you but I get those little bottles and use them to fill up my ink pads but the rest of the time they can just sit in a box. Well, they are going to sit in that box no longer now! It’s a great way of making the products you buy really work for you! I’ve used them with gel medium and tissue paper but you can see all the details over on the Blitsy blog in my ‘How To Make an Art Journal Page With Refill Inks’ blog post.
Hopefully, I will persuade you to use your ink refills too if you aren’t already! I’ve also used refill inks with gelatine plates for monoprinting before and they are quite good for adding colour to mediums if you are looking for some more ideas on how to get the most from them.
So what about you? Do you use your ink refills for? Have you used them for something other than refilling your ink pads? Do let me know!
