VIDEO: How To Use Reinkers In Your Art Journal

How to use reinkers in your art journal, with a video by Kim Dellow

I am a big fan of getting the most out of your supplies, which I am sure you have guessed by now if you are one of my long term followers! So this week I thought I would get my Distress Reinkers out and use them to add colour to an art journal page. I mean there are just so many ways that you can use them aren’t there?

So my video today is a process video showing how I put this page in my junk journal together. If you look closely you can see that I’m working on a textured surface. I think you can see more of the texture in the close-up photo below. Now, if you have ever tried to stamp on a textured surface then you will know how fraught with stamping fails it is! So I have also shown how I stamp using the MISTI on an art journal page. MISTIs aren’t just for cardmaking and scrapbooking you know!
