I created another journaling card today after discovering how to use my Ranger Distress Inks in a new way. You can check it out here at the Hero Arts Blog where they posted a video on quick coloring techniques. The distress inks technique starts at around 4:10. I have used my inks mainly for direct to paper distressing, but I never realized how I could blend them. I don’t have the Ranger blending tool, so I just used cosmetic sponge wedges and the results were similar.
Not only was I inspired by the video, I also have been inspired by the discovery of some patterned paper that I forgot I had. I recently did some organizing of my paper because I had intended to put together a donation for my son’s school. During that process, I found several great patterns!
I’m not sure how this journaling card will be used since I did not create it for any specific photos, but more as a result of my discoveries.
