how i love vibrant colors! especially as we walk towards the colder weather with the imminence of winter looming strongly in the background. i use colors as my therapy.
this week's documented life project challenge was to use vellum. i just happened to have recently seen a video by sara sandberg showing a technique where she blows alcohol inks on transparencies and i figured i would try it on vellum paper. and it totally worked!
you can watch the video below to find out how i did that. the pictures and supplies list are listed underneath it.
