Creative Chemistry 103 homwork - batch 2

More colourful inkiness from me with this second installment of homework assignments for Creative Chemistry 103.

First up, an overview picture with more technique samples for days 2-5:

Day 2 - Distress Paint Resist - I discovered I want need a few light colours to be able to do this technique even more justice. 

Day 3 - Texture Paste Embossing - I used my new ARTplorations stencil for the texture paste embossing and sprinkled WOW gold embossing powder on top.

Day 4 - Distress Crayon Textured Resist revisited - I almost got it right this time. I had let the crayons dry for a couple of hours but did not heat set it, so it started to smudge when I added the distress inks. But maybe the smudging would have happened anyway, since you can see that it piled up thick along the edges of my stencil image (new to me stencil by Sheena Douglas, love it).

Day 5 - Alcohol Ink Stamped Resist on Yupo. These festive colours screamed Christmas to me, so I stamped a TH pointsettia stamp over my background. Next time I will try a Christmas tree...

Thanks for visiting!. Until the next batch!


  1. More gorgeousness!! Totally inspiring Marianne! xx

  2. As so often, I'm rolling up the field (your blog posts) from behind and have already seen all your later works... but it doesn't seem you needed any warm up at all! Great tags!
