SOME MIXED MEDIA

Hellooeee and happy Sunday,
I am definitely in artsy mode today and my first one I would like to show is my MM journal page I started yesterday.
I had read recently someone talking about doing a resist technique with clear embossing and then ironing it off after to create a sort of Batik effect. Well - I tried having a go at that but it didn't quite come out right :-(
My background was stamped with clear embossing and then I went over it with a variety of red colours by Whisper inks.
I also used my SARNTANGLES to stamp directly onto the page.
All the images are De-Stempelwinkel and are NBUS. I also stamped some onto card and cut them out.



I think the inks I used on the bubble wrap printing layer were the wrong type cuz they didn't come off the embossing and just covered it up :-(
I dunno - maybe I'll have another go and just use the water based inks - does anyone know ???

I shall definitely be back later. Thanks for popping in and your lovely comments xxxxx

This is so beautiful! Great page Ike! I can imagine that acrylic based inks aren't useful for this technique - better to use watercolor inks - but I haven't treid out the embossing powders and ironing effect yet.
Thank you very much for joining Art Journal Journey!
Great to see you again!

this is s wonderful page! Love the stamps too. I have done the batik look but it's been a long time and I'd have to see if I still have my notes on it. As for the inks on the embossing I imagine if you used a permanent or solvent based ink you wouldn't be able to wipe it away. Thanks for joining in at AJJ!

Hello from AJJ
Your lovely page is full of interest and romance.
You make me want to try the batik embossing technique again.
It has been so many years now I forget how it goes exactly.
I think there are no mistakes and your page turned out great.

SARN said...

Wahoo . . . wonderful to see your Sarntangles in use and thanks for linking to the ideas page too. Mwah mwah.

Once you've embossed, any water-based inks used over the top should just wipe off with a light buffing motion, archival definitely won't come off, but pigment inks should if you wipe them off quickly after stamping them.

Hope that helps.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

That is a great page I think all the red dots really give it some cool texture.

I know your plan didn't turn out quite as you imagined, Ike, but your page is remarkable, nevertheless! So many fun details for the eye to linger over and enjoy! Thank you very much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10 and joining in the optional bubble wrap theme! Hugs, Darnell
