Hello Lindy’s lovers:) It’s Asia here with my project on replacing alcohol inks with Lindy’s- part 2. As you may remember my previous project was done on Yupo papers, this time I decided to use regular photo paper.
For those of you who are on the budget or simply try to create something different, this is another, cool technique. And since Yupo paper and photo paper are different (Yupo is more plastic in touch, photo paper is less resistant and more glossy), the results of applying Lindy’s with alcohol on them also differ. For me I can see two major differences: on Yupo paper there are more “stains” of different sizes and colors, on photo paper, the stains are bigger, softer and they do have a lot, and I mean a lot of shine! The Lindy’s shine plus some more, believe me.
So let’s start the tutorial and below you’ll see the link to my step-by-step video.
I started working on glossy photo paper by spraying two pieces of it with two different combinations of colors: Prima Donna Purple, French Lilac Violet, Afternoon Delight Denim, Tears on my Pillow Tangerine, Hydrangea Blue, Magical Shaker- Oktoberfest Orange and Blazing Black.
I sprayed the color (or sprinkled it), then sprayed the alcohol and then used a small pipette also to add alcohol.
I was also adding alcohol while drying the paper with a heat gun.
Then I applied some stamping and add texture paste with stencils.
When all was dry, I cut it out to make two tags. I also cut out pieces of black paper as a base, so slightly bigger than the colored paper. After all, they are tags for Halloween, black color is needed:)
I also colored pieces of lace ribbon in black and purple, to attached to my tags later.
The last step was to add embellishments- mica flakes, Halloween ephemera, metal pieces, cabochons, etc.
The end result is really, really beautiful and since I work so much with Lindy’s products, I can see the difference when using these on different types of backgrounds. Which is great as it’s a real pleasure to be able to work with sprays and powders on so many surfaces.
