Today I am showing you the Tim Holtz DIY Custom Blend Ink Pads. These are basically the Distress Ink Pads without the ink. You use your Distress Ink Reinkers to make your own custom blends. They were primarily designed to make an Ombre effect ink pad. The colour combinations you can make are limitless! I chose to do an ombre effect with Pink/Orange/Yellow. But you could easily do a dark/medium/light of any of the colours!
Here is another combination I did using Blues and Greens. I used the Simon Says Stamp Falling Backgrounds as the stamps on all of the cards. Plus the Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings for the messages. In the video I show you how to apply the ink to the pad and then I stamp a card similar to the ones in the photos.

Today I am showing you the Imagine Crafts Doodle Stix! The package comes with 5 Stix with different silicone tips. These stix are great for doodling and adding marks into paints, gesso and texture pastes! Above I applied a layer of Gesso to the page and then doodled into the Gesso. Once dry, I used the High Flow paints over the Gesso. All of the texture shows through. In the video I show you how you can use it with acrylic paint. I had a card with pink paint on the base. I then apply blue paint on top and doodle into the paint. The pink shows through the doodles.

Today I am featuring the Incite 2 Color Passions book. This book features 133 pieces of Mixed Media Art. It focuses on colour and is divided by Emotion, Composition, Memory, Process, Message and Story. There are so many fabulous photos that will inspire you in your art journaling! I personally love colour and needed to create after looking though the book. I made the page above. This is my version of a page I saw in the book. I painted the background and then cut up pieces from my collage sheets and added them to the page.
If you are wanting to use colour more in your work, then you will want to pick up Incite 2 Color Passions by Tonia Jenny.
