alcohol ink art journal

It’s time for a new mixed media Tuesday and today I am shareing 4 alcohol ink art journal pages. Alcohol inks are a medium we usually avoid on our journal pages as it bleeds inside a book and you can’t work on a regular page. But don’t forget you can always create alcohol ink backgrounds on loose yupo paper and then just stick them inside your journal book. Today I am sharing 4 examples on how you can easily turn those backgrounds into pages in just a few steps.
