creative chemistry 101 -day 3

Happy Wednesday, my friends.  It's another day of creative chemistry, an on-line class from Tim Holtz.  And I definitely had to get creative with a couple of the techniques today.  Today we did alcohol ink agates, archival resist, and reflections stamping. 

On the first technique, I used way too much ink and ended up with a muddy mess the first time.  Second and third were better, but I ended up with four tries before I was satisfied. 
For the second technique, I have a total of two colors of archival ink - jet black and sepia - not a good selection for this technique, but I decided to give it a go anyway, and I actually like how it turned out, even though it's quite a different look than what Tim had. 

For the third technique, I didn't have a stamp with backwards words, so I made a substitution with a background stamp. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you're having a great week.

Melody - I'm a fellow student 'chemist' - and I must say I totally love your tags. I'm off to the craft shop today to buy supplies so I can catch up on homework over the next couple of nights.

Gorgeous! I'm going to have to improvise some, too, but I don't think I can be as creative as you!
