My project comes after a learning experience. Please set aside your beverage.
I was given a set of alcohol inks a while back, and I haven't ever used them. When I picked up some glass ornaments for Christmas I thought to myself hey....I have those alcohol inks! I should try doing that. So I bought some mixative as well, and briefly looked at tutorials and chose one that recommended compressed air for fast drying. Now here comes the learning experience...each individual item I was working with said "use in a ventilated space". But hey, I said to myself, my Zip Dry glue says that too and it's not a problem.
Drip some AI into the ball. Drip some mixative in. (Realizing after the fact that no, I'm leaving that out when I attempt this again). Spray compressed air. Ooooh, look, the ink moves around! Ok, this is cool. Drip in some more ink, spray more air...keeping it going, keeping it going, and then suddenly I kind of come to, leaning over in the chair, and thinking um, I don't feel right.
No ventilation = huffing
I have cut myself, burned myself, bruised myself when the cuttlebug crank slipped and knocked me on the arm....but I have never (well, HAD never) accidentally gotten high while crafting.
Alrighty, you can have your beverage back now :)
Plan B involved tucking small quilled pieces and die cuts into the glass ball, which was accomplished without incident. I'd like to try a snowflake inside one!
Hard to get a very good picture - the bells are hung from embroidery floss, the cap of the ornament put back on, and then tied to the ring to keep them from falling further inside the ball.
This challenge will be open for 2 weeks, until Sunday, January 3 - hop on over & see what the rest of the team has made!
