We often associate the use of ink with stamps. But the use of the ink does not stop there. Its incomparable covering power, high intensity colours, its bright and varied range … such are the advantages of ink. Add a foam or hair brush to that and you have all the ingredients to explore new possibilities!
Once again, our Creative Team Members have produced pages where they have demonstrated their creativity by incorporating ink in their layouts.
Let’s see how they surprise us …
Celine used the ink colour (Terracotta) solidly to compare with the dark colour (black)of the A4 paper used. By contrast, she has been careful to use shading to give depth to the completed shape.
Then Laurence played with two coloUrs: fuchsia and black. She first applied fuchsia ink then added black ink to give depth to the pink, and also to match the black paper used. This creates a harmonious page.
In this layout, Christine decided to enhance the two photos. The ink will here play a dual role: to reduce the impact of the richly coloured paper shapes but also allow you to draw a frame.
This illustration features an enlargement so you can see the detail of the section near the butterflies. Here Muriel expended the detail of the fence in the photo with the aid of reposition tape and shading with ink.
Over the die-cut page, she drew patterns with a decorative stencil and she completed the set with the theme ‘Butterflies’ (A4 Decor stencil). Finally, she added a title using ink and an Alphabet stencil.
In this composition, Nathalie applied 3 different ink to complete the layout with a gently graduated colour.
She has also drawn flowers by applying ink with a brush using a decoration stencil. The round paper shape is also shaded to fit in with the colour theme.
With a little imagination you will create pages that will amaze those who view your albums!
