Notebooks with alcohol ink covers / Алкогольные блокноты / BLOG HOP

Доброе утро, друзья!
С первым днем осени вас! Сегодня в блоге Mini Album Makers стартует новое задание месяца, а заодно и блог хоп по всем блогам дизайнеров! А все потому, что в сентябре нашему супер-полезному обучающему блогу  исполняется год! Каждый из нас приготовил для вас небольшие МК, ну и призы, конечно, тоже будут :)) Читайте о них ниже. Заглядывайте в гости! И участвуйте в нашем челлендже. Как всегда вам нужно будет сделать любой блокнот или миниальбом, принимаются работы во всех техниках.
Я покажу вам сегодня сразу три блокнота на кольцах с миксмедийными обложками, которые я создала с помощью текстурной пасты, алкогольных чернил и штампов. Мини-МК по окрашиванию таких обложек вы можете посмотреть в конце поста.

ENG Dear guests! Congrats on the first day of Autumn! Today I would like to show you three notebooks with mixed media covers. I used texture paste, lots of alcohol inks, and stamps to create those. At the end of this post, you can view a small tutorial on how I color such covers. 
Please don´t forget to visit the blogs of other DT members of the Mini Album Makers challenge blog to see much more inspiring projects and tutorials! It is our Blogaversary month! And play along with us, because our September challenge is now open :)

This is what you need to create such covers:

  • a piece of cardboard (mine is 2 mm wide)
  • a piece of white cotton in the same size as the cardboard
  • some soft matte gel (or any other acrylic medium) and a brush
  • a stencil, a palette knife and a jar of white texture paste 
  • alcohol inks (I use Ranger) and a bottle of alcohol (or alcohol ink blender)
  • a heat gun in case you want to speed up the drying process
  • optional: black stamping ink, background stamps, black liner

First apply some soft matte gel (PVA, medium) onto the cardboard. Then stick the textile on top of it and cover it again with soft matte gel (primer, gesso). When the surface is dry, apply some texture with your palette knife through the stencil. Let it dry completely.



Color the surface step by step using your chosen alcohol inks. Make them flow and blend by spraying some pure alcohol or pouring special alcohol ink blender onto the surface. You can also use water but try not to wet the surface too much. Water does make the inks flow but also dims the colors somewhat when dry. 


After the surface is dry, you can add some doodling with a black liner. I draw around the texture in order to emphasize it. Then I add some text stamps (or any other background stamps) with black StazOn. In the end, I add some paint splatter using dark and white inks.

  3. Maria, these covers are so beautiful. The colors you produce with inks are so artistic and combined in a way not to muddy the hues but to keep them bright and gorgeous.

  27. Maria, I have seen alcohol inks used like this a while back and even tried it myself once, but had forgotten the magic and mystery of these wonderful inks! This post has truly inspired me to play with my few colors and see what comes up! Each of your covers is amazing! The black bases and black over stamping add such great balance to the vibrant color schemes. I continue to be inspired by your incredible work, thank you! Hugs, Autumn
