Inky Mojo Starter with Izink Inks!

by | July 2nd, 2015 | Comments Off on Inky Mojo Starter with Izink Inks!



If I’m ever in a creative rut or my mojo decides to take a vacation (this happens often!), I tend to whip out a tag and start applying color or stamping to get the creative juices flowing.  This tag started out that very way!  I grabbed a couple of bottles of Aladine Izink Inks and ColorBox® Archival Dye Inks and just started having fun!


I began by priming the tag with a layer of gesso; this helps with absorption and allows more time to play with the inks.  Once the gesso dried, I randomly stamped text to the background using ColorBox® Archival Dye Ink in “Seattle Sky and Wicked Black.”  I’ve said it before, but it’s worth mentioning again, I love using the Archival Dye Inks in mixed-media because no matter what medium I apply thereafter, the images aren’t going anywhere!  With such a large array of colors in these inks, you can’t go wrong with this stash staple! I stamped the camera stamp using “Wicked Black” overlapping the images to create depth and visual interest.  After a quick blast of the heat gun, I applied water diluted Izink Inks in “Topaz and Safran.”  Once the inks were dried, I finished off the tag with a little gesso and word stickers!

Go ahead, grab a tag and get those creative juices flowing!  Thanks for stopping by!

About Suzanne Austin

Hi!  My name is Suzanne Austin.  I’m a SAHM of 3 kiddos living on the Gulf Coast in Alabama.  I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 17 years and counting!  I began scrapping shortly after the birth of our son, and like most haven’t looked back!  It wasn’t hard to become completely immersed in scrapbooking-the process, the art, the design-I am still in awe of the talent that’s showcased in this industry.  My style is pretty versatile (and still ever evolving), but I tend to lean toward the mixed-media and inky side of scrapping.  My motto: Just do it!  I love experimentation with new ideas and techniques. I tend jump in head first-no regrets. I love the enrichment (and therapy :D) this hobby has to lend.  I’m beyond excited to rub elbows with our talented Creative Team for yet another term!
