Hello! My name is Kim Gowdy and I am thrilled to be featured on Clearsnap’s blog today.
I am part of the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team and there is no hiding the fact that we LOVE Clearsnap products! I was introduced to these amazing products initially through the magazine and spending time with Cathie Allan, who has taught many of our team members the differences between all the inks. Who knew all inks are not created equal? I know now!
My very favourite inks have to be Clearsnap’s Colorbox Chalk Inks. They are to paper what butter is to bread! I have chosen to work with them on this simple layout I created for this blog post.
I used this fun “splatter” Art Screen to mask where I wanted my patterns and colours.
With a piece of painter’s tape and some post-it notes I began the process of applying my Colorbox Chalk inks. I use a foam applicator to distribute the ink; it gives me control in detail areas of the Art Screen.
I LOVE how the splatters turned out! The colours are soft yet vibrant. It’s the starting point to my very easy layout!
Next, I used some iZink [caviar] on a toothbrush to make some little splatters throughout my page.
Easy, peasy…DONE! Not only do I LOVE how this page turned out, I LOVE that it was so easy. Hope it inspires you to get messy with your inks!
