Fun Backgrounds with Splash Ink

Hi, it’s Tessa from How to Make Art here to show you a fun and easy technique that you can do with Splash Inks.  I love to do this technique in my art journal to create some interesting backgrounds to write or make art on top of.  I hope you will have fun trying it out!

Here’s what you will need:

*Splash Inks
*Water
*Small Atomizer/Spray Bottle for Inks
*Paper Lace Doily
*Loose Paper or an Art Journal

STEP ONE: Fill your atomizer/spray bottle with a little bit of Spash Ink at the bottom.  The Splash Inks are wonderfully concentrated and pigmented, so you won’t need to much of it to create a nice pastel color when mixed with water.

STEP TWO: Fill your bottle halfway with water.  Shake well to mix Splash Ink and water together.

STEP THREE: Arrange your doily on the page wherever you would like it to go.

STEP FOUR: Use your spray bottle with your Splash Ink and water mixture, and gently spray over the doily.  Let dry before removing the doily.

You will be left with the pretty edge patterns from the doily!  So much fun to work on top of…  Here is the finished piece, ready for art or writing:

Happy creating,
Tessa
