Off the Page with Karan!

Happy Monday to all of our crafty friends!  Karan here today to host the blog for you.

I know you know, how much I really enjoy the Powder Puff chalk inks from Quick Quotes. I'm always looking for a new way to use them (since I have all the colors, of course I'm looking for new ways to use them!).

In my last video, I blended them with water, then mixed with acrylic paint, this time, I thought I would use them directly on a gesso'ed surface. SO, using 6 colors that I thought would work well together, here is what I came up with.

I have to say how thrilled I am at how this background turned out! I love it and will be using this technique again and again.
