Anything Goes Blog Hop

Welcome to the Anything Goes Blog Hop celebrating the one year Blog Birthiversary of our hostess Stephanie from Once upon a Paper. You should have come here from Michele from www.michelegreen.com. If not, you can start at the beginning of the hop at Once upon a Paper. Stephanie is celebrating her Blog Birthiversary with Seven Days of Giveaways so make sure you check it out each day for the next week.

 I have created an album for my daughter.  It is an album of the Taylor Swift concert we saw together this summer.  I felt that a couple page spread would not do it in our family album...so I decided to create an entire book.

One thing new was  using the Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks and blending solutions.  I created all the little flowers, etc. throughout the book.
It was really fun to experiment.  I didn't really know how to use them...but watched a couple of videos on YouTube and just tried it. I used glossy cardstock paper for the ink and then stamped images in archival ink.

Ok...I know these are sideways...but I couldn't get them to flip...I tried and tried...it is driving me nuts. 
I used the Hannah Montana Cricut Cartridge for this cute guitar. Sorry about it being upside down.Somebody tell me how I flip them.
These flowers were made using the inks...just used a slightly different ratio of colors.  I then stamped them with archival ink.  I love the Rock and Roll stamp.  I added a dew drop in the center of each flower.
Here is the guitar again...and I just added dew drops around the base. 
Outline of the guitar.

Obviously I am not going to post the entire album.  I hope if you have not tried using the alcohol inks you give it a try.  They were really fun. My daughter loved the album and will always have this to remember the fun we had that night.
