Alcohol Ink Coasters - Class Spotlight

Last Thursday, August 23rd, a group of creative ladies joined Nicole for an Alcohol Inks demonstration. Each person had glossy paper to practice various techniques. Once perfected, they created a set of 4 coasters. Here's a look into the class:

We went crazy over class attendee Ashley's use of alcohol inks, stamped sentiment background, and bright silver flowers (above).  

Look at those bright colors! This is a great project regardless of your age, style, or color choice! It was wonderful to see all the different ideas come to life. We had a great age range in the class... Art brought us all together!

Some students chose to make 4 completely different coasters, while others made complete sets. Above, Jasmine stamped the same images but used different alcohol ink colors. Julie created a winter scene, using Snow Cap, the only opaque alcohol ink.

Want to create your own set of coasters? Pick up glossy or matte tiles from your local hardware store. We found some at Menards for just 11 cents! You'll also need some alcohol inks. We prefer Adirondack Alcohol Inks and even carry them in our online store. At Creations Galore, we offer many classes, including Creating With Alcohol Inks, perfect for the beginner.

Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you're inspired to create!
