an elegant mess






Have you been to Tim's blog today? He made a video on how to do this technique. I was so inspired that I dashed off to the store to get some canned air. It's the stuff they sell to clean out the crumbs in the computer keyboard. Well, of course the drug store that charges $4.99 for it was out, then off to Radio Shack next door where they had one can left for $7.69. I had more fun than you can imagine with my can of air. I'm sure I overpaid for it, but that's how it is when you live in a tiny community. I'll be looking for more at the dollar store. I need to include this technique in my next alcohol inks class.

I watched the video today. I'm wondering could you blow with a straw like we do with paint at preschool? Love the look you acheived.
