Creative Chemistry 101 Day 3

I completed only two of the three tags for this lesson.  My elderly mother is staying with me, and my craft room is next to her bedroom. Although I work in the kitchen, I still have to go back and forth for supplies.  Too noisy. Besides, I would have to dig for a Texture Fade used for the third tag.  I'll do it later.

I learned some new things in this lesson:  why Tim's stamps are always "dirty," and that I have some archival inks that aren't the standard archival dyes, so Brilliance inks can be substituted for what I don't have.  

Alcohol Ink Agates Technique     and     Archival Resist Technique
