Fun new toys!

Some people like race cars or motorbikes or boats..me, I discover new mediums in art. For whatever reason I get very excited about a product or skill that may have been nothing to me a year before, but now it's the greatest thing ever. Remind to share my Perfect Pen Manifesto. At any rate,my latest obsession is alcohol inks. They have that vibrancy I tried to capture with stained glass, & imitation stain glass, & painting glass, all of which I either sucked at or had no patience or room for. Nope, alcohol inks are these mysterious little bottles of surprise. I have much respect for them as they operate like water colors in the sense that you cannot fully control them, but if you're patient, you can work WITH them. Ok, I'm on board. So here are my first forays into my new toy box.
