I have been playing with inks and bleach these past couple of days and if you remember the stone rubbing I did on a piece of Tissutex which has been dyed black - well I decided to bleach it but it took it back to white - bit boring - so I sprayed it with Long John Silver moonshadow Mist - the walnut ink in it shows quite well.
I rather like the reverse said as well. One thing I discovered - the bleach bottle I got out of the cupboard had no smell and did nothing - had a close look and discovered the date was 2003 - obviously that was the last time I did bleaching stuff - easily fixed though with a trip to the supermarket. A word of warning with bleach - always work with ventilation.
I also did a rubbing on a black paper napkin - remember I collected quite a few in NZ - and then I bleached that - I like this effect very much.
We have finally sent out the newsletter - just a wee tad late and apart from the few people who can't open theirs - for some reason the link vanishes for some people - I have managed not to stuff it up this time.
Here is St Arnaud Lodge where we went for our morning coffee so that I could
check the emails and read the news.
