Safely home from MD and now for something completely different. Sumi Smoosh was named by one of my students some years ago during a class. This post and the accompanying videos are from June 2010. So here ya' go: Sumi Smoosh with Vellum let's get to it!
The YouTube videos are linked at the end of the post.
White Vellum Paper (you can use other types of paper)
Plastic folder, or sheet that you can fold
Inks: 2 colors and a metallic (or what you have on hand)
Spray inks or spray bottles (1 per color, I use Ranger's Mini-Misters)
If you don't have the spray bottles you can just drop some ink onto the plastic sheet
Brayer (or just rub your hand over the plastic to move it around)
alcohol, needle and thread, tapes
First open up your plastic folder (clear plastic) and drop or spray some inks in like so:
Now, close the plastic folder and rub or brayer the ink around, like this
Here: I used one of the pages in my journal. I sewed it in at the top of the page (could have stapled, taped, brad-ed, eyelet-ed, paperclipped). I used a Black Sharpie and a White Sharpie here as well as washi tape.
Have a great weekend everyone! xo Diana
