Aluminium foil, coffee filters and inks

Dear Bloggers,
I signed up for the wonderful 'Life Book' classes and watched a video of Christy Tomlinson creating a gorgeous art journal page using aluminium foil, sprays and coffee filters.  I then had a dabble and experiment with these materials.  I was not very happy with my results but I believe the technique has lots of potential - even if I haven't personally seen it yet!!!
Here is a photographic journal of my playing.

 Use gel medium to glue the filters to the foil.

  1. Hi Jenny. I have only just found your blog and I love what you create! I especially love the art journal pages. These are very dog-eared in my copy of Scrapbook Creations!

  2. I think we are often critical of our own work...because I love these Jenny - very impressive. I particularly love the last one.
