Hey, guys :)
Happy Halloween! I hope you are having a spooktacular day!

As I've mentioned, I am part of a group called "Creative Sandbox", hosted/mentored by Melissa Dinwiddie. My Monday creative prompt was 'Flow' and Weightlessness'.

Hey, everyone :)
I know I've sent you more emails than usual this week, with the exciting launch of my first eBook, Overcoming the Blank Canvas, but I hope you won't mind one more!
I almost forgot that I promised you the 2nd Alcohol Ink demo would be up this week! I want to share with you how I make the halos, or ghosty impressions, of flowers with the inks! This technique will add so much depth to your artwork! I can't wait for you to try it!
And, don't forget to share it with your friends :)

My best hope is that you will find it helpful!
