I liked what I saw in the technique junkies December newsletter on Varnished floating pearls, but I had none of the supplies to do it with. So, while playing around trying to match it, I came up with this new twist and call it varnished alcohol!
White copy/printer paper (cut to size of your project)
Simple Solution 2 (can be purchased at your local craft store)
Alcohol inks of your choice of color
Crumble up your white printer paper tightly and then flatten out. You want to make sure that there is enough wrinkles in the paper. Using a small container, mix your simple solution (about 1-2 tablespoons) with your choice of colors of alcohol inks. I used pearl in mine and it left a really nice sheen on my finished project.
Brush on your mixture with a foam brush and then let dry or heat set. Finish your project.
