1: When using ink to blend, use a piece of dry kitchen roll over the main design to help stop smudges.
2: Mix different patterns with the same colour tones to create unusual combinations
3: Try Embossing patterned paper and inking the embossed areas, to create texture on your creations.
4: Quote: Be creative with patterns, inks and embossing to create different looks, incorporate old book pages for layering to projects for a unique look.
