Compendium of Curiosities #15

Here's my colorful piece for this week's Compendium of Curiosities challenge. Alcohol ink agate on grunge is the technique, and I was so surprised how bright and brilliant this technique was when done on grungeboard. I think I expected a more toned-down and subdued feel based on the book pictures. All my pieces (except the metal button) are grungeboard scraps cut into various shapes. My magenta flower piece is alcohol inked tissue tape inspired by a post on Wendi Vecchi's blog Studio 490

The is beautiful, Penny! I love the clear, vibrant colors you used, and the simple-but-elegant design really allows the agate technique to take center stage. I love how you alternated the grungeboard textures, and the inked tissue tapes looks awesome! This would make an incredible and inspiring wall hanging!

Very textural. I never thought AI's could look so vivid mixed with grungeboard.
