Step 1 Ink a tag directly to the paper technique using the Memento ink pad. A nice even solid layer is perfect. Step 2 Use a pipette to drops some bleach onto the tag and wait for it to react.

How to just have fun – Jowilna 101

The pressure of being creative is real and sometimes the best thing you can do is to just have fun. So the other day I had some fun using a piece of cardboard and some goodies on my table.

Well, you layer it of course – so I used some of my favourite inks to create a fun marble effect.   Step 1 Stamp the Marble stamp in Memento Luxe Gray on your background. Step 2 Clean your stamp and then ink it...
