Art play date with Amy

Amy wanted some creative time today so I suggested working with alcohol ink- easy and instant gratification and making matchbox dolls.

We headed out to Lowe's to get 16 cent tiles to create coasters and get some little match boxes.

I gathered up all the stuff and we spread out on the dining room table and made these cool coasters and dolls. Lots of fun! We plan on making more tomorrow :)

Our whimsical matchbook dolls

My alcohol ink coasters

The coating reacted with the ink. I'd choose something different next time.

Another color combo

love these colors

Amy's color choices for her tiles.
So fun to have a crafting partner today! Happy New Year's Eve!

How nice for you two !! Jealous! Love the tiles, do you seal them after and if you do what do you use? I love the matchbox art too. Happy New Year!!
