Turn your paintings into a Flag!

I was playing around with Photoshop and one of my alcohol Ink paintings and I thought this would make a lovely Flag, but then I couldn't find a place that could do it until now.

I found a site called Gifts For You Now - now mind you I haven't ordered it yet, but after looking at the reviews it looks like it's a solid flag. Here is the information if you would like to try it out and please post a photo or email me, I would love to see yours and hear what you think!

If you are new to alcohol Inks and don't know what this AMAZING colorful medium is then please check out my online classes...but I"ll warn you, they are addicting! I currently have over 1600 student online plus I've taught thousands in Live classes. The online classes are step by step, you have lifetime access, and you can watch them at your own pace, and they are broken down in easy to follow steps.

Here is a list of Alcohol Ink materials to get you started in one of my classes:

  • Yupo Paper: White 74lbs or higher - size in demo is (5x7") - Again feel free to go bigger. Just note that your materials may need to adjusted.
