Sneak peek alert! Opposite a squid journal page (video on sunday!) I used the paper to cut out little swatches of the ink sprays I have, because it's nice to be able to see what a bottle is holding without having to pull each one out to examine it. I'm sure pretty much everyone does this, which really makes me wonder: why don't companies put colour labels on the top of the lid? I suppose they expect the bottles to be stored single file on long, narrow shelves that (for some) must wrap around the room? For me, twenty is already quite a bit. And two of them I don't much use because they are just too intense and leeching.
That is a gorgeous teal. Come to think of it, I don't use the ink sprays as often as I used to. What happened there? Less art journaling, I guess. It's hard to work ink sprays into a watercolour painting. I love the shimmer effect, though.
Another demotivator is when I'm filming a page or something, and I'm trying to be efficient with my time, and I reach for a spray and the nozzle doesn't even work. I'm pretty sure my newest and most prized gold ink spray is already dead because Lindy Stamp has such issue with the clogging nozzles. Is it the mica? Is there a trick to preventing this? How about fixing it?
Any tips on how to repair clogged ink nozzles would be greatly appreciated!
