Hi Serena,
Love seeing the inspiration behind these pieces. I'm especially fond of 'Coming Through'. Tell me, what is an Acrylic/Re-inker? Thanks for popping by my blog :)

Serena Barton said...

Ruth, re-inkers were originally designed for adding ink to stamp pads. I use them with acrylic glaze medium to make a rich colored paint.

My book coming out in spring 2013 from North Light will show lots of examples of this.
