Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Alcohol Ink Organization

So doing this workshop with Tim Holtz made me realize that I do not use my Alcohol Inks as much as I like.... WHy? When playing with them I love them...

I can't see the colors-! "Ding" the light went on and I remembered somewhere on Tim's site how he organizes his inks.

So I am passing this on as well.

What you will need:
*I used the Adirondack Alcohol Ink cardstick in Gloss Finish By Ranger.
*Normal office hole punch
*Alcohol Inks
*Glue Gun

Drop ink in various places on your paper.
Let Dry. Really a few seconds.
Punch out colors with hole punch.
Glue on tops of inks.


  1. This is a great idea! I also made little punched colors to put on top of the handles on each of my blending tools, that I keep in my spinner. That way I can quickly grab the blue one, or the yellow one and now have to check the bottom. :)

    1. Whooo Hooo....
      Thanks for that IDEA. More things to organize.
