Altered Book and Inktense Blocks

In this workshop see how Linda uses Inktense Blocks to add colour to her altered book.

Creative Colouring

In this workshop see how you can use Inktense pencils to delicately colour any black and white fabric. Enhance the fabric with carefully placed colour for perfect results.
