Handmade Album Cover - Plus Giveaway!!

Hi everyone I want to share my next Arnold Grummer Project.  I made some paper for an album cover.  I used the AG kit and added some of the inclusions and some alcohol ink.  You can literally add anything into your paper mixture to get your desired look.  Awesome huh?

  35. I had bought the AG paper-making kit, but have not actually made paper with it yet. This is very inspiring. Just wondering what "inclusions" you used? Where do you buy the alcohol ink?
