'Buried Treasure'

Over on 'The Altered Page' Seth Apter is featuring his buried treasure idea and will publish a list of participating blogs, the authors choosing their own favourite post to re post. Should be interesting.

So here is a link to a short tutorial which I wrote, on request, about using bleach on paper and I think this eventually lead to my participation in the popular Sketchbook Challenge, then to be a contributor to the book and many happy contributions to the themes for the Challenge.

So many little time. With so many wonderful art blogs to follow, it is difficult to always find the time to keep up with every new post -- let alone have the time to visit the posts that were put up before you discovered each blog.

So...six years ago I started an annual treasure hunt. Buried Treasure is about digging deep to uncover some hidden gems. The premise is simple. This Thursday, July 23rd all participating bloggers will re-post one (or more) of their favorite posts that ever appeared on their blog. As you might already know, I don't like too many rules when it comes to art. So anything goes.


  1. What a great tutorial Jackie. Definitely something I have not tried and it looks like fun to do so. I really do love your finished page - it is unique and very artistically intriguing. Thanks bunches for sharing! j.

  2. I've used bleach on various colors of cardstock and on old photos, but NEVER with ink. How nicely done. And of course, I really enjoyed the above piece, too. Far more abstract than the books on a shelf, but very fun to peruse, none-the-less. Thanks for sharing this repost.

  3. Thank you for reposting this! I like to try that soon. Your pages are just gorgeous!

    1. Thank you all for your kind response.

  4. Ahhhhh yes remember this tutorial !
    (will visit the other ones too ... if I have the time ;-) .....)

  5. I have never done this but now I want to try it!


Comments are always much appreciated. Thank you.
