Bleedthrumanade Recipe Tutorial

I've had a couple of requests lately for instructions for doing a bleedthrumanade.

I think the bleedthrumanade process is simpler than people expect it to be, and I hope this makes it clearer--I'm simply taking advantage of the fact that color from alcohol markers shows up on the back of page, lol!

Here are the completed pages, so you can see them better.


  1. I didn't know you could do both sides. I always made a copy of the back of the paper with the bleed through on it and tangled that. Well, this will save paper!! Thanks Sandra!

  2. Well, copying would work too, if especially if you were tangling with a pen that might bleed-thru. Since I mostly tangle in journals, tangling on the back works well.

    Glad the tutorial helped!

  3. OMG, how funny is this, well not your art, but I have been looking at your blog for months and never associated the name here with Sandra in FB/Artists journal group.

    I love all your tangles.

  4. I get that a lot, lol! I wish I had started Facebook with the molossus or LifeImitatesDoodles name, but I didn't realize how much I'd be doing there.
