50 Shades of Greige by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new canvas. Now “greige is all the rage” and if your not sure what that is it’s a combination of the warm tones of gray with the cool tones of beige….. hence “greige”. It’s muted tones are easy on the eyes provide a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. Coupled with black or walnuts provide a wonderful cozy organic feel. 

Using only a few different products and mixing them either with whites to highlight or black to deepen allowed me to get several different shades of “greige”. Some of the canvas I would like to refer to as a happy accident. 

Art Anthology’s Stone Effect Sandstone really provided that pretty beige tone as well as texture to the project, and the Sorbet in Black Leather Jacket and Linen helped to tone down and deepen my Metal Effects Silver here and there on the canvas.

I believe the addition of the black cardboard and walnut chipboard provided a richness and gave it a more masculine feel. 

I hope I have inspired to become a chemist in your craftroom, start mixing those colors and see what you come up with. You never know you may discover the next color trending on Instagram and Pinterest. Happy creating !!!

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 2 !

Good day to you, Ellie Knol here!

Today I am featuring the Minx shimmering inks again, as promised in the post Playing with Minx shimmering inks on the 26th of November 2016.
After today I hope to do even some more in near future! I have a few more up my sleeve right now.

I’ve used the same colors for all the techniques on 3 projects.

For step-by-steps of all 6 techniques,
please see the Snapguide at the end of this post!

****

These inks are so versatile, for making backgrounds,
but also for using with bleach,

use with heat embossing as a resist,

coloring images,
watercoloring,
to stamp with,
and splattering.

in short, just PLAY with them!

What’s Baking In The Kitchen with Toni

It’s that time of year when everything is glistening, Christmas music is playing, and the smell of cookies fills your home. Today I have a fun and easy project that the children can participate in preparation for the holidays. We are going to make salt dough Christmas cookie ornaments and decorate them using AA’s Minx Shimmering Inks and Dimensional paints. dsc08684

My Christmas tree in my kitchen is decorated with all things from the kitchen, so I knew these ornaments would be perfect for the tree. Super easy, last for a life time and you won’t gain any extra holiday weight from them… (lol… their non-edible).

Using very simple ingredients that we all have in our kitchen and with help from Art Anthology’s wonderful products, these ornaments turn out really cute.

Enjoy the short YouTube video displaying more of the cookies and be sure to check out my Snapguide tutorial below for a step x step process as well as a list below with all the AA’s product that brought this project together.  Warm wishes xoxo ToniCheck out How to Make Salt Dough Christmas Ornaments by Art Anthology on Snapguide.
