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!

Mixed media Christmas card

Oh man ! Christmas is close by ! Have you sent your Christmas card already ? If you need an handmade card in a snap, I (Valerie) have the right project for you !

All you will need is white cardstock, some ribbon and of course Art Anthology products ! Gold, brick, clear coat, green spray and stencil… You will find the exact list at the end of this post.

Let’s see some close-ups to have a better look at the dimensions of this Christmas card…

As you can see there is 3 different layers of paints in this project : first Colorations spray with stencil, then gilded clear coat and brick stone effect for the sentiment.

Look at the creamy texture of the Gold Metal effect paint on the edge of the card ! That makes 4 differents textures in one card !

You will find the complete tutorial to create this card on the Art Anthology YouTube channel. It’s quick and easy :

Minx and Masks: Creating Backgrounds

Hi creative peeps! Kathy here today to show you a technique that I learned from an online class, Inspiration Wednesday, with Donna Downey.  In the class, she used watercolors with masks. I thought the technique would be perfect for using Minx Shimmering Inks and some of the cool masks available from Art Anthology.

Mixed Media Cards2

I used 11″ x 14″ sturdy mixed media paper to create a background, then cut it into cards and used Melissa Frances wood veneer and resin embellishments to finish them off.  Many of us don’t send cards through the mail anymore, but I’ve found that people still really love and appreciate receiving them. And it is a great way to share your art with loved ones and friends.

Simply Beautiful Flower Cards

Hello, today I would like to show you two very simple and easy flower cards. Last time, I was wondering how to use MINX in a different way than the popular splashing… I spend lots of hours on playing with them. Two of the effects I just show you today.

I needed something simple, fresh, juicy and optimistic.. I decided to paint some embossed flowers on vellum. It works really good with Minx!!

And some close up’s:

The colors of MINX mixed beautiful together on vellum.

The flowers are so light, delicate and still a little bit transparent.

Bucket List Cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today and this month we’ve been tasked to create with a bucket list in mind.  Now I can think of lots of ways to document a bucket list – a canvas, a journal, a wall hanging, etc.  But I decided to create several of my bucket list items on cards that remind me of what I want to do.

Check out How to Create Cards to Document a Bucket List by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

One item on my bucket list is to go up in a hot air balloon.  Since I had this wonderful stamp, I thought it would be appropriate for this challenge.

Another item on my bucket list is visiting Europe and specifically Paris.  So this card was not only fun to make but puts my dream of traveling to Europe up close and personal.

What’s on your bucket list?  Thanks for stopping by today.
