Playing with Minx shimmering inks!

Hi, Ellie Knol again, and you may have noticed that the Design Team of Art Anthology is featuring the Minx shimmering inks lately.

So, I will be featuring them today as well.
They are great to make backgrounds for cards or maybe for an art journal page (or a canvas, or a watercolor painting etc etc).
For now : 4 different ways to use the inks.
.. .. I hope to do some more in near future!

Art Postcards With Yupo Paper and Minx

Hi creative peeps! Kathy Adams here to share my project using Minx Shimmering Inks.  Yupo is synthetic paper, machine-made in the USA of 100% polypropylene. It has a non-absorbent surface, is waterproof, stain-resistant, and extremely strong and durable.  I tried a few techniques and learned a few things along the way. Yupo and Minx Art Postcards11

I love the idea of an art postcard to share with the world.  Since the Yupo paper is quite thin, I mounted the finished cards onto white card stock and stamped the back to make them post card ready.  Yupo and Minx Art Postcards1

Sun Printing With Minx

Kathy here today to share a summer project.  I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but here in South Carolina it is HOT and HUMID! I’ve wanted to try sun printing but everything I’ve read about it requires special transparent fabric paints.  This got me thinking that maybe Minx would work. They are transparent and very fluid but also very pigmented.  So I experimented with some scraps of canvas and it worked great.

Since it’s close to Independence Day, July 4th, I thought I’d use red, white and blue and create something patriotic.

SunPrint3

July 4th Banner With Minx

Sun printing can be created using fabric or paper. It requires saturating the material with water, adding color, adding a mask of some sort, then letting it all dry in the hot sun. Here is how I made my July 4th banner.

You can see how I created my banner here:
Check out How to Sun Print With Minx Inks by Kathy Adams by Art Anthology on Snapguide.
SunPrint2

Play around with this technique using different colors and different shapes.  Mix similar colors together. Try using Colorations Sprays.  Involve the kids! Don’t forget to share your results on our Facebook page, Art Anthology Adventures in Art.  I have another sun printing project on Melissa Frances’ blog using Minx, canvas, mixed media paper, and laser wood embellishments.

Layout “Sky is the limit” by Anna Komenda

Hello AA fans. It’s Anna here with some summer inspiration. I played with Colorations Sprays and I created a layout. I was inspired by picture I took during our visit at my parent’s house. They live in the countryside and the sky often looks fabulous there. So crisp and blue till the green horizon.

DSC_9130 DSC_9139

As I mentioned, I played with Colorations Sprays. I sprayed the background with three shades of blue using circle as a stencil.

DSC_9110

I left the white circle in the middle of the blue circles but I also wanted to add white clouds. I didn/t have a proper stencil so I created one by myself. I used texture paste to create the clouds.

DSC_9117

I added a pinch of yellow and I created three colors palette: white, blue and yellow as a sun.

DSC_9125

The title just jumped into my head. I feel free and wild when I look at the sky and distant horizon. It gives my such a great power to deal with the daily routine.

I also created a process video for You.

Thank You for stopping by and see You in two weeks 🙂

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.
