Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 4

Good day from a sunny Holland!
Ellie Knol here today.

I decided to make backgrounds with Minx Shimmering Inks, on all types of paper.
It is really easy, and relaxing to do while enjoying the sun…

****

I’ve been on vacation for a week… (more to come)
and did take some crafty stash with me, of course.



On an old table: using a bucket of water and paper, and of course … Minx,
I created a whole bunch of backgrounds.

I did not need a heattool to dry them, the sun did the drying for me.

****

Today I show you what I’ve made with the backgrounds that started as just plain old white paper.

For more information please see the
Snapguide I created ..
Check out How to Make Shimmery Backgrounds With Minx by Art Anthology on Snapguide.//snapguide.com/load-embed.js

I hope that I have inspired you to create something pretty today and play even when you’re on vacation. You can add the final touches when back at home. 

Next time I’ll show the ones that had some white heat embossing, gesso and acrylic paint on it before coloring with Minx. 

 Have a play and show it to us on our Facebook group Art Anthology’s Adventures in Art !

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
SEE you next time!

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!

Fairy Mixed Media Canvas

Hey Crafty Friends Phyllis here today to share with you my latest Mixed Media Canvas!

I wanted to use pastel colors this time with some fun Art Anthology products!

Most of my projects aren’t planned and I really don’t have any idea how it’s going to turn out.  I usually start out with figuring out a color combo and then go from there!

Art Anthology dimensional paints and sprays are so much fun to create with,  I love the texture of the dimensional paints and of course love the glitter for a touch of sparkle!

I used Art Anthology’s Such a Drip Stencil for interest and texture using MUD texture paste!

I hope you are inspired to try some Amazing Art Anthology products!  They are so fun to create with!

I also have a Snapguide tutorial below so you can see how I created the background for this Mixed Media Canvas!
