fun foil techniques
Hello and welcome back! I am excited to share a new layout showcasing the new Minc Toner ink and texture paste as well as that gorgeous new Green foil and the ever faithful Gold foil. If you have been following along over the last few months here on Heidi’s blog you would have seen my European travel album slowly coming together. Today I want to share my newest pages using the gorgeous products I shared above.
I’ll start with the pocket page. For my DIY minc cards I sprayed some white cardstock with some yellow and mint ColorShine and allowed it to dry. I then used a stamp from my Stash – that fun Tim Holtz architecure stamp as well as the Toner ink to stamp onto to the dried cardstock. Once dry I ran it through my Minc machine with some of the new Iridescent Green foil.
I then trimmed the cardstock to 3×4 and slipped them into the pockets. I added in trimmed down 3×4 pieces of pattern paper from the Art Walk collection into the other pockets and embellished with Art Walk definition stickers. Super quick and easy!
On the large 9×12 photo I added that gold sticker from the Storyline Chapters collection and more of the Definition stickers.
Turning the page you can find a 9×12 piece of Art Walk pattern paper. I ran it through my typewriter for my journaling and then my sewing machine for added texture before adding on my title using letter stickers from the Art Walk Project Pad.
Next I created a clear overlay using one of the Art Walk stencils and the Minc Texture paste. I laid the stencil over a piece of acetate from my stash and then ran some of the texture paste over the stencils. I also flicked some of the Minc mist over the acetate and I allowed it to dry and ran it through my Minc with some Gold foil.
I love how it shines and changes color as the clear acetate is lifted.
To complete the spread I added 3 4×6 photos into a pocket page that I trimmed down. I added in some of the Art Walk thicker numbers to the photos to help tell the story.
Adding small elements of Minc Foil really adds so much interest and texture without the bulk. Such and easy and fun way to embellish any project!
