How to MINC a Scrapbook Title
Minc It Monday is here again. This is the part of the show where the Heidi Swapp Media Team creates yet another Minc inspired technique. The more I use the Minc Machine, the more ideas I discover I want to try. Especially where the Mixed Media portion of the collection is concerned.
Today’s Minc It Monday technique involves watercolor paper, Minc Reactive Paint, the Hawthorn Collection, and a digital cutting machine.
We’ll be creating a foiled title that has been cut with a cutting machine of choice.
To begin, I took a scrap of water color paper and painted it completely with Minc Reactive Paint. The paint is applied to the water color paper fairly thick. This creates the need to allow the paint to dry completely. But it also allows really good coverage of paint so that the foil reacts nicely to the paint. Minc Reactive Paint and Heidi Swapp Paint Brushes are available at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores.
After the paint has dried, the watercolor paper is cut. The numbers are ready to be foiled.
This technique creates a beautiful title for my layout. This technique can also be used with any manner of cut files to add a touch of glam and foil to any layout or paper project. The possibilities are endless.
Foiling digitally cut paper gives additional depth to a page. Not only can titles add a mixed media foiled look to a paper project like this scrapbook spread but it can be used to embellish any type of embellishment. The possibilities are endless to create custom foiled accents.
This is a great way to add just a bit of foiled flair without going too crazy.
So a couple of things to remember. If you are looking for inspiration for making the most of your Minc Machine, check in here to this blog on Mondays. Because. Minc It Monday. (click link for additional Minc It Monday posts.)
