As a young crafter I always loved working with inks paints and other weird materials. I love the artistic, anything can happen look inks can give a project. It’s hard to know how ink will re-act initially when you start working with a new product – and for that reason I love experimenting with it. There are many different kinds of inks available on the market today – they have grown in popularity as more and more crafters start to create their own artistic elements instead of using the pre-manufactured goods. Artistic and handmade is the new in thing ladies! Today we are playing with Mister Huey’s Colour Mist Love.
For my layout I used Mister Huey’s Ink in 3 subtle ways. I love using techniques on my layouts but like everything in life and in design the key is to know when it works. I use techniques in little subtle and interesting ways – ways that will enhance my layout and still let the focus be on my photos and the story I am telling. So for my layout I used 3 different Mister Huey’s colours and created coloured splats on my background, then I used silver Mister Huey’s together with a stencil and created a pattern on my background and lastly I used the silver to mist my cut out stars for beautiful handmade elements. On the smaller stars I used the nozzle to draw squiggles on the stars after the first layer of ink was dry. I love how it turned out.
I hope you have a better insight into the world of inks as they react on the different surfaces. The best thing is to experiment. And remember different colours will also give a different look on different surfaces.
