Australian Scrapbook Ideas – Issue 18 – Tried & Tested Mix’d Media Inx "Leaning Tower of Pisa""

 Back again with the last layout from the Mix’d Media Inx article in Issue 18 in the Australian Scrapbook Ideas magazine.  Leonii took this photo of the Leaning Tower of Pisa on her holiday overseas last year!!! This one shows the use of mixing the Mix’d Media Inx with modelling paste then used over stencils!!
I went live with my facebook page tonight and I am blown away by the response already!!!
Thank you so much everyone from the bottom of my heart!!! 🙂

Tip:  Blend your Mix’d Media Inks with modelling paste to create different coloured modelling paste. You can use the ink pads or the re inkers for this technique.
Tip:  Mix’d media Inx Blend and run easier over the top of Modelling Paste or Gesso and is absorbed more on plain paper but can still be softened and blended into the paper when spritzed with water.

Tip:  Add some sparkle to your embossing by adding a little fairy dust glitter to the  embossing  powder while it is still hot.
Tip:  Stamp and emboss a pattern on the background then ink over to create the resist technique, wipe the excess ink off the embossing with a paper towel.

This is a very special layout to me, this is my good friend Larnie! She always lit up the room with her smile and bubbly personality when she was around. Sadly we lost Larnie in a car Accident last year. I know she is always with us, will miss you always Hun. x
