A post about colormixing, for Paper Artsy this time!
That can be very messy, but o SO fun!
I did a tutorial on mixing colors; not just different colors but also different mediums; Fresco Acrylic Paints and Infusions.
I’ve used the gorgeous Hot Picks stamp collection!
First I’ll show a step-by-step on the backgrounds, then all six cards.
Step One: Add two tiny dots of Fresco Acrylic Paint Snowflake and Beach Hut onto a round 8” gelliplate. Mist with a tiny bit of water. Brayer it over the entire plate. I chose to not mix the colors that well.
Step Two: Sprinkle a tiny bit of Royal Blood Infusions onto the plate; additionally mist with a tiny bit of water. Brayer over it in one direction until you are satisfied with the mixing of it.
Step Three: Now for the fun part: pull a print.
Additionally brayer all the inky goodness from your brayer onto cardstock.
Step Four: Add some stamping to it, and assemble to a card.

Now for the other 3 cards:
It's so easy to do! Just go play!
TIP - To get a crisp stamped image on surfaces with acrylic on it, is difficult sometimes. When stamping on these backgrounds see to it that you are able to stamp multiple times with a stamping tool. I've made my own.
The sky is the limit here, right?!
Hope you can use this as inspiration to create your own unique projects!
