Shimmer and Shine…. 

Lisa here with my first post for 2017 on the blog… Happy New Year…. starting my scrapping this year I have had some fun playing with The Minc Machine again. I last used at the GoGo Getaway in October as we completed a class creating our own toner ink to place through a stencil and make a peony flower…

We also had fun with glimmer mist painting on vellum leaving such a pretty glitzy water colour effect.


With the LO above I have used the Minc Machine creating the “Grow” title and adding some shine to the frame placed over the photo. You will be able to see the colours clearer in the close up below as I have been struggling with the present “wintery daylight”….


I have a toner pen and was so excited as wanted to add lots of journaling on the page with “Lorax and Dr Seuss” key words… however, one I had loaded the pen with the toner ink as directed the nib had lost its fine nib and become quite wide for which I struggled to get even coverage as I was writing. I was so pleased that I had planned and was testing it out but disappointed that I can’t really use the pen as I planned. Have you had a play with any of the toner based products… we would love to see what you create.
