MIX42 Heavy Metal (11/15/13)
4 Attachment(s)
Challenge Title: Heavy Metal
Hostess: Jeanne S
Keyword: MIX42

Hello and welcome to the Mix-Ability challenge! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!
Your projects can be any type – cards, scrapbook layouts, art journal projects, 3D pages.

My challenge today is to use any aluminum foil or self adhesive foil tape and acrylic paints along with chipboard (or die cuts). I used die cuts made from a used priority mail box for my shapes and foil tape for my project.

1. Gather some chipboard shapes or die cuts.
2. Glue them onto a piece of cardstock.
3. Adhere foil (spray adhesive works well) or foil tape on top of shapes.
4. Use a ball stylus (nothing sharp) or even the edge of a piece of cardboard to help nudge your foil around your shapes.
5. Add black (or dark) acrylic paint around your shapes (wipe off excess with a paper towel before it dries) to add even more dimension.
6. You can stop there or add some color with more acrylic paints on the background or shapes. I like to let some of the foil show through at the end.

I absolutely loved this when we did it as a TLC a while back, so I will definitely be heading up to my attic after work! Thanks, Jeanne, a great challenge.

Interesting challenge, Jeanne. I've used foil before(but rarely), but never with this particular technique. Thanks.

Thanks again!!

This is a neat technique, but I need some personal training. Here is my attempted bookmark .

Here is my first attempt at on of the mix-ability challenges. I wish I had found this sooner.

Paper Pleats and Ribbon Roses: Snow Flake Fun - Mixability Challenge #42

I don't know why but I am very confused about how to post to different galleries on SSC. I want to add this to the Mix42 gallery but don't know how and also feel as though I am not doing this correctly. Any help?
