The Trinity Paper Arts papers are just a natural fit for ink–they have a wonderful finish that takes ink really well, plus the subdued colors are just asking for a little distressing!
I created this mixed media album for a class I taught in Texas last month and am teaching next weekend in Virginia at the Great American Scrapbook Conventions! There's still space in the classes in Virginia if you would like to join me. And, if you're not in the area, I have a select number of kits available in my etsy shop here: Mixed Media Summer Album.
On the cover of the book and on some of the pages, I dragged the edges of the pages through Clearsnap's Mix'd Media Inx in Truffle. Then I dusted them with Clearsnap's Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it — the result is a gilded edge! The Mix'd Media Inx are very “juicy” and excellent for inking the edges of pages and because they are a pigment ink, they stay wet long enough for embossing powders to be applied.
On the pages above, I applied the Mix'd Media Inx and Copper Embossing Powder but I also added a little Smooch Spritz in Navy Twinkle. On this page, it almost looks like spray from the ocean! The circles are applied with paint through Punchinella, which I will be offering my etsy shop soon!
