Mixed Media Fun #1: India Ink

Howdy friends! I am so excited to share this new series of videos with you: Mixed Media Fun! Each lesson will focus on a different technique or supply. I will be working in a Canson Mixed Media pad for this series of videos. I chose this pad because it has 60 heavyweight 98#/160g heavily sized pages and I have been very happy with it. Today I am going to show you techniques using Bombay India Inks and Micron Pens. If you are in the market for any of these supplies please check out Oriental Trading Company, they provided me with many of the supplies I am using for this video series and they have a 110% lowest price guarantee so if you find a lower price on a product they sell they will beat their price by 10% so you will always pay less. And, if you do shop tell them Lindsay the frugal crafter sent you:) Here is the page we are going to make today.

DCF 1.0

You will also want a bucket of water handy and a few paint brushes (try synthetic ones meant for acrylic) and old toothbrush, a hunk of wax or white crayon and a few basic pattern stencils. Here is the tutorial:

I did not have time to do the lettering in this tutorial so the next tutorial will be on hand lettering. Anything goes with mixed media art journaling but I know that a blank page can be scary so these videos are designed to break the ice. I’ll hold your hand and teach you some techniques and introduce you to supplies and each week we will build on what you already know so before you know it you will be composing interesting pages all on your own! Again I want to thank Oriental Trading Company for their donation of materials for this free video series. Please share this with anyone you know who wants to explore mixed media or art journaling. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
