Watch a Video on How to Create a Stunning Mixed Media Layout

by Mischelle Smith

This month is all about gorgeous Delicata inks. These shimmery, delicious inks gave me an opportunity to work with soft palette … something very difficult for me (I LOVE vibrant and bold color). I challenged myself to try and create a journal layout that whispered to me… instead of slapping me in the face with the energetic colors I adore. This truly was a challenge and made me so happy for stepping outside my box.

What a Beautiful World with Delicata

What a Beautiful World with Delicata

You Make the World Beautiful Handmade Card by Alison Heikkila

Hello! In August, Imagine introduced 6 new Delicata colors, and today I am using some of them. I absolutely LOVE these inks. They have the most beautiful glimmer to them. My card uses stamps from the Hero Arts “You Are Loved” stamp set. I love this set because of all of the beautiful messages it has, but also because a portion of the proceeds goes to an anti-bullying campaign.

This card is easy to make. I started with the globe by stamping Smooth Bristol Paper with VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black and embossing. Color the globe with 2 different Brush-Tip Fantastix and apply the Emerald Green Delicata Ink for the land and Sapphire Blue Delicata Ink for the ocean. Heat set with heat tool.

On a piece of vellum, I stamped the sentiment with Ruby Red Delicata, heat set and diecut with a large frame. Then I swiped Champagne Delicata Ink across black cardstock in a horizontal arc. From here it is all about putting all the pieces together. I added sparkly washi tape, stars from the same stamp set with Celestial Copper Delicata Ink, the globe and irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer.

Just look at all of that fantastic shine!

Change the World using Rose Gold by Neva Cole

Change the World using Rose Gold by Neva Cole

Personally I really like Rose Gold, my iPhone just happens to be this color! It was fun to create a card that features this fabulous color. To highlight the Rose Gold color, the card is a clean and simple design. The images are stamped in Delicata Rose Gold and Black Shimmer first to help determine the placement of the line of pressure embossed dots. The dots were inked using a Fantastix Brush point and the Delicata Rose Gold ink. The base card is inked with crumpled aluminum foil and Delicata Rose Gold. The top panel is adhered and the simple but sophisticated card is ready to be sent to a friend!

Do you Love all the New Colors of Delicata?

by Renee Zarate

Most mixed media artists have many separate art journals for different projects or products, depending on the type of art work that they do. I love the Delicata inks so much, I needed a journal specifically for experimenting with all of the Delicata inks! It is fun to decorate art journals with other unused experiments or bits and bobs of supplies left over from other projects. When using up the leftovers not only does it produce an interesting project but it also prevents waste and hoarding. This one is pretty enough to set out on a coffee table for guests to look through.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 2 hours + dry time

Directions


Step 1

To begin, paint the cover of a Strathmore Mixed Media paper art journal with black Gesso and allow to dry. Cut a piece of navy blue card stock to measure 4 ½” by 6 ½”. Cut a second piece of the same paper to measure 6 ¾” by 5”, set this aside. Take the smaller piece of the navy paper, choose a stencil with a lot of open space and use a palette knife to apply a small amount of Creative Medium Iridescent paste. Let dry.


Step 2

With a small dauber for each separate color of Delicata ink, apply Rose Gold, Emerald Green, Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue and Golden Glitz onto the stenciled panel. Blend the inks while applying. Dry with heat tool.


Step 3

Using Tear It Tape, mount the stenciled, inked panel onto the larger piece of navy card stock, then black cardstock, cut to measure 5 ¾” by 8 ½”. Adhere entire panel to the note book.


Step 4

Choose different elements to adhere to the cover panel using a strong adhesive. The spoon has been decorated with Delicata Rose Gold ink applied with a Fantastix, sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder and melted with a heat tool. Stamp Rose Gold polka dots around the navy panel and add ribbons to the spiral binding. The metal roses have been enhanced with Delicata Rose Gold, Silvery Shimmer and Ruby Red inks. It is easy to get into the tight spots by using the pointed end of a Fantastix. By using a separate Fantastix for each color it eliminates the risk of contaminating the ink pad with other colors. White ribbon for the binding can be colored with ink from the Delicata pads to keep everything in the same color scheme.

See How to Make Your Own Shimmery Eclipse Scrapbook Layout

by Neva Cole

the Great American Eclipse Scrapbook Layout with Delicata ink

I will admit, the Great American Eclipse truly lived up to all the hype and expectations. We are fortunate to live very close to the zone of totality and were able to enjoy an experience of a lifetime! There were many amazing photos taken on this date, and I was able to take a few myself. I am surprised that my totality photo of the corona resembles the others taken across the United States. Knowing I would create a scrapbook layout to commemorate the event, I planned ahead and had everyone sign on a section of white cardstock. Totality was so stunning I wanted to create the same look and feel of nature and the new Delicata Ink colors were absolutely perfect! This is a super easy background to create for your own eclipse photos, or the technique could be used for any layout that needs an ethereal sky backdrop!

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes + dry time

Directions

Goose Bumps bottle and gently take the clear texture medium over the top half of the Bristol Board
Step 1

Trim Strathmore 100lb Bristol Board to 12” x 12”. Bristol Board is absolutely the best for this technique as it will stand up to a heavy application of Ink Potion No. 9 and ink blending with Jumbo Daubers. Remove the spray applicator from the GooseBumps bottle and gently tap the clear texture medium over the top half of the Bristol Board. Set aside to dry.

Apply Delicata in Champagne with a Jumbo Dauber
Step 2

Mist the bottom section of the paper with Ink Point No. 9. Apply Delicata in Champagne with a Jumbo Dauber.


Step 3

Repeat with Ink Potion No. 9 and Delicata in Pink Shimmer. It is starting to look like a sunrise!

Delicata in Sapphire Blue
Step 4

Mist the top portion of the paper and ink with Delicata in Sapphire Blue. If one area is a bit darker than desired, add a bit of Ink Potion No. 9 to the craft mat and pick up with the Jumbo Dauber. The smooth surface of the Bristol Board is very forgiving and allows the inks to blend beautifully. Notice the GooseBumps will now resemble the stars that were visible during totality!

Delicata in Black Shimmer
Step 5

Determine placement of journal block and blend Delicata inks accordingly on the section of Bristol Board that was trimmed off the original size. Print journaling directly on the Bristol Board. For my layout with the signatures, I gently blended the inks over the signatures. We used a permanent pen so the ink did not bleed. Ink the edges with Delicata in Black Shimmer. Ink a section of black cardstock with Delicata Black Shimmer, this will give just a hint of shimmer to match the rest of the layout. Die cut the title and adhere. Adhere your selected eclipse photos and sit back and admire and remember this event of a lifetime!
