Thankful Feather Mixer Layout
November 29, 2016
Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share a fun layout I created using the Feather Mixer! Ever since their release, I've been drawn to the Mixers as they have a dual purpose: stencil AND embellishment! Plus, they are fun and easy to use! I'm going to show you how I created my page!
First, I began with a piece of white cardstock as my background and chose three coordinating colors of spray inks. I want to note that I used the Feather Mixer as a stencil WITH the protective film...just be sure to have some paper towels handy! This way you can wipe off the Mixer in between colors! Next, I placed the Mixer on my page in different positions and lightly misted with each ink. Again, you will want to wipe off your Mixer in between colors.
While allowing my background to dry, I moved on to coloring the Mixer itself. First remove the protective film from both sides and lay onto a protective mat or paper towel. I chose three different colors of alcohol ink along with the gold mixative to give it some shine.
One of my favorite things to do is to simply add drops of alcohol ink directly onto the acrylic! This allows the colors to spread and you can experiment with how you want your acrylic to turn out!
Here is the finished result! Once dry I added my Mixer to the side of my photo along with other die cuts and stickers.
I used my Silhouette to cut my title using some dark brown cardstock.
Here, you can see a close up of one of the negative images created with the Mixer!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to play with some of the fun Mixer shapes! Have a great day!
