Distress Ink Mixed Media Project
My friends recently bought their first house and I wanted to create a house warming gift for them. The wife enjoys bold color choices so I took the opportunity to try out some different styles than I wouldn’t normally go for and hope they enjoy how it turned out.
I used several colors of Distress Ink along with some Distress Paint and Distress Stain. Also, some other Tim Holtz products were used but before I give it all away, I’ll leave you with the video! I hope you enjoy it and will take the time to comment below and give my video a thumbs up on YouTube if you enjoy it.
Today I’m going to keep this short and let the video speak for itself. I hope you’ve enjoyed how I featured Distress Ink in this project and will find the supplies linked below, to be useful. I’d love to hear how you’ve used any of them to create your own projects!

I was wondering if you ever use photographs in your mixed media art? I would love to incorporate use my photography in some sort of mixed media, but I am at a loss as to how.

Hey Joy! I’m sorry to have missed your comment before now. If you’re still wondering… I’d recommend you look through some of these tutorials on YouTube about doing a photo transfer. The search for the idea using your particular type of ink. So, if you printed on your inkjet printer, search YouTube for, “inkjet photo transfer”. You get the idea. The concept is to use a medium (like gel medium or mod podge, etc), to grab the image ink and save it to the surface you’re working with. By searching YouTube for your particular version of project, you’ll get results for how others are successfully transferring those photos to particular surfaces. Lots of options and super interesting. I’d recommend trying it to get the knack down for it, before doing your main project. Enjoy if you try it! 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=photo+transfer
