Welcome back to another Minc it Monday! Today I want to share a layout I have created with the Brand New MINC pens that are apart of the stunning Hawthorne collection. The pens come in a wide or fine tip which allow you to draw, write, doodle or color onto any project and add any color of foil you want! It really is taking the DIY MINC to the next level! I have a quick tutorial at the bottom of my post so be sure to read right to the bottom!
I began my layout with the base woodgrain paper called Ethereal. I then trimmed down the stunning floral pattern paper “Flourish” and laid it on top.
I used the wide glue pen to draw my large heart and words using one of Heidi’s Valentine word files.
Once I had foiled the heart in gold foil I went ahead and embellished my layout. I used that cute floral sticker with antlers and added one of the heart ephemera pieces with pop dots for dimension. I added some Gold foil to the Heart Eyes foam word by pressing it on with my finger.
Next I added my photos , my top photo I adhered with the Pink polka dot washi from the Washi Tape pack so it can flip up to reveal another photo underneath.
I added more of the word Jumble stickers below the photo. You will notice I sanded the edges of my stickers and ephemera to add a masculine touch to my layout.
Finally I added my journaling with my We R Memory Keepers Typecast typewriter to another of the Hawthorne Ephemera pieces. It tucks in behind my photos for some hidden journaling.
Let me share how easy it was to create the gorgeous Minc element to my page.
- I enlarged in powerpoint then printed out the Love word file onto scrap paper.
2. I used a lead pencil to trace over the outline, I had to press fairly hard to create an indentation onto my pattern paper.
3. Using the Wide glue pen I then traced over the outline and allowed it to dry.
4. Finally I ran it through my Minc machine with some Gold foil.

Isn’t the result simply stunning! I cant wait to try this technique again, the possibilities are going to be endless!
