I have been playing with Mineral Paper lately and I have to say I might be a *little* obsessed. The paper itself is made from rocks... and it's SO smooth.
I like to start with watercolors with this paper. I used a few different shades of greens and blues from Peerless Watercolor. After I had a pretty thick layer of watercolor, I used a hair dryer to dry it a little faster. The paint already dries pretty quick on the mineral paper, too. (Hint: Use a hair dryer, NOT a heat gun.)
This is where the magic happened, you guys. The colors mixed and mingled in such a beautiful way on the page.... and, the paper didn't even crinkle.
Next, a few spritz's of Lindy's Stamp Gang "Ponderosa Pines Olive" spray and took the hair dryer to it, too. More magic!
Then, I used a calligraphy pen to outline some of the Sacred Geometry stencils, randomly around the page. I thought it made it pretty interesting to only uses pieces of the stencil. I then went in with some gold and blue/green acrylic paint to outline and stamped a quote, "I do not have time for things with no soul."
I finished up with some outlines and doodles with a Uniball Signo white pen and that's it!
The beauty of Mineral Paper and watercolors/sprays is that the paper doesn't buckle or tear, it can really hold everything that you throw at it... and everything reacts together in such a magical way.
