Hi everyone…. Toni here with a fun and easy way to spruce up your art journal cover using Art Anthology products. First prepping the surface with gesso then I adhered different elements to the cover, such as grungeboard letters and latex lace. I decided to use “Anthology” as my title which I feel is perfect Merriam Webster says: anthology nounan·thol·o·gyDefinition of anthology 1: a collection of selected literary pieces or passages or works of art or music.
I used two different stencils (listed below) and Mud Texture Paste to give more yummy texture. Finished off with some Vintage Gold wax for highlights. Hope you enjoyed and take one of your journals or album covers and give it a face lift. For your pleasure I have included a process video below. Happy creating ! xoxo Toni
Valerie here with something different from what I’m usually creating… it’s a canvas, to show you that you can paint with gel mediums as well as if it’s was acrylic, even if like me you’re not a painter !
After covering my canvas with white gesso, I started by applying grey (I used 50 shades but you can use Pewter) and Silver Metal Effect all over the canvas, then adding touches of red Desire Velvet with a small brush, using something water to dilute the color.
You should give it a try, it’s fun to create a canvas without pressure (we are not looking to create a masterpiece after all), and I have a little video tutorial to help you start with blank canvas by showing you how I did this one :
Thank you for your time, I hope this post will give give you some inspiration to create a canvas of your own.
Hello and Happy Holidays!! Jenn here sharing this fun reverse canvas I created using Art Anthology along with some other amazing products! Below I have included a Snapguide Tutorial to show you step by step how I created it.
Merry Christmas everyone, today I have a fun festive layout with a photo I took of my daughter last Christmas. This is a very easy layout but the use of AA’s stencils and Mud Texture Paste just sends it over the top special… I think. This month we are encouraging our followers to try out your stencils.
I used the Twilight Stencil and Mud Texture Paste, then I also ran through the same stencil with Metal Effects Gold. While the Mud was still wet I sprinkled dark red microbeads on. Some of the chipboard pieces were highlighted with the Metal Effects Gold as well. I added DIY snow to alot of the project with Diamond Dust sprinkled over the top of layout as well as poinsettias. This layout only took me a couple hours…. which is very fast for me. Give our stencils a try, they will not disappoint.
