Altered Journal by Anna Colby

For my first video of 2018 I wanted to alter a journal I’ve had. I liked the color of the Wild Orchid spray and I wanted to play around with it.

I think the keyhole stencil and the combination of Wild Orchid and Sedona gave my project a very elegant vintage feel. It was fun to create this journal.

For inspiration on how to make your own altered journal check out my video below! Thanks everyone and Happy 2018.

Mixed media canvas about Maths…

Happy New Year from Valerie !

There is no reason to create less than in 2017, right ? I hope you start this new year with alot of projects in mind, and I hope I will help you in your creativity with my new project inspired by the January moodboard…

That was a lot of work but I am so pleased with the result ! I wanted to create a canvas to celebrate Maths and found a quote from Albert Einstein : “Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” I had my title !

I used three different stencils, two from the Off the Grid stack, and the Blocked stencil. You will also find some Mud texture paste and Plush Colorations spray.

And I did play with Velvet and Sorbet mediums : Orchid, Mayan gold, Purple Rain, Mardi Gras and Dragon Fruit.

Maths are so important in the progress of the human kind… In fact, they are present everywhere, especially in art ! I think this piece could be a perfect gift for a Maths teatcher… Never too early to think about end-of-the-school-year gift or even a dad’s day gift ?

You can watch my video tutorial to see my creative process right here :

And if you need another push to creativity, here is the moodboard to help you start with colors…

Once again happy new year, and see you soon for another mixed media project…

Panoramic painting by Marleen.

Hello, Marleen here with my first post in 2018!

Wish you all the best for 2018!!

I was totally inspired by the  color moodboard for this month, what a beautiful colors!

These reminded me of the amazing sunset I had in California, Santa Barbara.

It was also in January in 2015. I went to the CHA and did some demos for Art Anthology. In Holland it was freezing and in Cali it was sunny nice and warm!

All good memories!

So I took one of these gorgeous photos and experienced these magic colors again!
