Layout “Sky is the limit” by Anna Komenda

Hello AA fans. It’s Anna here with some summer inspiration. I played with Colorations Sprays and I created a layout. I was inspired by picture I took during our visit at my parent’s house. They live in the countryside and the sky often looks fabulous there. So crisp and blue till the green horizon.

As I mentioned, I played with Colorations Sprays. I sprayed the background with three shades of blue using circle as a stencil.


I left the white circle in the middle of the blue circles but I also wanted to add white clouds. I didn/t have a proper stencil so I created one by myself. I used texture paste to create the clouds.


I added a pinch of yellow and I created three colors palette: white, blue and yellow as a sun.


The title just jumped into my head. I feel free and wild when I look at the sky and distant horizon. It gives my such a great power to deal with the daily routine.


I also created a process video for You.

Thank You for stopping by and see You in two weeks 🙂

Minx and Masks: Creating Backgrounds

Hi creative peeps! Kathy here today to show you a technique that I learned from an online class, Inspiration Wednesday, with Donna Downey.  In the class, she used watercolors with masks. I thought the technique would be perfect for using Minx Shimmering Inks and some of the cool masks available from Art Anthology.

Mixed Media Cards2

I used 11″ x 14″ sturdy mixed media paper to create a background, then cut it into cards and used Melissa Frances wood veneer and resin embellishments to finish them off.  Many of us don’t send cards through the mail anymore, but I’ve found that people still really love and appreciate receiving them. And it is a great way to share your art with loved ones and friends.

Boho Beauty

Hi all you crafty peeps… Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend ! My project today is a 12 x 12 layout of my daughter I recently took. Her outfit inspired me to give this layout a bohemian look. DSC08088

I used the Art Anthology paints to stamp my paisley prints for the backdrop, and Colorations & Fairy Dust Sprays to enhance the flowers as well as the background.


Means this was a boho style layout I had to do a little macrame weaving on this page. I have a full Snapguide tutorial below to show you how I created this weave effect on my page as well as how I customized my background paper with splashes of beautiful colors and shine.


The Metal Effects paints really provides that pretty metallic shine needed to enhance these flowers and frames. Once again, Art Anthology products always deliver the results needed to add that pazazz to your projects. I hope you were inspired to get our your jars and add some color to your projects. Creatively yours, TonitoniSIG

Let’s Alter Something by Toni

Hi everyone… hope your having a spectacular day and let’s get started on altering something. I recently purchased this inexpensive paper mache kleenex box and wanted to alter it to match my bathroom and it’s so easy to get a fabulous look with your Art Anthology paints and texture paste. DSC08014

And here is out it turned out…. Using AA’s Mud Paste with AA’s beautiful Kaleidoscope stencil for the foundation of the base and then loaded with AA’s Coloration Sprays, Sorbets, Velvets & Metal Effects paints to highlight all your different textures.


The beautiful sparkle really enhanced so many of the flowers and leaves. The granite in my bathroom is a combination of blacks & grays with highlights of coppers and golds so I went with these colors to alter my piece.

The Mud Paste with the stencil provide a beautiful textured base for my box.


Now to add layers of flowers, leaves, metal & wood embellishments and cover with gesso.


After your gesso is dry it’s time to add all of your sprays and paints to customize your piece.


For added interest I also topped the petals and leaves with Ultra Thick Embossing in Rust and Gold.

For your viewing I have included a Snapguide tutorial with lots more photos and step x step procedure below.

Hope this has inspired you to create a one of a kind piece for your home using your Art Anthology products !  Creatively yours,  TonitoniSIG


Canvas “You and me” by Anna Komenda

Hello Art Anthology fans. It’s Anna here with my newest project created with AA goodies.

I like creating canvas. They can be easily displayed around the house. You can also add more dimensional embellishments as You don’t have to worry if it will all fit into the pocket of the album. And it’s really easy to work on the surface that is already covered with the protective base like gesso.

I usually make colorful projects but I had this picture of me and my husband on our wedding day and I wanted to create something more romantic.

DSC_8841 DSC_8848

I wanted to play with shades of mint, pink and gold with a light vintage touch.


I used beautiful wood veneers from Melissa Frances to create a background. Clock faces vere just perfect to highlight the age of the photo. It was taken more than nine years ago but I feel like it was a blink of an eye from present day.

DSC_8826 DSC_8830

My composition is quite simple. I also didn’t want to cover everything with a thick amount of medias. I just wanted to achieve this airy, light look with a shimmer of colors.


You can watch whole process on the video below.

I hope You will enjoy watching it. Thank You for stopping by and don’t forget to share Your projects with Art Anthology mediums on our FB Group Art Anthology Adventures in art.
