Tainted Love by Toni

Well sweetheart month is almost over but it’s not too late for some love filled creativity, mine is just a bit tainted. (lol) We’re going to create something off the wall…….. for your wall. 

I puchased this paper mache heart quite awhile back and I got these awesome black feathered wings on sale after Halloween and new I was going to merge the two together somehow and this is what I came up with. 

I love pairing up odd items and try to come up with something new and this project was a lot of fun. With the help of Art Anthology’s stencils, Mud Paste, sprays and paints and a pile of flowers and metal pieces I think it came together pretty well. 

Applying the Mud paste through the stencil for some great texture and then adding the paints to the embellishments and the sprays for the highlights was really easy. 

The ruffles on the right side of the heart are made with paper spritzed with water to break down the fibers and make the paper pliable. The rivets are made from hot glue . Hope you enjoyed and take a few moments if you will and check out my Snapguide tutorial below.

Sending XOXOXOXOX’s Toni

Black and bright ATCs

Hello !

Valerie again with a new project for you : ATCs ! ATCs are Artist Trading Cards, same format than games cards, 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. You can give or exchange them, like little pieces of art.

How did I create those ? White cardstock and Art Anthology products of course ! OK, I also use stamp and die…

I used Colorations sprays in Glorious, Timeless and Juicy for the background. Then I applied Coral Sorbet with the Lotus stencil

After making another layer with pink ink and the Fragments stencil, the birds were drawn using the Take flight stencil and a black pen. Then I was done with the background…

Next, I cut the globe in white cardstock with a die, and applied Raider Colorations spray over it. I painted white cardstock with Sunshine Sorbet and Glorious Colorations spray before stamped it with sentiment. Once cut, I just glued the sentiment on my ATC, and I was done !

I made a quick video tutorial for you that you can watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope to see you very soon for another project !

I love taking old, plain items and making them useful and pretty!

For this project, I started out with this plain little wooden box I purchased at a thrift store.

Using both the Rust and Patina Texture sets combined with Colorations Sprays and Cotton Velvet Medium from Art Anthology I recreated its boring exterior! Below I have provided an easy to follow Snapguide tutorial on how it was done.

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I made some artist trading cards  in pinks and purples in honor of Valentines Day

The paints blended nicely in this project which gave it the depth and transition of color that I wanted for the background.

Rusty leaves layout by Valerie

Hello there !

I have a Fall layout to show you today. I know, we are in February, but between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and soon to be Valentine’s day, I didn’t have the chance to scrap this Fall picture I like. So here it is, and thanks to that, I did use my rust texture set !

Beside the rust set, I also use the Diamond Grunge stencil with Leaf Sorbet on both sides of the paper. Bonus : the pattern matches the leaves !

To create this rusty effect, you will apply first the rust truffle, then touches of Terracotta, and a hint of Rust Amber for the finish.

On these two pictures, one leaf is painted, the other is a altered metal leaf…

Look how the Leaf Sorbet really pop and shine on this layout !

If you want to see how I make the leaves, you can watch the complete tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today !

Stay tune for more projects from the DT, and see you soon…
