Steampunk Hat Gift Box by Toni

Hi everyone, did you get inspired by our moodboard this month…. so so pretty !

My next project was totally inspired by this moodboard, the lovely vintage colors and flowers as well as that amazing Steampunk vibe. A friend of mine’s birthday is coming up and I decided to make her a gift box in the shape of a Steampunk Hat means she adores Steampunk like I do.  I started off with an inexpensive paper mache box from Hobby Lobby and primed it with black gesso. Then I coated my 3D Texture Fade in Mechanicals with our beautiful Sorbets in Patience, Amber, and Purple Rain. A bit messy I will admit but I love the effect you get when you emboss the paints right into the fibers of the papers. Coloration sprayed my flowers and added some metal embellishments and feathers and there you go.  For your pleasure I have included a video below. Hope you take time to view and are inspired. xoxo Toni

Supplies used :

Colorations-

Timeless, Plush, Patience, Raider

Sorbet-Purple Rain, Red Velvet 

Rust Texture Set – Amber

Chipboard frame with the September moodboard

Hi everyone !

The beautiful moodboard inspire me this month to decorate a chipboard frame with the deep and luxurious colors of this board :

I kept the petunias in mind to create my flowers and the amber look of the leather jacket. Here is the result :

The base is a blank chipboard frame that I decorated with AA mediums, Colorations spray and stencil… I created the flowers with 7 big flower punches and the Azalea Shine, Grape Shine and DragonFruit Velvet.

I applied Bone Stone Effect medium on the centerpiece, then gel medium over Gothic stencil, and Patience Colorations spray.

The stems were created with air dry clay, and brushed with some Amber Gemstones medium (you can find it in the Rust texture set) and Glass Sorbet.

The top frame and the title were painted with Amber (Rust Texture set).

You can learn how to create the flowers and the general process of this project in my new tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel :

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I did inspired you to create more with your AA products !

See you soon…

A Glimpse of Heaven Altered Canvas w/ Brandy

Happy September! Brandy here to share this month first project!
I decided to go with a canvas. I chose a few pretty flowers to inspire myself.

For that warm peachy color, I watered down some of my Rust/Terracotta Velvet and used it to watercolor. I love it!!

Then I alternated spray of my Warm and Timeless Coloration sprays and kind of blended it together.

Lots of art stones, flowers, and a couple coordinating butterflies finished it perfectly!!

Rust/Terracotta Velvet
Timeless Colorations Spray
Warm Colorations Spray

Faux leather book wooden box

Hi there !

We are at the end of August, back-to-school is already behind us, it’s time to dive into books… Wait what ? Yes books… You know I’m talking about mixed media, right ? My project for today is an altered wooden box, in shape of a book ! And what did I do with it ? Make it look like a leather covered book !

The technique I used to create this leather look is imprint a rubber stamp into Mud Texture paste ! You just have to apply a layer of Mud paste, let it dry almost competely and then press the stamp over the paste and remove carefully…

Once dry, you can paint it as you want. Here I used Chocolate Sorbet (you can also use the Kona Velvet) and Cocoa Shine to give this old leather look.

And I used Teal Velvet and Copper Metallic from the Patina Texture set to give an antique look at my metal embellishments.

This imprint technique is a real deal ! It does look like emboss leather !

As always, I made a video tutorial for you to follow this particular technique and enjoy the transformation of a plain wood box into an leather like book…

Thank you for stopping by the blog today ! I hope you liked this new project… See you soon for another one !

Have a great day !
