Today is full of possibilities by Lisa

Hi friends! Lisa here today to show you my last art journal pages, made with beautiful Velvet paints & Colorations sprays by Art Anthology! This is my last post with AA design team, I felt very honored to be part of it in these six months and I thank those who believed in me and gave me this fabulous opportunity! I hope to have inspired you with my projects in these months, and this is another one just for you!

To start I brushed white gesso, then modelling paste through AA stencil and I let it dry.

After that I used Colorations sprays (Siesta Key, Plush and Glorious) on my background, with a brush and a little bit of water to blend the colors.

Then I used some stamps with archival inks.

So I glued some paper embellishments and I made splatters with Velvet Paint (DayGlow, Tuxedo and Cotton)

Here some close ups photos:

BE HAPPY TOGETHER

Good morning everyone. I am back with a colorful Travel Notebook Layout I created using a stencil and Coloration Spray (Salmon) from Art Anthology. I’ve been itching to buy new papers and stickers, but before I do… I am determined to use up my stash! So far, it’s working and it feels great to save a few dollars…and use up the products I have on my shelf.

 

I mixed the Salmon Coloration Spray with Molding paste to create a pink shade. Then I covered the stencil using the medium. It steeped under the stencil a bit because it wasn’t think enough…but that’s OK. I just wanted to add some texture to the layout so it was fine.

I added lots of embellishments at the bottom to complete the layout. Since the photo was my main focus, I kept the design pretty simple.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Here’s a process video!

Live Your Dream With Passion by Lisa

Hi AA friends!

Lisa today to share with you my last mixed media card, playing with AA Stencil, Colorations sprays and Velvet paints!

To start I cutted a piece of watercolor paper, I chose AA Stencil Lotus and I used it with a heavy gel for a thick texture.
After I used some text stamps with archival black ink.


With a brush and a little bit of water I used some Colorations sprays across my card until I was happy with the blend of colours.


After that I used Tuxedo Velvet Paint to made some ink splatters and I built my focal point with some butterflies cutted from scrapboook papers and others that I stamped on watercolor paper.

Here some close ups photos:

Dreamer of Dreams by Farrel Tailor

Happy New Year Everyone!!!! Farrel here to share with you all an altered frame I created using lots of Art Anthology mixed media goodies!!!

Dreamer of Dreams Frame by Farrel Tailor

I stared by painting my Dusty Attic chipboard frame with white gesso, then used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panche on the base and Sorbet Dimensional Paint – Vegas Gold on the top layer.

Next I tore a piece of paper from an old book and sprayed it with Colorations Sprays – Warm and Sandcastle. I then adhered this piece to the back of the chipboard frame.

WINTER TIME

Happy New Year!! It’s hard to believe another year has passed. People have told me over the years… time flies, the older you get. They are so right! It’s scary how fast time flies. I’m going to have a 10 year old (double digits) next month. THAT’S SCARY!

My little man loves the snow. Last year we only got a few inches. Hopefully, this year we will get a little more so he can really enjoy it. Today, I’m sharing a layout I created using Coloration Sprays (Sky, Granny Smith, and Salmon) and the Meridian Stencil. I love these colors together.

To begin, I prepped the page with Clear Gesso. Once the gesso was completely dry, I placed the Meridian Stencil onto the cardstock and then sprayed about 12 inches above the stencil using the Granny Smith. When spraying multiple colors, I start with the lightest colors first and work my way up to the darker colors.

After spraying the Granny Smith, I carefully lifted the stencil and moved it to a different area on the cardstock and sprayed over the stencil using the Salmon Coloration Spray. I repeated the same process with the Sky Coloration Spray.

I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time. Once the ink was completely dry, I added my embellishments!

I used papers and embellishments from Studio Forty to design this layout. Love these chipboard pieces and the wooden enamel buttons.

I used an acrylic stamp to stamp the “Winter Time” title at the top of the layout and then I stamped “Joy” on one of the squares.

“Winter Joy” Mixed-Media Layout

Hey everyone! Can you believe that it’s the end of the year already!? Suzanne here today to share with you a very easy and simple mixed media layout that I’ve created using Minx Shimmering Ink and Shine paint!

I begin my layout by adding a diluted mixture of Minx Ink in “Indulgence” and water (to lighten the color) using the “smoosh” technique; it really is the easiest way to jump start any layout with color!

While the ink was still wet, I added Minx Shimmering Ink in “Gold Dust.” This adds an awesome gold shimmer to the background-I actually want to put it on everything!

Check out that bling!

While the background is drying, I added color to paper die-cuts using Shine paint in “Kelly Green.” Because I didn’t necessarily want the full opacity of the paint, on a non-stick surface, I diluted the paint with water and mixed it well. I very loosely painted and dipped the pine bough die-cuts into the mixture until I was satisfied with coverage; I dried the die-cuts with a heating tool and added Minx Ink in Gold Dust on top to add even more shimmer!

Now that everything is completely dry, all that’s left to do is to assemble the layout. Here are some close-ups.

Art Anthology Supplies:
Shine “Kelly Green”
Minx Shimmering Inks “Gold Dust”


Other Supplies:
Cardstock die-cuts
sticker embellishments and letters
patterned paper

A Floral Jar

Hello, welcome to another tutorial. As some of you already know, I love repurposing common household objects and turning into works of art. I recently made this beautiful floral jar with tissue, clay flowers and Art Anthology Products and I loved it so much that I decided to do a video tutorial.

Floral Jar

I make my own clay flowers with Delight Clay™ and silicone molds, the kind you use for gum paste and fondant. I find this much cheaper as molds can be used over and over again. Also, the detail you get using the Delight Clay™ is amazing!

Below is a supply list and a video tutorial showing you how to make this jar. It actually would be a great gift for someone special.

Art Anthology Products used:

Salmon Colorations Spray
Sandcastle Colorations Spray
Flamingo Sorbet Dimensional Paint

Other products used are:
glass jar
gesso
tissue
clay flowers
collage paper
soft gel medium
white acrylic paint

Christmas Card inspiration with Daniëlle

Hi guys!

How are you doing? I have a quick inspirational post for you today. Every year I create some Christmas cards and this year I used an Art Anthology background for them.

I created the background using three colorations sprays colors, Minx inks and Fairy Dust with a stencil. As you can see I also added some background stamping, a different text for each card. I also added a layer of clear coat sterling through a stencil. Add a cute image and text and your cards are ready! I like my Christmas cards all shiny and sparkly so I use lots of Minx, Fairy Dust and clear coat. I also use pearlescent cardstock but that’s quite hard to photograph.

I hope to inspire you to create a quick little Christmas card yourself!

See you again soon!
