Create Clay Embellishments With Art Anthology

Kathy here today to share how I created these fun clay embellishments.  I’ve been wanting to play with clay for a while so I bought some cheap terra cotta air dry clay at Michaels.  I’m sure I didn’t spend more than $10 for a 5lb box.  I made lots of small embellishments and two larger pieces that I broke into smaller pieces for a broken china look.  Art Anthology mediums made these little artsy clay embellishments bright and shimmery!

I ended up making three canvases and had lots of clay pieces left over to add a touch of handmade art to future projects.

Embrace Time by Toni

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a layout featuring a photo I took at the beach as a “goodbye for now” to summer, as it is now fall. Time surely does fly and that’s why the title on my layout is perfect…. Embrace Time.

Using Art Anthology stencil along with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder gives some pretty bubbles to my backdrop for my photos. Along with Minx Shimmering Inks & Coloration Sprays to enhance the muted gray cardstock, these enhance the layout perfectly.

Stone Effects adds such pretty gritty texture to your pieces, and this was added to sections of my chipboard fishnet as well as my surfboards. And then to finish off the layout I added seed beads, seashells, rocks & assorted florals.  Hope you had a spectacular summer, as for me I am so over the heat spell we have been having and sooooo ready for fall… xoxo Toni

Paint Stenciled Patterns

Hi Art Anthology Friends! Debbie with you today sharing a layout I created with Sorbets and Colorations.  The colors I chose for this layout are some of my favorite color combinations. I started off this layout by spraying the background with Timeless Colorations and then adding modeling paste stenciling over the top.  At the bottom of this post is a Snapguide Tutorial and product list sharing the process to create this layout.

Texture and Shine Canvas6

Abstract Canvas With Dimension, Texture and Shimmer

Kathy here today to share a three canvas set that is inspired by similar ones I have seen on Pinterest lately with lots of layers of shimmer and texture in linear patterns. Each canvas is 4″ x 12″ canvases.

Texture and Shine Canvas9

Art Anthology paints are very dimensional and work really well for creating layers of texture without adding additional mediums.  Let me show you how I created my project.

Check out How to Create a Canvas With Dimension and Texture by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Texture and Shine Canvas1

Art Anthology Stucco is a product that acts much light joint compound.  It doesn’t have a creamy consistency like Art Anthology Mud.  It creates a more course texture and adds lots of stiff peaks that are emphasized by the black glaze in this project.

Texture and Shine Canvas7

To make the pieces more cohesive together, I continued the texture and pattern on the edges.  I  wanted to achieved the feeling that the color is spilling off the canvas. What do you think?

Look at the crackle created using the Kroma crackle medium.  It is subtle but adds so much depth.Texture and Shine Canvas3

Now it’s time for you to go create some texture and shine! Happy creating!

Hi friends!  Debbie with you today sharing a project that I tend to do over and over!  I really love the look of beautiful antique looking metal and I figured out a way to make them without breaking the bank.

I’m going to share a simple project and hope you will give it a try.  This technique can be done on several surfaces, my favorite is metals and paper mache.
