Scrapbooking layout built with inks

Hello !

Valerie here to show you how to build a stunning background only with inks and papers !

Few stripes of paper and two inks are enough to create dimensions on the background. I used the Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Warm with a paint brush and water (see the link to products at the end of this post).

I layered pieces of papers from the same stack and added three die cut sprayed with Waimea Bay to drawn the eye to the picture. Drops of gesso are the final touches to this layout.

You will find the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by the blog today and for reading this post. See you in two weeks for another project !

Altered Reverse Canvas with Brandy

Hello again!! Brandy here today with a new project. This was so fun! It took me a while to figure just how I would do it, but I wanted it to be just right. I’ve been wanting to try decorating on the reverse side of a canvas for some time. It can be kind of like a shadow box, but the wood frame gives you a bigger area to create on that faces forward.

As usual, I’ve created a tutorial over at Snapguide, so you can give this project a try yourself!!

Paint on clay Winter banner

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today and I am going to share my new Art Anthology experiment- using Art Anthology products over the dry polymer clay surfaces.

During my time on this team I try to use Art Anthology paints over different surfaces and to see the results. So far I used wood , canvas, cardstock and clear acrylic board. Today I used polymer clay pieces and I need to say that Art Anthology products work perfectly over this surfaces too.

So here is a Winter banner I made with Makin’s Clay non baked polymer clay (you just need to wait like 12 hours before it’s totally dry to apply the paints over the surface).


And now for some close ups to all three banner pieces:





As you can sew from those close- ups I used Art Anthology stencil and dimentional paint over the clay surface and it’s works perfectly!

So here is a full step by step tutorial for you:

And as always- full Art Anthology product list is HERE:

I hope that I inspired you to try totally different surfaces with our fantastic products!

See you soon again!

XO XO by Toni

Hi everyone, Happy February, it’s the month of love… and well if you know me you know how much I love steampunk. I love everything about it, the fantasy, the grunge, the unusual, the colors, the Victorian feel to it. It does not limit my imagination, I can go wild with transforming an ordinary object into something crazy and unexpected.

I purchased these two letters quite some time ago at my local craft store on clearance. Originally they were $14.99 a piece…. what !!!! But I got them for $2.00 each, what a steal.

Loaded with lots of yummy textures enhanced with Art Anthology’s paints, sprays and pastes helped achieve the aged look. 

With the use of Art Anthology’s stencil,  drippings from my glue gun and lots of different sized seed beads, my new wall art work started to come alive. 

I just love using unexpected items in my art work and my letter here is filled with floral rocks that were beautifully transformed with Art Anthology’s paints.

Many of my items on this piece were made from paperclay, grunge board or plastic, but the patina’d look that AA’s paste and paints provides transforms them into metal-like piece.

I hope this has inspired you to enter the world of steampunk, don’t be afraid, let your imagination run free and just have fun with it. For your pleasure I have included a Snapguide tutorial for your viewing and also below are a list of products from AA that helped me achieve the look I was going for. xoxo Toni

Beach Color Inspired Layout

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am sharing a layout with some of my favorite colors to create with.  These colors can be used in so many different ways.  These colors remind me of being at the beach!  Although I didn’t create a layout with a beach theme I was inspired by beach colors.

I really love Art Anthology’s Minx,  you can use them as background colors,  flick them,  dye your lace trim with them or you can also dab them thru your stencils and create a background.

Art Anthology’s Sorbets are so much fun to create with!  I’ve used them for my background on my layouts.    They are so thick and yummy!  I also love to use my heat tool to dry them and if you hold your heating tool long enough above the paint it will create bubbles for more texture!  I am a huge fan of lots of texture!

Instead of using texture paste with the stencils I love to use Art Anthology’s Sorbets, Velvets and Clear Coats like a texture paste.

For my background I used Art Anthology’s Dot Matrix and Blossom stencils,  they’re so versatile and fun to create with!

I will be hosting a Ustream Live Class for Art Anthology recreating this layout!

I hope to see you there!

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope I’ve inspired you to try Art Anthology’s products,  they are amazing to create with!

Altered chipboard heart

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Valentine February Art Anthology post.

This is Irit here from Irit Shalom’s Designs blog  and I just want to say ” Happy Valentine Day” to you all!



This time I made an altered chipboard heart project and this is a kind of ” use whatever you have” one.

Most of us (be honest, you too) have this junk box with all possible left over embellishments that are not a part of a set or collection.
They are all in all possible colors and textures and shapes and we never actually use them.
So this project is the one that makes you to open this junk box and to grab all things you would never use the other way and to make one single altered project that looks fabulous and costs nothing (yes, the gorgeous Art Anthology paints and mists have a cost, but it’s not like you use the whole bottle for this project? ).
So as you can see other than Art Anthology products I added here buttons, pieces of chipboards, metal trinkets, lace, die cuts and … You name it- it’s here.

So here are a few close ups to this  shiny red heart :

And as always here is the Snapguide tutorial:
