Mixed Media Tag Set with Brandy

Hi all! Brandy here today to show you some tags I made. Pretty easy and so full of color. Tags are a great way to try out new colors and techniques. 🙂                                                                        If you have a heat tool to dry in between color changes they can be super fast to make, too! 

I used the fussy cut butterflies for inspiration.

A little rustic, a lot of pretty! I love how they turned out!

I created a Snapguide tutorial if you’d like to give these a try!

Let’s Get Artsy With “Confidence”

Happy 2017 everyone, well I’ve never been one for New Years Resolutions because I usually can’t keep them…lol so I have always tried to pick a word to motivate me as a better person. This year my word is “Confidence”.  I hadn’t worked in my art journal book for a while so I new this would be my foundation for my piece.

AA’s Mud Texture Paste is probably one item in my stash I can not be without. I adore texture and I have added inks, seed beads, sand, paint, well you name it I’ve probably added it to this wonderful medium to create with and it never fails me. I used it on this piece to run through a script stencil.

Another one of my favorite art items is my Coloration Sprays, whether I’m spraying, dripping, puddling, splattering, or using them as a watercolor, they are vibrant and have gorgeous highlights. 

Ok and what about the paints, probably my favs are the Metal Effects and Gemstones because of their metallic  properties. All in all Art Anthology’s product definitely allow you to create with confidence. Wishing you a wonderfully creative year, enjoy the journey and process, and embrace your imperfections.

Here is a Snapguide tutorial for your pleasure

Steampunk heart canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with a new mixed media project using AA paints, inks and stencil ! I called it “La fabrique a bonheur” (hapiness manufacture).

 

Layering the different mediums was the key to obtain this rusty look. I used two Velvet in Tango and Portobello, and three Colorations sprays, in Juicy, French Toast and Siesta Key.

Texture is created with special powder and heat, dimension by layering cardboard gears and grunge board strips.

You can watch the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, as well as other tutorials…

Thank you for reading this post today. See you next month for another tutorial…

Here is the list of AA products to create this canvas :

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 2 !

Good day to you, Ellie Knol here!

Today I am featuring the Minx shimmering inks again, as promised in the post Playing with Minx shimmering inks on the 26th of November 2016.
After today I hope to do even some more in near future! I have a few more up my sleeve right now.

I’ve used the same colors for all the techniques on 3 projects.

For step-by-steps of all 6 techniques,
please see the Snapguide at the end of this post!

****

These inks are so versatile, for making backgrounds,
but also for using with bleach,

use with heat embossing as a resist,

coloring images,
watercoloring,
to stamp with,
and splattering.

in short, just PLAY with them!

Find your Star Clear acrylic deco

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second January tutorial made for Art Anthology.

Irit is here with my new artistic inspiration made  for you.

irit_sig

This time I made a clear acrylic wall deco project using the old and forgotten acrylic page from the 7 years non used album.

I call it a kind of recycling as I never made the clear album, but I use those pages for other altered projects and I really like the use of my old stash.

And just to add to this ” use your stash” thing I used the very old decoupage paper on the back of this project, the very old chipboard star and even older metal letters.

This is a kind of a low cost project and it’s like ” make the background, add some themed pieces and make the statement” project.

I really hope that you got some inspiration from this project and you now understand that making art doesn’t mean that you need the buy the latest and greatest products.

All you need are great Art Anthology products and a lot of your imagination.

Here are some close- ups to this finished project:

And as always there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial I made for you HERE:

See you again next month and enjoy your crafting during those cold Winter days!
