Altered Antique Photo Album – Part 1 by Toni

Hi artsy friends, Toni here with a new design team project for Art Anthology. I have some very special photos that I had copied from my mother not too long ago and I hadn’t scrapped them yet, but I knew they deserved a special home just for them. So yesterday I was out and about antiquing (… is that a word ????) and I came across this wonderful vintage photo album, held together by metal brackets. I had to have it. I will admit is was a bit pricey but it screamed “ALTER ME ! “

The picture doesn’t really show it but it was in pretty bad shape, so it needed some fixin up.

Now this is a project in progress so this post will provide you tutorial for the cover process and then the next posts will be my journey on creating the pages within and finishing off with a post on my technique for the back cover.

The foundation texture was created using different laces, then adding on my embellishments of frames, metal pieces, assorted chipboards, buttons and glass pebbles.

Providing some extra texture I made some rusting paste with Art Anthology paints mixed with Texture powder and also included some Art Stones.

Lots of wonderfulness all wrapped up on this cover. Art Anthology provides for a multitude of different techniques. Please check out my Snapguide tutorial below for my  step x step process.

Wishing you a week of unlimited creative possibilities ! xoxo Toni

Love Rocks Journal Page

Hi everyone! Today I would like to share with you how to brighten the pages of your journal with all the beautiful colors available in Art Anthology Colorations!

I “build up” my journal pages as I go rather than doing them all at once. Most backgrounds I achieve come from “clean ups”. This is simply accomplished by laying journal page on craft mat to pick up inks and sprays left and dripped from other projects. I fond this technique to make for some really unique and beautiful backgrounds.

Here are a few more pictures to show some detail!!

 

For this journal page several steps were done over a period of several days.

Art Anthology Products used:

Colorations Sprays:

Peacock

Waimea Bay

Raider

Juicy

Sorbet – Coral

Minx – Immaculate

Minx – Enchanting (diluted with water)

Stencil – Let’s face it

Other products:

White, teal, purple and clear embossing powders

stamps

Black Archival Ink

Waterbrush

Aqua black Stabilo pencil

I hope you have enjoyed this journal page project I created. Happy Creating!!

Soft colors of Spring, butterflies and flowers were my inspiration for today… I’m came up with this shabby altered box :

I use two Colorations sprays on this box, Avocado and Wild Orchid, and in two ways, by spraying (box and embellishments) and by painting (the cameo and the frame).

Found..mixed media canvas board

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing this “found in the ocean” inspired canvas board I created using Art Anthology products.

The ocean is by far one of my favorite places to visit. Combing the beaches for agates and aged trinkets is so much fun. For this little mixed media canvas, I was inspired by what salt water does to metal objects over time. The rust and patina it creates is stunning to me! By taking a metal spoon and a few other metal embellishments and using Art Anthology mediums in combination with some other products I was able to recreate this stunning look! It always amazes me what you can do with inks, paints, and pastes!

I created a lot of layers using various AA sprays in combination with some other mediums. This also added lots of texture and dimension to this piece.

 

This is the products I used from Art Anthology:

Collect Beautiful Moments by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new project. It’s springtime here in the U.S. one of my favorite times of the year, so I decided to create a butterfly canvas.  It was time to bust out the Sculpture Medium. I’ve been wanting to play with this for some time. Once my cheesecloth was completely dry it was stiff as a board and took to Art Anthology’s mediums and spray beautifully.

I think this will be a pretty addition to my altered canvases in my studio. I also utilized my new Paper Clay Moulds and created some of my own embellishments to enhance my canvas. 

Wishing you a beautiful springtime and hoping you “Collect Beautiful Moments” along the way.

For your enjoyment I have including a Snapguide tutorial below for my step x step process.

Time flies when you are clowning around

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here with my first March inspiration.

This time I made a square 6*6” chipboard altered board using lots of Art Anthology stencils, paints  and sprays.

This chipboard was first covered with gesso. Then I added texture paste with our fantastic Art Anthology …… stencil.

Here are some close ups for you to see:

 

 

 

The whole composition was born when I decided to add a stamped clown image over the board and to use the stamped ” Clowning around” sentiment.

This was my first time to mix Sorbet paint with 3d art stones and it worked in the best possible artistic way over the board.

As always I made a full Snapguide tutorial that you can see HERE:

And a full list of supplies  is added here for you:


Hope you liked my art piece. See you again in  two weeks with another Art Anthology inspiration.
