Shabby Altered Box

Hello crafters !

Valerie here, back with a new mixed media project !

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).

Here another close-up on the clay frame and cameo, painted with the Colorations sprays with a brush…

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

Thank you for stopping by today, and see you in two weeks…

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.

Japanese style bookmarks

Hello crafters !

Valerie again with a project inspired by my recent visit to a bookstore, where I bought two Japanese books. I have a soft spot for the beauty and elegance of Japanese culture, and it inspire me to create these bookmarks :

I choose colors reminding me of the Land of the Rising Sun : Timeless, Juicy and Barbie for the Colorations sprays, and Coral for the Sorbet Dimensional paint.

I choose the Blocked stencil as a reminder of the square design in the stamp, and the Retro one because it looks like colorful sun on the bookmark.

You will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel.

Thank you for reading this post and see you soon for another project !

Hello Art Anthology fans! I’m here to share a very fun project! Yes, it’s a mini album, but it also folds out to be a pretty decoration you can add a few pictures to.

I used a few AA stencils and a couple AA paints to create the one of a kind background for each tag page. A couple of pieces of chipboard and some ribbon later, and you have yourself a pretty little mini album. 🙂

As usual, I’ve made a Snapguide Tutorial for this project! Come give it a try!
