Fun Altered Fall Paintbrush

Hi Art Anthology Fans!! Today I am going to show you what I created using inspiration from our November moodboard! This Fun Altered Fall Paintbrush!

How did I create this? Read on for more……….

In addition to the amazing Art Anthology colors featured on the mood board, Limeaid Velvet, Bronze Metal EffectsDecadent Minx, Gold Dust Minx, and Radiance Minx, I also added some Red Velvet Sorbet and Bankroll Minx. As you can see all of these colors work very well together to create a great Fall palette! By adding the Minx Shimmering Inks in coordinating colors you will achieve a glittery and glossy finish to your project.

 

Here are a few pictures close up to show detail. After these please click on the snapguide for a full tutorial!

Garden Tags by Jenn

Garden Tags JDuBell Art Anthology

Hello! Art Anthology Fans and Friends! I am up on the blog today showing you these beautiful Garden Tags using Art Anthology products! The colors are vibrant and easy for anyone to achieve with these products! The best news is that Art Anthology offers an amazing variety of colors for you to choose from!

What you will need for this project:

Art Anthology Colorations Sprays

Art Anthology Minx shimmering Inks

Art Anthology Stencils

Art Anthology Sorbets

All other supplies are listed in Snapguide tutorial on the bottom of this post.

Start this project with a blank chipboard tag. Mine is 7″X3 1/4″.

Add stenciling using crackle paste in white. Make sure to dry completely between stencils. Crackle paste also cracks more when allowed to dry naturally rather than using a heat tool.

For my tags I used the following Art Anthology Products:

Stencils: MVM Diamond Grunge, Bubbles, MVM Lotus

Colorations Sprays: Ink Spot, Peacock Feathers, Sky, Plush

Shimmering Inks: Enchanting, Stargazer

Sorbet: Linen

Once my background looked the way I wanted it to I coated with a clear glue and seal. This seals the inks and makes them pop!

Once everything is dry I assembled it all using flowers that were dyed in same colors to match, TH paper dolls, chipboards, jute string, cheesecloth, pearls, drywall net tape, and sentiments.

Thanks so much for reading my post! I hope you enjoy this project and are inspired to create some for yourself or to give as gifts! For the full tutorial please look at Snapguide below.

Imagine scrapbook Layout

Today I would love to share a layout I created and titled “Imagine”. I love blues and browns together and I love to mix them with texture and distressing to create a “vintage” look as I did here. Enjoy!

For this layout, I used a lot of techniques to create textures and movement. The background started as a grid lined cardstock. I stamped with watermarking clear stamp and  a fern-like stamp and heat embossed clear. I then used  Distress ink in Vintage Photo with sponge aplicator to bring out the texture. Next, I used Art Anthology’s Blocked stencil and texture paste (mixed with Art Anthology Waimea bay Colorations spray) to add another layer of texture. I used a mix of corrugated and Kaisercraft papers cut into circles, G45 papers cut into strips, and chippies from my stash. I used Art Anthology Blue Topaz Gemstone paint to add more color to plain silver paper straws. Prima flowers and mini art stones were also adhered. For a little more of the dark blue to contrast I stamped the same fern-like stamp with a chalk ink. Splatters of white acrylic, Art Anthology Minx in Stargazer and Art Anthology Colorations Sprays in Waimea Bay ,Warm, Indigo, and Timeless were added all around focal. For some glitz I added some bling stones in greens and blues.
