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!!

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:

I used many different techniques on this little canvas to achieve all of the depth and texture that you can see in the close ups. One of the things I have found that I really love about Minx is how versatile it is. It has a very rich color that can be changed with the addition of water, other sprays, glues, and any medium really. For mine I used a mix of many AA sprays combined with water spritzes, distress crackle paste and mini art stones. Please refer to the snapguide tutorial below for more info!!
