Treasure Memories

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Jenn here today sharing my aged, altered frame.


I have had this photo of my beloved late grandmother just waiting to create a display piece. When I found this frame I knew instantly what I wanted to create! I will display this in my home proudly in her memory.

Supplies:
Art Anthology Colorations Sprays Sky, Sedona, Timeless
Art Anthology Minx Ink Panache
White Gesso
Frame
Glue
Crackle Texture paste
Heat Tool
Florals and other embellishments

I started by applying a very thick layer of gesso all over the frame. Next, I added some crackle effect paste here and there with a palette knife. After the crackle was dry I sprayed the frame with AA Colorations in Sky, dried and followed with AA Colorations Sedona. I added AA Minx in Panache and dried. Several layers of sprays, alternating between the colors and drying created the aged appearance I wanted. In between colors I also drybrushed a bit of white. I splattered white in the end as well.

I then added some chipboard leaves(dyed), die cut leaves,  and florals from Reneabouquets for a feminine look. Some mini art stones were added for texture and a few pearl beads. The sentiment stickers were my final touch!

Dream Little One..A Layout by Jenn

Hello everyone!! Jenn here sharing this beautiful layout I created featuring my gorgeous granddaughter Serah!
For my layout background I used a sheet of designer paper matted with a heavier black cardstock underneath it.
I applied a layer of clear gesso to the paper to prepare the surface for wet media. Once that was dry I stenciled a random pattern using a crackle texture paste. I left this to dry several hours.

I then sprayed AA Colorations in Sky and dried with a heat tool. I then added water to some AA Minx in Stargazer and pooled it lightly in some areas to achieve the shade of blue.I finished it by adding some more splatters of AA Colorations and some white acrylic paint mixed with a bit of water to thin it. Once I was happy with the color and it was dry I chose my flowers and other embellishments to compliment the sweet photo.

For these colors and many more amazing products check out the online store!

After changing my composition around several times I decided on this and adhered all of the element with glue. I brushed over some areas with mat gel and white gesso and then sprinkled them with glitter and art stones for a finishing touch!
