Magical Fairy Altered Canvas w/ Brandy

Have you seen the gorgeous Moodboard Challenge we have going on? I was inspired to make something pretty!

I used my LUNA Stencil for my base texture….it fit with the moon the fairy is sitting on great! Then I tried a new effect by adding more texture with my mud and Twilight Stencil and then putting glitter over the top while it was still wet.

The SKY and Barbie Colorations Sprays fit perfectly with the moodboard colors!

Splatters of watered down COTTON Velvet Paint tied my background together so nicely!!

I love how it turned out!

Here is a process/tutorial video to see just how I created it!

#SummerVibes Inspiration Challenge Canvas with Brandy

Hi there Art fans! Brandy here today to share a canvas I made for our #SummerVibes Challenge on the our Facebook Fan page, Adventures in art!
Don’t forget…All members that post and share their #summervibe project will be put into a drawing for one of Marleen van Meerendonk‘s new stencils!!!
Here is our inspiration for you! Any project any style…just use some Art Anthology product on it!!

I decided to make a canvas for my project.  Of course I let those blue skies and water and all that lavender inspire me!

I have created many very subtle textures in the background of my canvas by using my Hurricane, Bubbles, and Take Flight stencils! It wasn’t easy but I tried really hard to keep my coloring to a minimum…so the color that was there would stand out !

Just three simple products were used… my Sky Colorations Spray, and my Orchid and Reef Velvet paints! I built up my Sky color, by adding a few layers of sprays and and watered down my Velvet’s to use them more as watercolors.

I hunted around on the internet to find a title to work with and found a poem by Roald Dahl….LOL, gives me a #SummerVibe, how about you!!??

Here is a tutorial/process video if you’d like to see how I made it!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I’ve inspired you to create a summer project to come and share with us!!!

Rusty ATC’s w/ Brandy

Hi there Art Anthology Fans!! Boy, this month is flying by, isn’t it??
Though my project today is tiny, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in WOW!

I’m so impressed with these new collections! They are just so easy to use.

 I like to apply a base coat color and put the other two color mediums mostly on the textured areas. Let them dry between coats…but you can use your heat tool for speed. 🙂

Find this Rust Collection Texture Set ans so many more awesome products in the ART Anthology online store!!

Here is a video of my process!

I hope I’ve inspired you to grab yourself some plain and boring and rust it up!!
