Altered Pumpkin by Anna Colby

Hi everyone! I decided to make a fall craft for the Thanksgiving Season! I altered this paper mache pumpkin with some awesome embellishments I made myself with resin and molds. I wanted a center piece for my Thanksgiving table and I love the way this turned out, I might pair it with some candles and flowers.

These are the products I used: Minx Shimmering Inks in the color Decadent. Metal Effects in Gold, Stone Effects in Bone and Coloration Spray in  Warm. Velvet Paints in Tango and Shamrock as well as the stencil Diamond Grunge. The picture doesn’t do it justice but I love the subtle shimmer and shine effect from these products

Here is a close up of all the details, the Minx Shimmering Inks really made it pop. For a tutorial on how to make your own, check out my video below.



Trick or Treat Bag by Anna Colby




Happy Halloween Everyone! I decided to decorate a treat bag to try out the Velvet Paints.

This is one of my favorite stencils, I love how the Tuxedo Velvet Paint worked thru the stencil, giving my bag the extra texture I was looking for.


I used Shamrock and Chocolate, I liked how the transparency of these paints added depth.

Happy Halloween, Wishing you all lots of tricks and treats!

I’m super excited to be sharing my first project as a Design Team Member for Art Anthology. I altered a large paintbrush using clay, casting resin elements that I created with a mold, as well as some natural and found objects. I used AA coloration sprays and I love the way it made my project pop!
