Measured Moments – Art Journal Page

Hi everyone, Maria here, so happy to be back with another DT project. I’ve decided to create another page for my Vintage Art Journal. My inspiration started with the quote I used, but it was shortly followed by my love for all things vintage. I used a the “scales” stencil, several colorations sprays, a combination of metallic effects and sorbet paints. Love how all of the colors used blended so well together.

Enjoy…

You can see my process start to finish here…..

Mixed Media cards tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second May Art Anthology post!

Today I am going to share a totally different project. This time I am going tom show you how you can use Art Anthology products to make two clean and simple cards using the very same stamp, two different Art Anthology stencils and Art Anthology paints and colorations.

 

As you can see these cards are made with the same stamped sentiment, but them the cardstock, colors and mediums made them totally different.

Here are the cards again:

It’s Time For Spring by Toni

Happy May everyone, our mood board this month provides crisp yummy colors to inspire you with this months projects.

April showers bring May flowers so my next project is all about making these cute little blossoms. First let me thank Holly Young (youtubber ) for her money saving tip on making the fluffy material for the flowers. And to provide more

I started with a canvas and utilized the back side to provide some dimension to my piece. Using Art Anthology Mud and some Coloration Sprays I created a brick background.

Art Anthology Metal Effects Silver with a little bit of Black Soot DI gave my chipboard gate and clock a pewter look.

Reindeer moss added to inside of canvas provided a nice mulchy area to start adding my flowers. Don’t let these little blossoms intimidate you, they are a bit tedious but so easy and so much fun. 

Hope this allowed you to discover a new way to use Art Anthology’s vibrant products. Wishing you a garden of creativity. xoxo Toni

Nautical shadow box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first May Art Anthology project.

I am a big fan of cheap $ store products that can be altered and embellished.

So with Art Anthology great paints, colorations and stencils I made this Nautical shadow box and as you can see it looks fabulous!

 

I decided not to cover the inside of the shadow part with paint and the white space makes the inside stencilled piece to shine.

Here are some close – ups to this piece:

Pretty Altered Canvas with Brandy!

Hi Art Anthology Fans! Today I have a really pretty canvas to share with you!
When I saw the image of this lady, I knew it would make the perfect centerpiece one day…. I guess today’s the day! 🙂

I used my Cracked stencil and put embossing powder on top of my mud before drying.  Can you feel the power coming from that texture??!! Plus, I used Sterling Colorations spray to make them pop even more.

The Waimea and Wild Orchid colorations sprays look awesome together. 🙂

To finish the piece I gave it a title. I think “trust your crazy ideas” is just perfect.
Of course there’s a Snapguide tutorial for you!

Recycled ” Dream” wall decoration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second April Art Anthology post.

 

This time I decided to show you how you can use your old and messy paint brushes and to make a lovely wall decoration using them with Art Anthology paints and a stencil.

As you can see the project base is made of 21 old paint brushes. My problem is that I never clean my brushes in a proper way. I do clean them here and there, but finally they are done and gone and the only thing you can make with them is an altered project.

Lucky me, I never buy the expensive brushes and those are all kind of a general $ store ones.

So then life gives you messy ” lemons” make a nice lemonade and in my case make a nice altered project.

Here you can see some close- ups to this project:

Blooming altered box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Art Anthology post.

Spring is in the air and the best way to celebrate Spring is to make a bright and full of flowers project.

So this altered wooden box is my tribute to Spring and to everything new. Why is it everything new? As this is my very first time to make self made painted flowers and the very first time to use Foamiran to make those flowers.

I heard about this product that is actually the very thin foam. You can die cut it, paint it and then shrink it a bit with your heat gun to get those great, pretty much like real, flowers.

So for my very first attempt to use this foam I used Art Anthology paints and colorations to see if it works. And it worked just perfect.

Here are some close – ups to the flowers and then I made a tutorial to show you how you can make  the flowers and to embellish your $ store simple wooden box with these flowers.
