Altered NoteBook Cover W/ Brandy for the Mood Board Challenge!

Hi there! Brandy here to share a notebook cover I altered!

I was inspired by this month’s mood board challenge on the the Art Anthology group page, Adventures in Art! Stop by to see other team members work or to share yours with us!! We’d love to have you!

I used my new Twinkle Lights Stencil and Barbie Colorations Spray for background color.  CONCRETE Stone Effects and REEF Velvet Paint worked perfect with my LATTICE and TWILIGHT Stencils for texture. Then I gave it all a grey tint with my STERLING Colorations Spray to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I’ve inspired you to try some of my techniques with a few Art Anthology products!

Polarized effect layout

Hello crafters !

I want to show you something I create on the Art Anthology cruise during a crop session. It’s a layout, where I used a picture of my daughter with polarized sunglasses, and I tried to recreate the polarized effect with AA mediums…

I am pretty satisfied with the result ! Strangely, using the same technique, I got two different tones with metal and chipboard/paper…

On the layout and the white gesso covered embellishments, I applied first a coat of Sandcastle Colorations spray, then few coats of Kona Velvet medium for the base.

Then I applied Mermaid Sorbet in the center, followed by a layer of Vegas Gold Sorbet. See the difference between the metal (flower, doilies and leaves) and the chipboard (title) or paper flowers ?

I made a quick video to show you how to create this polarized effect :

Thank you for stopping by today. Have fun with this new technique and see you soon…

Friendship card with the New Shines

Hi there !

Did you try the new Shine mediums already ? The colors are so bright I had to use them to create a peppy Friendship card !

I created my background with the Sand Stone Effect medium and the new Twinkle Lights stencil on a white paper sprayed with Sandcastle Colorations spray.

Then I stamped the flowers and sentiment with black ink, and colored the flowers with the new Shine medium in Ruby Red, Canary Yellow, Sunrise Orange and Kelly Green.

Some fussy cut, few more Ruby red strokes, and my card was done !

Here is my video tutorial to guide you step-by-step through my creative process :

Thank you for your time reviewing this project. I have a wonderful day and see you soon !

Curious Cat Canvas

Hello everyone! Today I am hoping to inspire you with this fun canvas project using the *New* Shine Dimensional paints from Art Anthology! Below I have included a Snapguide tutorial with step by step instructions on how this was created.

The Shine Dimensional paints are vibrant and smooth. When dry they are semi-translucent and have a beautiful hi-gloss finish. They are available in 11 beautiful colors.

For this project I chose to use them to create a water colored effect as my background. They react very well when mixed with water this way as seen below.


For my canvas, I used the following products from Art Anthology:
Shine Dimensional paints
Ocean  Royal 

Minx Shimmering Inks
Panache  Stargazer 

Rose Swirl Stencil

From Recycling Bin to Art!

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Today I am sharing this fun repurposed bottle project using  some amazing Art Anthology products! Products Used available by clicking the links below.
Colorations Plush
Colorations Wild Orchid
Fairy Dust Ice
Minx Gold Dust
Pebbles Stencil

Start with a clean glass bottle. Coat with two or three coats of white gesso allowing each coat to dry.

Add molded focal such as the cherub head and wings used here. Also add flowers and metal embellishments. Use a strong adhesive that can stand wet media. Once all are glued down coat them all in heavy white gesso. I also added some white crackle paste through the Pebbles stencil on the neck and allowed it to dry and crackle. This added a bit more texture.


Next add the Colorations Sprays and Fairy Dust Spray Ice. Alternate between them and dry each as they are added. Once the color was dry I re-coated the face in white gesso so it stood out.

I added a script stamp in black all over the open areas. Drips of Gold Dust Minx were used to accent areas and also the hair. Gel medium was dabbed in areas around the embellishments and then sprinkled with a mixture of gold micro beads and gold glass glitters. Once all was dry I brushed a pearlizing medium over the bottle and focal as well as some of the flowers.

A large rose painted with Art anthology colorations in the same colors was added along with a metal butterfly embellishment.
Lastly I added some chain with a pearl charm to the top as an accent.

Some other views….


Thanks so much for visiting the blog and viewing my post today! This was a very fun redo! I love to recycle junk into Art!
I hope that you will share your creations with us on Facebook HERE.

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!!


Thanks for stopping by today!!
