Mini Mixed Media Tag Album with Brandy

Hello Art Anthology fans! I’m here to share a very fun project! Yes, it’s a mini album, but it also folds out to be a pretty decoration you can add a few pictures to.

I used a few AA stencils and a couple AA paints to create the one of a kind background for each tag page. A couple of pieces of chipboard and some ribbon later, and you have yourself a pretty little mini album. 🙂

As usual, I’ve made a Snapguide Tutorial for this project! Come give it a try!

Steampunk heart canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with a new mixed media project using AA paints, inks and stencil ! I called it “La fabrique a bonheur” (hapiness manufacture).

 

Layering the different mediums was the key to obtain this rusty look. I used two Velvet in Tango and Portobello, and three Colorations sprays, in Juicy, French Toast and Siesta Key.

Texture is created with special powder and heat, dimension by layering cardboard gears and grunge board strips.

You can watch the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, as well as other tutorials…

Thank you for reading this post today. See you next month for another tutorial…

Here is the list of AA products to create this canvas :

Butterflies and Blooms Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Art Anthology fans! Today I’m here to share a pretty mixed media canvas I made,  just waiting to be adorned with a pretty picture!
Can you believe just one scrap of paper can be so inspiring?? Pick out paper or an embellishment you love, and let your imagination and  some AA products do the rest!

Put on chipboard pieces or metal accents, Metal Effects can give the perfect effect!

Mixed media bookmarks

Hello there !

Reading has always been important in my life, and I’m trying to pass the love of reading to my daughters. That’s what inspired me for my project : the love of reading !

mixed media bookmarks

Did you ever try the Art Anthology stencils ? I used one on this project, the Such A Drip stencil, with Velvet Dimensional paint in Mardi Gras color. Look at the incredible texture it makes !

The colorations sprays were handy too to create the background or color the heart stamp.

Mixed media Christmas card

Oh man ! Christmas is close by ! Have you sent your Christmas card already ? If you need an handmade card in a snap, I (Valerie) have the right project for you !

All you will need is white cardstock, some ribbon and of course Art Anthology products ! Gold, brick, clear coat, green spray and stencil… You will find the exact list at the end of this post.

Let’s see some close-ups to have a better look at the dimensions of this Christmas card…

As you can see there is 3 different layers of paints in this project : first Colorations spray with stencil, then gilded clear coat and brick stone effect for the sentiment.

Look at the creamy texture of the Gold Metal effect paint on the edge of the card ! That makes 4 differents textures in one card !

You will find the complete tutorial to create this card on the Art Anthology YouTube channel. It’s quick and easy :

Fairy door scene tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends !

 Irit is here and I welcome to my second December post for Art Anthology.

irit_sig

This time I made a totally different project: altered Fairy door  chipboard set from Tando Creative.

img_7341

I used chipboards and Art Anthology products only with the small add- on of Makin’s Clay molded fairies added to the finished project.

As always I made a small tutorial for you. I even made my own paint tool from the old (or new) tooth brush.

img_7340

Each chipboard piece was painted in the different way to get a different effect. There are stone effect, wood effect, painted  leaves and a mushroom, ” metal” hinges and pastel fairies. And each effect was made just with Art Anthology paints and sprays.

Here is a piece of the project with ” metal” hinges, painted fairy, 3d mushroom and some leaves. You can also see the wooden door and it really looks like an old, peeled wood.

Here is another look at the fairy, leaves, wood and stone effect that was made with paints only.

It was so much fun to make this project and to see the final result!

Thanks for visiting own blog and I really hope that you like my  Fairy project.

See you soon again!

Mixed media Christmas ornament

Hi there ! Valerie today to show you how to upcycle your old ornament with Art Anthology paints !

I have more than few of those old scratched ornament in my basement, and wanted to upgrade them for this Christmas, so I came up with an idea, and I will share it with you… I started with the ugly blue one on the picture and ended with the red on the back ! I made a video tutorial following the exact same techniques to make a white one… You will find the tutorial and the list of AA products at the end of this post.

The result is an incredible textured brand new ornament, and you can make in the color of your choice !

After applying gesso over the ornament, I use Dimensional paint in Stone effect to cover it, plus gelato and gold Fairy Dust. Flowers are covered with gold Metal Effect paint or Red Velvet Sorbet.

Here is the white and gold :
