Make your own rust effects with Art Anthology!

Hello Art Anthology Fans!! Dream Team member Brandy here today to share my project inspired by our moodboard over on the Facebook group page, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!
This month’s board features some awesome rusty objects! If you haven’t played along yet, what are you waiting for!? 🙂

I’ve heard of other companies having mediums that look like rust, so naturally I had to see if we could make our own with Art Anthology products! Turns out, I only had to add one ingredient to some paint……and it was sand!

With a combination of “sandy” Kenyan Copper Sorbet and Radiance Minx Shimmering Ink I was able to come up with something that looks pretty darn close! 🙂

I made a Snapguide tutorial for this project!

Spring mixed media egg panel

Hello crafters !

If you haven’t decorate your house for Spring or Easter, I have an idea of project for you… an egg panel, filled with flowers, mixed media techniques and Art Anthology products of course ! It even matches our AA moodboard !

Take a look at the finished project :

The background of this egg panel was built with the Retro stencil and Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Sandcastle. The border was painted with Bronze Metal Effect dimensional paint, and the chipboards with Aloha Velvet paint.

Another close-up to see the beautiful effect created with the stencil :

You find will the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

I hope I gave you some inspiration to create something of your own. See you soon for another project…

Have Fun With A Rusty Technique by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here inspired by our beautiful mood board this month, with yummy texture and deep bold colors. Rust is probably one of my favorite color palettes to create with and I was so excited to start working with it.

I found an egg crate in the trash and decided to alter it as an Easter project. Wonderful AA products provided easy transformation for this trash article.

The cross was made from air dry clay and then crackled with AA’s products seeping into the cracks.

With some texture powder added to my paints it gave me a nice gritty texture.

This was such a fun and unexpected transformation. I hope this has inspired you to get creative with our products. Wishing you a blessed Easter Holiday and creative days ahead. 

The following Art Anthology products were used:

Velvet- Portabello, Terracotta

Stone Effect-Sandstone

Metal Effect-Gold

Sorbet-Chocolate, Mint Julep, Cayman, Black Leather Jacket

Summer Colors With Brandy!


Hello Art Anthology fans! It’s not even spring here in the Rockies, but I was the feeling the sun shining with this project!!
To create something I could use for a layout, but be a little different, I dug an old embroidery hoop out of my stash.  Brighten up any space…all i need is to choose a photo! 🙂


A little Brick Stone Effects brightened my bubbles texture, and some Indulgence Minx Ink softened it to perfection.
Filling in the blanks with some Glorious Colorations spray looks like sunshine!

I used some Pixies sorbet to and my blossom stencil for some awesome texture.


Here’s a tutorial on how I made made this beauty!

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!
