De-light-ed : a scrapbooking layout by Valerie

Hello crafty people !

I have a new layout to share with you today, with a design inspired by the subject of the picture I choose… When I was in Istanbul, I stopped by a lamp merchant in the Grand Bazaar. He sold beautiful lamps made of colored glass, and I did not resist to take a picture…

I built this layout like a mosaic, mixing classic designs and modern color blocks, as Istanbul appears to me, a mix of ancient history and appetite for modernity. Take a look at the result :

On a green paper, I started to built the background with brown ink and stamps, with the chain stamp and flourish designs looking like chandeliers.

Keyhole stencil and Copper Metal Effect medium added some dimensions to the page.

The color blocks were created with ink and heavy white cardstock. The color are : Colorations spray Indigo (blue), Colorations spray Patience (pink) and Radience Minx Shimmering ink (orange).

I also spray Sandcastle Colorations over the background before adhering the blocks.

If you want to learn more about how I created this layout, watch the video here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today ! I hope you enjoy this new project as much as I enjoyed creating it for you !

See you soon for another whatever-I-wil-make !

The Best Day Ever by Toni

Hi everyone… some of my most favorite times  are spent outside, in the garden, or taking walks, and I love to incorporate textures and colors that I experience outside on my layouts. Hope you enjoy this process. 

My layout is of my sister, brother-in-law and niece and we were all at the beach and it was definitely “The Best Day Ever. I started my backdrop using AA’s Mud Texture Paste and Stone Effect Concrete ran through a brick stencil and then dribbled Colorations in Avocado in between the bricks for a moss effect.

My flowers were plain white flowers that I hot glued together and made individual blooms and then once again spritzed them with Colorations in Avocado and Granny Smith and sprinkled with some pretty coordinating glitter.

Anybody that knows me knows I love textures and using my Colorations again I colored my art stones to tucked them inbetween and underneath my florals. 

Once again Art Anthology paints come to the rescue to provide just what is needed to make a layout successful. Get your hands on some of these amazing products, you will not be disappointed. Here’s wishing you “The Best Day Ever”. 

The following Art Anthology products were used:

Mud Texture Paste

Colorations- Granny Smith, Avocado

Stone Effects – Concrete

Garden Tags by Jenn

Garden Tags JDuBell Art Anthology

Hello! Art Anthology Fans and Friends! I am up on the blog today showing you these beautiful Garden Tags using Art Anthology products! The colors are vibrant and easy for anyone to achieve with these products! The best news is that Art Anthology offers an amazing variety of colors for you to choose from!

What you will need for this project:

Art Anthology Colorations Sprays

Art Anthology Minx shimmering Inks

Art Anthology Stencils

Art Anthology Sorbets

All other supplies are listed in Snapguide tutorial on the bottom of this post.

Start this project with a blank chipboard tag. Mine is 7″X3 1/4″.

Add stenciling using crackle paste in white. Make sure to dry completely between stencils. Crackle paste also cracks more when allowed to dry naturally rather than using a heat tool.

For my tags I used the following Art Anthology Products:

Stencils: MVM Diamond Grunge, Bubbles, MVM Lotus

Colorations Sprays: Ink Spot, Peacock Feathers, Sky, Plush

Shimmering Inks: Enchanting, Stargazer

Sorbet: Linen

Once my background looked the way I wanted it to I coated with a clear glue and seal. This seals the inks and makes them pop!

Once everything is dry I assembled it all using flowers that were dyed in same colors to match, TH paper dolls, chipboards, jute string, cheesecloth, pearls, drywall net tape, and sentiments.

Thanks so much for reading my post! I hope you enjoy this project and are inspired to create some for yourself or to give as gifts! For the full tutorial please look at Snapguide below.

Thanks!!

Moody Blues by Toni

Hi everyone… have you seen our mood board this month ? It’s plump full of inspiration and gorgeous blue tones. 

For my inspiration I pulled from the beautiful blues of course, the wood grain on the door, the graytones, the pretty mosaic print and the funny circles. Here is what I came up with.

I had a photo of my daughter in black and white and I reprinted it in an ombre effect with the blues for my focal point. The background first I used our pretty gothic stencil and sponged on some Sorbet-Black Leather Jacket and once dry I ran through Mud Texture Paste through the same stencil.The it was time for some fun with splatters here and there and I also dipped my lids in the paint for some pretty circles. The photo above you can see what a pretty shine the Minx Shimmering Inks provides on your projects. Just dripped this down the sides of my layout. It’s always fun to use unexpected items for your titles, these were little wood pieces that I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hold, using archival black ink I stamped my letters and added the brads. With the addition of some crystal seed beads in my flowers and some sterling glass glitter for added texture. I hope you will join us this month and be inspired by our beautiful mood board, please also post it on our Facebook page HERE so we all can be inspired by your creativity.  Happy creating xoxo Toni

Mechanical Love by Toni

Hi everyone, hope you are having a creative month and enjoying our wonderful mood board provided for inspiration. 

My layout is featuring my daddy that was taken probably about 60 years ago. He was a metal pourer and made machine parts. Hard and dangerous work, but he loved it. One of my most favorite thing about layouts is layering and dimension and this layout has that and more. 

Art Anthology paints mixed with craft sand that I purchased at the $1.00 store gives an great way to create your own rusty wonderfulness.

The Metal Effects Sillver stippled on the chipboard gave it a metal-like appearance that peeps through the rusty goodness.

This color palette is one of my fav’s and I enjoyed working with my fathers’ photo so much. I hope this has inspired you to go get yourself some craft sand and mix away with your paints. I really think this will work well in our Art Anthology Stencils as well …… hummm ideas for my next project perhaps…..

Have a spectacular week and for your pleasure check out my Snapguide Tutorial for a step x step process for my layout.

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!
