“Breath In Breath Out’ Mixed Media Layout

Hi everyone, today I want to share how very simple it is to add some mixed media elements to your scrapbook layout. Mixed media has gotten so popular but still so many are intimidated by the word “Mixed Media”. I’m here today to tell you if you are a scrapper or card maker, chances are you are already doing mixed media.

Wikipedia says: Mixed media is an artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed. Assemblages and collages are two common examples of art using different media that will make use of different materials including cloth, paper, wood and found objects. So, what that means if you are a card maker you use paper, sometimes stamping with ink, adding embellishments, sometimes markers etc…. you are already doing mixed media. So don’t let the word scare you any longer. Let’s get started with this very simple layout.  I really wanted the colors on this to be very subtle so that my photo would really be the focal point. So the Art Anthology paints I used were our Metal Effects and our Stone Effects (all products will be listed below in the video discription)With the use of a couple of our stencils (and we have so many to choose from) this provided added patterns to my paper as well as texture. With the addition of some seed beads (because I can’t ever get enough texture… lol) and pretty flowers, my layout was finished. I hope you give this a try. Below is a process video of me creating this layout. If you have any questions or would like to see the designers use the product in a certain way, be sure to follow us on Facebook HERE and just ask us questions. We are all here to help one another on our creative journey. xoxo Toni

Scrapbooking layout in red and blue

Hello everyone !

Back with a layout this time, playing with Velvet, stencil and ink for a neutral gender look, as the picture I choose featured my daughter and my nephew… So blue, red and black are my color choices…

After using a chicken wire stamp on the edges of the paper, I applied the Beyond the Reef medium and the Desire Velvet over the Wheel stencil to achieve my background.

The Beyond the Reef medium also colored few of the tags of my layering.

It’s amazing how the color differ with the thickness… when use as paint, I obtained a beautiful water-like blue, and as medium over the stencil, this blue is very deep !

Before layering my papers and picture, I used the Raider Colorations spray to create the small ink spots on my background…

Here is the video tutorial if you want to take a look at my creative process…

Thank you for your time, see you soon for another project…

Layout with the new Velvet…

Hello there !

New Velvet have hit the store, and as they are bright, I had to create something with them !

The new mediums weren’t the only things in my DT box, I also found plenty of new stencils and I choose the Double Flower stencil by our DT member Marleen to build my background…

I outlined the stencil with a black pen first, and once done, I used a black Sharpie to fill the lines. I continued with the stencil to create flowers along a down left – upper right diagonal.

Once all the flowers were drawn, I started to paint the inside of the flowers and leaves. Taffy Velvet and Beyond the Reef for the petals, Gecko Green for the leaves and Dayglow Yellow for the pistils.

I then added some Dayglow Yellow on the corners before adding my title, and paint a mat for my picture in the same color.

You can find hereafter (or on the AA YouTube channel) the video tutorial to learn how to create this kind of background :

Thank you for stopping by today and for reading this post ! See you soon for another project…

Dream Little One..A Layout by Jenn

Hello everyone!! Jenn here sharing this beautiful layout I created featuring my gorgeous granddaughter Serah!
For my layout background I used a sheet of designer paper matted with a heavier black cardstock underneath it.
I applied a layer of clear gesso to the paper to prepare the surface for wet media. Once that was dry I stenciled a random pattern using a crackle texture paste. I left this to dry several hours.

I then sprayed AA Colorations in Sky and dried with a heat tool. I then added water to some AA Minx in Stargazer and pooled it lightly in some areas to achieve the shade of blue.I finished it by adding some more splatters of AA Colorations and some white acrylic paint mixed with a bit of water to thin it. Once I was happy with the color and it was dry I chose my flowers and other embellishments to compliment the sweet photo.

For these colors and many more amazing products check out the online store!

After changing my composition around several times I decided on this and adhered all of the element with glue. I brushed over some areas with mat gel and white gesso and then sprinkled them with glitter and art stones for a finishing touch!

Build Your Wings Layout by Toni

Here I enhanced the paper using  a couple Coloration sprays…. Salmon and Sedona. There are so many Colorations to choose from, this will allow you to custom create your background paper to match or highlight your photos. Using Art Anthology Lattice Stencil provided a fun way to create some wings on my photo. Using Mud Paste and the addition of Diamond Dust glitter while paste is still wet really enhanced the wings. Hope you are inspired to add some Art Anthology products to your next scrapbook layouts. Below is a list of supplies list and also a process video for your pleasure.

How to make snow with Mud…

Hello everyone !

We are all in full Winter mode, so why not try to create a Winter project with cold color and snow ? That’s what I did in this layout :

After inking the edges of my background paper with Warm Colorations spray and water, I applied Mud paste over the Gothic stencil, and on the edges too. I did the same with a bunch of coordinate tags.

You know my love for fussy cutting… So I did cut out those branches and snowflakes as my embellishments…

The title of my layout was made with the Expressions stencil and Silver Metal Effect medium :

As usual, you will be able to follow my complete creative process in this video, available as the other DT videos on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for your time, see you soon for another project…
