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!

Scrapbooking layout built with inks

Hello !

Valerie here to show you how to build a stunning background only with inks and papers !

Few stripes of paper and two inks are enough to create dimensions on the background. I used the Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Warm with a paint brush and water (see the link to products at the end of this post).

I layered pieces of papers from the same stack and added three die cut sprayed with Waimea Bay to drawn the eye to the picture. Drops of gesso are the final touches to this layout.

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

Thank you for stopping by the blog today and for reading this post. See you in two weeks for another project !
