Altered NoteBook Cover W/ Brandy for the Mood Board Challenge!

Hi there! Brandy here to share a notebook cover I altered!

I was inspired by this month’s mood board challenge on the the Art Anthology group page, Adventures in Art! Stop by to see other team members work or to share yours with us!! We’d love to have you!

I used my new Twinkle Lights Stencil and Barbie Colorations Spray for background color.  CONCRETE Stone Effects and REEF Velvet Paint worked perfect with my LATTICE and TWILIGHT Stencils for texture. Then I gave it all a grey tint with my STERLING Colorations Spray to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I’ve inspired you to try some of my techniques with a few Art Anthology products!

Having Fun With Shine Paints by Toni

Hi everyone, I’m up on the blog today with a fun tutorial to use to create several projects all at once. I’ve been having so much fun with AA’s new Shine paints. Super glossy, semi-transparent, no glitter or shimmer. They are gorgeous and provide that dimensional look like all other AA paints, but once dry they still look wet. Just like glass ! I decided to play with my Gelli Plate and stencil from AA as well.  Let’s get started !

I actually got 3 projects out of my monoprint (a journal page, a Father’s Day card and a layout for my antique photo album).  First up let’s get our plate ready.

I decided I wanted to use AA’s Pipe Dream Stencil with this project. The Shine paints I used are Onyx, Cocoa, and Sunrise.

I first applied Onyx and Cocoa to my plate using a brayer.

Then I used the stencil and applied Sunrise .

Here is the print I achieved with the paints and stencil, I then pressed white cardstock, tissue paper, tags and then kraft card stock one by one on the print to get several backgrounds for different projects.  

I first used the tissue paper print and ripped it in pieces to collage to create this journal page.

The white card stock was used for this Father’s Day card below. 

And the next project is a layout I created using the kraft paper and the tag that was gelli printed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

On this layout I also used one of our “New” stencils Floral Tile with distress oxide ink.  Hope you enjoyed this post and will give our Shine’s and stencils a try. 

The following Art Anthology products were used.

Stencils –Floral Tile, Pipe Dream

Shine – Cocoa, Sunrise, Onyx

Friendship card with the New Shines

Hi there !

Did you try the new Shine mediums already ? The colors are so bright I had to use them to create a peppy Friendship card !

I created my background with the Sand Stone Effect medium and the new Twinkle Lights stencil on a white paper sprayed with Sandcastle Colorations spray.

Then I stamped the flowers and sentiment with black ink, and colored the flowers with the new Shine medium in Ruby Red, Canary Yellow, Sunrise Orange and Kelly Green.

Some fussy cut, few more Ruby red strokes, and my card was done !

Here is my video tutorial to guide you step-by-step through my creative process :

Thank you for your time reviewing this project. I have a wonderful day and see you soon !

Curious Cat Canvas

Hello everyone! Today I am hoping to inspire you with this fun canvas project using the *New* Shine Dimensional paints from Art Anthology! Below I have included a Snapguide tutorial with step by step instructions on how this was created.

The Shine Dimensional paints are vibrant and smooth. When dry they are semi-translucent and have a beautiful hi-gloss finish. They are available in 11 beautiful colors.

For this project I chose to use them to create a water colored effect as my background. They react very well when mixed with water this way as seen below.


For my canvas, I used the following products from Art Anthology:
Shine Dimensional paints
Ocean  Royal 

Minx Shimmering Inks
Panache  Stargazer 

Rose Swirl Stencil 

 

Check out How to Create a Fun Canvas With New Shines by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog and viewing my post! I hope that I have sparked your creativity.

#SummerVibes Inspiration Challenge Canvas with Brandy

Hi there Art fans! Brandy here today to share a canvas I made for our #SummerVibes Challenge on the our Facebook Fan page, Adventures in art!
Don’t forget…All members that post and share their #summervibe project will be put into a drawing for one of Marleen van Meerendonk‘s new stencils!!!
Here is our inspiration for you! Any project any style…just use some Art Anthology product on it!!

I decided to make a canvas for my project.  Of course I let those blue skies and water and all that lavender inspire me!

I have created many very subtle textures in the background of my canvas by using my Hurricane, Bubbles, and Take Flight stencils! It wasn’t easy but I tried really hard to keep my coloring to a minimum…so the color that was there would stand out !

Just three simple products were used… my Sky Colorations Spray, and my Orchid and Reef Velvet paints! I built up my Sky color, by adding a few layers of sprays and and watered down my Velvet’s to use them more as watercolors.

I hunted around on the internet to find a title to work with and found a poem by Roald Dahl….LOL, gives me a #SummerVibe, how about you!!??

Here is a tutorial/process video if you’d like to see how I made it!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I’ve inspired you to create a summer project to come and share with us!!!

Ink resist technique layout

Hello !

I’m back from the Art Anthology cruise (you have to signed up for the next one by the way !) with a new layout and a cool ink resist technique :

Did you know that you can create a resist effect with any of our AA mediums ? I choose the Glass Sorbet because it dries transparent, but depending on what you want, you can choose any other color ! I applied the Glass over the Retro stencil and dried it before adding colors…

I choose two tones of green to spray over the medium : Granny Smith and Clover Colorations sprays. Same on some of the die cuts used as embellishments.

You can also spot Glorious Colorations spray, as well as Gold Dust Minx and Gilded Gold Fairy Dust spray on this layout.

I made a video tutorial for you to see in action how to create this ink resist effect with the Glass Sorbet. You can watch it here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

If you want to see another project where I used the resist technique (but with gel medium instead of Glass Sorbet), take a look at my Spring panel (there is a video too)…

Thank you for stopping by today ! I wish you a great Memorial Day and wonderful week to come ! See you in a few …
