River rocks.

Hi everybody!

My vacation in France inspired me a lot.
My dog MacL loves to dive in the river to get me some rocks.

So I had a lot of them and I thought it would be nice to paint them.

First I wrote this text with acrylic ink.

And when I got home I started to paint them with the new Shine Dimensional medium.

Add Stone Effects with a Stencil to the canvas.

Stick the stones to the canvas.

Fill all the gaps with translucent glue and fill it up with Art Stones.

Then spray with different colors Colorations to give it all some color and give the finishing touch with Fairy Dust.

Some detail pics, hope you can see the gold shimmering from the Fairy Dust!?

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!

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 …

From Recycling Bin to Art!

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Today I am sharing this fun repurposed bottle project using  some amazing Art Anthology products! Products Used available by clicking the links below.
Colorations Plush
Colorations Wild Orchid
Fairy Dust Ice
Minx Gold Dust
Pebbles Stencil

Start with a clean glass bottle. Coat with two or three coats of white gesso allowing each coat to dry.

Add molded focal such as the cherub head and wings used here. Also add flowers and metal embellishments. Use a strong adhesive that can stand wet media. Once all are glued down coat them all in heavy white gesso. I also added some white crackle paste through the Pebbles stencil on the neck and allowed it to dry and crackle. This added a bit more texture.


Next add the Colorations Sprays and Fairy Dust Spray Ice. Alternate between them and dry each as they are added. Once the color was dry I re-coated the face in white gesso so it stood out.

I added a script stamp in black all over the open areas. Drips of Gold Dust Minx were used to accent areas and also the hair. Gel medium was dabbed in areas around the embellishments and then sprinkled with a mixture of gold micro beads and gold glass glitters. Once all was dry I brushed a pearlizing medium over the bottle and focal as well as some of the flowers.

A large rose painted with Art anthology colorations in the same colors was added along with a metal butterfly embellishment.
Lastly I added some chain with a pearl charm to the top as an accent.

Some other views….


Thanks so much for visiting the blog and viewing my post today! This was a very fun redo! I love to recycle junk into Art!
I hope that you will share your creations with us on Facebook HERE.

Art Anthology Products are conveniently available online HERE.

As always Stay Creative!!
