It’s Time For Spring by Toni

Happy May everyone, our mood board this month provides crisp yummy colors to inspire you with this months projects.

April showers bring May flowers so my next project is all about making these cute little blossoms. First let me thank Holly Young (youtubber ) for her money saving tip on making the fluffy material for the flowers. And to provide more

I started with a canvas and utilized the back side to provide some dimension to my piece. Using Art Anthology Mud and some Coloration Sprays I created a brick background.

Art Anthology Metal Effects Silver with a little bit of Black Soot DI gave my chipboard gate and clock a pewter look.

Reindeer moss added to inside of canvas provided a nice mulchy area to start adding my flowers. Don’t let these little blossoms intimidate you, they are a bit tedious but so easy and so much fun. 

Hope this allowed you to discover a new way to use Art Anthology’s vibrant products. Wishing you a garden of creativity. xoxo Toni

Collect Beautiful Moments by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new project. It’s springtime here in the U.S. one of my favorite times of the year, so I decided to create a butterfly canvas.  It was time to bust out the Sculpture Medium. I’ve been wanting to play with this for some time. Once my cheesecloth was completely dry it was stiff as a board and took to Art Anthology’s mediums and spray beautifully.

I think this will be a pretty addition to my altered canvases in my studio. I also utilized my new Paper Clay Moulds and created some of my own embellishments to enhance my canvas. 

Wishing you a beautiful springtime and hoping you “Collect Beautiful Moments” along the way.

For your enjoyment I have including a Snapguide tutorial below for my step x step process.

Mixed media Christmas ornament

Hi there ! Valerie today to show you how to upcycle your old ornament with Art Anthology paints !

I have more than few of those old scratched ornament in my basement, and wanted to upgrade them for this Christmas, so I came up with an idea, and I will share it with you… I started with the ugly blue one on the picture and ended with the red on the back ! I made a video tutorial following the exact same techniques to make a white one… You will find the tutorial and the list of AA products at the end of this post.

The result is an incredible textured brand new ornament, and you can make in the color of your choice !

After applying gesso over the ornament, I use Dimensional paint in Stone effect to cover it, plus gelato and gold Fairy Dust. Flowers are covered with gold Metal Effect paint or Red Velvet Sorbet.

Here is the white and gold :

Boho Beauty

Hi all you crafty peeps… Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend ! My project today is a 12 x 12 layout of my daughter I recently took. Her outfit inspired me to give this layout a bohemian look. DSC08088

I used the Art Anthology paints to stamp my paisley prints for the backdrop, and Colorations & Fairy Dust Sprays to enhance the flowers as well as the background.

Means this was a boho style layout I had to do a little macrame weaving on this page. I have a full Snapguide tutorial below to show you how I created this weave effect on my page as well as how I customized my background paper with splashes of beautiful colors and shine.

The Metal Effects paints really provides that pretty metallic shine needed to enhance these flowers and frames. Once again, Art Anthology products always deliver the results needed to add that pazazz to your projects. I hope you were inspired to get our your jars and add some color to your projects. Creatively yours, TonitoniSIG
