You can follow my creative proces with the Snap tutorial I created for you:

Faux leather book wooden box

Hi there !

We are at the end of August, back-to-school is already behind us, it’s time to dive into books… Wait what ? Yes books… You know I’m talking about mixed media, right ? My project for today is an altered wooden box, in shape of a book ! And what did I do with it ? Make it look like a leather covered book !

The technique I used to create this leather look is imprint a rubber stamp into Mud Texture paste ! You just have to apply a layer of Mud paste, let it dry almost competely and then press the stamp over the paste and remove carefully…

Once dry, you can paint it as you want. Here I used Chocolate Sorbet (you can also use the Kona Velvet) and Cocoa Shine to give this old leather look.

And I used Teal Velvet and Copper Metallic from the Patina Texture set to give an antique look at my metal embellishments.

This imprint technique is a real deal ! It does look like emboss leather !

As always, I made a video tutorial for you to follow this particular technique and enjoy the transformation of a plain wood box into an leather like book…

Thank you for stopping by the blog today ! I hope you liked this new project… See you soon for another one !

Have a great day !

Create Your Own Paradise/Journal Page by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a fun journal page using many Art Anthology products. This page incorporated texture using AA’s Poppy and Dottie stencil as well as some embossed paper. Below is a YOUTUBE video so you can watch my creative process. I love creating in my art journal, it allows me to experiment with techniques and products as well as it’s emotionally and mentally therapeutic. This journal page has added textures by using Art Anthology’s stencil in Poppy and Dottie as well as embossed cardstock. There is a video below for your pleasure, to view my creative process. A combination of Colorations sprays assisted with achieving a watercolor effect for the background and flowers. And AA’s Shine, Sorbet and Velvet paints also assisted with some textures and colors. Hope you enjoyed this post and give journaling a try. Express your thoughts and emotion through art, it’s liberating ! xoxo Toni

Altered Chinese fan with the patina set

Hello there !

I’m so glad to be back on the Art anthology blog ! It was a long summer without crafting during my vacation and it’s so good to create again ! What do I have for you today ? Another mixed media project ! This time I altered a Chinese wood fan using the Patina set, stencils, Mud Paste… Take a look !

After a coat of Gesso, I painted entirely the fan with Rose Velvet medium. Next, I used the Floral tiles stencil with Teal Matte from the Patina set. Once dry, I applied Mud paste over the Blossom stencil on each side of the fan.

To colorize and give dimension to the cherry blossom branch, I use the Seafom Stone Texture and the Copper Metallic from the same Patina set. To make it pop from the background, I just use a brown pen to outline the design. I also use the Copper on the edge of the fan.

After that, I just glued the embellishments covered in white gesso on the fan, and painted them with Rose Velvet or Teal matte (Patina set) before adding touches of Copper Metallic.

If you like to know more about the process of this project, you could watch the video tutorial here or on the AA channel there (where you could find other beautiful projects…).

Thank you for stopping by today ! I hope to see you very soon for another project…

Magical Fairy Altered Canvas w/ Brandy

Have you seen the gorgeous Moodboard Challenge we have going on? I was inspired to make something pretty!

I used my LUNA Stencil for my base texture….it fit with the moon the fairy is sitting on great! Then I tried a new effect by adding more texture with my mud and Twilight Stencil and then putting glitter over the top while it was still wet.

The SKY and Barbie Colorations Sprays fit perfectly with the moodboard colors!

Splatters of watered down COTTON Velvet Paint tied my background together so nicely!!

I love how it turned out!

Here is a process/tutorial video to see just how I created it!

FLY mini-book, by Marleen

Hello everyone, Marleen here with a mini-book tutorial for you.

My inspiration came from everywhere!! Do you remember my earlier post about the lace book cover I made?? Well I promised you to show the inside later on. Guess what, the cover was too small for all those pages.
So I made a bigger cover now and finished the inside pages!

I used many many Art Anthology stencils you can find them all HERE.

Here you can see the video tutorial:

Hope it inspired you all 😉
