Industrial ATC set with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here and today I am going to share my ATC cards trio made with new Art Anthology stencil and a lot of Art Anthology paints and mists.

 

This project was born as a ” stencil and paint” project. I loved the stencil and the new stone effect paint and just used them over three ATC blanks.

Then when it was dry I thought about the theme and the best one to add to concrete stone effect paint was something urban.

So I used skyline die and made layers of houses and then added stormy sky effects with different paint and mists.

You can take a look at each one of three ATC pieces here:

 

 

And as always I have a Snapguide tutorial for you to see and to use in a future:

Reef Velvet

Concrete Stone Effects

Brick Stone Effects

Plush Colorations spray

Wooden wall hanger

Wooden wall hanger with Josefine

Hi and welcome back!

Today I’m sharing a small project with you using a piece of birch wood and Art Anthology paints to create a wall hanger. Even though it’s a small piece of art, I had a lot of fun creating it!

I prepared a video tutorial for you, showing you how I created the image on the birch wood:

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial 🙂

Do you ever paint on wood? I love how the Art Anthology paints turn out! They have a very distinct sheen to them. It’s hard to explain, but I encourage you to give it a try and see for yourself 🙂

Here are the supplies I used:

By The Sea – Lighthouse Frame

Hello creative friends, glad to be sharing another DT post. For today’s project I made a mixed media, somewhat altered lighthouse frame. I decided not to add a photo yet (needing one that’s just right), instead I removed the glass piece and replaced it with pattern paper and a wooden sentiment, I saved the glass piece for when I add the photo later.

I love playing with lots of texture, color and embellishments.  I used a combination of Art Anthology Colorations color sprays – Sandcastle, Warm, Waimea Bay and Peacock Feathers, Velvet Mediums – Kona, Fiji and Limeaid, Sorbet medium – Kenyan Copper, Gemstone medium – Amber and Stone Effects – Bone. Everything came together so nicely, it’s a great way to relax and have some fun.

Hope you feel inspired to create your own… you will find a step by step tutorial with a complete list of supplies posted below.

Enjoy…

Recycled ” Dream” wall decoration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second April Art Anthology post.

 

This time I decided to show you how you can use your old and messy paint brushes and to make a lovely wall decoration using them with Art Anthology paints and a stencil.

As you can see the project base is made of 21 old paint brushes. My problem is that I never clean my brushes in a proper way. I do clean them here and there, but finally they are done and gone and the only thing you can make with them is an altered project.

Lucky me, I never buy the expensive brushes and those are all kind of a general $ store ones.

So then life gives you messy ” lemons” make a nice lemonade and in my case make a nice altered project.

Here you can see some close- ups to this project:

 

 

 

You can see the full step by step tutorial here on a Snapguide:

Blooming altered box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Art Anthology post.

Spring is in the air and the best way to celebrate Spring is to make a bright and full of flowers project.

So this altered wooden box is my tribute to Spring and to everything new. Why is it everything new? As this is my very first time to make self made painted flowers and the very first time to use Foamiran to make those flowers.

I heard about this product that is actually the very thin foam. You can die cut it, paint it and then shrink it a bit with your heat gun to get those great, pretty much like real, flowers.

So for my very first attempt to use this foam I used Art Anthology paints and colorations to see if it works. And it worked just perfect.

Here are some close – ups to the flowers and then I made a tutorial to show you how you can make  the flowers and to embellish your $ store simple wooden box with these flowers.

 

 

 

You can see the full step by step tutorial here on a Snapguide:

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.
