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.

“Love Always” by Toni

Hi crafty peeps, Toni here with an altered picture frame. Now I purchased this frame at $1.00 store, and I can’t believe the transformation, it came out wonderful. 

Using Art Anthology products once again brought my entire piece together quite easily. Using Mud Texture Paste and then applying a crackle medium over the top was the base of my project. 

Once your paste has dried and has some amazing cracks, I brushed over the top with Black Leather Jacket Sorbet, allow to somewhat dry and then remove with baby wipes to provide an antiqued look.  The flowers were painted with assorted AA paints, topped them off with Metal Effects Gold.

My key was created from paper clay in a mould and aged to perfection with Mud texture paste and then topped with lots of rusty colors from AA’s paints. Gold wire was wrapped and then secured to frame. Hope this has given you new ideas for those inexpensive buys at the store. xoxo Toni

Just playing – on an art journal page

I played, yes .. and I had fun..!!

Ellie Knol here today…

I decided to just go with the flow… and see where that would take me. I grabbed all sorts of colors that I thought would be nice together, greens, blues, oranges and a red, velvets, sorbets and a gemstones.

Here you can see the first 3 greens: Leaf Sorbet, Limited Velvet and Emerald Gemstones, scraping a tiny bit randomly over the page to make transparant layers.  Don’t try to cover the whole of it with each color, just here and there, and sometimes overlapping. After this step I’ve used lots more colors. For that, go see the Snapguide at the bottom of the post.

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 :
