How to Alter a Hand Soap Dispenser with Karan

Hello friends, Karan here to hose the Art Anthology blog today.  If you are like me, you have hand soap bottles in all your bathrooms and likely a kitchen scent at the tap in your kitchen too. 
Most times i recycle these, some i keep and cut tops off and use in my scraproom, this particular bottle i thought would be fun to alter.  I started off with one of these from the Bath and Body Works Store, and in the beginning it looked like this. This was one of my favorite scents this past winter. I loved the curved oval shape to it and the flat surface on the front would be perfect to hold embellishments.
and after some fun with the paints and mists, here is my end result.
Do not throw those out, you can alter them. I plan to collect a few more and reuse them Here is a step out tutorial below for you on Snapguide.
Hope you have enjoyed my project today.
Materials Used:
Gesso; hand soap container; heat tool;
 Mayan Gold Yellow ( but taxi cab yellow can be used too; Peacock Feathers Mist; Amber Dimentional Medium.

War and sakura : a mixed media layout

Hello !

Valerie today to present you a new project… I create a scrapbooking layout using two colorations sprays, some Mud texture paste with stencil and a Gemstone Effect medium…

So why War and Sakura ? Because the subject of the picture is an Onna-Bugeisha,  a rare female warrior from the high society of Japan. Despite her armor, she is extremely feminine. Did you notice the flowers in her hair ? That’s inspired me for the sakura flowers in my layout.

I started building the background with a resist paper and Colorations sprays in Sandcastle and Patience. I use the Blossom stencil with brown ink, then add some Mud paste over the Cracked stencil.

When the Mud was dried, I stamped cherry blossom in brown ink before painted them with Rhodolite Gemstone Dimensional medium.To complete the layout, I added cherry blossom cut out from a sheet of paper.

You can watch the complete process of this page on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just here :

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you did find some inspiration for your next project !

See you soon for more…

Welcome Fall

Welcome Fall

Hey there, Michelle here with another project today. After a particularly super busy month, I am looking forward to fall bringing cooler temperatures and that time of year that makes some of us slow down, so although Welcome is seen as just a mere greeting to some, it truly is a “Welcome” sight to some of us in many ways, so I hope you enjoy this cute little plaque display using two of my favorite Art Anthology colors!

Just take in that Art Anthology Gemstones Amber, the warmth it exudes just pulls these colors together

Art Anthology Colorations Sprays Sedona and Timeless were meant to be together, adding the sprays in layers allowed me to control how ‘aged’ I wanted them to look, so have fun with it, play around with them by adding and layering your gesso and sprays, I used flowers from the dollar store for some of them, so try different ones out and see how the sprays change each of them.

Check out How to Welcome Fall by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

I hope you enjoyed this project and give it a try, until next time take care and thank you for joining me!

How to Give a Book a New Life as Bookbox !!

Ellie Knol here again, yes, sadly for the last time now, as I step down from the design team after being here for a year..

…but don’t be sad, there are very talented new design team members already here now!

Thanks Stayce for having me, I really had fun working (playing) with your beautiful product! They will stay in my stash and I am sure I will USE them!

This time I chose to alter a book into a bookbox. It was a looooooot of work!

I gave myself some homework: and I must say: mission accomplished…

I wanted to know whether I like to work on a white or black surface better?! I still don’t know the answer.. I like them both.

 

 I chose to use the colors from the current moodboard:

September MoodBoard Challenge W/ Brandy

Hello Fans!  Brandy here again to share my Art Anthology Mood Board Challenge project!! Look at the Art Anthology Adventures page on Facebook for all the gorgeous colors and inspiring images each month brings!

I choose to use Lagoon Velvet, Mardi Gras Velvet, and Amber Gemstone Mediums! Boy, they are beautiful together!

One of the things I love most about AA paints is their thick, luscious consistancy! You can add a little water and they take on a whole new effect! Even then, you can still add this mix in layers to get the exact color and dimension.

Mermaid art journal with Art Anthology

Mermaid art journal with Josefine

Hi, Josefine is back with a new art journal page. This time I wanted to test how the Velvet paints react on a black surface. As you might know the Velvet paints are translucent so I was hoping for a fun effect and I was not disappointed.

Mermaid art journal with Art Anthology

My tutorial video shows exactly how I added the colors to the black background and what I did to create the ocean scene for the little mermaid.

I hope you enjoyed my art journal page and feel inspired to get your own paints out 🙂

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:
Check out How to Make a Set of Industrial ATC by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Here is a full list of products used to make this project:

 Industrial stencil 6*9”

Dazzle Sorbet

Reef Velvet

Concrete Stone Effects

Brick Stone Effects

Plush Colorations spray

Siesta Key Colorations spray

Gold Dust Minx
