The Long Lost Treasure Chest w/ Brandy

Or is it???
Hello there ART Anthology fans!! Brandy here today to share a totally cool old recipe box I altered with the Art Anthology’s Patina Texture Set!

I used my Lattice Stencil and Mud to create a base texture. The rest is pure Art Anthology stone texture! I love how it turned out…looking like a lost chest from the deep. This three step collection truly makes it easy to create your own aged look.

Industrial cards with the Oxidized Silver Texture set

Hello there !

Valerie today, with a project a little bit different than the ones I’m use to… But you need to get out of your comfort zone something, right… So here I am, with a project with no bright color !

What I used for these two cards were the Oxidized silver Texture set , the Ringlets stencil, Mud texture paste and few drops of Sterling Fairy Dust (ok, white paper too).

So I started by applying Mud paste over the stencil. Once dried, I applied the ash stone texture all over it.

Then Grey matte finish and Silver Metallic on the stencil pattern. See how it looks like aged silver ?

The quote were stamped on white circle covered with the Silver Metallic medium. Used alone, it has a beautiful shiny metal finish.

Few drops of Sterling Fairy dust to complete the oxide look and I was done for my background.

If you want to know more about the process of these cards, a complete video tutorial is available for you to watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by the blog today, I hope to see you soon for another project (probably with more colors this time !).


Hello! canvas created by Daniëlle


Daniëlle here to show you a canvas I created with my art anthology products!

I started with lots of texture by using stencils and modeling paste (for example Art Anthology mud) which I then sprayed with my colorations sprays.\

I looked for some chipboard pieces and colored them with the same sprays and my metal effects, sorbet and velvet mediums.

Take a photograph, add all the pieces to your canvas, add some pretty embellishments and you’re all ready to go!

List of products I used:

Stencils: Scales, Fragments, Keyhole, Lotus. 

Colorations: Clover, Timeless, Sedona, Raider.

Velvet: Lagoon

Sorbet: Vegas Gold

Metal effects: Bronze

Rusty leaves layout by Valerie

Hello there !

I have a Fall layout to show you today. I know, we are in February, but between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and soon to be Valentine’s day, I didn’t have the chance to scrap this Fall picture I like. So here it is, and thanks to that, I did use my rust texture set !

Beside the rust set, I also use the Diamond Grunge stencil with Leaf Sorbet on both sides of the paper. Bonus : the pattern matches the leaves !

To create this rusty effect, you will apply first the rust truffle, then touches of Terracotta, and a hint of Rust Amber for the finish.

On these two pictures, one leaf is painted, the other is a altered metal leaf…

Look how the Leaf Sorbet really pop and shine on this layout !

If you want to see how I make the leaves, you can watch the complete tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Stay tune for more projects from the DT, and see you soon…


Art Journal Page w/ Brandy

Happy Ferbruary Art Anthology fans!
Brandy here to share an art journal page I created. I been trying to do more “practicing” in my journal! It’s the perfect way to try out a new color, work on new technique, create with limited time, or maybe even just artfully document that moments mood! 🙂

I’m a fan of browns, so my Warm and Sedona Colorations Sprays were the perfect choice. Accents with Copper Metals Effects Medium brought it all together!

Background textures were made using the Blocked and Coffee Stain Stencils. I really like how it turned out!

Check out the process video below…I hope it inspires you to get your journal out!! 🙂

Mardi Gras mask by Valerie

Hello !

Valerie here today to show you a project for an Holiday you maybe are not familiar with, Mardi Gras ! Fat Tuesday is an old Middle Age tradition where peasants disguised themselves, feasted and burned a effigy of the king. It was something tolerate by the church to replace the older pagan custom for Spring. So, I will just stay with the disguise today with an altered mask !

Not far from where I live is the beautiful town of New Orleans, where Mardi Gras is a real deal Holiday ! The official colors for this are green and purple, so I choose the Mardi Gras Velvet and Emerald Dimensional Gemstones mediums for my project.

Between black gesso and those mediums, I  applied Dazzle Clear Coat to add some sparkle. Then I use Emerald Dimensional Gemstones medium and Mardi Gras Velvet medium.

And don’t forget a touch of gold with the Gold Metal Effect medium !

Can you see the little flakes of gold from the Dazzle ? And the Gold Metal Effect looks like gold powder !

I did a video tutorial for you to see the whole process. You can watch it here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thanks you for stopping by today ! I hope you enjoy seeing this project as much as I enjoyed create it ! See you soon for another project…

Never change art journal page with Josefine

Hi Art Anthology fans 🙂

I was in a play mood and wanted to try what happens when you mix crackle paint with Colorations Sprays. I had a blast mixing colors and watching them disapear in the cracks and creating fun patterns.

I thought that it ended up looking like dragon scales, so I grabbed one of my dragon stamps and designed the layout for the page. You can watch the entire process here:

These are the Colorations sprays and Velvet and Sorbet paints I’ve used:

Unfortunately, that was my last post for the Art Anthology design team. Feel free to follow me on my blog, if you want to see more of my creations 🙂

Thanks so much to all of you for watching my videos and reading my posts. I had a blast with this team and will definitely continue drooling over all their amazing projects
