Below are some close ups of my work:

Land Of The Free Journal Page by Toni

Hi everyone, it’s a new month and a new mood board here at Art Anthology and my design team inspiration was from the beautiful blues, reds and grays.

I created a two page journal layout. Sit back as I walk you through this fun process. Using painters tape, create strips across your pages. Using the Twilight stencil and Mud paste I added my stars to the corner of my journal page. Take your spatula and in waves add your texture paste to the uncovered portion of the strips. This will give the appearance of movement in your flag.  Allow your paste to dry completely.  I knew sprayng my strips would be easier but I didn’t have a vivid red so I took the Shine in Ruby and added it to a spray bottle with a little water and shook real good and sprayed away. Gorgeous color and coverage. Now I sprayed my stars with Indigo Colorations Spray.  Heat set all your sprays. Remove your painters tape and reveal your white strips. Taking a fine point Sharpie I wrote the lyrics to Oh Beautiful. Last but not least I used the Metal Effects in Silver with my finger and ran it over all the high parts of the Mud paste on the stars and strips. Then added my title “Land Of the Free Home of the Brave” . Hoping you are inspired by my pages and don’t forget to play along with us and create using our mood board and post it to our Facebook HERE. 

Here is a list of the products used for my journal pages.

Stencils- Twilight 

Shine- Ruby 

Colorations- Indigo 

Metal Effects – Silver 

Mud Texture Paste

Colorful art journal page with Daniëlle

Hi Art Anthology fans!

Danielle here with an art journal page I created in my large journal.

If you want to create one yourself you can follow these steps:

  1. Add some color, using colorations sprays. Don’t cover the entire page.

2. Using limeaid velvet and the lattice stencil, add some texture.

3. Stamp some images on your page, just to make your background more interesting.

4. Using Fiesta velvet and the lotus stencil, add another layer of texture, this time in a different color.

5. While the page is drying, stamp and cut out a larger stamp on a different piece of paper. I used minx inks, mayan gold velvet and the pebbles velvet to color mine.

To finish my page I glued down the colored flower, drew a stem with leaves and stamped a text on a tag which I glued to my page as well. This is what the finished page looks like:

List of products I used:

Colorations spray: Avocado, Clover

Stencils: Lotus, Lattice, Pebbles

Velvet: LimeaidFiesta, Mayan Gold

Minx: Enchanting, Radiance

I look forward to see what you create!

Folk style Art Journal pages

Hello !

Valerie here with an another colorful art journal spread filled with Art Anthology mediums !

I started with a light background of Avocado Colorations spray, followed by stamp and Clover Colrations spray

This folk beauty is stamped on tissue paper and colored with markers, as well as the flowers on this journal ! I used the Glass Sorbet to adhere and protect it from smearing.

Before adhering the tissue paper, I used the Scales stencils in size 8×12 and 6×9 with Limeaid Velvet medium. I outlined the designs with a black pen to make it pop…

I f you would like to know more about my creative process, just watch the video tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today and see you soon for another project !
