Hi crafty peeps, it’s Toni here with a lamp I altered for my craftroom. I purchased this simple lamp at a decor store for $25.00.
I really liked the bones of it but I knew it needed to be spruced up. I also got these water goggles at the Dollar store and knew they would were intended for this project.
I had a difficult time getting good photos of this project so I hope you bear with me.
I applied all my old metal pieces that I have collected over the years from garage sales and junk stores, as well as some chipboard pieces, chain, buttons, and plumbers pipes from the hardware store. The goggles were altered with hot glue, Art Anthology’s paint as well as alcohol inks. Art Anthology’s Texture Paste Set in Rust along with Mud Texture Paste helped me accomplish this rusty piece and provided some wonderful textures. Here is a photo out in the light, hopefully you can get a different look at this piece.
And now I have a new lamp for my craftroom. I hope you have been inspired and you have enjoyed my new project. For your pleasure below is a Snapguide tutorial. xoxo Toni
Create your own Galaxy project using amazing products from Art Anthology!
This galaxy technique is everywhere these days! It is very cool and can be achieved in so many ways. Today I will show you how I did mine using products from Art Anthology! I have included a Snapguide tutorial below the photos!
Art Anthology products used to create this:
Minx Shimmering Inks in Stargazer, Immaculate, and Majestic
Gemstones Fluorite and Blue Topaz
Sorbet baby Blue Eyes
Chrome from the Silver Oxide Set
Colorations spray in Plush
Small ring-bound sketch pad with black covers

Metal embellishments, key, wings etc. from junk stash
Gritty texture paste (I mixed mini art stones into Art Anthology Mud)
Strong translucent-drying adhesive or medium
My latest project features the yummy texture and colors from Art Anthology Rust Collection Set.
Though I’m not sure if the Rusty gears part really goes with an embroidery hoop, it sure fits my style!
It’s a super easy project with a striking finished product!
Toni here today to share with you an altered project I created to hold my essential oils I use to diffuse at home.Started with this paper mache box I purchased awhile back at Michaels. Starting off with AA’s Mud Paste run through a couple of a gorgeous stencils (listed below) for texture to the box. Then the addition of a few metal pieces. Then I took some white mulberry flowers and painted them in the colors above and dipped them in melted UTEE to give them a porcelain effect. Before adhering to the box I spritzed Colorations Sedona & Granny Smith on the top for shadows and a pretty shimmer.
Pictured above the pretty texture provided by the stencils. Florals were added to the top and my title to the front of the box and now my essential oils have a new home. Hope this has provided some inspiration to decorate your containers for your home. Put that special “YOU” touch on your items.
Below is a list of AA products used and also a Snapguide tutorial for your pleasure….. Peace
