Mini Mixed Media Tag Album with Brandy

Hello Art Anthology fans! I’m here to share a very fun project! Yes, it’s a mini album, but it also folds out to be a pretty decoration you can add a few pictures to.

I used a few AA stencils and a couple AA paints to create the one of a kind background for each tag page. A couple of pieces of chipboard and some ribbon later, and you have yourself a pretty little mini album. 🙂

As usual, I’ve made a Snapguide Tutorial for this project! Come give it a try!

Create A Travel Size Art Kit with Toni

Hi everyone… Toni here with some creative inspiration. It’s summertime here and everyone is vacationing. Even while we are on the go, sometimes that creative spirit hits us and it’s nice to have something small that you can bust out and get a little messy with. So I am here to show you a easy way to take your canvases with you. DSC08278

Using an Altoid Mint box and creating canvases on a mini accordian album to fit nicely inside, will provide a gateway for your creativity on vacation. Art Anthology’s products add the texture, glimmer and gorgeous colors needed to produce a pretty altered art kit.

Pictured here is the top and bottom of the container which has a top coat of Crackle Varnish added with seed beads to complete it. DSC08278 - Copy

The mini canvases are made in the form of an accordian album.  Each page has been prepped for artistry with either sticky back canvas, black gesso, clear gesso or watercolor paper.. all ready for your paints, inks, pastes  etc. DSC08295As you can see the mini album fits nicely in the can with room for pen nibs and more.  As creatives we seldom throw anything away knowing that it can probably be useful with our art. So be sure to save those mint containers and make yourself an on-the-go artist travel kit.


The Art Anthology products used are listed below as well as a step x step Snapguide tutorial for your viewing… Hope this has provided some inspiration for your next project… and wishing you a beautifully creative day ! xoxo Toni

Hi there ! Roxanne here with another post for you to check out and hopefully find a little inspiration to create yumminess! Our theme today was quotes that give us mental strength. This quote has always stuck with me, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishments.”  Being the Mom to two daughters, I always want them to Be You. I decided to make them a little mini wood book with a few uplifting quotes that they can read often.

IMG_0785I used only gel mediums for this project, like Velvets in Truffle, Terracotta, and Mayan Gold, Sorbet in Trolley Grey, and Dimensional Gems in Amber.

Check out my Snapguide for a step to step of how to make this mini:Check out How to Create This Mini Book by Roxanne Dondanville by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Here is a page by page look at the completed Mini.

The Cutest All-Star Around!

Hi there, Roxanne here with my latest post for Art Anthology. As we are getting ready for Summer and Spring Ball is almost over, I ran across some pictures form a couple of years ago. We couldn’t get over how small our little guy looked!

So I decided to go ahead and create a mini book to document Spring ball 2013!

Here are the colors I used on the mini book.


When you look at the Snapguide you will find a more detailed list of all supplies and step by step instructions on how create this mini book all by yourself!Check out How to Create a Mini-Book by Roxanne Dondanville by Art Anthology on Snapguide.


Did you see in the Snapguide how I tried to use a different technique in each page? Using Art Anthology products helps you in creating one of a kind backgrounds.

Here are some shots of some of the pages…IMG_0562IMG_0564
