Make your own rust effects with Art Anthology!

Hello Art Anthology Fans!! Dream Team member Brandy here today to share my project inspired by our moodboard over on the Facebook group page, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!
This month’s board features some awesome rusty objects! If you haven’t played along yet, what are you waiting for!? 🙂

I’ve heard of other companies having mediums that look like rust, so naturally I had to see if we could make our own with Art Anthology products! Turns out, I only had to add one ingredient to some paint……and it was sand!

With a combination of “sandy” Kenyan Copper Sorbet and Radiance Minx Shimmering Ink I was able to come up with something that looks pretty darn close! 🙂

I made a Snapguide tutorial for this project!

Spring mixed media egg panel

Hello crafters !

If you haven’t decorate your house for Spring or Easter, I have an idea of project for you… an egg panel, filled with flowers, mixed media techniques and Art Anthology products of course ! It even matches our AA moodboard !

Take a look at the finished project :

The background of this egg panel was built with the Retro stencil and Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Sandcastle. The border was painted with Bronze Metal Effect dimensional paint, and the chipboards with Aloha Velvet paint.

Another close-up to see the beautiful effect created with the stencil :

You find will the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today !

I hope I gave you some inspiration to create something of your own. See you soon for another project…
