You will need four 4’x6′ white cards and four 3′ 6/8” x 5′ 6/8” white cardstock panels the Twilight stencil with gel medium, some Minx and the Mayan Gold Velvet dimensional medium

The pink is made with Enchanting Minx, the blue with Panache Minx

This gorgeous purple was create with Majestic Minx and water. The sentiment (white cardstock die) is painted with Mayan Gold Velvet Dimensional Medium.

This luxious green came from the Bankroll Minx. The stars have been outlined with a gold gel pen and the edges of the card painted with the Mayan Gold medium.

Wooden wall hanger

Wooden wall hanger with Josefine

Hi and welcome back!

Today I’m sharing a small project with you using a piece of birch wood and Art Anthology paints to create a wall hanger. Even though it’s a small piece of art, I had a lot of fun creating it!

I prepared a video tutorial for you, showing you how I created the image on the birch wood:

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial ūüôā

Do you ever paint on wood? I love how the Art Anthology paints turn out! They have a very distinct sheen to them. It’s hard to explain, but I encourage you to give it a try and see for yourself ūüôā

Here are the supplies I used:

A Twist On Canvas Art With Brandy


Hello Art Anthology fans! Brandy here to share a super cute project with you!
Inspired by two adorable little flower fairies, I set off on a journey into a color combo I haven’t used very much in the past. I love how it turned out though!
Just a couple 6×6 canvases hooked together with two small hinges, and I was off!

For that fabulous texture, I used both my Twilight and Diamond Grunge stencils.

Wanting to keep things dainty, I chose some tiny white diecuts as accents to fill in the inside of the canvas.

Check out How to Create a Double Art Canvas Decoration by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Here’s list of the Art Anthology products used today!

Diamond Grunge Stencil
Twilight Stencil
Sunshine Sorbet Paint
Shamrock Velvet Paint
Timeless Colorations Spray
Clover Colorations Spray

By The Sea – Lighthouse Frame

Hello creative friends,¬†glad to be sharing¬†another DT post. For today’s project¬†I made a mixed media, somewhat¬†altered lighthouse frame. I decided not to add a photo yet (needing one that’s just right), instead I removed the glass piece¬†and replaced it with pattern paper and a¬†wooden sentiment, I saved the glass piece¬†for when I¬†add¬†the¬†photo later.

I love¬†playing with¬†lots of texture, color and embellishments.¬† I used a combination of Art Anthology Colorations color sprays –¬†Sandcastle, Warm, Waimea Bay and Peacock Feathers, Velvet Mediums –¬†Kona, Fiji and¬†Limeaid, Sorbet medium –¬†Kenyan Copper,¬†Gemstone medium –¬†Amber and Stone Effects –¬†Bone. Everything came together so nicely, it’s a great way to relax and have some¬†fun.

Hope you feel inspired to create your own… you will find a step by step tutorial with a complete list of supplies posted below.

Enjoy…

Smile : Mixed Media canvas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first July tutorial made with Art Anthology products.
 Irit is here again and this time I made a small, card sized, altered Mixed Media canvas in a dark , but yet shabby style.
The background was made with Art Anthology stencils and dimensional paints and also it was made over black gesso you can see the shiny purple paint seen over the canvas.

The flowers cluster was misted with black Colorations spray and then painted with a few other AA paints.
The die cut cardstock pieces were also painted to fit the colors of the project.
Two other pieces added here are the clay mold fairy and a chipboard title ; both were painted to get the colors desired for the finished project.

As always you can see the full Snapguide  step by step tutorial HERE:

Art journal with face stencil

Hello crafters !

Did you see the moodboard this month ? It’s full of interesting textures and colors !

The creamy gold and copper, the splash of blue and waves inspired me to create an art journal spread with a face stencil. It has a mermaid vibe, with a background looking like rusty metal decorations under the sea and mermaid eye deep as the sea.

I use several stencil by Art Anthology in these pages : Let’s face it for the girl, Dot matrix, Lotus and Inspired grunge for the background, plus Expressions stencil for the journaling.

Lot of mediums and inks here ! Sandcastle Colorations spray for the base, then Peacock Feathers and Siesta Key before playing with the stencils and the mediums in Amber, Mayan gold, Lagoon and Kenyan copper.

I also add somme drop of Radiance Minx and Gold Dust Minx for the rusty look.

Want to learn more about how I created these art journal pages ? Watch my complete video tutorial on AA YouTube channel :

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope the moodbard and the DT projects will help you create something ! If you are looking for more inspiration, try the AA Instagram account or AA Pinterest boards

See you soon for another project !
