Mixed media canvas about Maths…

Happy New Year from Valerie !

There is no reason to create less than in 2017, right ? I hope you start this new year with alot of projects in mind, and I hope I will help you in your creativity with my new project inspired by the January moodboard…

That was a lot of work but I am so pleased with the result ! I wanted to create a canvas to celebrate Maths and found a quote from Albert Einstein : “Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” I had my title !

I used three different stencils, two from the Off the Grid stack, and the Blocked stencil. You will also find some Mud texture paste and Plush Colorations spray.

And I did play with Velvet and Sorbet mediums : Orchid, Mayan gold, Purple Rain, Mardi Gras and Dragon Fruit.

Maths are so important in the progress of the human kind… In fact, they are present everywhere, especially in art ! I think this piece could be a perfect gift for a Maths teatcher… Never too early to think about end-of-the-school-year gift or even a dad’s day gift ?

You can watch my video tutorial to see my creative process right here :

And if you need another push to creativity, here is the moodboard to help you start with colors…

Once again happy new year, and see you soon for another mixed media project…

Holiday Mixed Media Canvas with Brandy

Hi fans! Brandy here to share a canvas I created using our beautiful Color Challenge Board!
I hope you decide to play along with us! AND if you do, stop by our Facebook group page Art Anthology Adventures in Art and share it with us! 🙂

For awesome texture, this time I used the Fragments and Lotus Stencils and my Art Anthology Mud.
I chose the always gorgeous Sky Colorations spray to start the color for my canvas. I love how this spray gets a little darker with each layer you add…giving you the perfect opportunity to get just what shade you want!

My Desire Velvet Medium added just the right amount of festive color.  To make it all shine, I added a coat of Splashed Clear Coat for some pretty sparkle.

Here’s a video tutorial so you can see how to make your own!

Altered wooden deer head

Hello everyone!

I swear I was gonna use the beautiful AA moodboard in my project ! But I don’t know what happened, the red turn into a more pinkish color and the turquoise transformed itself into mint! So instead of creating a more Christmas like project, I ended up with a Spring project. Am I early or what ? Anyway here is my mixed media project :

The base is a wooden deer head, decorated with air dry clay embellishments and flowers, then covered with gesso. Once dry I used some Art Anthology magic to make it more vivid…

We have two colors here, for two kinds of products. First the pink: it’s the Valentine Colorations spray. You can switch to Barbie Colorations as it’s not in the store anymore.

The green is another AA products, a Minx – Shimmering ink in Bankroll. Both are working very well together !

So OK it’s not a Christmas vibe, but I do love the result!

If you want to know more about the process of this project, you can watch the video tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today. I wish you a fantastic Holidays season and a great end of the year. We will see each other in 2018!! But you will find projects from the DT on this blog before I return so come back soon !

Beautiful Art Canvas w/ Brandy

Hi, Fans!! Brandy here with a quick share of a project!

After being inspired by a friend, I thought I’d try using an old paintbrush as the focal point of an art canvas! I kinda love how this brush was used a time or two by myself, then returned to a beautiful piece of art afterward! Just some twine, a coat of gesso, some crackle paste and some of my SKY Colorations spray. 🙂

Of course, the paintbrush wouldn’t look as good as it does without a gorgeous background made up of a few more Art Anthology goodness! I started by adding texture with some Mud and my Lotus and Blocked stencils. Next, I adorned them with Colorations Sprays in Sky, Warm, and Steel.

The metal butterfly helped me choose a few rust colored accents for adorning.

In, the end I found a spectacular title sticker that suited this old brush perfectly.
“She was herself again”.

Winter Home Decor Project W/ Brandy

Happy December Art Anthology Fans!!

Brandy here to share an adorable piece, perfect for the coming winter.
I had an old metal embroidery hoop in my stash and have been dying to use this image of the a little winter fairy guy…this is what I came up with!

I gave the background paper more interest by adding some Seafoam Velvet Medium and Sandstone Stone effects with my Lotus and Dot Matrix stencils!

Those yummy aged looking clumps around the edge of the hoop are from alternating Seafoam Velvet Medium and a rust colored embossing powder. Worked perfect! 🙂

I love how the piece turned out. I also love how just adding a few Art Anthology products to your project can make it phenomenal!

Here’s a tutorial on how it came together 🙂
