Adorable altered canvas with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here today and  I welcome to my second September Art Anthology Inspiration.

After doing a lot of pretty dark art work I decided to try the bright one and I made this adorable canvas using my dear lovely granddaughter photos.

 I left it in a pretty minimalistic style as I wanted the photos to shine and the  Art Anthology background to be seen and not covered with tons of embellishments. So I just used the Dusty Attic chipboards to connect all canvas pieces and added some flowers for this girly canvas.

All flowers were originally white and I made them colorful with a mix of Art Anthology Colorations only and a bit of white gesso at the end.

All paint splashes were made with a dry paint brush and  a bit of Art Anthology paints on it.

As you can see I added some micro beads and larger seed beads over the canvas for more interest.

And as always- here is my full step by step Snapguide tutorial:

Tink Sorbet

 Sunshine Sorbet

Colorations:

Skull candy by Valerie

Hello there !

I want to give to some ideas for Halloween or Day of the Dead today. Its’ not too early considering you could already find Christmas decorations in stores…

I saw this plaster skull few weeks ago and knew I had to paint it with AA mediums ! Skull candy are usually more colorful, but black and gold were a perfect fit for a classy and frightful look… So I started with this :

Black gesso for the base, Dazzle Clear Coat and Gold Metal Effect mediums for the painting part. I added metal beads and charms, few more painting, et voila !

Black gesso gave a matt finish to the skull. So I add the Dazzle for the glossy and sparkly look of this clear coat.

Depending on the thickness of your coat of paint, the Gold Metal Effect will have a solid finish or be just a touch. Here you can see the solid look :

And on the lacy flower is just an highlight in the center :

I made a video tutorial for you, but be indulgent as I am still in a temporary appartment in Houston and had to let my daughter shoot the video in my kitchen with my phone…

Thank you for reading this post, don’t forget to visit our other socials for more inspiration ! And see you soon…

On this wall decoration I made a collage of all possible arts and you can find ballet, music, fine arts, movies and theatre that all together make this imaginative project.

I used canvas as my base and then arranged the collage using chipboards, wooden piece, clay pieces and all together was painted and misted with Art Anthology products.

Garden Tags by Jenn

Garden Tags JDuBell Art Anthology

Hello! Art Anthology Fans and Friends! I am up on the blog today showing you these beautiful Garden Tags using Art Anthology products! The colors are vibrant and easy for anyone to achieve with these products! The best news is that Art Anthology offers an amazing variety of colors for you to choose from!

What you will need for this project:

Art Anthology Colorations Sprays

Art Anthology Minx shimmering Inks

Art Anthology Stencils

Art Anthology Sorbets

All other supplies are listed in Snapguide tutorial on the bottom of this post.

Start this project with a blank chipboard tag. Mine is 7″X3 1/4″.

Add stenciling using crackle paste in white. Make sure to dry completely between stencils. Crackle paste also cracks more when allowed to dry naturally rather than using a heat tool.

For my tags I used the following Art Anthology Products:

Stencils: MVM Diamond Grunge, Bubbles, MVM Lotus

Colorations Sprays: Ink Spot, Peacock Feathers, Sky, Plush

Shimmering Inks: Enchanting, Stargazer

Sorbet: Linen

Once my background looked the way I wanted it to I coated with a clear glue and seal. This seals the inks and makes them pop!

Once everything is dry I assembled it all using flowers that were dyed in same colors to match, TH paper dolls, chipboards, jute string, cheesecloth, pearls, drywall net tape, and sentiments.

Thanks so much for reading my post! I hope you enjoy this project and are inspired to create some for yourself or to give as gifts! For the full tutorial please look at Snapguide below.

Thanks!!

Altered clipboard by Valerie

Hello AA lovers !

The project I have to show you today has something special… First I was supposed to post 3 days ago… But life got in the way and I wasn’t able to have my hand on AA products before two days ago on the AA booth at the CKC event in Houston ! You don’t really think a hurricane can stop me meeting AA people and create something for you, don’t you ?

So while there, I was able to create an altered clipboard (everybody has their kid at school by now, right ?) with what I found there : plenty of AA products, a stamp, a pen and… paper towel !

I worked on a plain clipboard covered with white gesso, building layers with stencils and different mediums. You can spot the Retro stencil as well as the Got Your Number and the Soliloquy stencils.

I used Barbie Colorations spray for the background and Raider Colorations spray for the edges and the splatters.

For the stenciled patterns, I used 50 Shades Grey and Orchid Velvet medium, plus Imperial Sorbet medium.

I did a step-by-step video tutorial for you that you can watch or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today ! I already know what I will create for my next AA post, so see you soon…
