Hi there !

The project I will show you today is a perfect example of what you can do with Art anthology products in a mixed media project… You will see (yes there is a video tutorial) different uses for Sorbet, Velvet, Colorations sprays, Minx, and stencils ! So grab a cup of something and relax, because it’s gonna be a long post…

Let’s first take a look at the complete project :

Some of the inside pages :

I love the peek between pages created by cutting the paper at different sizes…

This is the back cover, with Cotton Velvet, Limeaid Velvet, Imperial Sorbet, Cotton Candy Velvet mediums and Dottie, Inspired Grunge and Expressions stencils :

Here are close-ups of the pages :

Lots of Colorations sprays, stencils and mediums !

Stamps and white gel pen were used to add more dimensions to the pages.

And drops of water created a great look !

So many different textures too !

Fragile!

Hi all Art Anthology fans,
Ellie Knol here today!
… ¬†with a project I’ve started during my vacation… dried stems and flowers to make some home-decor with. They’ve been waiting, together with the gesso-primed MDF in a droplet-like shape.

It took a lot of steps and time to get to the finished project..

.. but I am happy with the end result..

…although looking through the pictures I’ve made, I sometimes thought I had to maybe stop at that step, hehe

But on the other hand.. I’ve learned a lot by just going with the flow and go through trial and error… ¬†(of course there is not really any error in Mixed Media) … adding another layer of color…

.. or white acrylic paint to cover it up, LOL !

****

Coloring the stems and seedheads with Decadent Minx Shimmering inks is just one of the steps in the Snapguide I’ve created for you:

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!!

Moody Blues by Toni

Hi everyone… have you seen our mood board this month ? It’s plump full of inspiration and gorgeous blue tones.¬†

For my inspiration I pulled from the beautiful blues of course, the wood grain on the door, the graytones, the pretty mosaic print and the funny circles. Here is what I came up with.

I had a photo of my daughter in black and white and I reprinted it in an ombre effect with the blues for my focal point. The background first I used our pretty gothic stencil and sponged on some Sorbet-Black Leather Jacket and once dry I ran through Mud Texture Paste through the same stencil.The it was time for some fun with splatters here and there and I also dipped my lids in the paint for some pretty circles. The photo above you can see what a pretty shine the Minx Shimmering Inks provides on your projects. Just dripped this down the sides of my layout.¬†It’s always fun to use unexpected items for your titles, these were little wood pieces that I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hold, using archival black ink I stamped my letters and added the brads.¬†With the addition of some crystal seed beads in my flowers and some sterling glass glitter for added texture.¬†I hope you will join us this month and be inspired by our beautiful mood board, please also post it on our Facebook page HERE so we all can be inspired by your creativity. ¬†Happy creating xoxo Toni

Make a wish art journal page with Art Anthology

Make a wish art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m in an art journal mood at the moment and just had to create a page with some of the Art Anthology Velvet paints. I picked all the yellows, oranges and reds that I had and started painting.
Make a wish art journal page with Art Anthology

I usually don’t worry too much about techniques or guidelines when creating a project. I love “just trying” and then see what works and what not. So when I started with this page I didn’t really know where I wanted to go with it, till I realized that I’m adding quite a few stars.

The rest then just happened and I really enjoy how it turned out ūüôā
