Using Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology to create a camo canvas with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I want to share a new canvas with you. I used the Colorations Sprays to create a camo looking background and I love it 🙂

I used parts of the Lotus Stencil for the focal point in the background and to add some extra texture. By using the Minx inks to outline the Lotus flower it now looks like its shining even brighter.

I always like to add hidden interest to a project. The Dazzle paint is perfect for that as it dries clear and just leaves this amazing sparkle.

But now to the process. Here is my video that is showing how I put everything together. Enjoy 🙂

These are the supplies I used:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little canvas 🙂

How did I create this? Read on for more……….

In addition to the amazing Art Anthology colors featured on the mood board, Limeaid Velvet, Bronze Metal EffectsDecadent Minx, Gold Dust Minx, and Radiance Minx, I also added some Red Velvet Sorbet and Bankroll Minx. As you can see all of these colors work very well together to create a great Fall palette!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month W/ Brandy

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I’d stop by and share a little PINK project I made.

I started with a small wooden banner piece from my stash and gave it a coat of gesso. Next, I used some texture paste and my Diamond Grunge Stencil to add texture.
Alternating Sprays of Barbie Colorations spray and water, I got the soft pink color. I chose a few spots to add some of my Warm Colorations Spray to give it that “been around for a while” look. I also used my finger to brush on a little color to the white gesso painted hanger and sayings.
Finally, I added a couple little drips of my Indulgence Shimmering Minx Ink. It adds just the perfect touch of sparkle. 🙂
Pile on some coordinating flowers and embellishments, if your like me, and it’s complete!

Some of best help with this cancer fight is breast health knowledge! Assessing your personal risk and knowing what the signs and symptoms are can help tremendously in early detection.

Talk to your doctor and keep up with your self checks!

Thanks for stopping by today! Head over to our Facebook Group Adventures in Art, to see more, ask questions or share your own Art Anthology projects!

Halloween Canvas

Ooozing eyeballs Halloween canvas with Josefine

How about a mixed media Halloween canvas with oozing eyeballs and poison paste? Art Anthology products are perfect for drippy backgrounds and thick texture alike. And it’s still enough time to create some more spooky things – despite all the Christmas decoration that is already up in my grocery store.

I’m a fan of these smaller, card sized projects and love to decorate a canvas like that. The smaller area makes it easier to get started, but also challenges you to “organize” your space better. So let me show you what I did with this little canvas.

And? Oozing enough? 😛
I’m impressed with the stone effect paste. Even though I mixed with one of the Sorbet’s it dried in a neat texture.

Thanks for stopping by!
