Adventure awaits you, be fearless!

Hi Art Anthology fans!

Daniëlle here with a project for you. I created 2 tags this time:

Here’s how I created them:

First I sprayed with my colorations sprays. I used Siesta key, timeless and plush.

Next I used Mardi gras velvet and the ringlets stencil to create texture:

After this I used raider colorations spray and plush colorations spray with some background stamps to add more dimension to my tags:

To finish my background I also used the cracked stencil and clear coat linen. This creates a shiny, glittery extra texture:

Now, while my tags are drying, I stamp some images I like and colored them using Black leather jacket, Cayman, Mi Bella and wisteria sorbet:

I finish my project by cutting out the colored images and pasting them to my tags. I also added text stickers and ofcourse some nice ribbons.

Some close ups so you can see the colors and texture better:

I hope you enjoyed my project, see you next time!

List of products I used:

Colorations: Timeless, Plush, Siesta Key

Velvet: Mardi gras

Stencils: Ringlets, Cracked

Clear coat: Linen

Sorbet: Black leather jacket, Cayman, Mi Bella, Wisteria

From Recycling Bin to Art!

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Today I am sharing this fun repurposed bottle project using  some amazing Art Anthology products! Products Used available by clicking the links below.
Colorations Plush
Colorations Wild Orchid
Fairy Dust Ice
Minx Gold Dust
Pebbles Stencil

Start with a clean glass bottle. Coat with two or three coats of white gesso allowing each coat to dry.

Add molded focal such as the cherub head and wings used here. Also add flowers and metal embellishments. Use a strong adhesive that can stand wet media. Once all are glued down coat them all in heavy white gesso. I also added some white crackle paste through the Pebbles stencil on the neck and allowed it to dry and crackle. This added a bit more texture.


Next add the Colorations Sprays and Fairy Dust Spray Ice. Alternate between them and dry each as they are added. Once the color was dry I re-coated the face in white gesso so it stood out.

I added a script stamp in black all over the open areas. Drips of Gold Dust Minx were used to accent areas and also the hair. Gel medium was dabbed in areas around the embellishments and then sprinkled with a mixture of gold micro beads and gold glass glitters. Once all was dry I brushed a pearlizing medium over the bottle and focal as well as some of the flowers.

A large rose painted with Art anthology colorations in the same colors was added along with a metal butterfly embellishment.
Lastly I added some chain with a pearl charm to the top as an accent.

Some other views….


Thanks so much for visiting the blog and viewing my post today! This was a very fun redo! I love to recycle junk into Art!
I hope that you will share your creations with us on Facebook HERE.

Art Anthology Products are conveniently available online HERE.

As always Stay Creative!!

Mixed Media Card Set by Toni

Hi everyone… Toni here today with a fun project. I love making ATC’s and they are the perfect little pieces of art to place on the front of a card. I decided I wanted to make a set of “All Occasion” cards for a friend of mine so here we go. I created my ATC’s with chipboard and started by adding tissue tape, stamped old book pages and used a pretty stencils from Art Anthology with Sorbet Glass. Then started applying my pretty Colorations in Wild Orchid, Plush, Timeless and Glorious…. gorgeous color combo. Added some more texture using another AA stencil and running black modeling paste through it. 

Stamped and cut out the butterflies and using the Colorations I applied them with a water brush to give a watercolor effect. Added some dew drops and upholstery thread for interesting  texture.To bring out the colors in the shadows of the butterflies I then added Sorbets in Vegas Gold, Sunshine and Purple Rain. Then cut a mat for each ATC and adhered to the white card stock. Stamped different sentiments on each card and now we have a pretty gift card set to give. The seam binding was sprayed also with Plush and Wild Orchid. For your enjoyment I have provided a Snapguide tutorial of my process. Be sure to follow us on Facebook HERE and download your beautiful projects for all of us to be inspired by as well.  Also stop by and subscribe to our YOUTUBE channel for process videos from the designers. Wishing you a wonderful day ! xoxo Toni
