Industrial butterfly canvas by Marleen.

Hi Peeps, Marleen here with an industrial project. The Industrial stencil inspired me to the max! I love it but didn’t use it yet.

So I did some searching in my stock of old mechanical parts and found something nice.

Wood Canvas with 3D Bird Nest

Hi everyone 🙂

today I’m sharing a 3D canvas with you. I found this bird in the home decor section and just had to pair it with Art Anthology paints, sprays and inks. It is incredible that you can use the same paint as the base, for dimension and as finishing touches. It always surprises me how they turn out and that it just works.

For this canvas I decided to pick a green color base. This way the wood canvas is the tree and the green color is representing the leaves (or similar :P).

So I started with prepping the surface with different shades of green. Then I adhered the nest and added several gold shimmer effects. But see for yourself:

What do you think? Did the bird get a nice and shiny home or should she move? 😉

For this project I used:

Altered mini book cover

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Art Anthology new post.
Today I am going to share  my new chipboard mini book cover made with bare chipboards and gorgeous Art Anthology products.
 

Here are some close- ups to the painted , stencilled and misted cover.

 

 

 

I decided to stay in grey- blue and purples and to make it vintage dark in just three colors.

Metal pieces, small chipboard plate, fabric and paper flowers were also painted and misted into the matching colors.

And as always I made a full step by step Snapguide tutorial for you that you can see HERE:

Find your Star Clear acrylic deco

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second January tutorial made for Art Anthology.

Irit is here with my new artistic inspiration made  for you.

irit_sig

This time I made a clear acrylic wall deco project using the old and forgotten acrylic page from the 7 years non used album.

I call it a kind of recycling as I never made the clear album, but I use those pages for other altered projects and I really like the use of my old stash.

And just to add to this ” use your stash” thing I used the very old decoupage paper on the back of this project, the very old chipboard star and even older metal letters.

This is a kind of a low cost project and it’s like ” make the background, add some themed pieces and make the statement” project.

I really hope that you got some inspiration from this project and you now understand that making art doesn’t mean that you need the buy the latest and greatest products.

All you need are great Art Anthology products and a lot of your imagination.

Here are some close- ups to this finished project:

And as always there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial I made for you HERE:

See you again next month and enjoy your crafting during those cold Winter days!
