Cute little canvas with Daniëlle

Hi everyone!

Daniëlle here with a cute little canvas for you!

I used:

Colorations spray: Plush, Siesta key

Fairy Dust: Ice

Velvet: Tuxedo

Stencil: small lotus stencil

Sorbet: Cayman, Bella boo (purple color)

Clear coat: Linen

Here’s a little step by step tutorial, so you can create one yourself:

  1. My base consists of collage with a layer of clear gesso.

2. Next, add color with Colorations sprays and sparkle with Fairy Dust.

3. Add a little texture by applying some velvet through a stencil.

4. For the wings I used a little different technique. I applied Cayman Sorbet, let it dry for a bit and then wiped of the excess sorbet with a baby wipe to create a dreamy look. I applied clear coat linen on the whole wing for extra sparkle.

5. The final step is to put it all together, find an image and text you like. I decided my canvas needed extra sparkle so I added some sorbet to my canvas.

I hope you liked my little tutorial, see you next time!

Spooky Shadow Box by Farrel Tailor

Hi there everyone, Farrel here today to share with you all my first Halloween Project.

  1. I painted all my chipboard pieces and shadowbox with black gesso. I then applied Sandstone Stone Effects using a palette knife to the box and Gargoyles.

2.  I then used Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint to add highlights to the chipboard pieces.

3. Next I dry brushed onto the shadowbox using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint.

4.  I painted my potion bottles using Sorbet Dimensional Paint in Black Leather Jacket…. I LOVE this colour.

5. The bottles needed some more texture as they got lost in the box so I added some Sandstone Stone Effects but I made sure I didn’t cover the pieces.

6. Next I painted some of the bottles with Kenyan Copper Sorbet Dimensional Paint

7. Finally before adhering everything together, I used Peacock Feathers Colorations Spray to colour the other potion bottles and used the left over spray on my desk to dry brush on the shadow box.

Scrappy Art Journal Page

Hey everyone!  Suzanne here today to share with you a scrappy art journal page featuring loads of Art Anthology yummies!  I had so much fun getting my hands dirty while creating this page.  I will show you how I achieved the background using an array of AA paints and mists!


I began the journal page by priming it with gesso.  Once dried, I randomly applied paints in teals, blue, and green; I did this very loosely-not really taking care of where I applied which color.  Once those colors dried, with a palette knife, I applied a layer of molding paste over the top-varying thickness which lends texture and still allows the colors to come through.

I continue the process of applying color and paste until i’m happy with the results; Minx Inks and several Colorations were thrown into the mix and worked beautifully for adding color depth.

While the paste was still wet, I painted a piece of regular graphing paper with the beautiful paint Velvet-Beyond the Reef.  I ripped the painted paper into strips and scrunched it into the paste creating a tiered layer effect.

I continued the process of bringing varying colors of the teals and blues back to the front and reapplying molding paste in different areas.  I added stamping as well!  I’m impatient, so I helped the drying process with a heat gun.

Once the page was assembled, I added some extra shimmer to the entire page by applying a coat of Splashed.  It added the perfect amount of bling to the finished page!  Here are some closeups!


Art Anthology Supplies: 
Sorbet- “Cayman, Splashed”
Shine- “Teal, Kelly”
Velvet-“Beyond the Reef, Figi” 
Minx Ink-“Panache, Stargazer”
Colorations-“Sky, Waimea Bay, Siesta Key”

Other Supplies: 
wire, masking tape
mica flakes
graphing paper, sticker embellishments, stamps

Today/ Mixed Media Layout

Good morning! Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using a variety of mixed media mediums. For this layout, I used Velvet Dimensional Paint (Fiji, Tuxedo). I also used Sorbet in Vegas Gold…PRETTY!!! And I used Salmon and Waimea Bay Colorations Sprays. Love how vibrant these sprays are. GORGEOUS.

To begin, I sprayed the Colorations sprays onto white cardstock. Then, I used the Pebbles stencil and the Vegas Gold Velvet Paint to create a fun patterned at the bottom of the layout.

I dry brushed the Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint all over the top half of the layout. I had a general idea as to what I wanted this layout to look like and it turned out perfectly.

Once the paint was dry, I sprayed the Waimea Bay Colorations Spray all across the top of the layout and let it drip down. I did this two times. Then I used a heat gun to dry the ink.

I used the Take Flight stencil and the Tuxedo Velvet to paint the birds. Love these little guys!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today. It means so much to me!

When you have time, take a look at my video to see how this beauty came together! If you need more inspiration check out Art Anthology on Pinterest and YouTube.

Mixed Media Beach Board by Toni

Hi everyone… hope you are all having a nice month of August. Today I have for you a clip board I purchased from the dollar store and I transformed it into a beachy layout, featuring my daughter and my niece about 25 years ago… Hope you enjoy. I started by adding some wood grain paper and then priming the surface for my sprays and paints. Using some drift wood from the beach, twigs from my yard, fishnet, and paper clay elements provided lots of yummy texture. Applying my Colorations Sprays and Minx Shimmering Inks really brought this to life. All of the supplies used will be listed below. Take the unexpected and turn it into a keepsake to hold your memories. I hope you will give this a try. I also have a process video below for your viewing. Wishing you a day filled with peace & love…. hugs

Supplies used:
