Creating cards with Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology

Using Colorations Spray Differently with Josefine

Hi, Josefine here, with two colorful cards that I created using the Colorations Sprays in a different way. I really enjoy the Art Anthology Colorations Sprays. They are so vibrant and yummy. That’s why I was wondering, if I could use them for more than “just” spraying the ink onto something.

And I love the effect and how the cards turned out!

But back to the beginning and what I actually did. I didn’t want to create a huge mess, so I used some pipettes to get the ink out of the bottles and onto my craft mat. From there it was easy to dab my paper into the ink and create this splattered background. But see for yourself how I did it:

So, what do you think? Worth creating some more cards using this technique?

Here are the supplies I used:

Industrial ATC set with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here and today I am going to share my ATC cards trio made with new Art Anthology stencil and a lot of Art Anthology paints and mists.

 

This project was born as a ” stencil and paint” project. I loved the stencil and the new stone effect paint and just used them over three ATC blanks.

Then when it was dry I thought about the theme and the best one to add to concrete stone effect paint was something urban.

So I used skyline die and made layers of houses and then added stormy sky effects with different paint and mists.

You can take a look at each one of three ATC pieces here:

 

 

And as always I have a Snapguide tutorial for you to see and to use in a future:

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.

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.

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 🙂

Art Inspired Tags

Hello there, here is my next DT project for Art Anthology. I made some colorful purple and yellow tags, using some black for contrast. These are colorful and simple to create using Art Anthology’s Colorations spray, somewhat mixed in with Minx ink. For added texture I used some Stone Effects through the stencil and Sorbet medium on the chipboard. For a tad more texture I also applied some purple and black glass glitter.
Hope you are feeling inspired to create your own…below you will find a step by step tutorial.
Enjoy…

Naked Beauty by Toni

Hi all our artsy followers, today I’m on the blog with a layout I created featuring an “au natural” photo I took at the beach of the gorgeous colors in the sand as well as pretty textures of shells, pods, feathers and drift wood…. all of natures eye candy. I love photographing  mother nature stripped down, in the raw. The textures, the organic feel is truly healthy for my soul. I did add some florals as well as moss, shells and different sizes of art stones to enhance, but the foundation was provided by Art Anthology’s Mud Texture Paste run through the pretty Bubbles stencil. As well as splashes here and there of AA’s paints using Sorbet, Velvets and Stone Effects. (Below are a list of products used. )Instant coffee  spritzed with water also provided for some warmth and depth to my layout. I hope you have been inspired to photograph the unexpected. Embrace what has been provided to you by the earth’s complexion, photograph it and then get messy with your mixed media products in order to save those memories. 

Products used are:

Velvets-Terracotta, Tuxedo

Stone Effects-Concrete

Sorbet-Chocolate

Stencil-Bubbles

Mud Texture Paste

Enjoy my Snapguide tutorial below for my step x step process.

By The Sea – Lighthouse Frame

Hello creative friends, glad to be sharing another DT post. For today’s project I made a mixed media, somewhat altered lighthouse frame. I decided not to add a photo yet (needing one that’s just right), instead I removed the glass piece and replaced it with pattern paper and a wooden sentiment, I saved the glass piece for when I add the photo later.

I love playing with lots of texture, color and embellishments.  I used a combination of Art Anthology Colorations color sprays – Sandcastle, Warm, Waimea Bay and Peacock Feathers, Velvet Mediums – Kona, Fiji and Limeaid, Sorbet medium – Kenyan Copper, Gemstone medium – Amber and Stone Effects – Bone. Everything came together so nicely, it’s a great way to relax and have some fun.

Hope you feel inspired to create your own… you will find a step by step tutorial with a complete list of supplies posted below.

Enjoy…

Rusty vintage frame by Marleen.

Hi, Marleen here with a new project.
I altered a frame. In the Netherlands we have Kings-day and the whole country is celebrating.
Everybody can sell anything you want. So the country is one big flea market the end of April. So I bought myself a 50ct frame!

My goal was to get a really old rusty effect with all the Art Anthology  mediums and inks and I love the final result!

Of course I made a Snapguide tutorial for you!
