Newborn wall hanger…

Ellie Knol here today…
and I created a wall hanger for you…

Making this project took me over a week… trial and error… starting, not being satisfied, and changing details all the time.. it was a bit frustrating, but I am happy with it now.

I started with a tiny blue t-shirt, with text on it that I wanted covered. I was happy with the outcome of the shirt straight away.. just added some white highlights later on.

But the base… grrrr… If you look at the step-by-step in the Snapguide tutorial, you’ll see what I mean.

I like this detail in the background!

The finished project…

 

…hope this little newborn boy will see it later on in his life and be happy with it! His mommy will, anyway!

I’ve created a Snapguide tutorial for you:

SEE you!

Nautical shadow box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first May Art Anthology project.

I am a big fan of cheap $ store products that can be altered and embellished.

So with Art Anthology great paints, colorations and stencils I made this Nautical shadow box and as you can see it looks fabulous!

 

I decided not to cover the inside of the shadow part with paint and the white space makes the inside stencilled piece to shine.

Here are some close – ups to this piece:

Have Fun With A Rusty Technique by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here inspired by our beautiful mood board this month, with yummy texture and deep bold colors. Rust is probably one of my favorite color palettes to create with and I was so excited to start working with it.

I found an egg crate in the trash and decided to alter it as an Easter project. Wonderful AA products provided easy transformation for this trash article.

The cross was made from air dry clay and then crackled with AA’s products seeping into the cracks.

With some texture powder added to my paints it gave me a nice gritty texture.

This was such a fun and unexpected transformation. I hope this has inspired you to get creative with our products. Wishing you a blessed Easter Holiday and creative days ahead. 

The following Art Anthology products were used:

Velvet- Portabello, Terracotta

Stone Effect-Sandstone

Metal Effect-Gold

Sorbet-Chocolate, Mint Julep, Cayman, Black Leather Jacket

Summer Colors With Brandy!


Hello Art Anthology fans! It’s not even spring here in the Rockies, but I was the feeling the sun shining with this project!!
To create something I could use for a layout, but be a little different, I dug an old embroidery hoop out of my stash.  Brighten up any space…all i need is to choose a photo! 🙂


A little Brick Stone Effects brightened my bubbles texture, and some Indulgence Minx Ink softened it to perfection.
Filling in the blanks with some Glorious Colorations spray looks like sunshine!

I used some Pixies sorbet to and my blossom stencil for some awesome texture.


Here’s a tutorial on how I made made this beauty!

50 Shades of Greige by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new canvas. Now “greige is all the rage” and if your not sure what that is it’s a combination of the warm tones of gray with the cool tones of beige….. hence “greige”. It’s muted tones are easy on the eyes provide a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. Coupled with black or walnuts provide a wonderful cozy organic feel. 

Using only a few different products and mixing them either with whites to highlight or black to deepen allowed me to get several different shades of “greige”. Some of the canvas I would like to refer to as a happy accident. 

Art Anthology’s Stone Effect Sandstone really provided that pretty beige tone as well as texture to the project, and the Sorbet in Black Leather Jacket and Linen helped to tone down and deepen my Metal Effects Silver here and there on the canvas.

I believe the addition of the black cardboard and walnut chipboard provided a richness and gave it a more masculine feel. 

I hope I have inspired to become a chemist in your craftroom, start mixing those colors and see what you come up with. You never know you may discover the next color trending on Instagram and Pinterest. Happy creating !!!
