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!

Altered Skull Drinking Cup by Farrel Tailor

Happy Hauntings Everyone!!! I am back with another Halloween themed project and this time I decided to alter a plastic skull head cup I found at Kmart here in Australia.

  1. I started by painting my cup and chipboard pieces with black gesso. I then used modeling paste and AA’s Cracked stencil to create the illusion of veins.

2. Once dry, I then applied Bone Stone Effects with my palette knife randomly all over the cup and dried with my heat tool.

3. I then adhered my chipboard pieces and painted again with black chipboard. Once it was dry, I then added Black Leather Jacket Sorbet Dimensional Paint all over and dried again.

4. Next I used Tango and Boysenberry Velvet Dimensional Paint to colour the chipboard spider and flourish.

5. I then used a mousse to colour the all over the black gesso area.

6. To finish off the cup I then added Rust Texture Set  and some small plastic spiders.

Art Anthology products Used

Velvet – Tango and Boysenberry

Texture Effect – Rust Texture Set 

Stone Effects –  Bone

Halloween tags with Daniëlle

Hello there!

It’s Daniëlle and I am still in Halloween mode 😉

So here are some cool Halloween tags for you:

Want to know how I created them? It’s really not that hard! So here’s a quick photo step by step:

1: add color with colorations spray. I used Juicy and Steel (which is a greyish color). I also added minx ink Radiance for some shimmer.

2: For texture and more interest I added some Tuxedo velvet through the Cracked stencil.

3: I wanted my tags to be less bright so I added in some Raider colorations spray.

4: Next I found myself a piece of lace which I colored with the colors I used before. So Raider and Juicy colorations and Randiance minx.

5: To make a nice tag I went to look for some embellishments. Add everything together and you have two nice Halloween themed tags.

That’s all! I hope you liked it and I hope to see you here again next time!

“Fall” Layout featuring Velvet Paint Background

Hey everyone!  Suzanne here today to share a Fall inspired layout that boasts an array of Art Anthology Paints!  I’m hoping we have at least a small simulation of Fall this year here in the Deep South, but until then, one can dream and scrapbook about it!

The Velvet Paints are so yummy.  They have a thick consistency that dries with a super gorgeous and shimmery matte finish!  I randomly applied the paint with a palette knife and allowed it to air-dry.

While the background dried, I paint paper die-cut leaves with several colors of AA paints; I applied several colors at a time while they were wet or close to drying.  This allowed for a little color variation with each leaf.  Once these are completely dry, all that’s left to do is assemble the layout!  Here are some close-ups.

Whether it’s Shine, Velvets, or Sorbet, Art Anthology Paints work beautifully together to make your project come to life!

Art Anthology Supplies:
Velvets: “Mustard, Fiji, Tango”
Shine: “Azalea Pink, Kelly Green”
Sorbet: “Kenyan Copper, Vegas Gold”

Other Supplies:
cardstock, patterened paper
paper die-cuts and embellishments
tulle

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope that I have inspired you to get into your crafty space and get some ink on your hands!  If you need more inspiration, make sure you are following us on Pinterest and don’t forget to join our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

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.

Cheese Mixed Media Layout for Beginners

Hi everyone. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout for beginners. I LOVE the Colorations Sprays in the shop and I just want to use them all…all the time. The colors are so vibrant! For this layout, I used six different colors.

Using a paint brush, I brushed the Colorations Sprays onto the cardstock that was initially white with writing. The colors used on this layout include: Granny Smith, Ink Spot, Salmon, Glorious, Plush and Juicy.

I decided to use a variety of Colorations Sprays to create a fun, happy layout and this layout just feels happy to me when I look at it. We had such a great time that day.

I used the Lattice Stencil to create splashes below the matted photos with a palette knife and Velvet Cotton.

I embellished the layout using stickers and chipboard from my stash. It feels good to use up those un-touched embellishments that have been sitting for some time.

Thanks so much for visiting today! What’s your favorite color or colors from our Colorations Sprays?

Products Used:

Colorations Sprays: Granny, Ink Spot, Salmon, Glorious, Plush, Juicy

Stencil: Lattice

Velvet: Cotton

I hope I inspired you to create a fun mixed media layout using Colorations Sprays and stencils! For more ideas visit us on Pinterest and also join our Facebook group, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

Altered Notebook by Farrel Tailor

Hi there AA Fans, Farrel here again to share another DT project and today I am sharing my altered notebook. If you would like to watch me create this please click on the video at the end of the blog xx

  1. To start I covered my notebook with tissue paper and then covered with black gesso. I also applied a coat of black gesso to my chipboard pieces and resin.

 

2. Once everything was adhered, I then used the dry brushing technique using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint all over.

3. After drying I then sprays Patience Colorations Spray all over. Then dry brushed Boysenberry Velvet Dimensional Paint to the chipboard and resin pieces.

  

4. Then after a quick dry, I applied Teal Shine Dimensional Paint. Once I was happy with the blend of colours, I then used a gold mousse to highlight all over the notebook.

5. I added some glass glitter and then applied Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint. I found that the notebook needed a little more “pop” and once I added this, I was happy.

This is the list of products that I used:

Velvet: Fiji, Cotton, Boysenberry

Colorations: Patience

Shine: Teal

Thanks for dropping and can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon xx

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!

Stay Strong Art Journal Layout by Jenn DuBell

Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing with you a layout in my art journal using Art Anthology sprays and mediums!

I find art journaling to be one of the most relaxing art forms. Whenever I feel like my “creative mojo” is lost, I just sit down with some paper scraps, sprays, mediums, stamps and stencils along with an art journal and let my mind do the work! This page came from one of these times.

I love the different effects that you can achieve using Art Anthology products. I have used many in this layout.

AA Velvets – Fiji, Cotton, Boysenberry, Dayglow Yellow
AA Shines – Grape, Azalea, Canary
AA Colorations – Patience, Juicy, Siesta Key
AA Stencils – Bits of Grunge, Blocked, Dot matrix
Additional items used:
White and clear Gesso
Clear embossing powder
Black Archival Ink
Stamps
printed napkins

After coating my pages with clear gesso, I added spritzes of Colorations sprays in Patience. I added spritzes of water and allowed it to run a bit as well as using a brush to pick up excess and swipe along edges.


Next, I used my fingers and a brush to smear some AA Velvet in Dayglow Yellow mixed with a small amount of water.

Next I mixed AA velvets in Fiji and Cotton with a bit of white gesso to achieve the aqua color seen. I used the Cotton through a script stencil and the mixed color with the AA Dot Matrix stencil. I used the reverse side of the stencil to use the excess paint by rubbing onto areas of my pages.

Next I added some random stamping and more stenciling. Using a soft gel medium, I applied a torn bit of a napkin (Jane Davenport) for the faces.

Finally I added lots of AA colors to my stamping along with more stenciling for my final result! I added a bit more hair by blending AA mediums in yellows and oranges. They blend very well against the napkin edge!

Thanks so much for visiting and viewing my post today. I hope that you are inspired to get crafty and creative! All products used here and many others are available online at the link below!
