Color My World by Toni

Hi everyone, I’m up on the blog today using some old dried up ready for the trash craft items, but if you are like me, sometimes it’s real hard to discard things.  I decided to take this paint palette that I’ve used in the past for rusting my pieces, and old paint brush that has seen better days,  a canvas that had been started in the past but I really wasn’t fond of it , and some package materials from previous art supplies in order to provide me a new inspiration piece.

Here was my rusty old paint palette that was ready for the garbage.  Hard to believe anything good could be created from this, but with Art Anthology paints I was able to get some vibrant splatters to my canvas and color palette which brought the entire project together. Check around your craft room to see what you might be able to alter. Take a moment to enjoy my snapguide tutorial below on my creative journey with this project.  Photographed below are also the colors I used for this creation.

Bee Happy door hanger

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here with my new Mixed Media tutorial and this time we are going to make a Happy door hanger or as you can see it is ” Bee Happy” one.

As you can see I made it in bee’s yellow and just black and white and used tons of Art Anthology products.

The main images and the sentiment were stamped and heat embossed. My tip for you: if you wish to use mists over stamped images first heat emboss them! So easy and keeps the images untouched even with the heavy spraying.

So here are some close- ups for you to see and then there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial as always.

 

 

Here is our Snapguide tutorial:

Wooden wall hanger

Wooden wall hanger with Josefine

Hi and welcome back!

Today I’m sharing a small project with you using a piece of birch wood and Art Anthology paints to create a wall hanger. Even though it’s a small piece of art, I had a lot of fun creating it!

I prepared a video tutorial for you, showing you how I created the image on the birch wood:

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial 🙂

Do you ever paint on wood? I love how the Art Anthology paints turn out! They have a very distinct sheen to them. It’s hard to explain, but I encourage you to give it a try and see for yourself 🙂

Here are the supplies I used:

A Twist On Canvas Art With Brandy


Hello Art Anthology fans! Brandy here to share a super cute project with you!
Inspired by two adorable little flower fairies, I set off on a journey into a color combo I haven’t used very much in the past. I love how it turned out though!
Just a couple 6×6 canvases hooked together with two small hinges, and I was off!

For that fabulous texture, I used both my Twilight and Diamond Grunge stencils.

Wanting to keep things dainty, I chose some tiny white diecuts as accents to fill in the inside of the canvas.

Twilight Stencil
Sunshine Sorbet Paint

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

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…

Hope you have a wonderful day!

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:

Smile : Mixed Media canvas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first July tutorial made with Art Anthology products.
 Irit is here again and this time I made a small, card sized, altered Mixed Media canvas in a dark , but yet shabby style.
The background was made with Art Anthology stencils and dimensional paints and also it was made over black gesso you can see the shiny purple paint seen over the canvas.

The flowers cluster was misted with black Colorations spray and then painted with a few other AA paints.
The die cut cardstock pieces were also painted to fit the colors of the project.
Two other pieces added here are the clay mold fairy and a chipboard title ; both were painted to get the colors desired for the finished project.

As always you can see the full Snapguide  step by step tutorial HERE:
