Sea Corrosion Altered Box

Hello everyone, Jenn here sharing a newly repurposed project using some amazing Art Anthology products!

I love taking old, plain items and making them useful and pretty!

Using both the Rust and Patina Texture sets combined with Colorations Sprays and Cotton Velvet Medium from Art Anthology I recreated its boring exterior! Below I have provided an easy to follow Snapguide tutorial on how it was done.

Altered Containers for Craft Supplies by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with some organization inspiration. I love my craft supplies to be organized and I so enjoy altering the containers that I place my supplies in. It serves at a couple purposes…. it helps in storage of my trinkets as well as it’s a piece of art to inspire me in my craft room.¬†I had this empty plastic peanut container that was a nice size and new I could use it to put all my seashells in, so I decided to alter it using my Art Anthology texture pastes as well as Minx Shimmering Inks.¬†I¬† took fishnet and saturated it in sculpture medium and wrapped it around my container and allowed it to dry then removed it and gave it a nice coat of white gesso.¬†I wanted to be able to see the sea shells inside the container, that is the reason I prepped the fishnet in this manner.¬†Once the gesso has dried attach the net to the container using 3D matt gel and hot glue and then start decorating with shells, starfish, silver dollars, pieces of coral etc.¬†Using a combination of my Minx Shimmering Inks and our Patina Texture Set, I was able to achieve this pretty mossy under the sea texture.¬†I also added art stones in assorted sizes for some added interest and texture.¬† The thing I love about mixed media is it’s all about the layers and textures. The more you add the better your project gets.¬†¬†The title on my container is a T!m Holtz Chipboard Quote and I also added colors from our Minx to enhance it.¬†The lid was altered using a small metal light house surrounded by shells, fishnet, starfish etc. and then prepped with white gesso and our AA beautiful products were added for color.¬†Hoping this inspired you to grab some of your containers and give them a face lift.¬† Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook¬† HERE so you can also inspire all of us with your beautiful creations.

Below is a list of AA products used on my container:

Minx Shimmering Inks – Midnight, Bankroll, Decadent, Panache

Patina Texture Set

Mardi Gras mask by Valerie

Hello !

Valerie here today to show you a project for an Holiday you maybe are not familiar with, Mardi Gras ! Fat Tuesday is an old Middle Age tradition where peasants disguised themselves, feasted and burned a effigy of the king. It was something tolerate by the church to replace the older pagan custom for Spring. So, I will just stay with the disguise today with an altered mask !

Not far from where I live is the beautiful town of New Orleans, where Mardi Gras is a real deal Holiday ! The official colors for this are green and purple, so I choose the Mardi Gras Velvet and Emerald Dimensional Gemstones mediums for my project.

Between black gesso and those mediums, I  applied Dazzle Clear Coat to add some sparkle. Then I use Emerald Dimensional Gemstones medium and Mardi Gras Velvet medium.

And don’t forget a touch of gold with the Gold Metal Effect medium !

Can you see the little flakes of gold from the Dazzle ? And the Gold Metal Effect looks like gold powder !

I did a video tutorial for you to see the whole process. You can watch it here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thanks you for stopping by today ! I hope you enjoy seeing this project as much as I enjoyed create it ! See you soon for another project…


Happy Journal

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Jenn here today and I am going to share with you how I created my happy journal cover using Art Anthology products.

For starters, this project is the result of two projects that were both lost. By lost I mean not looking the way I had planned. I was cleaning my studio and found these and said maybe rather than trashing them?…and this is what I did!

Please see my Snapguide link below for instructions and full supply list.

Art Anthology Products Used:

Colorations Sprays – Avocado, Warm

Rust set (Amber)

Bubbles Stencil

Minx Shimmering Inks –¬† Panache, Bankroll

Fairy Dust Spray – Ice

This is where it all began. A journal cover I had started to alter and pieces removed from a small canvas I was unhappy with.


A closer look….

Mixed media canvas about Maths…

Happy New Year from Valerie !

There is no reason to create less than in 2017, right ? I hope you start this new year with alot of projects in mind, and I hope I will help you in your creativity with my new project inspired by the January moodboard…

That was a lot of work but I am so pleased with the result ! I wanted to create a canvas to celebrate Maths and found a quote from Albert Einstein :¬†“Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” I had my title !

I used three different stencils, two from the Off the Grid stack, and the Blocked stencil. You will also find some Mud texture paste and Plush Colorations spray.

And I did play with Velvet and Sorbet mediums : Orchid, Mayan gold, Purple Rain, Mardi Gras and Dragon Fruit.

Maths are so important in the progress of the human kind… In fact, they are present everywhere, especially in art !¬†I think this piece could be a perfect gift for a Maths teatcher… Never too early to think about end-of-the-school-year gift or even a dad’s day gift ?

You can watch my video tutorial to see my creative process right here :

And if you need another push to creativity, here is the moodboard to help you start with colors…

Once again happy new year, and see you soon for another mixed media project…
