Shabby Altered Box

Hello crafters !

Valerie here, back with a new mixed media project !

Soft colors of Spring, butterflies and flowers were my inspiration for today… I’m came up with this shabby altered box :

I use two Colorations sprays on this box, Avocado and Wild Orchid, and in two ways, by spraying (box and embellishments) and by painting (the cameo and the frame).

Here another close-up on the clay frame and cameo, painted with the Colorations sprays with a brush…

You will find the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology You Tube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today, and see you in two weeks…

Time flies when you are clowning around

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here with my first March inspiration.

This time I made a square 6*6” chipboard altered board using lots of Art Anthology stencils, paints  and sprays.

This chipboard was first covered with gesso. Then I added texture paste with our fantastic Art Anthology …… stencil.

Here are some close ups for you to see:

 

 

 

The whole composition was born when I decided to add a stamped clown image over the board and to use the stamped ” Clowning around” sentiment.

This was my first time to mix Sorbet paint with 3d art stones and it worked in the best possible artistic way over the board.

As always I made a full Snapguide tutorial that you can see HERE:

And a full list of supplies  is added here for you:


Hope you liked my art piece. See you again in  two weeks with another Art Anthology inspiration.

Altered Reverse Canvas with Brandy


Hello again!! Brandy here today with a new project. This was so fun! It took me a while to figure just how I would do it, but I wanted it to be just right. I’ve been wanting to try decorating on the reverse side of a canvas for some time. It can be kind of like a shadow box, but the wood frame gives you a bigger area to create on that faces forward.

As usual, I’ve created a tutorial over at Snapguide, so you can give this project a try yourself!!

Paint on clay Winter banner

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today and I am going to share my new Art Anthology experiment- using Art Anthology products over the dry polymer clay surfaces.

During my time on this team I try to use Art Anthology paints over different surfaces and to see the results. So far I used wood , canvas, cardstock and clear acrylic board. Today I used polymer clay pieces and I need to say that Art Anthology products work perfectly over this surfaces too.

So here is a Winter banner I made with Makin’s Clay non baked polymer clay (you just need to wait like 12 hours before it’s totally dry to apply the paints over the surface).

 

And now for some close ups to all three banner pieces:

 

 

 

 

As you can sew from those close- ups I used Art Anthology stencil and dimentional paint over the clay surface and it’s works perfectly!

So here is a full step by step tutorial for you:

And as always- full Art Anthology product list is HERE:

I hope that I inspired you to try totally different surfaces with our fantastic products!

See you soon again!

XO XO by Toni

Hi everyone, Happy February, it’s the month of love… and well if you know me you know how much I love steampunk. I love everything about it, the fantasy, the grunge, the unusual, the colors, the Victorian feel to it. It does not limit my imagination, I can go wild with transforming an ordinary object into something crazy and unexpected.

I purchased these two letters quite some time ago at my local craft store on clearance. Originally they were $14.99 a piece…. what !!!! But I got them for $2.00 each, what a steal.

Loaded with lots of yummy textures enhanced with Art Anthology’s paints, sprays and pastes helped achieve the aged look. 

With the use of Art Anthology’s stencil,  drippings from my glue gun and lots of different sized seed beads, my new wall art work started to come alive. 

I just love using unexpected items in my art work and my letter here is filled with floral rocks that were beautifully transformed with Art Anthology’s paints.

Many of my items on this piece were made from paperclay, grunge board or plastic, but the patina’d look that AA’s paste and paints provides transforms them into metal-like piece.

I hope this has inspired you to enter the world of steampunk, don’t be afraid, let your imagination run free and just have fun with it. For your pleasure I have included a Snapguide tutorial for your viewing and also below are a list of products from AA that helped me achieve the look I was going for. xoxo Toni

Altered chipboard heart

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Valentine February Art Anthology post.

This is Irit here from Irit Shalom’s Designs blog  and I just want to say ” Happy Valentine Day” to you all!

 

irit_sig

This time I made an altered chipboard heart project and this is a kind of ” use whatever you have” one.

Most of us (be honest, you too) have this junk box with all possible left over embellishments that are not a part of a set or collection.
They are all in all possible colors and textures and shapes and we never actually use them.
So this project is the one that makes you to open this junk box and to grab all things you would never use the other way and to make one single altered project that looks fabulous and costs nothing (yes, the gorgeous Art Anthology paints and mists have a cost, but it’s not like you use the whole bottle for this project? ).
So as you can see other than Art Anthology products I added here buttons, pieces of chipboards, metal trinkets, lace, die cuts and … You name it- it’s here.

So here are a few close ups to this  shiny red heart :

And as always here is the Snapguide tutorial:

Remember your Blessings Canvas

Hello!  Phyllis here to share my latest Mixed Media Canvas!  I wanted the canvas to have a soft look to it and I achieved that by spritzing Art Anthology’s Colorations and then spritzing with water to lighten the colors.

I love Art Anthology’s Bubbles Stencil,  you can tilt it sideways and it gives a whole new look!

After I used texture paste and Art Anthology’s Bubbles stencil I sprinkled glitter on before heat drying it,  it gives it a sparkle to the background!

I gave the dragfly a couple sprays of Art Anthology’s Colorations and then a spritz or two of water,  it gave me the look I was going for.

 

If you ever doubt using new ink sprays just grab a piece of scrap paper and test it out!  We have a bunch of Snapguide and YouTube Tutorials using Art Anthology products!
