Nemo the Cat on Vinyl

Hi Art Anthology fans, I am back with my second project as an Art Anthology Dream-team member. This time I made a layout on an old record and used a picture of our cat Nemo.

Made this as a present for my daughter who misses the cat since she moved out to go study in Belgium.

Because the record has an interesting structure a bit of stenciling was enough for a background, I choose the stone effect dimensional medium Sandstone, because the color looked nice with the colors of the cat.

Don’t you just love the effect in combination with the Gothic stencil?

The colors of the Sorbet dimensional paint and the Colorations spray are also based on the colors I have in my picture. I really love the coloring part of mixed media altered. Sometimes you have a carnival of colors, then after gesso it is a bit boring. Adding the colors is bringing a composition to live I think.

I made you a video of the process:

List of supplies:

Stencil: Gothic

Colorations sprays: Indigo, Peacock Feather, Juicy.

Sorbet Dimensional Paint: Mermaid, Walnut, Kenyan Copper and Vegas Gold.

Stone effect : Sandstone

 

I really hope I could inspire you to create with Art Anthology products. We would love to see what you make with them in our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art.

Mixed Media Beach Board by Toni

Hi everyone… hope you are all having a nice month of August. Today I have for you a clip board I purchased from the dollar store and I transformed it into a beachy layout, featuring my daughter and my niece about 25 years ago… Hope you enjoy. I started by adding some wood grain paper and then priming the surface for my sprays and paints. Using some drift wood from the beach, twigs from my yard, fishnet, and paper clay elements provided lots of yummy texture. Applying my Colorations Sprays and Minx Shimmering Inks really brought this to life. All of the supplies used will be listed below. Take the unexpected and turn it into a keepsake to hold your memories. I hope you will give this a try. I also have a process video below for your viewing. Wishing you a day filled with peace & love…. hugs

Supplies used:

ColorationsTimeless, Wiamea Bay, Siesta Key, Sandcastle, Granny Smith

Minx Shimmering InksDecadent, Gold Dust

Hi there, I am so excited to share my first project for Art Anthology with you all.
Because I am a real steampunk kind of girl I thought something in that style would be fun to start with.
I used a 30 x40 cm canvas for this one and lots of steampunk embellishments, some resin, some metals and even party straws from the toys section of a store nearby.
Here are some close up pictures.
I just love the effect of the rust texture paste  together with the spray’s and paints.
List of Art Anthology supplies I used:
Colorations Color Spray: Warm, Timeless and Juicy
Sorbet Dimensional Medium: Kenyan Copper and Walnut
Texture Set: Rust
Stencil: Pipe Dream
If you would like to know how I made this, here is a video:

I really hope you like my first project and that I could inspire you to create with Art Anthology products. We would love to see what you make with them in our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art.

Mixed Media Embroidery Hoop by Toni

Hi everyone, today I have a fun altered project that you can create using fabric and Art Anthology’s products.  I started with my embroidery hoop with muslin material.  I added some texture paste through one of our stencils and then began adding my pretty colors of Sorbets, Velvets & Coloration Sprays. For some of my embellishments I used hot glue and used them in sea shell molds. Then I primed them with gesso and continued using the beautiful AA products on them. Fun summery project, I hope you enjoyed and for your pleasure I have a video tutorial below. Have a spectacular day !

“Life Began In A Garden” by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new design team project for Art Anthology.  I have always loved rusty things , antiques, worn looking items, so it doesn’t surprise me that my most favorite thing to do regarding ART is making something look old, vintage, aged.  I started with a T!m Holtz Vignette and with the help of Art Anthology products and some crackle varnish, this little project came to be.  The video below shows how I created a peeled paint look using some of our paints. I used Stone Effects-Bone on the window to provide texture. Florals were added to the sides of the vignette. After the peeled paint technique, crackle varnish was then added and Coloration Sprays as well as Shine-Kelly were added for a wonderful old mossy look. Thank you for stopping by, be sure to take a moment to view the video below, and all the supplies used for Art Anthology are listed below. Have a wonderful week !

Mixed Media Vintage Frame by Toni

Hi everyone, today we’re going to get a bit grungy.  I purchased a frame at the dollar store and decided I wanted to alter it up. I first added some lace to the frame to give some pretty texture, then I primed the surface with gesso for all my sprays and paints I wanted to add.  I’m  not really a purple kind of girl, but sometimes it’s good to create with something out of your comfort zone… It helps you grow as a creative. This project is filled with layers of lace, mixed media products, papers and embellies.  Just keep layering until you get the look you like… “It’s Artist’s Choice”. I will have a list of products used below. Take a ride to the dollar tree, see what they have that you can alter up. Have fun with your creativity ! For your enjoyment I have included a process video below. xoxo Toni

Products used:

Colorations-Warm, Sedona, Plush, Sandcastle, Raider

I used one of my new stencils 

The stamps I used are in the same style as the stencil(also my design) witch will released next month at a Dutch company called KiCoStamps.
