Altered art with Art Anthology?!

A little gift .. .as a thank you to a friend.
The feathers are from chickens from this friend.
I made this during our holiday… with found feathers at our accomodation.
I scored the bread board and the pebbles during one of our outings to thrift stores. 

Easy to do .. on any surface or any substrate. 

I (Ellie), would love it if you would take the time to have a look at the step-by-step just for you AA fans in the Snapguide!

The project in an early stage:
(LOVE these stencils!)

AND a close-up of the finished project:

AND a few pictures of the finished project on the wall.

Enjoy!

I made a lot of different pictures, because I knew I was not going to be able to photograph this at home. Here a funny one: the project with a lot of glass pebbles and tissue wrap, to get you in the mood! (grin)

Enjoy your day, and happy crafting until next time!!

Playing with Minx Shimmering Inks – no 6

Remember these posts from me, Ellie?

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 4

Remember that, on an old table: using a bucket of water and paper, and of course … Minx,
I created a whole bunch of backgrounds?? I did a second post about that too:

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 5

Today’s post features the beautiful vibrancy of the Minx Shimmering Inks. 


The background on canvas paper.. still wet but drying in the sun!
Later on, I discovered that I must have dropped some water on it by mistake, as it had more drops than showing on this photo… that’s part of the fun!
I had to be everywhere, because the robot lawnmower wanted to mow over my backgrounds sometimes, hehe.


I wanted to enhance the drops, so I did not cover it up, but overstamped and used the background as part of the images.

Don’t forget.. there is a Snapguide at the end of this post, showing the steps to achieve the finished card.


A close-up: watch the droplet… with the inks all pushed to the edges of it. I think that’s magic… I couldn’t have painted it that way!

Now for the second background:  very different paper, but a beauty too!


I cut it to size…

… and created this:
  

I sponged these tiny dots from the Lotus Stencil around the edge.

…for step-by-steps of this second card too, please see the Snapguide.

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 5

Ellie Knol again here today.

I decided to make backgrounds with Minx Shimmering Inks, on all types of paper.

It is really easy, and relaxing to do while enjoying the sun…

As promised, this time I’ll show the ones that had some white heat embossing, gesso and acrylic paint on it before coloring with Minx. Also some on canvas paper.
See the blogpost called

I hope that I have inspired you to create something pretty today and play even when you’re on vacation. You can add the final touches when back home.
