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…

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

Japanese style bookmarks

Hello crafters !

Valerie again with a project inspired by my recent visit to a bookstore, where I bought two Japanese books. I have a soft spot for the beauty and elegance of Japanese culture, and it inspire me to create these bookmarks :

I choose colors reminding me of the Land of the Rising Sun : Timeless, Juicy and Barbie for the Colorations sprays, and Coral for the Sorbet Dimensional paint.

I choose the Blocked stencil as a reminder of the square design in the stamp, and the Retro one because it looks like colorful sun on the bookmark.

You will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel.

Thank you for reading this post and see you soon for another project !

Scrapbooking layout built with inks

Hello !

Valerie here to show you how to build a stunning background only with inks and papers !

Few stripes of paper and two inks are enough to create dimensions on the background. I used the Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Warm with a paint brush and water (see the link to products at the end of this post).

I layered pieces of papers from the same stack and added three die cut sprayed with Waimea Bay to drawn the eye to the picture. Drops of gesso are the final touches to this layout.

Mixed media brushes canvas

Hello !

It’s too cold and gloomy outside… I needed warm colors so I choose some into my Art anthology stash and put them on a canvas !

Some crackle paste and three Colorations sprays with a stencil to create this canvas ! You will find the list with links of Art Anthology products at the end of this post.

Love the effect of Colorations sprays sinking into the crackles !

I added some butterflies because Art makes my heart flutters…

Steampunk heart canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with a new mixed media project using AA paints, inks and stencil ! I called it “La fabrique a bonheur” (hapiness manufacture).

 

Layering the different mediums was the key to obtain this rusty look. I used two Velvet in Tango and Portobello, and three Colorations sprays, in Juicy, French Toast and Siesta Key.

Texture is created with special powder and heat, dimension by layering cardboard gears and grunge board strips.

You can watch the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, as well as other tutorials…

Thank you for reading this post today. See you next month for another tutorial…

Here is the list of AA products to create this canvas :

Mixed media bookmarks

Hello there !

Valerie here today to wish you an happy new year and to show you my new project with Art Anthology products !

Reading has always been important in my life, and I’m trying to pass the love of reading to my daughters. That’s what inspired me for my project : the love of reading !

Did you ever try the Art Anthology stencils ? I used one on this project, the Such A Drip stencil, with Velvet Dimensional paint in Mardi Gras color. Look at the incredible texture it makes !

The colorations sprays were handy too to create the background or color the heart stamp.
