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!

For this project, I started out with this plain little wooden box I purchased at a thrift store.

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.

Here is what i came up with, i will share a few detail images then you have the chance to check out my Snapguide tutorial below.   Have fun 😀


I started with a 5×7 canavs from the dollar store.  I had some embellishments like the resin frame and some metal clock pieces and wooden gears also from the dollar sttore

Rusty leaves layout by Valerie

Hello there !

I have a Fall layout to show you today. I know, we are in February, but between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and soon to be Valentine’s day, I didn’t have the chance to scrap this Fall picture I like. So here it is, and thanks to that, I did use my rust texture set !

Beside the rust set, I also use the Diamond Grunge stencil with Leaf Sorbet on both sides of the paper. Bonus : the pattern matches the leaves !

To create this rusty effect, you will apply first the rust truffle, then touches of Terracotta, and a hint of Rust Amber for the finish.

On these two pictures, one leaf is painted, the other is a altered metal leaf…

Look how the Leaf Sorbet really pop and shine on this layout !

If you want to see how I make the leaves, you can watch the complete tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today !

Stay tune for more projects from the DT, and see you soon…

Altered Paint Brush with Karan Gerber

Hello friends and welcome to my blog today.  Its Karan here on the blog today for Art Anthology and today, I am sharing with you a altered paintbrush.  This is the first time i have ever attempted something like this and to be honest, i was a bit nervous after starting it.
The paintbrush is from the dollar store, just a cheap one actually. The embellishments , the clay pieces i made by hand using some molds;  Here is what i put together for today’s project
I am in love with this piece i love how the few products i used really enhanced the different embellishments i used. From clay to metal.

My 2018 Power Word “Serenity” by Toni

Happy 2018 to everyone. For my first design team project for Art Anthology I wanted to do a layout featuring my chosen power word for this year “Serenity”. Inspired also by our beautiful mood board this month….Art Anthology has the most vivid gorgeous colors to accomplish my layout. 

I began  by altering my background by sponging on Velvet Tuxedo through our Meridian Stencil and then added lovely texture with our Chevron stencil and using the gold paint from the Rust Texture Set. If you don’t have this set you can also use Sorbet-Vegas Gold, but I encourage you to get our rust set as it is so much fun to work with. Flowers were sprayed and painted with our Colorations Sprays and Sorbet and Velvet paints.Seed beads were added to enhance the stamens and centers of the flowers. Wishing you a New Year filled with love, hope and joy and that your new beginnings will provide opportunities to make a difference in the world. xoxo Toni

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….
