FLY mini-book, by Marleen

Hello everyone, Marleen here with a mini-book tutorial for you.

My inspiration came from everywhere!! Do you remember my earlier post about the lace book cover I made?? Well I promised you to show the inside later on. Guess what, the cover was too small for all those pages.
So I made a bigger cover now and finished the inside pages!

I used many many Art Anthology stencils you can find them all HERE.

Here you can see the video tutorial:

Hope it inspired you all 😉

Christmas In July- Mixed Media Cards by Toni

Toni here with a design team project that was inspired using this months mood board. Well I know we have a few months before Christmas but it will be here before you know it and I thought the mood board were perfect colors were holiday cards.  

I decided I wanted to create some prints from my gelli plate so I used 4 colors, Shine Ruby and Kelly and Velvet Desire and Shamrock and applied it to my plate and made about 6 prints.Some I decided to use to diecut some poinsettias and other I decided to use as the background for my cards. This card I cut the poinsettias out and applied seed beads as well as homemade snow (equal parts, white paint, glue, baking soda) and also Diamond Dust glitter. I then used our Floral Tile stencil to add with Mud and once dry I added Nuvo drops to the centers. The next card was done by adding paints to a 3D embossing folder and then running your paper through to get this beautiful texture but vividly blended background. The poinsettia on this card was also created by just adding Amber (Rust Texture Set) to the embossing folder and then diecutting the flower petals.More Diamond Dust and seed beads were added to the flower to enhance.The last card the background was created from one of my gelli prints that I also used the stencil Twilight and it provides this distressed starry pattern. Perfect as a backdrop for my star die cuts.Hope this has inspired you to give your Christmas cards a bit of artsy vibe this year. Don’t be afraid to try new techniques so that card can be a one of a kind and the recipient will be amazed that you took time to make something especially creative for them.  For your pleasure I have included a Snapguide tutorial below to show some photos of my process for these cards. xoxo Toni

All We Need Is Love…. by Toni

Toni here and it was time to have fun in my art journal again. I love an art journal because it allows me to try out new techniques as well as putting my thoughts down visually with my art. There is something absolutely healing about it. So let’s get started. Decided to emboss some papers and add dry wall tape to provide my background textures, and then it was time to have fun with my Art Anthology pastes. For this I used the Patina Set as well as the Rust set.  For your background texture you can also use AA’s Mud texture paste and run it through a stencil. I just wanted to do something different this time. I next applied Rust Terracotta Velvet here and there mixed a bit of craft sand with it just because I wanted a bit more texture. Art Anthology products mix well with one another as well as other textures such as sand, pebbles, seed beads, gel mediums etc. My gears were die cut and then the Rust Truffle Paste as well as the Patina Teal and Seafoam Green were added. Hope this has given you some new ideas to use your products with. If you don’t have an art journal you can make one from an old book. Glue several pages together to increase the strength of your substrate. There are many tutorials on YOUTUBE that you can check out. Super easy don’t let it stop you from creating. xoxo Toni

The following are AA products I used for this piece

Patina Set

Rust Set

Velvet – Tuxedo

For your pleasure I have included a Snapguide tutorial below. Enjoy !
