Magic Moments..A Colorful Canvas by Jenn

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Jenn here with you today to share this fun little colorful canvas using lots of Art Anthology products!
Colorations SpraysSedona, Plush
Minx Shimmering Inks Panache
Shine Dimensional Paints Onyx, Teal
Metal Effects Dimensional mediums Silver
Velvet Dimensional Paints Boysenberry
StencilArt Deco

This is a 5 X 7 Canvas. I have coated it with white gesso and allowed it to dry completely before adding any mediums.
The first step was adding some fun texture by applying crackle paste through the AA Art Deco Stencil.

Next, after adhering a frame and molded border,  sprays of AA Colorations in Sedona along with spritzes of water were added. Let dry completely.

Add the remaining embellishments. This includes molded, florals, papers, chippies, etc.

Add splatters of AA Shine in teal mixed with water and let dry or dry with a heat tool. Add more color splattering using the remaining AA mediums listed. Be sure to dry n between.

Mixed media reverse canvas

Hi friends!

Lisa today with you to share my last mixed media project! I love playing with gesso, stencils and painting and this time I have a reverse canvas for you!

To start I brushed several coats of white gesso on the reverse side of a canvas. After that I glued some pieces of tissue paper with a gel medium.

Then I chose Lotus Stencil to make some design with Stone Effects Bone, and I brushed also this paint here and there to give more texture.

I made some stamps with black archival ink, and then I started coloring the background with a light blend of Siesta Colorations spray first, to follow with Peacock Feathers.

While it was drying I colored a chipboard with the color Velvet Fiji and later I got dirty it with a little bit of white gesso.

So I glued all my embellishments with tacky glue and I made big splatters with Velvet Cotton color.

Some close ups photos:

I used these AA products:

Lotus Stencil 6×9

Bone Stone Effects

Siesta Key Colorations Spray

Peacock Feathers Colorations Spray

Fiji Velvet

Cotton Velvet

That’s all for today!

I hope you enjoyed my mixed media reverse canvas with Art Anthology products!  For more ideas visit us on Pinterest and also join 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:

Mixed Media Wooden Tag by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a heartfelt project, dedicated to a very dear friend that I lost almost 2 years ago. The image on the front of this tag was actually the last card I received from her for my birthday. I thought this would be a nice way to keep this treasure. This wooden tag was primed first with white gesso and then collaged with book pages and scrapbook paper. Then I applied black modeling paste through one of Art Anthology’s NEW stencils Multi Damask. Then with the help from Art Anthology’s Rust and Patina Texture Set I was able to alter the heart and edges of the tag. Colorations Sprays were used to dye the seam binding at the top of the tag. For your pleasure I have included a process video and there is also a list of supplies used below. Wishing you a bright and peaceful day !

Supplies Used:

Colorations; Warm, Peacock Feathers, Siesta Key

Rust Texture Set

Patina Texture Set

Stencil-Multi Damask

For your pleasure here is a video of my creative process… xoxo Toni

Mixed Media Flower Canvas by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here and I’m having so much fun with some of Art Anthology’s NEW products… Have you checked out the store… WOW so many beautiful NEW stencils and so many gorgeous NEW colors of dimensional paints. I used the new Double Flower Stencil for this canvas. Prepped the canvas first with crackle medium and allowed it to dry. Then I created my flowers using a different method of appying the paint to the stencils. Instead of adding the medium and then swiping the excess, I applied the paints like frosting a cake and left it thick…. check out my video below for more details. Applying it this way provided a wonderful dimensional texture. And it’s so easy with Art Anthology’s gel based paints. Once the flowers were dry, I fussy cut all of them and adhered them to the canvas and highlighted the shadow areas with Minx Shimmering Inks. Finishing off the canvas with a dry brushing of Amber Sorbet (from the rust set). Hope you give this technique a try, so much fun experimenting with mixed media. Wishing you a day filled with love & peace.

For your pleasure I have included a video to share my creative process. xoxo Toni

Sculpted Flowers and Altered Frame by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here and let’s do some sculpting today with some very old flowers. I used Art Basic Sculpture Medium and soaked my flowers and allowed to dry overnight, then primed them with gesso. Next I sprayed each flower with different colors of Colorations Sprays. The butterflies were die cut with grunge paper and embossed and then acetate was also die cut and painted with the some gorgeous sorbet paints for a 3D effect. On the frame I used Clear Coat Glass and ran it through our stencil, dried completely then sprayed for an antique look with Colorations-Warm.  Fun and easy project, something a little different. Go grab some of those old flowers that you haven’t used forever and give them some new life.   For your pleasure I have also included a process video below of my creative process. xoxo Toni

Supplies used:

Colorations: Timeless, Glorious, Plush, Juicy, Patience, Barbie, Warm

Clear Coat-Glass

Sorbet-Bella Boo, Seaweed, Sea Serpent, Flamingo, Sunrise, Summer

Mixed Media Jewelry Christmas Tree by Toni

Merry Christmas everyone, today it’s my turn up on the blog with a new project for Art Anthology. I decided to recycle some old jewelry that I had in my stash and alter it into a Christmas tree decor piece. I used the backside of the canvas for the base of the project and started adding my pieces of jewelry in a shape of a tree, then primed the surface with white gesso. Then I started adding my pretty Coloration sprays and Minx Shimmering Inks.  For more added texture, I also added Mud Paste with art stones to the back of the tree. The outside frame was embellished using AA’s Ringlet stencil as well as Sorbet paints. All the products for AA used are listed below as well as a process video for your pleasure. Hope you have been inspired. Have a magical Christmas season !
