Hello! canvas created by Daniëlle

Hi!

Daniëlle here to show you a canvas I created with my art anthology products!

I started with lots of texture by using stencils and modeling paste (for example Art Anthology mud) which I then sprayed with my colorations sprays.\

I looked for some chipboard pieces and colored them with the same sprays and my metal effects, sorbet and velvet mediums.

Take a photograph, add all the pieces to your canvas, add some pretty embellishments and you’re all ready to go!

List of products I used:

Stencils: Scales, Fragments, Keyhole, Lotus. 

Colorations: Clover, Timeless, Sedona, Raider.

Velvet: Lagoon

Sorbet: Vegas Gold

Metal effects: Bronze

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….

Mixed media canvas about Maths…

Happy New Year from Valerie !

There is no reason to create less than in 2017, right ? I hope you start this new year with alot of projects in mind, and I hope I will help you in your creativity with my new project inspired by the January moodboard…

That was a lot of work but I am so pleased with the result ! I wanted to create a canvas to celebrate Maths and found a quote from Albert Einstein : “Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” I had my title !

I used three different stencils, two from the Off the Grid stack, and the Blocked stencil. You will also find some Mud texture paste and Plush Colorations spray.

And I did play with Velvet and Sorbet mediums : Orchid, Mayan gold, Purple Rain, Mardi Gras and Dragon Fruit.

Maths are so important in the progress of the human kind… In fact, they are present everywhere, especially in art ! I think this piece could be a perfect gift for a Maths teatcher… Never too early to think about end-of-the-school-year gift or even a dad’s day gift ?

You can watch my video tutorial to see my creative process right here :

And if you need another push to creativity, here is the moodboard to help you start with colors…

Once again happy new year, and see you soon for another mixed media project…

“Always Believe” by Toni

What a magical time of year Christmas is, filled with hope, joy and love. But for many it is a difficult time because of loss of loved ones, jobs, health and other events that happen in life.  My prayer is that my canvas today can bring  merriment to your day and inspire you. Being inspired by our December mood board was not difficult, such pretty vibrant colors. 

I started by adhering different laces to my canvas and giving it a nice coat of gesso to prep for my paint and sprays. Using 2″x 2″ canvases to create my Christmas tree, I first applied scrapbook papers and then for texture and interest used our Twilight stencil to add stars to the top.  Christmas sprigs and pods were added to the sides and prepped with gesso then sprayed with gorgeous Colorations Sprays in Peacock Feathers and Sky.

Homemade snow was made by mixing equal parts of Sorbet Linen, baking soda and school glue, while still wet Diamond Dust glitter was sprinkled on top. Christmas berries were glued into place, a red bow was placed on top of the tree and my title was edged with Peacock Feather spray. More Linen was dabbed here and there and then Diamond Dust glitter was added for a holiday sparkle. Wishing you a time of Peace and Comfort…. xoxo Toni

The following Art Anthology products were used:

Coloration Sprays – Peacock Feathers, Sky 

Sorbet  – Linen

Stencil –Twilight

Mud Texture Paste

Holiday Mixed Media Canvas with Brandy

Hi fans! Brandy here to share a canvas I created using our beautiful Color Challenge Board!
I hope you decide to play along with us! AND if you do, stop by our Facebook group page Art Anthology Adventures in Art and share it with us! 🙂

For awesome texture, this time I used the Fragments and Lotus Stencils and my Art Anthology Mud.
I chose the always gorgeous Sky Colorations spray to start the color for my canvas. I love how this spray gets a little darker with each layer you add…giving you the perfect opportunity to get just what shade you want!

My Desire Velvet Medium added just the right amount of festive color.  To make it all shine, I added a coat of Splashed Clear Coat for some pretty sparkle.

Here’s a video tutorial so you can see how to make your own!

Beautiful Art Canvas w/ Brandy

Hi, Fans!! Brandy here with a quick share of a project!

After being inspired by a friend, I thought I’d try using an old paintbrush as the focal point of an art canvas! I kinda love how this brush was used a time or two by myself, then returned to a beautiful piece of art afterward! Just some twine, a coat of gesso, some crackle paste and some of my SKY Colorations spray. 🙂

Of course, the paintbrush wouldn’t look as good as it does without a gorgeous background made up of a few more Art Anthology goodness! I started by adding texture with some Mud and my Lotus and Blocked stencils. Next, I adorned them with Colorations Sprays in Sky, Warm, and Steel.

The metal butterfly helped me choose a few rust colored accents for adorning.

In, the end I found a spectacular title sticker that suited this old brush perfectly.
“She was herself again”.
