Inspired by our beautiful mood board this month I decided to play with some leaves, twigs and dried flowers.
This is one of my most favorite times of the year. There is a brisk coolness in the air and I love all the beautiful deep changing colors. While cleaning up the yard I came across some gorgeous leaves and I thought they would assist beautifully in a fall canvas. I began by adhering my leaves and foliage to the canvas using matt gel and then gave it a nice coat of clear gesso in order to prime the surface for my mediums. The translucency of Art Anthology’s sprays are gorgeous and allowed the leaves to show through on the canvas while still enhancing the background with their vivid colors. Natural wood pieces were used for the base for the title “Mother Nature has the best box of crayons” which I felt was appropriate for this piece. Hope you were inspired and I encourage you to get creative with our mood board this month. Don’t forget to post your project so we can all enjoy and be inspired by you as well HERE. For your please, grab a cup of tea and enjoy my Snapguide tutorial below. Creatively yours, Toni
Daniëlle here with a 3D mixed media canvas for you to see today! Something a little different than art journaling but I also love to create these 3D, full of texture, canvases. Today I have a canvas with a photoframe for you to see.
You can create along with me using the snapguide tutorial I created.
Hello Art Anthology fans, Marleen here with some news.
Next Tuesday the 24th of October 8PM CET(2PM NY, 11AM Cali) time I will go LIVE via the Art Anthology Facebook page!
I’m going to create a messy mini canvas with products from Art Anthology, Unity Stamp Company and Spellbinders dies from Seth Apter.
I hope you all will be there!!
How about a mixed media Halloween canvas with oozing eyeballs and poison paste? Art Anthology products are perfect for drippy backgrounds and thick texture alike. And it’s still enough time to create some more spooky things – despite all the Christmas decoration that is already up in my grocery store.
I’m a fan of these smaller, card sized projects and love to decorate a canvas like that. The smaller area makes it easier to get started, but also challenges you to “organize” your space better. So let me show you what I did with this little canvas.
And? Oozing enough? 😛
I’m impressed with the stone effect paste. Even though I mixed with one of the Sorbet’s it dried in a neat texture.
Hello Fans! Brandy here again to share my Art Anthology Mood Board Challenge project!! Look at the Art Anthology Adventures page on Facebook for all the gorgeous colors and inspiring images each month brings!
I choose to use Lagoon Velvet, Mardi Gras Velvet, and Amber Gemstone Mediums! Boy, they are beautiful together!
One of the things I love most about AA paints is their thick, luscious consistancy! You can add a little water and they take on a whole new effect! Even then, you can still add this mix in layers to get the exact color and dimension.
Irit is here today and I welcome to my second September Art Anthology Inspiration.
After doing a lot of pretty dark art work I decided to try the bright one and I made this adorable canvas using my dear lovely granddaughter photos.
I left it in a pretty minimalistic style as I wanted the photos to shine and the Art Anthology background to be seen and not covered with tons of embellishments. So I just used the Dusty Attic chipboards to connect all canvas pieces and added some flowers for this girly canvas.
All flowers were originally white and I made them colorful with a mix of Art Anthology Colorations only and a bit of white gesso at the end.
All paint splashes were made with a dry paint brush and a bit of Art Anthology paints on it.
As you can see I added some micro beads and larger seed beads over the canvas for more interest.
And as always- here is my full step by step Snapguide tutorial:
