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 

Stencil-Fleur

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 !

Fall meet Winter canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with something different from what I’m usually creating… it’s a canvas, to show you that you can paint with gel mediums as well as if it’s was acrylic, even if like me you’re not a painter !

After covering my canvas with white gesso, I started by applying grey (I used 50 shades but you can use Pewter) and Silver Metal Effect all over the canvas, then adding touches of red Desire Velvet with a small brush, using something water to dilute the color.

Then I added touches of Gold Metal Effect, Tango Velvet and Portobello Velvet to create different shades of leaves.

The trees are drawn with Tuxedo Velvet medium, with brushes of Onyx Shine. Few more brushes of Cotton Velvet to powder the landscape and I was done.

You should give it a try, it’s fun to create a canvas without pressure (we are not looking to create a masterpiece after all), and I have a little video tutorial to help you start with blank canvas by showing you how I did this one :

Thank you for your time, I hope this post will give give you some inspiration to create a canvas of your own.

See you soon with another project !
