Using Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology to create a camo canvas with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I want to share a new canvas with you. I used the Colorations Sprays to create a camo looking background and I love it 🙂

I used parts of the Lotus Stencil for the focal point in the background and to add some extra texture. By using the Minx inks to outline the Lotus flower it now looks like its shining even brighter.

I always like to add hidden interest to a project. The Dazzle paint is perfect for that as it dries clear and just leaves this amazing sparkle.

But now to the process. Here is my video that is showing how I put everything together. Enjoy 🙂

These are the supplies I used:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little canvas 🙂

Nature Is But A Canvas To The Imagination

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

The following Art Anthology products were used:

Velvet – Tuxedo

Colorations Sprays-Juicy, Warm, Timeless, Clover, Plush

Halloween Canvas

Ooozing eyeballs Halloween canvas with Josefine

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.

Thanks for stopping by!

September MoodBoard Challenge W/ Brandy

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.

Check out How to Create a Stunning Decorative Art Canvas W/ Brandy by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Art Anthology products are just a click away! Find the products I used today and many more at the Art Anthology Online Store!

Adorable altered canvas with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!

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:

 Aloha Velvet

Tink Sorbet

 Sunshine Sorbet

Orchid Velvet
