Altered Art Journal Cover by Toni

Hi everyone…. Toni here with a fun and easy way to spruce up your art journal cover using Art Anthology products. First prepping the surface with gesso then I adhered different elements to the cover, such as grungeboard letters and latex lace.  I decided to use “Anthology” as my title which I feel is perfect  Merriam Webster says:  anthology  noun an·​thol·​o·​gy  Definition of anthology  1a collection of selected literary pieces or passages or works of art or music. 

I used two different stencils (listed below) and Mud Texture Paste to give more yummy texture. Finished off with some Vintage Gold wax for highlights. Hope you enjoyed  and take one of your journals or album covers and give it a face lift. For your pleasure I have included a process video below. Happy creating ! xoxo Toni

AA Products used are :

Mud Texture Paste

Stencils-Chevron, Beehive

Colorations Sprays-Indigo, Granny Smith, Peacock Feathers, Siesta Key, Timeless

Sorbet-Glass

Apothecary of Creativity by Toni

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great month. Today I have a DT project inspired by our October moodboard.

I love recycling items and I usually keep empty paint containers just in case…. lol…So I wanted to use them to make a Halloween decoration to display on my table. The outside of the box was textured using Art Anthologys Rust and Patine Texture Sets. And the bottles were textured by running Stone Effects-Sandstone through a few of our stencils. All supplies will be listed below. I have prepared a video for you if you would like to view my creative process. Hope you get a few new techniques to use with your AA products. Happy creating xoxo Toni

Altered PaintBrush with Brandy!

Hello fans! I created this Altered PaintBrush for out monthly Color Challenge for October!
This months MoodBoard is awesome!

After a coat of gesso, I used my Mud and Lattice Stencil to lay down some texture. When it was dry I added sprays of Siesta Key Coloration Spray to give my brush that YUMMY Turquoise color.
I used my Copper Metal Effects   to color my chipboard flower gears. I also dry brushed my other chipboard pieces with Copper.
