Christmas Mixed-Media Tag

Hey everyone, Suzanne here today to share with you a fun Christmas mixed-media tag that I’ve created using an array of Art Anthology paints and mediums! I will show you how I made the dimensional trees!

When I began the base of the tag, I knew I wanted a “midnight” blue, therefore, I mixed two Velvets- “Beyond the Reef ” and Tuxedo. They blended and worked perfectly! Once the paint was dried, I stamped and heat embossed a text image and like that, the tag base was complete!

Using just a piece of scrap watercolor paper, I cut out triangles for Christmas trees. I mixed a small amount of Kelly Green Shine paint with artist modeling paste; the paste “dilutes” the color of the paint, so I added paint until I was happy with the color. Using a palette knife, I simply applied the mixture to the paper making “swooping” motions.

Before the mixture dried, I tucked in 3d-dimensional balls for ornaments.

Once the background of the tree was completely dry, I added color to the ornaments with a color from the Rust Texture Set, “Amber;” I also went back in with Kelly green to go over the tree once more to give it just a little more depth and color.

Next, I added snow paste to the tree and topped it off with a dusting of glitter! I let all of the medium dry and assembled the tag! Here are some closeups!

The star wreath is a paper die-cut that’s been painted using the Rust Texture Set!

Velvet: “Beyond the Reef, Tuxedo”

Mixed media tag by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa today on the blog to share with you my last mixed media big tag, playing with AA Stencil, Colorations sprays and stone effects!

To start I prepped my tag by brushing white gesso and then I used Bone stone effect through Lotus stencil. I let it dry and I made some stamps with black archival ink.

With a brush and a little bit of water I used some Colorations sprays until I was happy with the blend of colours.

I used Tuxedo Velvet paint with a little bit of water to make splatters on the background.

Then I used also Lava Stone Effects and Bone Stone Effects on some paper leaves to give them more texture!

When I glued all my embellishments down on tag I made big splatters of colors using Cotton Velvet Paint.

Here some close ups photos:

I used these products on my project:

Cotton Velvet

Tuxedo Velvet

Patience Colorations Spray

Barbie Colorations Spray

Lotus Stencil 6×9

One of a Kind Mixed Media Tag by Farrel Tailor

Hi there Art Anthology Fans!! Farrel here to share with you all a mixed media tag I created using lots of AA products. There is also a process video at the end of the blog so feel free to watch me in action.

  1. I started my tag by using Stone Effects – Bone with Art Nuveau stencil. After drying with my heat tool, I then added white gesso and also applied some crackled paste.

2. Once dry and all my elements on the tag have been adhered and covered with white gesso, I then applied Colorations Color Spray – Siesta Key. Next I used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panache on the background and used a little bit of water to help the ink spread around the tag.

 

3.  After the ink has dried, I then spray Colorations Color Spray Peacock Feathers to create some depth to the tag. To break up some of the blue on the tag, I then used Rust Texture Set on some of the elements on the tag.

 

4. After adhering my chipboard butterfly, I then added Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent. Then to finish off the tag, I added the gold paste from Rust Texture Set to highlight.

 

 AA products products used:

Stencil – Art Nuveau 

Colorations  – Siesta Key, Peacock Feathers

Stone Effects – Bone

Minx Shimmering Inks – Panache, Decadent

Texture Set – Rust

Happy Halloween Mixed-Media Tag

 

Hey everyone and Happy Halloween!  Suzanne here today to share with you a mixed-media Halloween tag!  I had loads of fun creating this tag using several of our Art Anthology paints and mediums!

I began with a manila tag that’s been primed using black gesso and covered with birch tree die-cuts.  At the bottom of the tag, I wet and bunched up plaster paper; I sped up drying with a heat gun then painted over the top with several tones of AA paints to give a muddy or dirty appearance.

 While the tag dried, I freehand cut “headstones” and  applied a coat of Stone Effects in Sandstone (I used a heat tool to dry).  I love how it actually feels rough and gritty like actual stone!  I layered a couple of layers of Silver Metal Effects on top of the Sandstone (drying between layers).

As seen on the finished tag, the bats have been painted using AA Sorbet in “Black Leather Jacket.”  In addition, I applied a top coat of AA Sorbet “Glass” to add even more of a glitter effect!

The chipboard stars are painted with AA Gold Metal Effects, and the trees are coated with a layer of AA Sorbet in “Dazzle.”

The die-cut pumpkin is painted with AA Velvet “Tango” then heat embossed with thick embossing powder.

It’s amazing what you can create with paper and your favorite Art Anthology Paints.  This tag was super fun to create, and would be a great Halloween craft for the kiddos!

Art Anthology Supplies:
Velvet “Tango”
Stone Effects “Sandstone”
Metal Effects “Silver, Gold”
Sorbet “Glass, Dazzle, Black Leather Jacket” 

Other Supplies:
manila tag
paper die-cuts
chipboard pieces
gesso

Halloween tags with Daniëlle

Hello there!

It’s Daniëlle and I am still in Halloween mode 😉

So here are some cool Halloween tags for you:

Want to know how I created them? It’s really not that hard! So here’s a quick photo step by step:

1: add color with colorations spray. I used Juicy and Steel (which is a greyish color). I also added minx ink Radiance for some shimmer.

2: For texture and more interest I added some Tuxedo velvet through the Cracked stencil.

3: I wanted my tags to be less bright so I added in some Raider colorations spray.

4: Next I found myself a piece of lace which I colored with the colors I used before. So Raider and Juicy colorations and Randiance minx.

5: To make a nice tag I went to look for some embellishments. Add everything together and you have two nice Halloween themed tags.

That’s all! I hope you liked it and I hope to see you here again next time!

3. Add some washi tapes and add texture by applying stone effects through a stencil.

Close up of the texture:

4. Find yourself some nice scrapbookpaper and cut some pieces. Distress the edges and with a sponge and sme colorations spray ink, add color to the distressed edges.  I did this with two different kinds of paper, for each tag.

5. Put everything together and add embellishments. Choose a composition you like. I don’t think about these things very much. I just have a look and do what I like most.

Your tags are done! Ready to be used as giftlabels for example.

From The Heart a Mixed Media Tag by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa today on the blog and I’d love to share with you this mixed media tag playing with a lot of Art Anthology products!

To start I glued some pieces of tissue paper and old book pages on my tag with gel medium.

Then I brushed white gesso

I chose AA Stencil ” Messy Bubbles” and I made some stencils with modelling white paste.

Then I made some stamps with Archival black ink and I colored the background with Patience and Plush Colorations Sprays, using a round brush and water to give a watercolor effect.

After that I took Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint and I made some splatters of colour with a fan brush.

I stamped some butterflies on a piece of watercolor paper and I colored them with Siesta Colorations Spray. Then I cutted them and I used as embellishments on my tag

I made some splatters again this time with Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint to give more contrast on the background

I finished my tag adding some diecuts, stickers and sequins. On the black heart I brushed a little of Dazzle Sorbet Paint…..I love its glitter effect!

Now some close ups photos

I used these AA products:

Patience Colorations Spray

Plush Colorations Spray

Siesta Key Colorations Spray

Messy Bubbles Stencil

Cotton Velvet 

Fiji Velvet

Dazzle Clear Coat

That’s all for today!

A little inspiration for you, from Daniëlle

Hi everyone!

Daniëlle here, just popping in, to give you some extra inspiration!

I created these two tags:

In the background I used a combination of colorations sprays (Sandcastle, Siësta Key and Sedona) with Minx shimmering inks (Decadent, Panache) over a layer of Mud and stencils.

To give them a vintage, aged look, I used the texture sets Rust and Patina. I love these sets to add texture and color to elements like the die-cuts on my tags.

All you have to do now is add a beautiful stamp and a text and you’re all done! I hope to inspire you with my project and please show us what you create!

Bye Bye!
