BE HAPPY TOGETHER

Good morning everyone. I am back with a colorful Travel Notebook Layout I created using a stencil and Coloration Spray (Salmon) from Art Anthology. I’ve been itching to buy new papers and stickers, but before I do… I am determined to use up my stash! So far, it’s working and it feels great to save a few dollars…and use up the products I have on my shelf.

 

I mixed the Salmon Coloration Spray with Molding paste to create a pink shade. Then I covered the stencil using the medium. It steeped under the stencil a bit because it wasn’t think enough…but that’s OK. I just wanted to add some texture to the layout so it was fine.

I added lots of embellishments at the bottom to complete the layout. Since the photo was my main focus, I kept the design pretty simple.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Here’s a process video!

Live Your Dream With Passion by Lisa

Hi AA friends!

Lisa today to share with you my last mixed media card, playing with AA Stencil, Colorations sprays and Velvet paints!

To start I cutted a piece of watercolor paper, I chose AA Stencil Lotus and I used it with a heavy gel for a thick texture.
After I used some text stamps with archival black ink.


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


After that I used Tuxedo Velvet Paint to made some ink splatters and I built my focal point with some butterflies cutted from scrapboook papers and others that I stamped on watercolor paper.

Here some close ups photos:

WINTER TIME

Happy New Year!! It’s hard to believe another year has passed. People have told me over the years… time flies, the older you get. They are so right! It’s scary how fast time flies. I’m going to have a 10 year old (double digits) next month. THAT’S SCARY!

My little man loves the snow. Last year we only got a few inches. Hopefully, this year we will get a little more so he can really enjoy it. Today, I’m sharing a layout I created using Coloration Sprays (Sky, Granny Smith, and Salmon) and the Meridian Stencil. I love these colors together.

To begin, I prepped the page with Clear Gesso. Once the gesso was completely dry, I placed the Meridian Stencil onto the cardstock and then sprayed about 12 inches above the stencil using the Granny Smith. When spraying multiple colors, I start with the lightest colors first and work my way up to the darker colors.

After spraying the Granny Smith, I carefully lifted the stencil and moved it to a different area on the cardstock and sprayed over the stencil using the Salmon Coloration Spray. I repeated the same process with the Sky Coloration Spray.

I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time. Once the ink was completely dry, I added my embellishments!

I used papers and embellishments from Studio Forty to design this layout. Love these chipboard pieces and the wooden enamel buttons.

I used an acrylic stamp to stamp the “Winter Time” title at the top of the layout and then I stamped “Joy” on one of the squares.

A Floral Jar

Hello, welcome to another tutorial. As some of you already know, I love repurposing common household objects and turning into works of art. I recently made this beautiful floral jar with tissue, clay flowers and Art Anthology Products and I loved it so much that I decided to do a video tutorial.

Floral Jar

I make my own clay flowers with Delight Clay™ and silicone molds, the kind you use for gum paste and fondant. I find this much cheaper as molds can be used over and over again. Also, the detail you get using the Delight Clay™ is amazing!

Below is a supply list and a video tutorial showing you how to make this jar. It actually would be a great gift for someone special.

Art Anthology Products used:

Salmon Colorations Spray
Sandcastle Colorations Spray
Flamingo Sorbet Dimensional Paint

Other products used are:
glass jar
gesso
tissue
clay flowers
collage paper
soft gel medium
white acrylic paint

Christmas Card inspiration with Daniëlle

Hi guys!

How are you doing? I have a quick inspirational post for you today. Every year I create some Christmas cards and this year I used an Art Anthology background for them.

I created the background using three colorations sprays colors, Minx inks and Fairy Dust with a stencil. As you can see I also added some background stamping, a different text for each card. I also added a layer of clear coat sterling through a stencil. Add a cute image and text and your cards are ready! I like my Christmas cards all shiny and sparkly so I use lots of Minx, Fairy Dust and clear coat. I also use pearlescent cardstock but that’s quite hard to photograph.

I hope to inspire you to create a quick little Christmas card yourself!

See you again soon!

Season’s Greeting Card by Farrel Tailor

Hi there AA fans, I am back with another project share and today I decided to create a Christmas card. I have to admit I am not a card maker but I had so much fun creating this one that I may have to create some more.

Season's Greetings Card by Farrel Tailor
  1. To start my card I used an old music sheet from my stash and sprayed all over using Colorations Spray – Warm. Once dry, I then tore to fit my card.

2. I inked the edges of my music sheet with Vintage Photo archival Ink and then stenciled the whole area of the sheet using AA’s Clear Coat Dimensional Medium – Splashed and Art Deco stencil.

Splashed Sorbet Dimensional Paint

3. Next I painted my Green Tara large Poinsetta flower with Gold Metal Effects medium using a paint brush. I applied 2 coats of this for complete coverage.

4. Next I used a paint brush to paint my chipboard flourishes using Minx Shimmering Ink. Make sure you give this a good shake to make sure all the shimmering goodness is throughout the ink.

Minx Shimmering ink - Decadent

5. Then all there is needs to be done is adhere everything to the card and I found some Christmas stamps in my stash which I used on some white card stock and used Vintage Photo archival Ink. The backing of the sentiment I used some glitter paper and adhere a piece of ribbon from my stash also.

DAYDREAMER Mixed Media Layout

Happy Friday! I have an adorable layout to share with you today. Isn’t my baby nephew the cutest? I can’t wait to snuggle him this weekend!

I kept this layout pretty simple, keeping the focus on the photo, using different shades of browns/cream.

To begin, I sprayed white cardstock using the Sandcastle Coloration Spray. I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time.

Then I grabbed the Sedona Coloration Spray to add some color to the layout. I sprayed the Coloration Spray onto plastic packaging and them placed it over the layout so I had more control of the ink.

I sprayed water on the packaging as well to help the ink blend easier.

I repeated the process a few times until I was satisfied with the background.

Once the background was completely dry, I added a few embellishments. I used the Rust Truffle Stone Effects and the Patina Copper Metal Effects to alter the veneer hearts.

Here is what they look like once covered with the mediums and when they are dry. Gorgeous! You can do this with chipboard too!

Here are a few close-ups of the layout.

Products Used:

Colorations Sprays: Sandcastle, Sedona

Rust Texture Set: Rust Truffle Stone Effects

Patina Texture Set: Patina Copper Metal Effects

Christmassy art journal page with Daniëlle

Hi there everyone!

I’m a big holiday season fan and I just love spending and enjoying time with my family during the holidays! So I was in a Christmassy (or messy LOL) mood when I created this art journal page!

Here’s a step by step tutorial so you can create one yourself:

1: I love to start with collage.

2: Next I added modelling paste through the Twilight stencil.

3: Adding color using colorations sprays clover and warm and a little bit of minx ink in color indulgence.

I also added some Fairy Dust in Gilded Gold for extra sparkle.

4: Next I added some scraps of paper.

5: In my last step I added some gold glitter washi tape and a text I like. Part of it I ‘wrote’ with Raider colorations spray and a brush, part are stickers and part are letter stamps.

That’s all, see you next time!
