Be Kind to Yourself Art Journal page by Lisa

Hi AA friends! Lisa today to share with you my last art journal spread, using AA Stencil, Colorations sprays and AA paints!

To start I prepped my page by brushing white gesso. Then I chose AA Flity Stencil and I used it with versamark pad and white embossing powder. With a brush and a little bit of water I used Colorations sprays (Salmon, Barbie and Glorious) until I was happy with the blend of colours.

After that I made some stamps with Archival ink pads and I glued some pieces of tissue paper. I used Sorbet Flamingo and Sorbet Black Leather Jacket to made some ink splatters

I glued some embellishments and I made other splatters with Velvet Beyond the Reef.

Here some close ups photos:

Cheese Mixed Media Layout for Beginners

Hi everyone. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout for beginners. I LOVE the Colorations Sprays in the shop and I just want to use them all…all the time. The colors are so vibrant! For this layout, I used six different colors.

Using a paint brush, I brushed the Colorations Sprays onto the cardstock that was initially white with writing. The colors used on this layout include: Granny Smith, Ink Spot, Salmon, Glorious, Plush and Juicy.

I decided to use a variety of Colorations Sprays to create a fun, happy layout and this layout just feels happy to me when I look at it. We had such a great time that day.

I used the Lattice Stencil to create splashes below the matted photos with a palette knife and Velvet Cotton.

I embellished the layout using stickers and chipboard from my stash. It feels good to use up those un-touched embellishments that have been sitting for some time.

Thanks so much for visiting today! What’s your favorite color or colors from our Colorations Sprays?

Products Used:

Colorations Sprays: Granny, Ink Spot, Salmon, Glorious, Plush, Juicy

Stencil: Lattice

Velvet: Cotton

I hope I inspired you to create a fun mixed media layout using Colorations Sprays and stencils! For more ideas visit us on Pinterest and also join our Facebook group, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

Altered Notebook by Farrel Tailor

Hi there AA Fans, Farrel here again to share another DT project and today I am sharing my altered notebook. If you would like to watch me create this please click on the video at the end of the blog xx

  1. To start I covered my notebook with tissue paper and then covered with black gesso. I also applied a coat of black gesso to my chipboard pieces and resin.

 

2. Once everything was adhered, I then used the dry brushing technique using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint all over.

3. After drying I then sprays Patience Colorations Spray all over. Then dry brushed Boysenberry Velvet Dimensional Paint to the chipboard and resin pieces.

  

4. Then after a quick dry, I applied Teal Shine Dimensional Paint. Once I was happy with the blend of colours, I then used a gold mousse to highlight all over the notebook.

5. I added some glass glitter and then applied Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint. I found that the notebook needed a little more “pop” and once I added this, I was happy.

This is the list of products that I used:

Velvet: Fiji, Cotton, Boysenberry

Colorations: Patience

Shine: Teal

Thanks for dropping and can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon xx

Stay Strong Art Journal Layout by Jenn DuBell

Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing with you a layout in my art journal using Art Anthology sprays and mediums!

I find art journaling to be one of the most relaxing art forms. Whenever I feel like my “creative mojo” is lost, I just sit down with some paper scraps, sprays, mediums, stamps and stencils along with an art journal and let my mind do the work! This page came from one of these times.

I love the different effects that you can achieve using Art Anthology products. I have used many in this layout.

AA Velvets – Fiji, Cotton, Boysenberry, Dayglow Yellow
AA Shines – Grape, Azalea, Canary
AA Colorations – Patience, Juicy, Siesta Key
AA Stencils – Bits of Grunge, Blocked, Dot matrix
Additional items used:
White and clear Gesso
Clear embossing powder
Black Archival Ink
Stamps
printed napkins

After coating my pages with clear gesso, I added spritzes of Colorations sprays in Patience. I added spritzes of water and allowed it to run a bit as well as using a brush to pick up excess and swipe along edges.


Next, I used my fingers and a brush to smear some AA Velvet in Dayglow Yellow mixed with a small amount of water.

Next I mixed AA velvets in Fiji and Cotton with a bit of white gesso to achieve the aqua color seen. I used the Cotton through a script stencil and the mixed color with the AA Dot Matrix stencil. I used the reverse side of the stencil to use the excess paint by rubbing onto areas of my pages.

Next I added some random stamping and more stenciling. Using a soft gel medium, I applied a torn bit of a napkin (Jane Davenport) for the faces.

Finally I added lots of AA colors to my stamping along with more stenciling for my final result! I added a bit more hair by blending AA mediums in yellows and oranges. They blend very well against the napkin edge!

Thanks so much for visiting and viewing my post today. I hope that you are inspired to get crafty and creative! All products used here and many others are available online at the link below!

Watercolor Scrapbook Layout using Colorations Sprays

Sometimes, less really is more!  Hey everyone, Suzanne here today to share with you a layout that uses that very concept!  I created the background of this super simple and easy layout with Colorations Sprays used as watercolors!   This background is so simple to recreate, if you blink you’ll miss just how easy it is to make!

I started this layout with. a piece of white die-cut cardstock waste that was left over from another project.

To ensure that when the Colorations sprays are applied and not absorbed into the paper, I prime the paper with a layer of gesso.

Once the gesso is completely dried, I grab a couple of Colorations Sprays and a paintbrush.

I sprayed each spray into a paint palette with a little water to extend the color and to help with achieving the watercolor effect I was after.

I applied the color by wetting the paintbrush with water first-then with the lightest of the two Coloration sprays; you can see that the area I missed applying gesso is a little darker because the ink absorbed immediately which makes it no longer workable.  I continue to apply the colors from lightest to darkest-drying between layers-until I’m satisfied with the application.

From the finished page, you can see how the mists take on a light, watercolor effect!  I dry the page, back it onto another piece of white cardstock, and finish the final assembly of the layout!

I love how the sprays add just enough color to the backdrop of the page!

Art Anthology Supplies:
Colorations Sprays: “Siesta Key, Sky”

Mixed media layout with Colorations Sprays by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa here today to share with you my last DT project for this month. This time I made a mixed media layout with some photos of my family that I particularly love… do you like to make layouts? I like it very much!

I started my layout with applying a coat of clear gesso to seal the patterned paper. I then used my finger to rub a little bit of white gesso. I made some stamps with Archival black ink and then I used modelling paste with Art Anthology Messy Bubbles stencil to create some texture

I used Colorations Sprays (Siesta Key, Barbie and Plush) to make my watercolor background. To cover the dreamcatcher chipboard I brushed Stone Effect color Bone, I love its texture!

I added my black and white photos with chipboards, embellishments and flowers

As final touch I made some splatters with Cotton Velvet with a bit of water

You can follow my step by step tutorial here

Supplies used:

Colorations Barbie, Plush and Siesta Key

Stone Effects Bone

Stencil Messy Bubbles

Speak your truth – art journaling with Daniëlle

Hi guys!

How’s everyone doing? Summer break is over here in my region and I’m going back to work this week. So I’m carefully planning my creative me-time, because I need it!

I made you an art journal page this time.

If you want to create this too, you can follow my steps:

  1. Add velvet to your page with a paintbrush.

2. Using a babywipe and a stencil, wipe off some velvet to create an interesting background effect.

3. Add some background stamps

4. Add some extra colorand texture by applying the same velvet through the same stencil, only this time using a pallette knife.

5. Add some stone effects elements to your page.

6. While your background is drying, stamp and color an image. I use my colorations sprays as a watercolor for this step.

7. Take out your patina set and create a textured embellishment for your page.

8. Now put everything together and finish your page with a text stamp.

Here are some close ups for you:

 

This is the list of products that I used:

Velvet: Fiji

Stencils: Luna, Bits of grunge

Colorations: Sedona, Sandcastle, Siesta key

Stone effects: Sandstone

Texture set: Patina

That’s it for today, hope to see you again soon!

Nemo the Cat on Vinyl

Hi Art Anthology fans, I am back with my second project as an Art Anthology Dream-team member. This time I made a layout on an old record and used a picture of our cat Nemo.

Made this as a present for my daughter who misses the cat since she moved out to go study in Belgium.

Because the record has an interesting structure a bit of stenciling was enough for a background, I choose the stone effect dimensional medium Sandstone, because the color looked nice with the colors of the cat.

Don’t you just love the effect in combination with the Gothic stencil?

The colors of the Sorbet dimensional paint and the Colorations spray are also based on the colors I have in my picture. I really love the coloring part of mixed media altered. Sometimes you have a carnival of colors, then after gesso it is a bit boring. Adding the colors is bringing a composition to live I think.

I made you a video of the process:

List of supplies:

Stencil: Gothic

Colorations sprays: Indigo, Peacock Feather, Juicy.

Sorbet Dimensional Paint: Mermaid, Walnut, Kenyan Copper and Vegas Gold.

Stone effect : Sandstone

 

I really hope I could inspire you to create with Art Anthology products. We would love to see what you make with them in our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art.

Colorations Sprays Rainbow Stenciled Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone!  Suzanne here today to share with you a vibrant and colorful rainbow layout courtesy of Art Anthology Colorations Sprays and Stencils!   This layout is much simpler than I’m accustomed to creating, but I love that the Colorations Sprays lend so much of a colorful punch that simple is all that’s needed!

I begin the layout by centering  the Wheel Stencil onto a piece of a white cardstock. Using an array of Art Anthology Colorations Sprays, start misting the colors in sections onto the stencil.

Take note to spray complimentary colors next to each other. If the colors bleed, it’ll add a new color which contributes to the rainbow effect!

Once all sprays have been applied, Lift the stencil up and away from the page. Tip: to prevent over spray, simply mask off the edges of the stencil with scrap paper; a good way to “clean” the stencil is to to sandwich between pages in your art journal or pick up the color with tags!

While the mists are drying, it’s time to add a little embellishing with the Industrial Stencil. Although Art Anthology mists and paints work beautifully with the stencils, I opted to use a permanent marker!  I am an amazingly messy scrapper, but with this particular application, I wanted to be just a tad neater.

On a separate piece of cardstock, simply use a broad-tip permanent marker to “color in” the edge of the design of the Industrial stencil-cut the design from the cardstock to use as a design element!

All that’s left to do is to assemble the layout with patterned paper, flower embellishments, and to splatter coordinating colors on the wheel for a little added detail and interest!

Needless to say, I LOVE these sprays!  They have been a joy to work with, and I am certain they will be called upon often in my crafty adventures! Here’s a list of the Colorations Sprays and Stencils used to create this layout.

Supplies:
Colorations: Barbie, Glorious, Siesta Key, Patience, Sky, Granny Smith
Stencils: Industrial, Wheel

Mixed Media Beach Board by Toni

Hi everyone… hope you are all having a nice month of August. Today I have for you a clip board I purchased from the dollar store and I transformed it into a beachy layout, featuring my daughter and my niece about 25 years ago… Hope you enjoy. I started by adding some wood grain paper and then priming the surface for my sprays and paints. Using some drift wood from the beach, twigs from my yard, fishnet, and paper clay elements provided lots of yummy texture. Applying my Colorations Sprays and Minx Shimmering Inks really brought this to life. All of the supplies used will be listed below. Take the unexpected and turn it into a keepsake to hold your memories. I hope you will give this a try. I also have a process video below for your viewing. Wishing you a day filled with peace & love…. hugs
