Today is full of possibilities by Lisa

Hi friends! Lisa here today to show you my last art journal pages, made with beautiful Velvet paints & Colorations sprays by Art Anthology! This is my last post with AA design team, I felt very honored to be part of it in these six months and I thank those who believed in me and gave me this fabulous opportunity! I hope to have inspired you with my projects in these months, and this is another one just for you!

To start I brushed white gesso, then modelling paste through AA stencil and I let it dry.

After that I used Colorations sprays (Siesta Key, Plush and Glorious) on my background, with a brush and a little bit of water to blend the colors.

Then I used some stamps with archival inks.

So I glued some paper embellishments and I made splatters with Velvet Paint (DayGlow, Tuxedo and Cotton)

Here some close ups photos:

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!

Fairy Dust: Sterling

Stencils: Lotus 6×9, Twilight

Clear coat: Splashed

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.

I also have a process video which will be located at the end of the blog. So sit back, relax and let me show you how I created my layout xx.

  1. To begin with I applied a thin coat of clear gesso to my patterned paper. Why do I do this you may ask? It is to seal the paper so that I can add my mediums to the paper without it buckling. Once dry I then using AA’s stencil Keyhole and Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie.

2. After drying the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some clear crackle medium and dried again. I then sprayed the crackled area with water and using a paint brush I applied Siesta Key and Granny Smith Colorations Sprays.

3. I sprayed my flowers with water and then sprayed Colorations Spray – Sandcastle. I used my heat tool to dry the flowers.

4. I painted the flowers with Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent using a paint brush. I also painted my chipboard title with the same ink.

5. I then adhered all my pieces to the layout along with mini prillz and art stones. And finished the layout off with some stamping.

  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.

Mixed media layout on canvas

Hi friends!

Lisa today on the blog to share with you my newest mixed media layout on canvas, playing with my favorite AA stencil and paints!

To start I brushed a coat of white gesso on the canvas and I made stencils with Stone effect Bone.

I used the stone effect also on some paper diecuts.

I made stamps with archival black ink and then I diluted the Tuxedo Velvet with water and I used a brush to color my background.

I made splatters with Gold Metal Effect and a fan brush

I sprayed Siesta Coloration on my leaves, and I brushed Gold Metal Effect on the others

So I pasted all the embellishments with my photo on the canvas, and as final touch I made big splatters with Cotton Velvet.

Here some close ups:

I used these AA products:

Lotus Stencil 6×9

Bone Stone Effects

Siesta Key Colorations Spray

Cotton Velvet

Tuxedo Velvet

Gold Metal Effects

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!
