Folk style Art Journal pages

Hello !

Valerie here with an another colorful art journal spread filled with Art Anthology mediums !

I started with a light background of Avocado Colorations spray, followed by stamp and Clover Colrations spray

This folk beauty is stamped on tissue paper and colored with markers, as well as the flowers on this journal ! I used the Glass Sorbet to adhere and protect it from smearing.

Before adhering the tissue paper, I used the Scales stencils in size 8×12 and 6×9 with Limeaid Velvet medium. I outlined the designs with a black pen to make it pop…

I f you would like to know more about my creative process, just watch the video tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today and see you soon for another project !

Coloring Stamped Images with Karan

I love the mediums they have and always wanted to use them on my Heartfelt Creations stamped flowers and leaves, so i set out to do that for this project.
Using water color paper, here is what i came up with for todays project.

 

what a great way to color stamped leaves and flowers and its so quick too.
Just by brushing over y stamped images with the colorations spray makes it pretty quick and easy too.

Rusty ATC’s w/ Brandy

Hi there Art Anthology Fans!! Boy, this month is flying by, isn’t it??
Though my project today is tiny, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in WOW!

I’m so impressed with these new collections! They are just so easy to use.

 I like to apply a base coat color and put the other two color mediums mostly on the textured areas. Let them dry between coats…but you can use your heat tool for speed. 🙂

Find this Rust Collection Texture Set ans so many more awesome products in the ART Anthology online store!!

Here is a video of my process!

I hope I’ve inspired you to grab yourself some plain and boring and rust it up!!


Thanks for stopping by today!!

Altered tissue box

Hello !

Valerie there today with another altered project ! I moved recently and found a sad wood tissue box in one of my cabinet ready to be upgraded ! Look at the result first :

The box was covered in lace, with lot of embellishments like flowers, buttons, pearls, stones, and chipboards on the top, then covered with white gesso before adding some colors…

I used two type of mediums in this project : Colorations sprays and Sorbet mediums. The Colorations sprays are Siesta Key and Peacock Feathers.

I used the Sorbet dimensional mediums in Cayman, Mermaid and Vegas Gold as touch ups with a small brush.

Love this color gradient ! It’s soft and vibrant at the same time !

If you would like to know more about my creative process in this project, you can watch the video tutorial here (but it’s also on the Art Anthology YouTube channel with a lot of others projects !) :

Thank you for stopping by ! Hope to see you very soon with another tutorial…

Have a great day !

Altered Box For Home Decor by Toni

Toni here today to share with you an altered project I created to hold my essential oils I use to diffuse at home.Started with this paper mache box I purchased awhile back at Michaels. Starting off with AA’s Mud Paste run through a couple of a gorgeous stencils (listed below) for texture to the box. Then the addition of a few metal pieces. Then I took some white mulberry flowers and painted them in the colors above and dipped them in melted UTEE to give them a porcelain effect. Before adhering to the box I spritzed Colorations Sedona & Granny Smith on the top for shadows and a pretty shimmer.

Pictured above the pretty texture provided by the stencils. Florals were added to the top and my title to the front of the box and now my essential oils have a new home. Hope this has provided some inspiration to decorate your containers for your home. Put that special “YOU” touch on your items.

Below is a list of AA products used and also a Snapguide tutorial for your pleasure….. Peace

Mud Paste

Metal Effects-Copper

Colorations – Sedona, Granny Smith

Velvet-Rose, Taxi Cab, Orchid, Reef
