Japanese style bookmarks

Hello crafters !

Valerie again with a project inspired by my recent visit to a bookstore, where I bought two Japanese books. I have a soft spot for the beauty and elegance of Japanese culture, and it inspire me to create these bookmarks :

I choose colors reminding me of the Land of the Rising Sun : Timeless, Juicy and Barbie for the Colorations sprays, and Coral for the Sorbet Dimensional paint.

I choose the Blocked stencil as a reminder of the square design in the stamp, and the Retro one because it looks like colorful sun on the bookmark.

You will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel.

Thank you for reading this post and see you soon for another project !

Mixed media bookmarks

Hello there !

Valerie here today to wish you an happy new year and to show you my new project with Art Anthology products !

Reading has always been important in my life, and I’m trying to pass the love of reading to my daughters. That’s what inspired me for my project : the love of reading !

Did you ever try the Art Anthology stencils ? I used one on this project, the Such A Drip stencil, with Velvet Dimensional paint in Mardi Gras color. Look at the incredible texture it makes !

The colorations sprays were handy too to create the background or color the heart stamp.

Mixed media Christmas card

Oh man ! Christmas is close by ! Have you sent your Christmas card already ? If you need an handmade card in a snap, I (Valerie) have the right project for you !

All you will need is white cardstock, some ribbon and of course Art Anthology products ! Gold, brick, clear coat, green spray and stencil… You will find the exact list at the end of this post.

Let’s see some close-ups to have a better look at the dimensions of this Christmas card…

As you can see there is 3 different layers of paints in this project : first Colorations spray with stencil, then gilded clear coat and brick stone effect for the sentiment.

Look at the creamy texture of the Gold Metal effect paint on the edge of the card ! That makes 4 differents textures in one card !

You will find the complete tutorial to create this card on the Art Anthology YouTube channel. It’s quick and easy :

Playing with Minx shimmering inks!

Hi, Ellie Knol again, and you may have noticed that the Design Team of Art Anthology is featuring the Minx shimmering inks lately.

So, I will be featuring them today as well.
They are great to make backgrounds for cards or maybe for an art journal page (or a canvas, or a watercolor painting etc etc).
For now : 4 different ways to use the inks.
.. .. I hope to do some more in near future!

I’ve used the same colors for all 4 techniques.

For step-by-steps of all 4 techniques,
please see the Snapguide at the end of this post!

The Minx bottles were in good use in this project for the background, in Allure and Indulgence. The Raider Colorations Spray was handy too to pop up the crackles…

Another close-up :

I used black gesso under the sentiment to give another dimension to the ATC.

Create 12×12 backgrounds with Colorations, stencils and sorbet

Hi, Ellie Knol here again today!

See what magic you can create by just playing with the products from Art Anthology!!

Today I’ll take you through the steps of creating a 12×12 background with sorbets, Colorations ink sprays, stencils, texture paste and gesso. It can be cut up to smaller pieces for cards, ATC’s or maybe a board for home-decorating.

art-anthology-terragroen-masterboard-background-cat-collage-ellie-knol-25The card above has been created from an A6 part of the background.

I LOVE the structure from the stencils and texture paste, and the depth the sprayinks give. art-anthology-terragroen-masterboard-background-cat-collage-ellie-knol-23
