Altered PaintBrush with Brandy!

Hello fans! I created this Altered PaintBrush for out monthly Color Challenge for October!
This months MoodBoard is awesome!

After a coat of gesso, I used my Mud and Lattice Stencil to lay down some texture. When it was dry I added sprays of Siesta Key Coloration Spray to give my brush that YUMMY Turquoise color.
I used my Copper Metal Effects   to color my chipboard flower gears. I also dry brushed my other chipboard pieces with Copper.

Halloween ATC

Hello there !

October is going so fast ! I’m way behind for my Halloween decorations but I managed to create something for the blog before being buried in spider web… Take a look at my Halloween ATC !

I started on white cardtock with Colorations sprays in Juicy and Timeless before playing with the Wheel stencil using a baby wipe and a purple pen.

After stamping some Halloween designs in black ink on the ATCs, I stamped the 31 frame on white cardstock and painted it with Fiji Velvet medium. I also cut small stripes of paper, painted them with the same color, and write on it for the sentiment.

I almost forgot ! I used one of the stencil of the Argyle stack with Fiji Velvet on these ATCs…

It is obvious that I was inspired by the October moodboard for this project…

Want to know more about my creative process ? Take a look at my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel :

Thank you for your time and see you soon for another project !

Vintage Jack-O-Lantern by Toni

Happy October everyone! For my DT project I decided to create something fun to place on my table for Halloween. It’s whimsical and I used several of AA’s great products. Hope you are inspired.A paper mache ball and cone was transformed into “Jack” O Lantern, all ready for the upcoming festivities. He’s got his party hat on and he’s ready to have fun !  Jack’s head was given texture with Mud Paste and also Terracotta from the Rust Set. 

The fringe around his hat and neck were created with crepe paper stained with Colorations in Juicy, Raider and Plush. Collage paper for his body was made of tissue paper that was coffee stained and then stenciled with Sorbet-Imperial.

Hope you enjoyed and I have a YOUTUBE video for you to watch the creative process if you desire. Have a spook-tacular month !

Art journaling with Hexi stencil stack

Hello !

Have you ever tried to use all the stencils from the same stack at once ? That’s what my project is all about today ! Let’s see how I used the Hexi stencil stack

It’s not THE way of using it, just A way to do so, because you could use them separately or together, aligned or not… I decided to align them for this project, each one with a different medium. I started with the medium Hexi and Glorious Colorations spray, followed by the hollowed Hexi and Tango Velvet, and then the larger Hexi with Dazzle Clear Coat.

Once each coat was dried, I added some Waimea Bay Colorations spray and wipe the excess from the Hexi pattern. You can see that the blue did not go on the Hexi pattern thanks to the clear coat.

A bit of chevron stamp, black alpha stickers, some black on the edges and my journal pages were done !

You can follow my creative process through my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel (as many of our DT videos…) :

Thank you for your time, I hope this tutorial will help you use the stencil stacks more often !

Have a great day…
