Coloring Stamped Images with Karan

Hi Friends and welcome back today.  Its Karan hosting the blog here at Art Anthology.
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.

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

Butterfly effect : an altered mask

Hello !

Who says because Mardi Gras is behind us, we cannot play with masks anymore ? Certainly not me, as I love creating new ones ! So here is my project for today :

I used 3 different material for the gears : paper, grungeboard and metal. After adhering these gears to the mask, I used the Mud Texture paste and a stamp to create more texture around the gears, before applying white gesso all over it.

Once dried, I used the Rust Texture set to highlight the gears and give them more dimensions. Then I added the Waimea Bay Colorations spray because 1. I really like this color, 2. I cannot let this mask white… Bonus : this color really enhance the rusty look.

The video tutorial is available on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, or you can just watch it here :

Thank you for your time and for stopping by on the blog. See you soon for another project…
