Minx Shimmering Inks Panache
Shine Dimensional Paints Onyx, Teal
Metal Effects Dimensional mediums Silver
Velvet Dimensional Paints Boysenberry
StencilArt Deco

This is a 5 X 7 Canvas. I have coated it with white gesso and allowed it to dry completely before adding any mediums.
The first step was adding some fun texture by applying crackle paste through the AA Art Deco Stencil.

Next, after adhering a frame and molded border,  sprays of AA Colorations in Sedona along with spritzes of water were added. Let dry completely.

Add the remaining embellishments. This includes molded, florals, papers, chippies, etc.

Add splatters of AA Shine in teal mixed with water and let dry or dry with a heat tool. Add more color splattering using the remaining AA mediums listed. Be sure to dry n between.

Thanks so much for visiting and viewing my post today. I hope that you are inspired to get crafty and creative! All products used here and many others are available online at the link below!

Be Kind to Yourself Art Journal page by Lisa

Hi AA friends! Lisa today to share with you my last art journal spread, using AA Stencil, Colorations sprays and AA paints!

To start I prepped my page by brushing white gesso. Then I chose AA Flity Stencil and I used it with versamark pad and white embossing powder. With a brush and a little bit of water I used Colorations sprays (Salmon, Barbie and Glorious) until I was happy with the blend of colours.

After that I made some stamps with Archival ink pads and I glued some pieces of tissue paper. I used Sorbet Flamingo and Sorbet Black Leather Jacket to made some ink splatters

I glued some embellishments and I made other splatters with Velvet Beyond the Reef.

Here some close ups photos:

Today/ Mixed Media Layout

Good morning! Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using a variety of mixed media mediums. For this layout, I used Velvet Dimensional Paint (Fiji, Tuxedo). I also used Sorbet in Vegas Gold…PRETTY!!! And I used Salmon and Waimea Bay Colorations Sprays. Love how vibrant these sprays are. GORGEOUS.

To begin, I sprayed the Colorations sprays onto white cardstock. Then, I used the Pebbles stencil and the Vegas Gold Velvet Paint to create a fun patterned at the bottom of the layout.

I dry brushed the Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint all over the top half of the layout. I had a general idea as to what I wanted this layout to look like and it turned out perfectly.

Once the paint was dry, I sprayed the Waimea Bay Colorations Spray all across the top of the layout and let it drip down. I did this two times. Then I used a heat gun to dry the ink.

I used the Take Flight stencil and the Tuxedo Velvet to paint the birds. Love these little guys!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today. It means so much to me!

Colorations Sprays Rainbow Stenciled Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone!  Suzanne here today to share with you a vibrant and colorful rainbow layout courtesy of Art Anthology Colorations Sprays and Stencils!   This layout is much simpler than I’m accustomed to creating, but I love that the Colorations Sprays lend so much of a colorful punch that simple is all that’s needed!

I begin the layout by centering  the Wheel Stencil onto a piece of a white cardstock. Using an array of Art Anthology Colorations Sprays, start misting the colors in sections onto the stencil.

Take note to spray complimentary colors next to each other. If the colors bleed, it’ll add a new color which contributes to the rainbow effect!

Once all sprays have been applied, Lift the stencil up and away from the page. Tip: to prevent over spray, simply mask off the edges of the stencil with scrap paper; a good way to “clean” the stencil is to to sandwich between pages in your art journal or pick up the color with tags!

While the mists are drying, it’s time to add a little embellishing with the Industrial Stencil. Although Art Anthology mists and paints work beautifully with the stencils, I opted to use a permanent marker!  I am an amazingly messy scrapper, but with this particular application, I wanted to be just a tad neater.

On a separate piece of cardstock, simply use a broad-tip permanent marker to “color in” the edge of the design of the Industrial stencil-cut the design from the cardstock to use as a design element!

All that’s left to do is to assemble the layout with patterned paper, flower embellishments, and to splatter coordinating colors on the wheel for a little added detail and interest!

Needless to say, I LOVE these sprays!  They have been a joy to work with, and I am certain they will be called upon often in my crafty adventures! Here’s a list of the Colorations Sprays and Stencils used to create this layout.

Supplies:
Colorations: Barbie, Glorious, Siesta Key, Patience, Sky, Granny Smith
Stencils: Industrial, Wheel 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope that I have inspired you to get into your crafty space and get some ink on your hands!  If you need more inspiration, make sure you are following us on Pinterest and don’t forget to join our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

Mixed Media Beach Board by Toni

Hi everyone… hope you are all having a nice month of August. Today I have for you a clip board I purchased from the dollar store and I transformed it into a beachy layout, featuring my daughter and my niece about 25 years ago… Hope you enjoy. I started by adding some wood grain paper and then priming the surface for my sprays and paints. Using some drift wood from the beach, twigs from my yard, fishnet, and paper clay elements provided lots of yummy texture. Applying my Colorations Sprays and Minx Shimmering Inks really brought this to life. All of the supplies used will be listed below. Take the unexpected and turn it into a keepsake to hold your memories. I hope you will give this a try. I also have a process video below for your viewing. Wishing you a day filled with peace & love…. hugs

Supplies used:

Create Art Journal Page by Farrel Tailor

Hi there Art Anthology Fans!!! Farrel here to share my very first design team member creation. Today I have created a double art journal page using Metal Effects Medium, Colorations Sprays and some stencils.

  1. To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.

2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.

3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.

4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.

Here is some more pictures of the finished page

Art Anthology Products Used

Metal Effects – Silver

Colorations Spray – Siesta Key, Peacock Feathers, Indigo

Stencils – Diamond Grunge, Soliloquy

Please feel free to watch the process video below and thank you for dropping by, I hope I have inspired you to create in your art journal book with Art Anthology products.

Having the Time of My Life Mixed Media Layout

Good morning friends! Nicole here. I’m so excited to be a part of this team and I can’t wait to inspire you with my layouts and mini albums. I’ve been working on several projects…my mojo has not left me yet. It took me a few nights to create this layout, but the end result was so worth it!

 

For this layout, I used a variety of mediums. I totally had fun with this layout! I used the Bits of Grunge Stencil to create stars in the background.

 

I painted the blue background using the Beyond the Reef Velvet Dimensional Paint then covered the blue using the Linen Clear coat to add some shine to the layout.

I painted white cardstock using the Azalea Shine Dimensional Medium and Beyond the Reef. Once the paint was completely dry, I used a tiny star punch to punch out the stars. Each star looks different!

I painted the chipboard using the Tuxedo Velvet Dimensional Paint and the Linen Clear Coat. Love the Tuxedo Velvet. It is opaque and works beautifully with altering chipboard and stencils.

I love the pink and blue on this layout. It’s so pretty and this layout totally matches my sister’s personality. A bit girly, but Tomboyish. 🙂

Check out the video to see how this beauty came together!

Supplies Used:

Colorations Spray: Patience

Minx Shimmering: Stargazer

Velvet Dimensional Medium: Beyond the Reef, Tuxedo

Clear Coat: Linen

Shine Dimensional Medium: Azalea
