“Wonderful” – A Mini Mixed Media Piece by Jenn DuBell

Hello Art Anthology Fans! Jenn here today sharing a fun little piece of mixed media art with you!

This project was inspired by recent YouTube videos I watched. It actually started out as a very small approximately 4″ slice of wood.

I have used the following products available at Art Anthology:
Colorations Sprays – Peacock Feathers, Siesta Key
Texture sets in Rust and Patina
Minx Shimmering Ink – Gold Dust
Stencil – Off The Grid Stack

To create this I first coated the entire piece with a heavy white gesso to prime it. Once that was dry, I added some texture paste through the stencil and let that dry.


Next, once all of the texture was dry I added some stamping with black archival ink. I also added some swipes of crackle paste here and there and allowed that to dry. Starting with Colorations in Peacock feathers I added color to the piece.

Next a bit of the Siesta Key colorations, folowed by watered down hints of the Teal from the Patina Texture set. Once those were dried with my heat tool I added Minx gold dust and touches of watered down Amber from the Rust Texture set.

Finally I added all of my embellishments and some art stones for texture.

The photo below shows how small this piece actually is…

floral jar

A Floral Jar

Hello, welcome to another tutorial. As some of you already know, I love repurposing common household objects and turning into works of art. I recently made this beautiful floral jar with tissue, clay flowers and Art Anthology Products and I loved it so much that I decided to do a video tutorial.

Floral Jar

I make my own clay flowers with Delight Clay™ and silicone molds, the kind you use for gum paste and fondant. I find this much cheaper as molds can be used over and over again. Also, the detail you get using the Delight Clay™ is amazing!

Below is a supply list and a video tutorial showing you how to make this jar. It actually would be a great gift for someone special.

Art Anthology Products used:

Salmon Colorations Spray
Sandcastle Colorations Spray
Flamingo Sorbet Dimensional Paint

Other products used are:
glass jar
gesso
tissue
clay flowers
collage paper
soft gel medium
white acrylic paint

Christmas Card inspiration with Daniëlle

Hi guys!

How are you doing? I have a quick inspirational post for you today. Every year I create some Christmas cards and this year I used an Art Anthology background for them.

I created the background using three colorations sprays colors, Minx inks and Fairy Dust with a stencil. As you can see I also added some background stamping, a different text for each card. I also added a layer of clear coat sterling through a stencil. Add a cute image and text and your cards are ready! I like my Christmas cards all shiny and sparkly so I use lots of Minx, Fairy Dust and clear coat. I also use pearlescent cardstock but that’s quite hard to photograph.

I hope to inspire you to create a quick little Christmas card yourself!

See you again soon!

Clear coat: Splashed
