Nemo the Cat on Vinyl

Hi Art Anthology fans, I am back with my second project as an Art Anthology Dream-team member. This time I made a layout on an old record and used a picture of our cat Nemo.

Made this as a present for my daughter who misses the cat since she moved out to go study in Belgium.

Because the record has an interesting structure a bit of stenciling was enough for a background, I choose the stone effect dimensional medium Sandstone, because the color looked nice with the colors of the cat.

Don’t you just love the effect in combination with the Gothic stencil?

The colors of the Sorbet dimensional paint and the Colorations spray are also based on the colors I have in my picture. I really love the coloring part of mixed media altered. Sometimes you have a carnival of colors, then after gesso it is a bit boring. Adding the colors is bringing a composition to live I think.

I made you a video of the process:

List of supplies:

Stencil: Gothic

Colorations sprays: Indigo, Peacock Feather, Juicy.

Sorbet Dimensional Paint: Mermaid, Walnut, Kenyan Copper and Vegas Gold.

Stone effect : Sandstone

 

I really hope I could inspire you to create with Art Anthology products. We would love to see what you make with them in our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art.

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.

Hi there, I am so excited to share my first project for Art Anthology with you all.
Because I am a real steampunk kind of girl I thought something in that style would be fun to start with.
I used a 30 x40 cm canvas for this one and lots of steampunk embellishments, some resin, some metals and even party straws from the toys section of a store nearby.
Here are some close up pictures.
I just love the effect of the rust texture paste  together with the spray’s and paints.
List of Art Anthology supplies I used:
Colorations Color Spray: Warm, Timeless and Juicy
Sorbet Dimensional Medium: Kenyan Copper and Walnut
Texture Set: Rust
Stencil: Pipe Dream
If you would like to know how I made this, here is a video:

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

Hi everyone, today I have a fun altered project that you can create using fabric and Art Anthology’s products.  I started with my embroidery hoop with muslin material.  I added some texture paste through one of our stencils and then began adding my pretty colors of Sorbets, Velvets & Coloration Sprays. For some of my embellishments I used hot glue and used them in sea shell molds. Then I primed them with gesso and continued using the beautiful AA products on them. Fun summery project, I hope you enjoyed and for your pleasure I have a video tutorial below. Have a spectacular day !
