Hi everyone… Toni here with some creative inspiration. It’s summertime here and everyone is vacationing. Even while we are on the go, sometimes that creative spirit hits us and it’s nice to have something small that you can bust out and get a little messy with. So I am here to show you a easy way to take your canvases with you.
Using an Altoid Mint box and creating canvases on a mini accordian album to fit nicely inside, will provide a gateway for your creativity on vacation. Art Anthology’s products add the texture, glimmer and gorgeous colors needed to produce a pretty altered art kit.
Pictured here is the top and bottom of the container which has a top coat of Crackle Varnish added with seed beads to complete it.
The mini canvases are made in the form of an accordian album. Each page has been prepped for artistry with either sticky back canvas, black gesso, clear gesso or watercolor paper.. all ready for your paints, inks, pastes etc. As you can see the mini album fits nicely in the can with room for pen nibs and more. As creatives we seldom throw anything away knowing that it can probably be useful with our art. So be sure to save those mint containers and make yourself an on-the-go artist travel kit.
The Art Anthology products used are listed below as well as a step x step Snapguide tutorial for your viewing… Hope this has provided some inspiration for your next project… and wishing you a beautifully creative day ! xoxo Toni
