Japanese style bookmarks

Hello crafters !

Valerie again with a project inspired by my recent visit to a bookstore, where I bought two Japanese books. I have a soft spot for the beauty and elegance of Japanese culture, and it inspire me to create these bookmarks :

I choose colors reminding me of the Land of the Rising Sun : Timeless, Juicy and Barbie for the Colorations sprays, and Coral for the Sorbet Dimensional paint.

I choose the Blocked stencil as a reminder of the square design in the stamp, and the Retro one because it looks like colorful sun on the bookmark.

You will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel.

Thank you for reading this post and see you soon for another project !

Mini Mixed Media Tag Album with Brandy

Hello Art Anthology fans! I’m here to share a very fun project! Yes, it’s a mini album, but it also folds out to be a pretty decoration you can add a few pictures to.

I used a few AA stencils and a couple AA paints to create the one of a kind background for each tag page. A couple of pieces of chipboard and some ribbon later, and you have yourself a pretty little mini album. 🙂

As usual, I’ve made a Snapguide Tutorial for this project! Come give it a try!

50 Shades of Greige by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new canvas. Now “greige is all the rage” and if your not sure what that is it’s a combination of the warm tones of gray with the cool tones of beige….. hence “greige”. It’s muted tones are easy on the eyes provide a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. Coupled with black or walnuts provide a wonderful cozy organic feel. 

Using only a few different products and mixing them either with whites to highlight or black to deepen allowed me to get several different shades of “greige”. Some of the canvas I would like to refer to as a happy accident. 

Art Anthology’s Stone Effect Sandstone really provided that pretty beige tone as well as texture to the project, and the Sorbet in Black Leather Jacket and Linen helped to tone down and deepen my Metal Effects Silver here and there on the canvas.

I believe the addition of the black cardboard and walnut chipboard provided a richness and gave it a more masculine feel. 

I hope I have inspired to become a chemist in your craftroom, start mixing those colors and see what you come up with. You never know you may discover the next color trending on Instagram and Pinterest. Happy creating !!!

Scrapbooking layout built with inks

Hello !

Valerie here to show you how to build a stunning background only with inks and papers !

Few stripes of paper and two inks are enough to create dimensions on the background. I used the Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Warm with a paint brush and water (see the link to products at the end of this post).

I layered pieces of papers from the same stack and added three die cut sprayed with Waimea Bay to drawn the eye to the picture. Drops of gesso are the final touches to this layout.

You will find the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by the blog today and for reading this post. See you in two weeks for another project !

Altered Reverse Canvas with Brandy


Hello again!! Brandy here today with a new project. This was so fun! It took me a while to figure just how I would do it, but I wanted it to be just right. I’ve been wanting to try decorating on the reverse side of a canvas for some time. It can be kind of like a shadow box, but the wood frame gives you a bigger area to create on that faces forward.

As usual, I’ve created a tutorial over at Snapguide, so you can give this project a try yourself!!

Paint on clay Winter banner

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today and I am going to share my new Art Anthology experiment- using Art Anthology products over the dry polymer clay surfaces.

During my time on this team I try to use Art Anthology paints over different surfaces and to see the results. So far I used wood , canvas, cardstock and clear acrylic board. Today I used polymer clay pieces and I need to say that Art Anthology products work perfectly over this surfaces too.

So here is a Winter banner I made with Makin’s Clay non baked polymer clay (you just need to wait like 12 hours before it’s totally dry to apply the paints over the surface).

 

And now for some close ups to all three banner pieces:

 

 

 

 

As you can sew from those close- ups I used Art Anthology stencil and dimentional paint over the clay surface and it’s works perfectly!

So here is a full step by step tutorial for you:

And as always- full Art Anthology product list is HERE:

I hope that I inspired you to try totally different surfaces with our fantastic products!

See you soon again!
