Mixed Media Vintage Frame by Toni

Hi everyone, today we’re going to get a bit grungy.  I purchased a frame at the dollar store and decided I wanted to alter it up. I first added some lace to the frame to give some pretty texture, then I primed the surface with gesso for all my sprays and paints I wanted to add.  I’m  not really a purple kind of girl, but sometimes it’s good to create with something out of your comfort zone… It helps you grow as a creative. This project is filled with layers of lace, mixed media products, papers and embellies.  Just keep layering until you get the look you like… “It’s Artist’s Choice”. I will have a list of products used below. Take a ride to the dollar tree, see what they have that you can alter up. Have fun with your creativity ! For your enjoyment I have included a process video below. xoxo Toni

Products used:

Colorations-Warm, Sedona, Plush, Sandcastle, Raider

Minx Shimmering Inks-Decadent

Velvet-Boysenberry

Copper Patina

Mixed Media Wooden Tag by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a heartfelt project, dedicated to a very dear friend that I lost almost 2 years ago. The image on the front of this tag was actually the last card I received from her for my birthday. I thought this would be a nice way to keep this treasure. This wooden tag was primed first with white gesso and then collaged with book pages and scrapbook paper. Then I applied black modeling paste through one of Art Anthology’s NEW stencils Multi Damask. Then with the help from Art Anthology’s Rust and Patina Texture Set I was able to alter the heart and edges of the tag. Colorations Sprays were used to dye the seam binding at the top of the tag. For your pleasure I have included a process video and there is also a list of supplies used below. Wishing you a bright and peaceful day !

Supplies Used:

Colorations; Warm, Peacock Feathers, Siesta Key

Rust Texture Set

Patina Texture Set

Stencil-Multi Damask

For your pleasure here is a video of my creative process… xoxo Toni

Mixed Media Flower Canvas by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here and I’m having so much fun with some of Art Anthology’s NEW products… Have you checked out the store… WOW so many beautiful NEW stencils and so many gorgeous NEW colors of dimensional paints. I used the new Double Flower Stencil for this canvas. Prepped the canvas first with crackle medium and allowed it to dry. Then I created my flowers using a different method of appying the paint to the stencils. Instead of adding the medium and then swiping the excess, I applied the paints like frosting a cake and left it thick…. check out my video below for more details. Applying it this way provided a wonderful dimensional texture. And it’s so easy with Art Anthology’s gel based paints. Once the flowers were dry, I fussy cut all of them and adhered them to the canvas and highlighted the shadow areas with Minx Shimmering Inks. Finishing off the canvas with a dry brushing of Amber Sorbet (from the rust set). Hope you give this technique a try, so much fun experimenting with mixed media. Wishing you a day filled with love & peace.

For your pleasure I have included a video to share my creative process. xoxo Toni

Daffodil card with mediums and stencil

Hello everyone !

Here I am again with a different project, still inspired but Spring but in terms of colors this time, and by my favorite artistic movement, the Art Nouveau :

This card was first cut with an electronic machine, but dies can work too…

I use the resist technique with the Art Nouveau stencil and Glass Sorbet, as well as Glorious and Avocado (you can use Granny Smith too) Colorations sprays, on the center part of the card.

Frame, card base and stem were painted in Kelly Green Shine and Shamrock Velvet (you can use Gecko Green Velvet instead).

The flowers were painted with Canary Shine and Dayglow Yellow. The mat was in Dayglow Yellow too.

I just add a sentiment to finish my card…

As usual, here is my video tutorial to guide you to create this card :

Thank you for your time, see you next month for another project…

Have a great day !
