Pretty in Pink Layout

Hey Crafty Friends Phyllis here today to share my latest layout using Art Anthology’s Colorations sprays.  I love Rustic Colorations spray it goes with so many colors!  I will show you how I created this layout with a YouTube video tutorial!

Below are a few close up pictures and at the end you can view the video tutorial.

I love to use Art Anthology’s Bubbles Stencil,  it’s so fun to create with.   I also used Art Anthology’s Patience and Plush Colorations sprays and I love how it turned out!

I did alittle bit of stamping for more interest in the background.   and of course lots of flower embellishments for texture and color!

Embrace Time by Toni

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a layout featuring a photo I took at the beach as a “goodbye for now” to summer, as it is now fall. Time surely does fly and that’s why the title on my layout is perfect…. Embrace Time.


Using Art Anthology stencil along with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder gives some pretty bubbles to my backdrop for my photos. Along with Minx Shimmering Inks & Coloration Sprays to enhance the muted gray cardstock, these enhance the layout perfectly.


Stone Effects adds such pretty gritty texture to your pieces, and this was added to sections of my chipboard fishnet as well as my surfboards. And then to finish off the layout I added seed beads, seashells, rocks & assorted florals.  Hope you had a spectacular summer, as for me I am so over the heat spell we have been having and sooooo ready for fall… xoxo Toni

It’s A Beautiful Day

Hi to everyone and hope your having a wonderful summer. It’s been scorching hot here where I am and  I came upon this photo of my daughter in Central Park, NY last winter and needed to cool down a bit so I thought this would be a fun layout to work on. DSC08168

My background was started using my Velvet paints in assorted colors (listed below)  with some of Art Anthology’s pretty stencils (listed below). Then to enhance some of the stencil work I added embossing powder. DSC08165

Adding more dimension and splashes of color I sprayed on my Coloration sprays here and there for interest. DSC08155

Butterfly wings and chipboard pieces were embossed for a pretty metallic sheen and bring the whole layout together.  Hope these photos have inspired you to get out some of those candid shots you have sitting around the house and create an extraordinary layout using your Art Anthology products. Wishing you a “Beautiful Day”….Toni
