Enjoy the Journey – A Journal Page

Hello, today I am sharing with you a journal page made  with Art Anthology products. I love art journaling; I find it freeing, relaxing and rejuvenating all in one. Butterflies are one of my favorite subjects in my journal pages as they too are freeing. I chose the quote “Enjoy the Journey” for this page. It applies to my life right now, ups and downs and windy roads. Of course the butterflies represent my journey.

I have a full tutorial below showing how  I made this page step by step.
The Art Anthology products I used are:
Messy Bubbles Stencil 6 x 9 
Colorations Spray –  Granny Smith
Colorations Spray – Glorious
Gold Metal Effects 

Other products used:
texture paste
matte medium
collage paper
gesso
embellishments
double sided tape
paper towel

  1. Begin by adding texture paste through the Messy Bubbles Stencil. Allow to dry thoroughly.

2) Using matte medium, stick down the collage elements and allow to dry.

3) Now go over the page with gesso. You can wipe back areas that you want the collage elements to show.

4) Spray the page with Colorations Granny Smith and Glorious sprays. Use a paper towel to dab off any excess. Allow to dry.

5) Using a palette knife, spread on Metal Effects Gold Dimensional Medium.

6) Dilute some gesso and add white splatters to the page.

7) Finally, decide where you want to place your embellishments and use double sided tape to stick them on.

 

I do hope I have inspired you to make your own masterpiece. For more ideas visit us on Pinterest and also join our Facebook group, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

From The Heart a Mixed Media Tag by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa today on the blog and I’d love to share with you this mixed media tag playing with a lot of Art Anthology products!

To start I glued some pieces of tissue paper and old book pages on my tag with gel medium.

Then I brushed white gesso

I chose AA Stencil ” Messy Bubbles” and I made some stencils with modelling white paste.

Then I made some stamps with Archival black ink and I colored the background with Patience and Plush Colorations Sprays, using a round brush and water to give a watercolor effect.

After that I took Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint and I made some splatters of colour with a fan brush.

I stamped some butterflies on a piece of watercolor paper and I colored them with Siesta Colorations Spray. Then I cutted them and I used as embellishments on my tag

I made some splatters again this time with Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint to give more contrast on the background

I finished my tag adding some diecuts, stickers and sequins. On the black heart I brushed a little of Dazzle Sorbet Paint…..I love its glitter effect!

Now some close ups photos

I used these AA products:

Patience Colorations Spray

Plush Colorations Spray

Siesta Key Colorations Spray

Messy Bubbles Stencil

Cotton Velvet 

Fiji Velvet

Dazzle Clear Coat

Art Journal Pages by Lisa

Hi friends! Lisa here today to show you my last art journal pages, made with beautiful Velvet paints & Stencil by Art Anthology!

To start I brushed my pages with white gesso. Then I cutted some pieces of tissue paper, old book pages, scrapbook papers and washi taped and glued on the background with gel medium to make a collage

After with a spatula I applied white gesso to mix the background

I made some stamps with archival inks black and pink. Even if I had to repeat some of them after the coloring process I like to see some signs under the colors, it makes texture!

I chose Velvet Dimensional Paints (Boysenberry, Beyond the Reef and Cotton) and Sorbet Dimensional Paint Flamingo. I applied the colors directly with my fingers, they are so creamy and delicious!

After I applied the Cotton velvet paint to blend the background and to make some stencil. I used 6×9 Lotus from Art Anthology

I still made some stamps and I used a black watercolor pencil to make some marks. I used Cotton paint to make some splatters and I let it dry.

Finally I prepared some embellishments and I glued on my pages. Here some close up photos of my project

I used these Art Anthology products on my project:

Cotton Velvet 

Boysenberry Velvet

Beyond the Reef Velvet

Flamingo Sorbet

Lotus Stencil 6×9

Remember your Blessings Canvas

Hello!  Phyllis here to share my latest Mixed Media Canvas!  I wanted the canvas to have a soft look to it and I achieved that by spritzing Art Anthology’s Colorations and then spritzing with water to lighten the colors.

I love Art Anthology’s Bubbles Stencil,  you can tilt it sideways and it gives a whole new look!

After I used texture paste and Art Anthology’s Bubbles stencil I sprinkled glitter on before heat drying it,  it gives it a sparkle to the background!

I gave the dragfly a couple sprays of Art Anthology’s Colorations and then a spritz or two of water,  it gave me the look I was going for.

 

If you ever doubt using new ink sprays just grab a piece of scrap paper and test it out!  We have a bunch of Snapguide and YouTube Tutorials using Art Anthology products!

Hey Crafty Friends Phyllis here again to share my latest design team project.  

One of my favorite projects is creating on a canvas!  

I love the metal embellishment on the dragonfly “Embrace Imperfection”!  I have learned to just let go of what looks like it might not turn out and finish,  99% of the time it’s more than what I’ve imagined in my head.   So keep plugging along in your projects!

 

I used 9 Art Anthology Coloration sprays on this canvas!  I have a snapguide tutorial at the end of this post so you can see the process!

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope I’ve inspired you to Embrace Imperfection and create something beautiful!

Fairy Mixed Media Canvas

Hey Crafty Friends Phyllis here today to share with you my latest Mixed Media Canvas!

I wanted to use pastel colors this time with some fun Art Anthology products!

Most of my projects aren’t planned and I really don’t have any idea how it’s going to turn out.  I usually start out with figuring out a color combo and then go from there!

Art Anthology dimensional paints and sprays are so much fun to create with,  I love the texture of the dimensional paints and of course love the glitter for a touch of sparkle!

I used Art Anthology’s Such a Drip Stencil for interest and texture using MUD texture paste!

I hope you are inspired to try some Amazing Art Anthology products!  They are so fun to create with!

I also have a Snapguide tutorial below so you can see how I created the background for this Mixed Media Canvas!
