Shabby Altered Box

Hello crafters !

Valerie here, back with a new mixed media project !

Soft colors of Spring, butterflies and flowers were my inspiration for today… I’m came up with this shabby altered box :

I use two Colorations sprays on this box, Avocado and Wild Orchid, and in two ways, by spraying (box and embellishments) and by painting (the cameo and the frame).

Here another close-up on the clay frame and cameo, painted with the Colorations sprays with a brush…

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

Thank you for stopping by today, and see you in two weeks…

Collect Beautiful Moments by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new project. It’s springtime here in the U.S. one of my favorite times of the year, so I decided to create a butterfly canvas.  It was time to bust out the Sculpture Medium. I’ve been wanting to play with this for some time. Once my cheesecloth was completely dry it was stiff as a board and took to Art Anthology’s mediums and spray beautifully.

I think this will be a pretty addition to my altered canvases in my studio. I also utilized my new Paper Clay Moulds and created some of my own embellishments to enhance my canvas. 

Wishing you a beautiful springtime and hoping you “Collect Beautiful Moments” along the way.

For your enjoyment I have including a Snapguide tutorial below for my step x step process.

Time flies when you are clowning around

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here with my first March inspiration.

This time I made a square 6*6” chipboard altered board using lots of Art Anthology stencils, paints  and sprays.

This chipboard was first covered with gesso. Then I added texture paste with our fantastic Art Anthology …… stencil.

Here are some close ups for you to see:

 

 

 

The whole composition was born when I decided to add a stamped clown image over the board and to use the stamped ” Clowning around” sentiment.

This was my first time to mix Sorbet paint with 3d art stones and it worked in the best possible artistic way over the board.

As always I made a full Snapguide tutorial that you can see HERE:

Hope you liked my art piece. See you again in  two weeks with another Art Anthology inspiration.

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!

XO XO by Toni

Hi everyone, Happy February, it’s the month of love… and well if you know me you know how much I love steampunk. I love everything about it, the fantasy, the grunge, the unusual, the colors, the Victorian feel to it. It does not limit my imagination, I can go wild with transforming an ordinary object into something crazy and unexpected.

I purchased these two letters quite some time ago at my local craft store on clearance. Originally they were $14.99 a piece…. what !!!! But I got them for $2.00 each, what a steal.

Loaded with lots of yummy textures enhanced with Art Anthology’s paints, sprays and pastes helped achieve the aged look. 

With the use of Art Anthology’s stencil,  drippings from my glue gun and lots of different sized seed beads, my new wall art work started to come alive. 

I just love using unexpected items in my art work and my letter here is filled with floral rocks that were beautifully transformed with Art Anthology’s paints.

Many of my items on this piece were made from paperclay, grunge board or plastic, but the patina’d look that AA’s paste and paints provides transforms them into metal-like piece.

I hope this has inspired you to enter the world of steampunk, don’t be afraid, let your imagination run free and just have fun with it. For your pleasure I have included a Snapguide tutorial for your viewing and also below are a list of products from AA that helped me achieve the look I was going for. xoxo Toni

“Love Always” by Toni

Hi crafty peeps, Toni here with an altered picture frame. Now I purchased this frame at $1.00 store, and I can’t believe the transformation, it came out wonderful. 

Using Art Anthology products once again brought my entire piece together quite easily. Using Mud Texture Paste and then applying a crackle medium over the top was the base of my project. 

Once your paste has dried and has some amazing cracks, I brushed over the top with Black Leather Jacket Sorbet, allow to somewhat dry and then remove with baby wipes to provide an antiqued look.  The flowers were painted with assorted AA paints, topped them off with Metal Effects Gold.

My key was created from paper clay in a mould and aged to perfection with Mud texture paste and then topped with lots of rusty colors from AA’s paints. Gold wire was wrapped and then secured to frame. Hope this has given you new ideas for those inexpensive buys at the store. xoxo Toni

Find your Star Clear acrylic deco

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second January tutorial made for Art Anthology.

Irit is here with my new artistic inspiration made  for you.

irit_sig

This time I made a clear acrylic wall deco project using the old and forgotten acrylic page from the 7 years non used album.

I call it a kind of recycling as I never made the clear album, but I use those pages for other altered projects and I really like the use of my old stash.

And just to add to this ” use your stash” thing I used the very old decoupage paper on the back of this project, the very old chipboard star and even older metal letters.

This is a kind of a low cost project and it’s like ” make the background, add some themed pieces and make the statement” project.

I really hope that you got some inspiration from this project and you now understand that making art doesn’t mean that you need the buy the latest and greatest products.

All you need are great Art Anthology products and a lot of your imagination.

Here are some close- ups to this finished project:

And as always there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial I made for you HERE:

See you again next month and enjoy your crafting during those cold Winter days!
