Altered wooden panel.

A little gesso first made it better already!

Art Anthology Products Used:

Nautical shadow box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first May Art Anthology project.

I am a big fan of cheap $ store products that can be altered and embellished.

So with Art Anthology great paints, colorations and stencils I made this Nautical shadow box and as you can see it looks fabulous!

 

I decided not to cover the inside of the shadow part with paint and the white space makes the inside stencilled piece to shine.

Here are some close – ups to this piece:

Recycled ” Dream” wall decoration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second April Art Anthology post.

 

This time I decided to show you how you can use your old and messy paint brushes and to make a lovely wall decoration using them with Art Anthology paints and a stencil.

As you can see the project base is made of 21 old paint brushes. My problem is that I never clean my brushes in a proper way. I do clean them here and there, but finally they are done and gone and the only thing you can make with them is an altered project.

Lucky me, I never buy the expensive brushes and those are all kind of a general $ store ones.

So then life gives you messy ” lemons” make a nice lemonade and in my case make a nice altered project.

Here you can see some close- ups to this project:

Altered butterfly chipboard album

Hello everyone !

Valerie there to present you a new project with Art Anthology inks and paints… This time I made a mini album with the cheap chipboard album you can find in the dollar section of craft shops, crackle paste and three Colorations sprays :

Each page was covered with white gesso, then white crackle paste, and once dry, painted with a brush and Colorations sprays in Glorious, Ink and Juicy.

The inks spraid into the crackles to create a beautiful effect different on each page.

The air dry key was covered with Reef Velvet paint. Few flowers and leaves and you’ll will not been able to say it was a cheap chipboard album !

To see how I turn a basic into a gorgeous album, watch the video on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just here :

Blooming altered box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Art Anthology post.

Spring is in the air and the best way to celebrate Spring is to make a bright and full of flowers project.

So this altered wooden box is my tribute to Spring and to everything new. Why is it everything new? As this is my very first time to make self made painted flowers and the very first time to use Foamiran to make those flowers.

I heard about this product that is actually the very thin foam. You can die cut it, paint it and then shrink it a bit with your heat gun to get those great, pretty much like real, flowers.

So for my very first attempt to use this foam I used Art Anthology paints and colorations to see if it works. And it worked just perfect.

Here are some close – ups to the flowers and then I made a tutorial to show you how you can make  the flowers and to embellish your $ store simple wooden box with these flowers.

 

 

 

You can see the full step by step tutorial here on a Snapguide:

All products are listed in the Snapguide and I made a full Art Anthology products list here in this post too:

Velvet: Limeaid,Cotton Candy

Sorbet: Leaf,Dazzle,Red Velvet

Stone Effect-Brick

Gemstones- Rhodolite

Colorations– Glorious, Timeless,Barbie,Juicy,Wild Orchid, Patience

Hope you like my project and see you soon again with a totally different Mixed Media creation.

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.
