Blossom: A Journal Page

Hello, With all that is going on I have been suffering from “artist block” lately. Everyone is self isolating (full house) and it is difficult getting work done peacefully. When I am lost for inspiration I try art journaling. This usually helps me free up and ideas start to flow again. It was a slow uphill battle but I managed to get a page done.

I made a warm and vibrant textured page using Art Anthology Dimensional Mediums. I then added texture paste and when dry, added some of the new Art Anthology gilders wax to the raised areas of my stenciled image.

Here are the supplies I used:

Mixed Media Sea Tag

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Jenn here today sharing a fun mixed media tag with a Sea theme. I have used Art Anthology Colorations Sprays, Minx Shimmering Inks, and Stencil.

AA Colorations Sprays – Timeless, Siesta Key
AA Minx Shimmering Ink – Gold Dust
AA Stencil – Messy Bubbles

To create my tag, I first adhered a grungy style paper to it and roughed up the edges. I also inked the edges using a brown distress ink. Next, I added some texture paste through the messy Bubbles stencils and let it dry. I smeared some crackle paste here and there and let that dry as well

Next I added AA Colorations Sprays alternating between the colors and drying in between with my heat tool. I then added the amazing shimmer seen using Minx in Gold Dust!

I love how the color settles in all of the crackle paste adding texture!

To finish my tag, I added lots of sea elements using shells, chipboards, paper and art stones.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog and viewing my post today! I hope that you are inspired to create something today!

Mixed Media Card by Farrel Tailor

Hi Everyone, today is my last share for Art Anthology, I can’t believe that it has been 6 months already and I have loved every minute of it. I feel very blessed to have been apart of such an amazing design team and to be able to have hopefully inspired all of you to use your AA products.

Below is my mixed media card

I started by stamping my background using Watering Can Archival Ink and Uniquely Creative’s Numeric Stamp. I then added some stenciling some pearl modeling paste with Art Anthology’s stencil – Art Deco

I stamped some butterflies onto some white cardstock and used Colorations Sprays – Juicy, Plush and Patience to add some colour to them.

For the background of the card, I used a super wet paint brush and used same Colorations Sprays as above I applied the sprays like water colour paints.

Dreamer of Dreams by Farrel Tailor

Happy New Year Everyone!!!! Farrel here to share with you all an altered frame I created using lots of Art Anthology mixed media goodies!!!

Dreamer of Dreams Frame by Farrel Tailor

I stared by painting my Dusty Attic chipboard frame with white gesso, then used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panche on the base and Sorbet Dimensional Paint – Vegas Gold on the top layer.

Next I tore a piece of paper from an old book and sprayed it with Colorations Sprays – Warm and Sandcastle. I then adhered this piece to the back of the chipboard frame.
