Mixed Media Embroidery Hoop by Toni

Hi everyone, today I have a fun altered project that you can create using fabric and Art Anthology’s products.  I started with my embroidery hoop with muslin material.  I added some texture paste through one of our stencils and then began adding my pretty colors of Sorbets, Velvets & Coloration Sprays. For some of my embellishments I used hot glue and used them in sea shell molds. Then I primed them with gesso and continued using the beautiful AA products on them. Fun summery project, I hope you enjoyed and for your pleasure I have a video tutorial below. Have a spectacular day !

“Breath In Breath Out’ Mixed Media Layout

Hi everyone, today I want to share how very simple it is to add some mixed media elements to your scrapbook layout. Mixed media has gotten so popular but still so many are intimidated by the word “Mixed Media”. I’m here today to tell you if you are a scrapper or card maker, chances are you are already doing mixed media.

Wikipedia says: Mixed media is an artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed. Assemblages and collages are two common examples of art using different media that will make use of different materials including cloth, paper, wood and found objects. So, what that means if you are a card maker you use paper, sometimes stamping with ink, adding embellishments, sometimes markers etc…. you are already doing mixed media. So don’t let the word scare you any longer. Let’s get started with this very simple layout.  I really wanted the colors on this to be very subtle so that my photo would really be the focal point. So the Art Anthology paints I used were our Metal Effects and our Stone Effects (all products will be listed below in the video discription)With the use of a couple of our stencils (and we have so many to choose from) this provided added patterns to my paper as well as texture. With the addition of some seed beads (because I can’t ever get enough texture… lol) and pretty flowers, my layout was finished. I hope you give this a try. Below is a process video of me creating this layout. If you have any questions or would like to see the designers use the product in a certain way, be sure to follow us on Facebook HERE and just ask us questions. We are all here to help one another on our creative journey. xoxo Toni

“Life Began In A Garden” by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new design team project for Art Anthology.  I have always loved rusty things , antiques, worn looking items, so it doesn’t surprise me that my most favorite thing to do regarding ART is making something look old, vintage, aged.  I started with a T!m Holtz Vignette and with the help of Art Anthology products and some crackle varnish, this little project came to be.  The video below shows how I created a peeled paint look using some of our paints. I used Stone Effects-Bone on the window to provide texture. Florals were added to the sides of the vignette. After the peeled paint technique, crackle varnish was then added and Coloration Sprays as well as Shine-Kelly were added for a wonderful old mossy look. Thank you for stopping by, be sure to take a moment to view the video below, and all the supplies used for Art Anthology are listed below. Have a wonderful week !

Supplies used:

Mixed media ATC with new medium colors

Hi there !

Did you try the new colors already ? If not, let me show their goodness in a new project, ATCs !

Starting with white cardstock, I sprayed Waimea Bay Colorations. Then I droped water over it and remove it with a paper towel to let the white appear.

Using the Bubbles stencil, I drawn randomly some circles with a black pen, and paint inside them with the new Shine Ocean.

Once dried, I stamped some round designs before applying the new Flamingo over the Diamond Pattern stencil.

The flower are black die cuts with a shadow painted with the new Sorbet Summer and the journaling is stamped and cut.

The final touch was to distress the edges of the ATCs with black ink.

Here is my tutorial for this project, but you can also watch it on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

This is my last post with Art Anthology. It has been two wonderful year. Thanks to you for viewing my projects, even maybe watching my videos ! See you around the crafty world !

Scrapbooking layout in red and blue

Hello everyone !

Back with a layout this time, playing with Velvet, stencil and ink for a neutral gender look, as the picture I choose featured my daughter and my nephew… So blue, red and black are my color choices…

After using a chicken wire stamp on the edges of the paper, I applied the Beyond the Reef medium and the Desire Velvet over the Wheel stencil to achieve my background.

The Beyond the Reef medium also colored few of the tags of my layering.

It’s amazing how the color differ with the thickness… when use as paint, I obtained a beautiful water-like blue, and as medium over the stencil, this blue is very deep !

Before layering my papers and picture, I used the Raider Colorations spray to create the small ink spots on my background…

Here is the video tutorial if you want to take a look at my creative process…

Thank you for your time, see you soon for another project…

Mixed Media Vintage Frame by Toni

Hi everyone, today we’re going to get a bit grungy.  I purchased a frame at the dollar store and decided I wanted to alter it up. I first added some lace to the frame to give some pretty texture, then I primed the surface with gesso for all my sprays and paints I wanted to add.  I’m  not really a purple kind of girl, but sometimes it’s good to create with something out of your comfort zone… It helps you grow as a creative. This project is filled with layers of lace, mixed media products, papers and embellies.  Just keep layering until you get the look you like… “It’s Artist’s Choice”. I will have a list of products used below. Take a ride to the dollar tree, see what they have that you can alter up. Have fun with your creativity ! For your enjoyment I have included a process video below. xoxo Toni

Products used:

Colorations-Warm, Sedona, Plush, Sandcastle, Raider

Minx Shimmering Inks-Decadent

Velvet-Boysenberry

Mixed Media Wooden Tag by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a heartfelt project, dedicated to a very dear friend that I lost almost 2 years ago. The image on the front of this tag was actually the last card I received from her for my birthday. I thought this would be a nice way to keep this treasure. This wooden tag was primed first with white gesso and then collaged with book pages and scrapbook paper. Then I applied black modeling paste through one of Art Anthology’s NEW stencils Multi Damask. Then with the help from Art Anthology’s Rust and Patina Texture Set I was able to alter the heart and edges of the tag. Colorations Sprays were used to dye the seam binding at the top of the tag. For your pleasure I have included a process video and there is also a list of supplies used below. Wishing you a bright and peaceful day !

Supplies Used:

Colorations; Warm, Peacock Feathers, Siesta Key

Rust Texture Set

Patina Texture Set

Stencil-Multi Damask

For your pleasure here is a video of my creative process… xoxo Toni
