FLY mini-book, by Marleen

Hello everyone, Marleen here with a mini-book tutorial for you.

My inspiration came from everywhere!! Do you remember my earlier post about the lace book cover I made?? Well I promised you to show the inside later on. Guess what, the cover was too small for all those pages.
So I made a bigger cover now and finished the inside pages!

I used many many Art Anthology stencils you can find them all HERE.

Here you can see the video tutorial:

Hope it inspired you all 😉

Fish for love – An art journal spread

Hello everyone !

How is your summer so far ? I hope you are not too lazy to craft ? Because I have a new project for you !

It’s an art journal spread created with several stencil and mediums. I started with the Siesta Key Colrations spray, followed by the Lattice stencil with brown ink. Then Messy bubbles stencil with Mermaid Sorbet.

I matched the bubbles stencil with a bubble stamp and green ink before working on the heart shape. For that, I played with stencils and mediums, then cut out several heart of different sizes that I glued on my pages.

I outlined the hearts with a black pen and drawn hooks and lines to go along with my journaling.

If you want more details on the mediums and stencils I used to created the paper for the hearts, you will find all the details in my video tutorial :

I hope you like this project. You can find more inspiration on the Art Anthology Pinterest page or on the AA Instagram profile.

Thank you for time, see you soon for another project !

River rocks.

Hi everybody!

My vacation in France inspired me a lot.
My dog MacL loves to dive in the river to get me some rocks.

So I had a lot of them and I thought it would be nice to paint them.

First I wrote this text with acrylic ink.

And when I got home I started to paint them with the new Shine Dimensional medium.

Add Stone Effects with a Stencil to the canvas.

Stick the stones to the canvas.

Fill all the gaps with translucent glue and fill it up with Art Stones.

Then spray with different colors Colorations to give it all some color and give the finishing touch with Fairy Dust.

Some detail pics, hope you can see the gold shimmering from the Fairy Dust!?

Dreamer of Dreams Canvas by Toni

Hi artsy friends, it’s Toni here and I have for you a fun and funky canvas today, taking me back to my old macrame days in the 70’s thought I would create a fun dream catcher. Let’s get started.  We have some wonderful new stencils available in our store and today I used Twinkle Lights to create my background using Mud. Then sprayed with Colorations in Siesta Key and Glorious. Minx Shimmering Inks in Panache and Allure added some pretty shimmer. Shine paints in Canary, Teal and Onyx altered up my clay feathers.

I had fun revisiting my “hippie” era…lol and making this very simple dreamcatcher from an old plastic lid, twine and some beads.Hope you have enjoyed this and for your pleasure I have included for you a Snapguide tutorial below…… Peace

AA products used are :

Colorations – Siesta Key, Glorious

Minx- Panache, Allure

Polarized effect layout

Hello crafters !

I want to show you something I create on the Art Anthology cruise during a crop session. It’s a layout, where I used a picture of my daughter with polarized sunglasses, and I tried to recreate the polarized effect with AA mediums…

I am pretty satisfied with the result ! Strangely, using the same technique, I got two different tones with metal and chipboard/paper…

On the layout and the white gesso covered embellishments, I applied first a coat of Sandcastle Colorations spray, then few coats of Kona Velvet medium for the base.

Then I applied Mermaid Sorbet in the center, followed by a layer of Vegas Gold Sorbet. See the difference between the metal (flower, doilies and leaves) and the chipboard (title) or paper flowers ?

I made a quick video to show you how to create this polarized effect :

Thank you for stopping by today. Have fun with this new technique and see you soon…

Land Of The Free Journal Page by Toni

Hi everyone, it’s a new month and a new mood board here at Art Anthology and my design team inspiration was from the beautiful blues, reds and grays.

I created a two page journal layout. Sit back as I walk you through this fun process. Using painters tape, create strips across your pages. Using the Twilight stencil and Mud paste I added my stars to the corner of my journal page. Take your spatula and in waves add your texture paste to the uncovered portion of the strips. This will give the appearance of movement in your flag.  Allow your paste to dry completely.  I knew sprayng my strips would be easier but I didn’t have a vivid red so I took the Shine in Ruby and added it to a spray bottle with a little water and shook real good and sprayed away. Gorgeous color and coverage. Now I sprayed my stars with Indigo Colorations Spray.  Heat set all your sprays. Remove your painters tape and reveal your white strips. Taking a fine point Sharpie I wrote the lyrics to Oh Beautiful. Last but not least I used the Metal Effects in Silver with my finger and ran it over all the high parts of the Mud paste on the stars and strips. Then added my title “Land Of the Free Home of the Brave” . Hoping you are inspired by my pages and don’t forget to play along with us and create using our mood board and post it to our Facebook HERE. 

Here is a list of the products used for my journal pages.

Stencils- Twilight 

Shine- Ruby 

Colorations- Indigo 

Metal Effects – Silver 

Mud Texture Paste

Friendship card with the New Shines

Hi there !

Did you try the new Shine mediums already ? The colors are so bright I had to use them to create a peppy Friendship card !

I created my background with the Sand Stone Effect medium and the new Twinkle Lights stencil on a white paper sprayed with Sandcastle Colorations spray.

Then I stamped the flowers and sentiment with black ink, and colored the flowers with the new Shine medium in Ruby Red, Canary Yellow, Sunrise Orange and Kelly Green.

Some fussy cut, few more Ruby red strokes, and my card was done !

Here is my video tutorial to guide you step-by-step through my creative process :

Thank you for your time reviewing this project. I have a wonderful day and see you soon !
