Dimensional mediums and stencils to build an art journal spread

Hello !

You will notice that this month AA designers had fun with the gorgeous stencils available on the shop… I made no exception and used two of them in my project :

 

After building the background with Colorations sprays in Timeless and Warm, and a stamp, I finally used the gold accent washi tapes lost in my stash…

I added then some splash of colors with Gold Metal Effect, Poppy Sorbet and Leaf Sorbet. I also use the Leaf Sorbet on the acrylic accent for my journaling, and with the Bits of Grunge stencil. The second stencil I used was the Blocked stencil with Kenyan Copper Sorbet. Use the Sorbet mediums over stencils gives the paint more texture and dimension.

You will find plenty of stencils to play with on the store, and several projects from the DT during November with them…

If you want to learn more about my creative process, you can either watch my new video tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

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

Art journaling with Hexi stencil stack

Hello !

Have you ever tried to use all the stencils from the same stack at once ? That’s what my project is all about today ! Let’s see how I used the Hexi stencil stack

It’s not THE way of using it, just A way to do so, because you could use them separately or together, aligned or not… I decided to align them for this project, each one with a different medium. I started with the medium Hexi and Glorious Colorations spray, followed by the hollowed Hexi and Tango Velvet, and then the larger Hexi with Dazzle Clear Coat.

Once each coat was dried, I added some Waimea Bay Colorations spray and wipe the excess from the Hexi pattern. You can see that the blue did not go on the Hexi pattern thanks to the clear coat.

A bit of chevron stamp, black alpha stickers, some black on the edges and my journal pages were done !

You can follow my creative process through my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel (as many of our DT videos…) :

Thank you for your time, I hope this tutorial will help you use the stencil stacks more often !

Have a great day…

Hi everyone, Toni here with a fun journal page using many Art Anthology products. This page incorporated texture using AA’s Poppy and Dottie stencil as well as some embossed paper.

Express your thoughts and emotion through art, it’s liberating ! xoxo Toni

A patchwork art journal spread with Daniëlle

Hi guys,

Daniëlle here to show you what I’ve created for the current color challenge. I love broght and bold colors so this months moodboard made me really happy!

As you all know I am a big fan of art journaling so I created this patchwork art journal spread:

First I created the patches with velvets (Desire, Taxi cab and Shamrock). Later on I added Canary yellow shine on the yellow patch for some difference in surface. Next I used a stencil and Kelly green shine on the red patch & a different stencil and desire velvet on the yellow patch. I filled the green patches with a nice text and a tulip stamp (which I colored with kelly green shine and ferrari sorbet). Do a little doodling and your page is complete!

 

Here ar some extra pics of the pages:

Have a good, creative day!

Beautifully Aged by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a quick post to encourage you to create even when you are limited on supplies. Alot of times us crafters feel like we have to have everything on the market in order to create something wonderful (I’m guilty of this myself). Every color of paint, every embellishment, every paper line. Yes arts and crafts can be very costly. My project I created is a two page journal spread that I literally used 1 spray, 1 paint, gesso and rusted embellishments and papers that were handmade. Let’s get started. A great way to use what you have is go on the web and look for great pictures that include colors that you may have on hand so you are encouraged to use what is in your stash.  I fell in love with this photo of the old paint brushes which involved very limited palette of colors.   I first decided to rust up some papers and metal pieces to use in my art. In a bowl, combine Hydrogen Peroxide, Distilled Vinegar and Salt. Place items inside and allow to sit to rust. The papers took about 10 minutes and the metal pieces took about 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the material they were made of.  You can check out my video on my Facebook page to see how I accomplished this. To add a bit of texture to the foundation I used Art Anthology Velvet in Tuxedo ran it through a stencil. The Snapguide tutorial below explains this in detail. Don’t allow limited access to art supplies to discourage your ability to play. “The world is but a canvas to your imagination” Henry David Thoreau

AA products used

Velvet-Tuxedo

Stencil-Morse Code

Colorations Spray – Wild Orchid
