Today is full of possibilities by Lisa

Hi friends! Lisa here today to show you my last art journal pages, made with beautiful Velvet paints & Colorations sprays by Art Anthology! This is my last post with AA design team, I felt very honored to be part of it in these six months and I thank those who believed in me and gave me this fabulous opportunity! I hope to have inspired you with my projects in these months, and this is another one just for you!

To start I brushed white gesso, then modelling paste through AA stencil and I let it dry.

After that I used Colorations sprays (Siesta Key, Plush and Glorious) on my background, with a brush and a little bit of water to blend the colors.

Then I used some stamps with archival inks.

So I glued some paper embellishments and I made splatters with Velvet Paint (DayGlow, Tuxedo and Cotton)

Here some close ups photos:

Create Art Journal Page by Farrel Tailor

Hi there Art Anthology Fans!!! Farrel here to share my very first design team member creation. Today I have created a double art journal page using Metal Effects Medium, Colorations Sprays and some stencils.

  1. To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.

2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.

3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.

4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.

Here is some more pictures of the finished page

Art Anthology Products Used

Metal Effects – Silver

Colorations Spray – Siesta Key, Peacock Feathers, Indigo

Stencils – Diamond Grunge, Soliloquy

Please feel free to watch the process video below and thank you for dropping by, I hope I have inspired you to create in your art journal book with Art Anthology products.
