Mixed Media Card Set by Toni

Hi everyone… Toni here today with a fun project. I love making ATC’s and they are the perfect little pieces of art to place on the front of a card. I decided I wanted to make a set of “All Occasion” cards for a friend of mine so here we go. I created my ATC’s with chipboard and started by adding tissue tape, stamped old book pages and used a pretty stencils from Art Anthology with Sorbet Glass. Then started applying my pretty Colorations in Wild Orchid, Plush, Timeless and Glorious…. gorgeous color combo. Added some more texture using another AA stencil and running black modeling paste through it. 

Stamped and cut out the butterflies and using the Colorations I applied them with a water brush to give a watercolor effect. Added some dew drops and upholstery thread for interesting  texture.To bring out the colors in the shadows of the butterflies I then added Sorbets in Vegas Gold, Sunshine and Purple Rain. Then cut a mat for each ATC and adhered to the white card stock. Stamped different sentiments on each card and now we have a pretty gift card set to give. The seam binding was sprayed also with Plush and Wild Orchid. For your enjoyment I have provided a Snapguide tutorial of my process. Be sure to follow us on Facebook HERE and download your beautiful projects for all of us to be inspired by as well.  Also stop by and subscribe to our YOUTUBE channel for process videos from the designers. Wishing you a wonderful day ! xoxo Toni

Black and bright ATCs

Hello !

Valerie again with a new project for you : ATCs ! ATCs are Artist Trading Cards, same format than games cards, 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. You can give or exchange them, like little pieces of art.

How did I create those ? White cardstock and Art Anthology products of course ! OK, I also use stamp and die…

I used Colorations sprays in Glorious, Timeless and Juicy for the background. Then I applied Coral Sorbet with the Lotus stencil

After making another layer with pink ink and the Fragments stencil, the birds were drawn using the Take flight stencil and a black pen. Then I was done with the background…

Next, I cut the globe in white cardstock with a die, and applied Raider Colorations spray over it. I painted white cardstock with Sunshine Sorbet and Glorious Colorations spray before stamped it with sentiment. Once cut, I just glued the sentiment on my ATC, and I was done !

I made a quick video tutorial for you that you can watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope to see you very soon for another project !

Mini Masterpieces with Toni

Happy month of June everyone , hope you all are staying cool out there because we have been in the triple digits where I live. This month’s mood board is providing some warm colors and wonderful textures… Hope it inspires your next project.

I’m in the mood to get messy today with my Art Anthology products and shaving cream ! It’s an easy way to create master boards for your projects. Every single one is completely different and original.  I used my backgrounds to create some fun ATC’s.

 Start with this…

 Then do this….

 Then do this….

 And you get this !

So here is the completed ATC’s using my pretty marbled backgrounds.

Using AA’s Mud Paste also provided some more wonderful texture run through the Kaleidoscope stencil.

Some embossing and use of mica powders provided some pretty glimmer.

As well as textile scraps and seed beads.

Hope you will give this technique a try. For a complete step x step process take a moment to view my Snapguide tutorial below. Also don’t forget to create along with us using this month’s mood board as inspiration and post it on our Facebook page HERE

Make your own rust effects with Art Anthology!

Hello Art Anthology Fans!! Dream Team member Brandy here today to share my project inspired by our moodboard over on the Facebook group page, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!
This month’s board features some awesome rusty objects! If you haven’t played along yet, what are you waiting for!? 🙂

I’ve heard of other companies having mediums that look like rust, so naturally I had to see if we could make our own with Art Anthology products! Turns out, I only had to add one ingredient to some paint……and it was sand!

With a combination of “sandy” Kenyan Copper Sorbet and Radiance Minx Shimmering Ink I was able to come up with something that looks pretty darn close! 🙂

I made a Snapguide tutorial for this project!

The Minx bottles were in good use in this project for the background, in Allure and Indulgence. The Raider Colorations Spray was handy too to pop up the crackles…
