It’s Time For Spring by Toni

Happy May everyone, our mood board this month provides crisp yummy colors to inspire you with this months projects.

April showers bring May flowers so my next project is all about making these cute little blossoms. First let me thank Holly Young (youtubber ) for her money saving tip on making the fluffy material for the flowers. And to provide more

I started with a canvas and utilized the back side to provide some dimension to my piece. Using Art Anthology Mud and some Coloration Sprays I created a brick background.

Art Anthology Metal Effects Silver with a little bit of Black Soot DI gave my chipboard gate and clock a pewter look.

Reindeer moss added to inside of canvas provided a nice mulchy area to start adding my flowers. Don’t let these little blossoms intimidate you, they are a bit tedious but so easy and so much fun. 

Hope this allowed you to discover a new way to use Art Anthology’s vibrant products. Wishing you a garden of creativity. xoxo Toni

50 Shades of Greige by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new canvas. Now “greige is all the rage” and if your not sure what that is it’s a combination of the warm tones of gray with the cool tones of beige….. hence “greige”. It’s muted tones are easy on the eyes provide a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. Coupled with black or walnuts provide a wonderful cozy organic feel. 

Using only a few different products and mixing them either with whites to highlight or black to deepen allowed me to get several different shades of “greige”. Some of the canvas I would like to refer to as a happy accident. 

Art Anthology’s Stone Effect Sandstone really provided that pretty beige tone as well as texture to the project, and the Sorbet in Black Leather Jacket and Linen helped to tone down and deepen my Metal Effects Silver here and there on the canvas.

I believe the addition of the black cardboard and walnut chipboard provided a richness and gave it a more masculine feel. 

I hope I have inspired to become a chemist in your craftroom, start mixing those colors and see what you come up with. You never know you may discover the next color trending on Instagram and Pinterest. Happy creating !!!

Remember your Blessings Canvas

Hello!  Phyllis here to share my latest Mixed Media Canvas!  I wanted the canvas to have a soft look to it and I achieved that by spritzing Art Anthology’s Colorations and then spritzing with water to lighten the colors.

I love Art Anthology’s Bubbles Stencil,  you can tilt it sideways and it gives a whole new look!

After I used texture paste and Art Anthology’s Bubbles stencil I sprinkled glitter on before heat drying it,  it gives it a sparkle to the background!

I gave the dragfly a couple sprays of Art Anthology’s Colorations and then a spritz or two of water,  it gave me the look I was going for.

 

If you ever doubt using new ink sprays just grab a piece of scrap paper and test it out!  We have a bunch of Snapguide and YouTube Tutorials using Art Anthology products!

Steampunk heart canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with a new mixed media project using AA paints, inks and stencil ! I called it “La fabrique a bonheur” (hapiness manufacture).

 

Layering the different mediums was the key to obtain this rusty look. I used two Velvet in Tango and Portobello, and three Colorations sprays, in Juicy, French Toast and Siesta Key.

Texture is created with special powder and heat, dimension by layering cardboard gears and grunge board strips.

You can watch the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, as well as other tutorials…

Thank you for reading this post today. See you next month for another tutorial…

Here is the list of AA products to create this canvas :

Thankful for You by Toni

Happy Thanksgiving y’all. Hope everyone is having a wonderful month. Today I’m here to share a frame I made featuring my sweet baby boy, Bubba. dsc08630

With the use of my wonderful Art Anthology’s Minx Shimmering Inks I was able to transform some $1.00 store foliage into a pretty fall frame for my desk. dsc08545 dsc08552

 

 

 

 

The wonderful texture achieved with AA’s Mud Texture Paste combined with seed beads and the gorgeous Dimensional paints in so many vibrant colors, made it easy to get the look I was going for.

With a little gesso to prime even the hardest surfaces to cover, the Minx Shimmering Inks colors these butterflies perfectly.

The leaves in the corner were colored also with the Minx and then embossed 3 times with Ultra Embossing Enamel which provided a glass-like effect… So pretty. From a broken down frame to a new addition for my decor, this project was messy, fun, and effective. Hope you have been inspired. And for your enjoyment, feel free to grab yourself a cup of hot cider sit back and relax while you view my Snapguide tutorial below. Also below,  are all the pretty products used from Art Anthology. Many blessings to you and your family at this holiday season.

Time flies mini canvas with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends ! Irit is here again and this time I made a mini card size canvas with some gorgeous Art Anthology products.

This project was made because of a stencil. When I see Time Flies words I make a Mixed Media project that is all about time using clocks and gears and things that are connected to a time issue. But then working on 7*5” canvas doesn’t leave you a lot of space to add many things over. So I just add mediums and textures and Art Anthology products are just perfect for this matter.

Here how the finished project looks:

And as few close- ups to show the texture and the painted parts:
