Mixed Media Flower Canvas by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here and I’m having so much fun with some of Art Anthology’s NEW products… Have you checked out the store… WOW so many beautiful NEW stencils and so many gorgeous NEW colors of dimensional paints. I used the new Double Flower Stencil for this canvas. Prepped the canvas first with crackle medium and allowed it to dry. Then I created my flowers using a different method of appying the paint to the stencils. Instead of adding the medium and then swiping the excess, I applied the paints like frosting a cake and left it thick…. check out my video below for more details. Applying it this way provided a wonderful dimensional texture. And it’s so easy with Art Anthology’s gel based paints. Once the flowers were dry, I fussy cut all of them and adhered them to the canvas and highlighted the shadow areas with Minx Shimmering Inks. Finishing off the canvas with a dry brushing of Amber Sorbet (from the rust set). Hope you give this technique a try, so much fun experimenting with mixed media. Wishing you a day filled with love & peace.

For your pleasure I have included a video to share my creative process. xoxo Toni

Mixed Media Jewelry Christmas Tree by Toni

Merry Christmas everyone, today it’s my turn up on the blog with a new project for Art Anthology. I decided to recycle some old jewelry that I had in my stash and alter it into a Christmas tree decor piece. I used the backside of the canvas for the base of the project and started adding my pieces of jewelry in a shape of a tree, then primed the surface with white gesso. Then I started adding my pretty Coloration sprays and Minx Shimmering Inks.  For more added texture, I also added Mud Paste with art stones to the back of the tree. The outside frame was embellished using AA’s Ringlet stencil as well as Sorbet paints. All the products for AA used are listed below as well as a process video for your pleasure. Hope you have been inspired. Have a magical Christmas season !

Fall meet Winter canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with something different from what I’m usually creating… it’s a canvas, to show you that you can paint with gel mediums as well as if it’s was acrylic, even if like me you’re not a painter !

After covering my canvas with white gesso, I started by applying grey (I used 50 shades but you can use Pewter) and Silver Metal Effect all over the canvas, then adding touches of red Desire Velvet with a small brush, using something water to dilute the color.

Then I added touches of Gold Metal Effect, Tango Velvet and Portobello Velvet to create different shades of leaves.

The trees are drawn with Tuxedo Velvet medium, with brushes of Onyx Shine. Few more brushes of Cotton Velvet to powder the landscape and I was done.

You should give it a try, it’s fun to create a canvas without pressure (we are not looking to create a masterpiece after all), and I have a little video tutorial to help you start with blank canvas by showing you how I did this one :

Thank you for your time, I hope this post will give give you some inspiration to create a canvas of your own.

See you soon with 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!?
