Dreamer of Dreams Canvas by Toni

Hi artsy friends, it’s Toni here and I have for you a fun and funky canvas today, taking me back to my old macrame days in the 70’s thought I would create a fun dream catcher. Let’s get started.  We have some wonderful new stencils available in our store and today I used Twinkle Lights to create my background using Mud. Then sprayed with Colorations in Siesta Key and Glorious. Minx Shimmering Inks in Panache and Allure added some pretty shimmer. Shine paints in Canary, Teal and Onyx altered up my clay feathers.

I had fun revisiting my “hippie” era…lol and making this very simple dreamcatcher from an old plastic lid, twine and some beads.Hope you have enjoyed this and for your pleasure I have included for you a Snapguide tutorial below…… Peace

AA products used are :

Colorations – Siesta Key, Glorious

Minx- Panache, Allure

Shine – Onyx, Teal, Canary

Mud Paste

Stencil- Twinkle Lights

Polarized effect layout

Hello crafters !

I want to show you something I create on the Art Anthology cruise during a crop session. It’s a layout, where I used a picture of my daughter with polarized sunglasses, and I tried to recreate the polarized effect with AA mediums…

I am pretty satisfied with the result ! Strangely, using the same technique, I got two different tones with metal and chipboard/paper…

On the layout and the white gesso covered embellishments, I applied first a coat of Sandcastle Colorations spray, then few coats of Kona Velvet medium for the base.

Then I applied Mermaid Sorbet in the center, followed by a layer of Vegas Gold Sorbet. See the difference between the metal (flower, doilies and leaves) and the chipboard (title) or paper flowers ?

I made a quick video to show you how to create this polarized effect :

Thank you for stopping by today. Have fun with this new technique and see you soon…

Land Of The Free Journal Page by Toni

Hi everyone, it’s a new month and a new mood board here at Art Anthology and my design team inspiration was from the beautiful blues, reds and grays.

I created a two page journal layout. Sit back as I walk you through this fun process. Using painters tape, create strips across your pages. Using the Twilight stencil and Mud paste I added my stars to the corner of my journal page. Take your spatula and in waves add your texture paste to the uncovered portion of the strips. This will give the appearance of movement in your flag.  Allow your paste to dry completely.  I knew sprayng my strips would be easier but I didn’t have a vivid red so I took the Shine in Ruby and added it to a spray bottle with a little water and shook real good and sprayed away. Gorgeous color and coverage. Now I sprayed my stars with Indigo Colorations Spray.  Heat set all your sprays. Remove your painters tape and reveal your white strips. Taking a fine point Sharpie I wrote the lyrics to Oh Beautiful. Last but not least I used the Metal Effects in Silver with my finger and ran it over all the high parts of the Mud paste on the stars and strips. Then added my title “Land Of the Free Home of the Brave” . Hoping you are inspired by my pages and don’t forget to play along with us and create using our mood board and post it to our Facebook HERE. 

Here is a list of the products used for my journal pages.

Stencils- Twilight 

Shine- Ruby 

Colorations- Indigo 

Metal Effects – Silver 

Mud Texture Paste

Friendship card with the New Shines

Hi there !

Did you try the new Shine mediums already ? The colors are so bright I had to use them to create a peppy Friendship card !

I created my background with the Sand Stone Effect medium and the new Twinkle Lights stencil on a white paper sprayed with Sandcastle Colorations spray.

Then I stamped the flowers and sentiment with black ink, and colored the flowers with the new Shine medium in Ruby Red, Canary Yellow, Sunrise Orange and Kelly Green.

Some fussy cut, few more Ruby red strokes, and my card was done !

Here is my video tutorial to guide you step-by-step through my creative process :

Thank you for your time reviewing this project. I have a wonderful day and see you soon !

Adventure awaits you, be fearless!

Hi Art Anthology fans!

Daniëlle here with a project for you. I created 2 tags this time:

Here’s how I created them:

First I sprayed with my colorations sprays. I used Siesta key, timeless and plush.

Next I used Mardi gras velvet and the ringlets stencil to create texture:

After this I used raider colorations spray and plush colorations spray with some background stamps to add more dimension to my tags:

To finish my background I also used the cracked stencil and clear coat linen. This creates a shiny, glittery extra texture:

Now, while my tags are drying, I stamp some images I like and colored them using Black leather jacket, Cayman, Mi Bella and wisteria sorbet:

I finish my project by cutting out the colored images and pasting them to my tags. I also added text stickers and ofcourse some nice ribbons.

Some close ups so you can see the colors and texture better:

I hope you enjoyed my project, see you next time!

List of products I used:

Colorations: Timeless, Plush, Siesta Key

Velvet: Mardi gras

Stencils: Ringlets, Cracked

Clear coat: Linen

Sorbet: Black leather jacket, Cayman, Mi Bella, Wisteria

Sun Kissed by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new project inspired by our pretty moodboard for summer.  I’m calling it  “Sun Kissed”.

The flowers, bright colors and ocean gave me some wonderful inspiration to alter a wooden tag that I had purchased on sale at Michaels. Lots of fussy cutting with the addition of seed beads and prills for texture to the flowers. Art Anthology has fantastic mixed media products that are so user friendly….. please don’t be afraid to dig into these mediums. Combined with Mudd paste, our stencils and a combination of different Colorations sprays the backdrop for my pretty summer piece came together. 

I hope this has inspired you a bit how to use our moodboard to get those creative juices flowing. I’m wishing you a Sunkissed Summer season.  xoxoxo
