Bee Happy door hanger

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here with my new Mixed Media tutorial and this time we are going to make a Happy door hanger or as you can see it is ” Bee Happy” one.

As you can see I made it in bee’s yellow and just black and white and used tons of Art Anthology products.

The main images and the sentiment were stamped and heat embossed. My tip for you: if you wish to use mists over stamped images first heat emboss them! So easy and keeps the images untouched even with the heavy spraying.

So here are some close- ups for you to see and then there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial as always.

 

 

Here is our Snapguide tutorial:

By The Sea – Lighthouse Frame

Hello creative friends,¬†glad to be sharing¬†another DT post. For today’s project¬†I made a mixed media, somewhat¬†altered lighthouse frame. I decided not to add a photo yet (needing one that’s just right), instead I removed the glass piece¬†and replaced it with pattern paper and a¬†wooden sentiment, I saved the glass piece¬†for when I¬†add¬†the¬†photo later.

I love¬†playing with¬†lots of texture, color and embellishments.¬† I used a combination of Art Anthology Colorations color sprays –¬†Sandcastle, Warm, Waimea Bay and Peacock Feathers, Velvet Mediums –¬†Kona, Fiji and¬†Limeaid, Sorbet medium –¬†Kenyan Copper,¬†Gemstone medium –¬†Amber and Stone Effects –¬†Bone. Everything came together so nicely, it’s a great way to relax and have some¬†fun.

Hope you feel inspired to create your own… you will find a step by step tutorial with a complete list of supplies posted below.

Enjoy…

Smile : Mixed Media canvas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first July tutorial made with Art Anthology products.
 Irit is here again and this time I made a small, card sized, altered Mixed Media canvas in a dark , but yet shabby style.
The background was made with Art Anthology stencils and dimensional paints and also it was made over black gesso you can see the shiny purple paint seen over the canvas.

The flowers cluster was misted with black Colorations spray and then painted with a few other AA paints.
The die cut cardstock pieces were also painted to fit the colors of the project.
Two other pieces added here are the clay mold fairy and a chipboard title ; both were painted to get the colors desired for the finished project.

As always you can see the full Snapguide  step by step tutorial HERE:

Rusty vintage frame by Marleen.

Hi, Marleen here with a new project.
I altered a frame. In the Netherlands we have Kings-day and the whole country is celebrating.
Everybody can sell anything you want. So the country is one big flea market the end of April. So I bought myself a 50ct frame!

My goal was to get a really old rusty effect with all the Art Anthology  mediums and inks and I love the final result!

Of course I made a Snapguide tutorial for you!

Life in color art page tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second June tutorial post here on Art Anthology blog.

This is Irit here from Irit Shalom’s Designs and I made a cute, summer art page for you to see and maybe to copy.

 

This is a new art page I made with my new (lost and found on the way) Art Anthology art supplies.

I used three new stencils, tons of new Velvet paints, a few new Colorations sprays and some  pretty old chipboards to make this rainbow colored art page.

And you just need to arrange those colors to make your own rainbow, as I did here!

Art journal with face stencil

Hello crafters !

Did you see the moodboard this month ? It’s full of interesting textures and colors !

The creamy gold and copper, the splash of blue and waves inspired me to create an art journal spread with a face stencil. It has a mermaid vibe, with a background looking like rusty metal decorations under the sea and mermaid eye deep as the sea.

I use several stencil by Art Anthology in these pages : Let’s face it for the girl, Dot matrix, Lotus and Inspired grunge for the background, plus Expressions stencil for the journaling.

Lot of mediums and inks here ! Sandcastle Colorations spray for the base, then Peacock Feathers and Siesta Key before playing with the stencils and the mediums in Amber, Mayan gold, Lagoon and Kenyan copper.

I also add somme drop of Radiance Minx and Gold Dust Minx for the rusty look.

Want to learn more about how I created these art journal pages ? Watch my complete video tutorial on AA YouTube channel :

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope the moodbard and the DT projects will help you create something ! If you are looking for more inspiration, try the AA Instagram account or AA Pinterest boards

See you 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
