Mixed Media cards tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second May Art Anthology post!

Today I am going to share a totally different project. This time I am going tom show you how you can use Art Anthology products to make two clean and simple cards using the very same stamp, two different Art Anthology stencils and Art Anthology paints and colorations.

 

As you can see these cards are made with the same stamped sentiment, but them the cardstock, colors and mediums made them totally different.

Here are the cards again:

Art Journal tutorial

Bonjour !

Valerie today to present you a new tutorial : a mixed media Art Journal !

I love create scrapbook pages, but sometimes I just want to put some colors on paper, add a little stamp or two, nothing fancy but satisfying for my creating cravings… Using paints, inks, stencils and stamps on a journal spread is perfect for this kind of mood ! And as I wanted some sunshine (that I didn’t have outside), my pages are very sunny…

Starting with Glorious Colorations spray and Allure Minx, I built the background with the Retro and Blocked stencils and the Juicy Colorations spray and Tango Velvet Dimensional medium.

Few stamps colored with Patience Colorations spray and Red Velvet Sorbet Dimensional medium, some alpha stickers and a black pen and you’re done!

As usual, you will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just watch it from here :

Thank you for stopping by the AA blog today, see you soon for my next project…

Altered butterfly chipboard album

Hello everyone !

Valerie there to present you a new project with Art Anthology inks and paints… This time I made a mini album with the cheap chipboard album you can find in the dollar section of craft shops, crackle paste and three Colorations sprays :

Each page was covered with white gesso, then white crackle paste, and once dry, painted with a brush and Colorations sprays in Glorious, Ink and Juicy.

The inks spraid into the crackles to create a beautiful effect different on each page.

The air dry key was covered with Reef Velvet paint. Few flowers and leaves and you’ll will not been able to say it was a cheap chipboard album !

To see how I turn a basic into a gorgeous album, watch the video on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just here :

Blooming altered box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Art Anthology post.

Spring is in the air and the best way to celebrate Spring is to make a bright and full of flowers project.

So this altered wooden box is my tribute to Spring and to everything new. Why is it everything new? As this is my very first time to make self made painted flowers and the very first time to use Foamiran to make those flowers.

I heard about this product that is actually the very thin foam. You can die cut it, paint it and then shrink it a bit with your heat gun to get those great, pretty much like real, flowers.

So for my very first attempt to use this foam I used Art Anthology paints and colorations to see if it works. And it worked just perfect.

Here are some close – ups to the flowers and then I made a tutorial to show you how you can make  the flowers and to embellish your $ store simple wooden box with these flowers.

 

 

 

You can see the full step by step tutorial here on a Snapguide:

All products are listed in the Snapguide and I made a full Art Anthology products list here in this post too:

Velvet: Limeaid,Cotton Candy

Sorbet: Leaf,Dazzle,Red Velvet

Stone Effect-Brick

Gemstones- Rhodolite

Colorations– Glorious, Timeless,Barbie,Juicy,Wild Orchid, Patience

Hope you like my project and see you soon again with a totally different Mixed Media creation.

Hello crafters !

If you haven’t decorate your house for Spring or Easter, I have an idea of project for you… an egg panel, filled with flowers, mixed media techniques and Art Anthology products of course ! It even matches our AA moodboard !

Take a look at the finished project :

The background of this egg panel was built with the Retro stencil and Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Sandcastle. The border was painted with Bronze Metal Effect dimensional paint, and the chipboards with Aloha Velvet paint.

Another close-up to see the beautiful effect created with the stencil :
