Today/ Mixed Media Layout

Good morning! Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using a variety of mixed media mediums. For this layout, I used Velvet Dimensional Paint (Fiji, Tuxedo). I also used Sorbet in Vegas Gold…PRETTY!!! And I used Salmon and Waimea Bay Colorations Sprays. Love how vibrant these sprays are. GORGEOUS.

To begin, I sprayed the Colorations sprays onto white cardstock. Then, I used the Pebbles stencil and the Vegas Gold Velvet Paint to create a fun patterned at the bottom of the layout.

I dry brushed the Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint all over the top half of the layout. I had a general idea as to what I wanted this layout to look like and it turned out perfectly.

Once the paint was dry, I sprayed the Waimea Bay Colorations Spray all across the top of the layout and let it drip down. I did this two times. Then I used a heat gun to dry the ink.

I used the Take Flight stencil and the Tuxedo Velvet to paint the birds. Love these little guys!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today. It means so much to me!

Colorful tags with Daniëlle

Hi there everyone!

Daniëlle here with some colorful tags for you today!

I created them in a couple of easy steps:

  1. Add color with Velvets. Paint your tags.

2. Add structure using different colors of velvet and stencils.

3. While your tags are drying, color some die-cuts using colorations spray.

4. Add some stamping to the colored die-cuts and glue them to your tags.

5. To give my tags some sparkle I applied some clear coats through the cracked stencil.

6. While everything is drying, I stamped some butterflies and colored them with sorbets.

Final step is to put everything together and add a text you like.

Here’s a list of products I used:

Velvet: Taffy, Tango, Gecko green, Fiji, Boysenberry, Dayglow yellow.

Stencils: Chasing butterflies, Twilight, Cracked.

Colorations: Plush, Glorious.

Sorbet: Seaserpent, Cayman, Summer yellow, Flamingo.

Clear coat: Dazzle, Linen.

I hope you like it! See you next time!

Mixed Media Embroidery Hoop by Toni

Hi everyone, today I have a fun altered project that you can create using fabric and Art Anthology’s products.  I started with my embroidery hoop with muslin material.  I added some texture paste through one of our stencils and then began adding my pretty colors of Sorbets, Velvets & Coloration Sprays. For some of my embellishments I used hot glue and used them in sea shell molds. Then I primed them with gesso and continued using the beautiful AA products on them. Fun summery project, I hope you enjoyed and for your pleasure I have a video tutorial below.

“Life Began In A Garden” by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new design team project for Art Anthology.  I have always loved rusty things , antiques, worn looking items, so it doesn’t surprise me that my most favorite thing to do regarding ART is making something look old, vintage, aged.  I started with a T!m Holtz Vignette and with the help of Art Anthology products and some crackle varnish, this little project came to be.  The video below shows how I created a peeled paint look using some of our paints. I used Stone Effects-Bone on the window to provide texture. Florals were added to the sides of the vignette. After the peeled paint technique, crackle varnish was then added and Coloration Sprays as well as Shine-Kelly were added for a wonderful old mossy look. Thank you for stopping by, be sure to take a moment to view the video below, and all the supplies used for Art Anthology are listed below. Have a wonderful week !
