Hi everyone, today we’re going to get a bit grungy. I purchased a frame at the dollar store and decided I wanted to alter it up. I first added some lace to the frame to give some pretty texture, then I primed the surface with gesso for all my sprays and paints I wanted to add. I’m not really a purple kind of girl, but sometimes it’s good to create with something out of your comfort zone… It helps you grow as a creative. This project is filled with layers of lace, mixed media products, papers and embellies. Just keep layering until you get the look you like… “It’s Artist’s Choice”. I will have a list of products used below. Take a ride to the dollar tree, see what they have that you can alter up. Have fun with your creativity ! For your enjoyment I have included a process video below. xoxo Toni
Daniëlle here with a fun series of tags for you today!
I love to use stamps in my projects and so I created a couple of tags to give to friends. I used lots of Art Anthology mediums, colorations and stencils for this project. Here is a snapguide tutorial for you, so you can create along with me:
Hi everyone, Toni here with a heartfelt project, dedicated to a very dear friend that I lost almost 2 years ago. The image on the front of this tag was actually the last card I received from her for my birthday. I thought this would be a nice way to keep this treasure. This wooden tag was primed first with white gesso and then collaged with book pages and scrapbook paper. Then I applied black modeling paste through one of Art Anthology’s NEW stencils Multi Damask. Then with the help from Art Anthology’s Rust and Patina Texture Set I was able to alter the heart and edges of the tag. Colorations Sprays were used to dye the seam binding at the top of the tag. For your pleasure I have included a process video and there is also a list of supplies used below. Wishing you a bright and peaceful day !
March is the first month of Spring and I’m lucky enough to be in the South of U.S., so trees are blossoming and full of birds’ nests again (sorry for those under snow right now…). All this flowering inspired me to create my new art journal spread, using Colorations sprays, Velvet, Shine and Metal Effect…
With strips of asian journal paper over gessoed pages, I sprayed Peacock Feathers and Waimea bay Colorations to start my background.
Some round stamps and cherry blossom stamps in black complete this background, with few of the flowers colored with a white gel pen. I also added strokes of Cotton Velvet to add touches of light .
