Using Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology to create a camo canvas with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I want to share a new canvas with you. I used the Colorations Sprays to create a camo looking background and I love it 🙂

I used parts of the Lotus Stencil for the focal point in the background and to add some extra texture. By using the Minx inks to outline the Lotus flower it now looks like its shining even brighter.

I always like to add hidden interest to a project. The Dazzle paint is perfect for that as it dries clear and just leaves this amazing sparkle.

But now to the process. Here is my video that is showing how I put everything together. Enjoy 🙂

These are the supplies I used:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little canvas 🙂

Imagine… your bookmarks !

Hello there, it’s Valerie !

Back to papercrafts after few off-the-page projects ! This time I created for you few bookmarks, using Colorations sprays, mediums and stencil from the Art Anthology store :

The chevron pattern came from the Chevron stencil used with Lagoon Velvet medium. I just added few stamps and washi tapes to complete the design.

I obtain the background by spraying Siesta Key and Peacock Feathers. I added the washi tapes before stenciling, and then Stamped in black ink. The Gold Metal Effects higlight some of the stamped patterns. I also sprayed some Gilded Gold Fairy Dust to add some shine to the project.

Once again I used a white gel pen to give dimension to the stamps. You can see the entire process on video (here or on the Art Anthology channel) :

Thank you for stopping by today ! Hope to see you soon…

Be in love with your life art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m back with a new art journal page using the amazing Art Anthology Velvet paints, Colorations sprays and a few stencils. If you remember from my last post, I reorganized my craft room and while doing that I found a few scrap pieces of paper. I’m supper happy that I found them, because I immediately had some ideas for art journal pages.

I found some elegant ladies as rub-ons and wanted to create a fancy art journal page for one of them. You can watch the process in my new video. This time it doesn’t have a voice over, but it should be pretty much self-explanatory:

When I was done with adding color to my page, I thought it looked like an underwater scene. So I grabbed some sea horses and se stars that I had lying around and added them to the page.

Of course the page needed a sentiment and what fit better than the big Soliloquy stencil paired with some other phrases?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I did creating it 🙂

Art Journal Page with Josefine

The world is my playground art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I wanted to create a blue colored page. Not because I felt blue, but because the current mood board has so many pretty blue shades. I skipped the orange and replaced with some rust though.

A few days ago I reorganized my craft room and found a couple of scraps that I really wanted to incorporate somehow. So I decided to paint a blue background, add some texture and then use the scraps for this page.

I love that it is so simple to create a nicely blended background with the art Anthology paints. It always looks like I know what I’m doing 😛

If you want to see how I put everything together, here’s a video tutorial for you:


Here are a few more close ups for you.

Altered sketchbook by Valerie

Hi everyone !

Another mixed media project (I do love creating them!) with an inexpansive sketchbook as base…

I made clay embellishments and use flowers, metal embellishments and buttons as well to adhere on the sketchbook before covering everything with black gesso.

When everything was dry, I re-colored the project with Vegas Gold and Wisteria Sorbet, and Rose Velvet, then added some Gilded Gold Fairy Dust and Plush Colorations spray.

The other additions to this project were cheesecloth and microbeads, as well as wood letters for the title.

If you like to learn more about the process of this project, take a loo at my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel, where you can find other wonderful tutorials.

Thank for stopping by and for your time reviewing this project ! Have a wonderful week end filled with creativity !

Song of Ice and Fire with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends ! Irit is here and I welcome you to my last post as Art Anthology Design Team member.

It was a great year with Art Anthology, but even good things finally end and we move to another adventures.

So today I am going to share an art page made as my tribute to the most known  TV show- Game of Thrones.

Actually I am more book lover than TV lover, so I made it as a ” Song of Ice and Fire” page with the dragon as the main image. Also I added some film strips around, but it was to add some interest and depth to the page with more layers added to main embellishments cluster.

As you can see that background was made over the Mixed Media cardstock with two Art Anthology stencils and texture paste.

Then two embossing glitters were added over the wet paste and heat embossed to get this distressed look of the glittered paste.

As always I have a full step by step tutorial made with Snapguide HERE :
Check out How to Make Dragon Mixed Media Art Page by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

And again, as always, here is a full Art Anthology products list:

Lagoon Velvet paint

Mermaid Sorbet paint

Black Jacket Leather Sorbet

Mardi Gras Velvet

Siesta Key Colorations spray

Plush Colorations Spray

Wimea Bay Colorations spray

Wild Orchid Colorations Spray

Chevron Stencil 6*9

Industrial stencil 6*9

So see you on the web and maybe in person some day when I come to CHA. In the meantime- enjoy your crafting with Art Anthology as much I do.

De-light-ed : a scrapbooking layout by Valerie

Hello crafty people !

I have a new layout to share with you today, with a design inspired by the subject of the picture I choose… When I was in Istanbul, I stopped by a lamp merchant in the Grand Bazaar. He sold beautiful lamps made of colored glass, and I did not resist to take a picture…

I built this layout like a mosaic, mixing classic designs and modern color blocks, as Istanbul appears to me, a mix of ancient history and appetite for modernity. Take a look at the result :

On a green paper, I started to built the background with brown ink and stamps, with the chain stamp and flourish designs looking like chandeliers.

Keyhole stencil and Copper Metal Effect medium added some dimensions to the page.

The color blocks were created with ink and heavy white cardstock. The color are : Colorations spray Indigo (blue), Colorations spray Patience (pink) and Radience Minx Shimmering ink (orange).

I also spray Sandcastle Colorations over the background before adhering the blocks.

If you want to learn more about how I created this layout, watch the video here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today ! I hope you enjoy this new project as much as I enjoyed creating it for you !

See you soon for another whatever-I-wil-make !

Halloween Canvas

Ooozing eyeballs Halloween canvas with Josefine

How about a mixed media Halloween canvas with oozing eyeballs and poison paste? Art Anthology products are perfect for drippy backgrounds and thick texture alike. And it’s still enough time to create some more spooky things – despite all the Christmas decoration that is already up in my grocery store.

I’m a fan of these smaller, card sized projects and love to decorate a canvas like that. The smaller area makes it easier to get started, but also challenges you to “organize” your space better. So let me show you what I did with this little canvas.

And? Oozing enough? 😛
I’m impressed with the stone effect paste. Even though I mixed with one of the Sorbet’s it dried in a neat texture.

Thanks for stopping by!
