Creating cards with Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology

Using Colorations Spray Differently with Josefine

Hi, Josefine here, with two colorful cards that I created using the Colorations Sprays in a different way. I really enjoy the Art Anthology Colorations Sprays. They are so vibrant and yummy. That’s why I was wondering, if I could use them for more than “just” spraying the ink onto something.

And I love the effect and how the cards turned out!

But back to the beginning and what I actually did. I didn’t want to create a huge mess, so I used some pipettes to get the ink out of the bottles and onto my craft mat. From there it was easy to dab my paper into the ink and create this splattered background. But see for yourself how I did it:

So, what do you think? Worth creating some more cards using this technique?

Here are the supplies I used:

Altered art with Art Anthology?!

A little gift .. .as a thank you to a friend.
The feathers are from chickens from this friend.
I made this during our holiday… with found feathers at our accomodation.
I scored the bread board and the pebbles during one of our outings to thrift stores. 

Easy to do .. on any surface or any substrate. 

I (Ellie), would love it if you would take the time to have a look at the step-by-step just for you AA fans in the Snapguide!

Playing with Colorations Inks

Ellie Knol again today,
showing a way to play with Colorations Shimmering Inks. 

………………

By misting the Colorations on an acrylic block and ‘stamping’ that onto your cardstock….

….you get beautiful washes on your background.
TIP… Leave the block on the cardstock for a few minutes for it to be able to absorb the moisture.

****

Stamp with a colored ink.

Color the image with Colorations Shimmering inks
and splatter some ink as well. Stamps a script with a matching colored ink. 


Sponge over a stencil with distress inks.
Finish it off with a script and white heat embossing.

….for more pictures and step-by-step please have a look at the Snapguide tutorial I’ve created for you!

Wood Canvas with 3D Bird Nest

Hi everyone 🙂

today I’m sharing a 3D canvas with you. I found this bird in the home decor section and just had to pair it with Art Anthology paints, sprays and inks. It is incredible that you can use the same paint as the base, for dimension and as finishing touches. It always surprises me how they turn out and that it just works.

For this canvas I decided to pick a green color base. This way the wood canvas is the tree and the green color is representing the leaves (or similar :P).

So I started with prepping the surface with different shades of green. Then I adhered the nest and added several gold shimmer effects. But see for yourself:

What do you think? Did the bird get a nice and shiny home or should she move? 😉

For this project I used:

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:

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

The making of … a booklet

Goodmorning, Ellie Knol here…
gorgeous weather in Holland at the moment..

Today I’d like to share the making of a booklet,
the covers particularly…
…using Colorations spray, Copper Stone Effects and Tuxedo Velvet paint…..

..although I intended to make 4 cards with embossing in combination with the beautiful sprays and paints from Art Anthology.

****
The very early stage of the background – heat embossed in clear on a with-clocks-embossed watercolor paper.

I used corrugated cardboard for the front and back cover. I ended up adhering the backgrounds to these.
I

The Copper Metal Effects adds to the stenciled words (Tick Tock stencil).

Time to assemble…

….the finished project. The inside pages have been cut to size from a not-used-but-second-hand photo album…

It will make for a nice and personal gift..
..to be used as a booklet for photographs, art journaling or maybe just to make some notes.

Did not know I was going to end up with this 🙂
LOVE it…
