Coloring Stamped Images with Karan

Hi Friends and welcome back today.  Its Karan hosting the blog here at Art Anthology.
I love the mediums they have and always wanted to use them on my Heartfelt Creations stamped flowers and leaves, so i set out to do that for this project.
Using water color paper, here is what i came up with for todays project.

 

what a great way to color stamped leaves and flowers and its so quick too.
Just by brushing over y stamped images with the colorations spray makes it pretty quick and easy too.

Altered Steampunk Lamp by Toni

Hi crafty peeps, it’s Toni here with a lamp I altered for my craftroom. I purchased this simple lamp at a decor store for $25.00.

I really liked the bones of it but I knew it needed to be spruced up.  I also got these water goggles at the Dollar store and knew they would were intended for this project. 

I had a difficult time getting good photos of this project so I hope you bear with me.

I applied all my old metal pieces that I have collected over the years from garage sales and junk stores, as well as some chipboard pieces, chain, buttons, and plumbers pipes from the hardware store. The goggles were altered with hot glue, Art Anthology’s paint as well as alcohol inks. Art Anthology’s Texture Paste Set in Rust along with Mud Texture Paste helped me accomplish this rusty piece and provided some wonderful textures. Here is a photo out in the light, hopefully you can get a different look at this piece. 

And now I have a new lamp for my craftroom. I hope you have been inspired and you have enjoyed my new project. For your pleasure below is a Snapguide tutorial. xoxo Toni

Altered tissue box

Hello !

Valerie there today with another altered project ! I moved recently and found a sad wood tissue box in one of my cabinet ready to be upgraded ! Look at the result first :

The box was covered in lace, with lot of embellishments like flowers, buttons, pearls, stones, and chipboards on the top, then covered with white gesso before adding some colors…

I used two type of mediums in this project : Colorations sprays and Sorbet mediums. The Colorations sprays are Siesta Key and Peacock Feathers.

I used the Sorbet dimensional mediums in Cayman, Mermaid and Vegas Gold as touch ups with a small brush.

Love this color gradient ! It’s soft and vibrant at the same time !

If you would like to know more about my creative process in this project, you can watch the video tutorial here (but it’s also on the Art Anthology YouTube channel with a lot of others projects !) :

Thank you for stopping by ! Hope to see you very soon with another tutorial…

Have a great day !

Altered Box For Home Decor by Toni

Toni here today to share with you an altered project I created to hold my essential oils I use to diffuse at home.Started with this paper mache box I purchased awhile back at Michaels. Starting off with AA’s Mud Paste run through a couple of a gorgeous stencils (listed below) for texture to the box. Then the addition of a few metal pieces. Then I took some white mulberry flowers and painted them in the colors above and dipped them in melted UTEE to give them a porcelain effect. Before adhering to the box I spritzed Colorations Sedona & Granny Smith on the top for shadows and a pretty shimmer.

Pictured above the pretty texture provided by the stencils. Florals were added to the top and my title to the front of the box and now my essential oils have a new home. Hope this has provided some inspiration to decorate your containers for your home. Put that special “YOU” touch on your items.

Below is a list of AA products used and also a Snapguide tutorial for your pleasure….. Peace

Mud Paste

Metal Effects-Copper

Colorations – Sedona, Granny Smith

Playing With AA’s Products & Beeswax

Hi everyone… I know life is busy but hope you all are able to fit a little bit of creativity in your week. Today I’m here to share a couple different mixed media techniques. They’re not new but sometimes it’s fun to revisit old processes.  Let’s play with texture paste, paints and beeswax. Using a T!m Holtz mini clipboard let’s begin to alter this by mixing a bit of craft sand in Mud Texture Paste and then I ran it through 3 different stencils (listed below). After dry, I prepped the surface with white gesso . Then a coat of AA’s Lava added to the entire piece and wait till it’s almost dry but still a bit tacky and using a paper towel press here and there and it removes chunks of the paint to provide a chipped paint effect. Then using AA’s Rust Texture Set sprinkled in with some craft sand for more texture , The Rust set definitely has some grit already I just wanted a bit more chunkiness. Start adding that to your foundation spritzing it with water to cause running and blending. You can see the sand texture in the above photo.  Next up using Metal Effects Silver, using my finger I brushed it here and there over the high parts of the foundation to bring out a look of metal. Then gather your ephemera, metal pieces, film strip, title and apply to the surface. Don’t forget to distress the edges of your collage items as it’s always in the details (I always say grungier the better).  Then last, let’s melt some beeswax and give about 3 coats to the surface. The look of the wax causing a subtle matt vintage look which I adore. I would love for you to join me with a tutorial on my step x step process of this piece below.  Thank you for looking and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook so you can share your creativity with us as well. Have a spectacular week and hoping you “Find joy in the ordinary”.

The following AA products were used :

Mud Texture Paste

Stencils- Got Your Number, Mechanical, Tick Tock
