Dragonfly canvas by Marleen.

Hi everybody , Marleen here with a canvas inspired by the new October moodboard! Sign up for the newsletter, you will  see a moodbaord there every month.

I was also inspired with something I saw on Facebook. Making molds from stamps and make you own embellishments from paperclay. That is so much fun!

So I took an old handcarved stamp and made a mold.

The rest you see in the Snapguide tutorial, I hope you get inspired!

Art Tags with ArtFoamies

Water Lilly Tag

Hi crafty friends! Kathy here to share a great product that works perfectly with Art Anthology Velvets, Sorbets and Minx Shimmering Inks. I have always liked foam stamps because they work so well with paint, but the designs left a lot to be desired.  Enter: ArtFoamies: Durable, bold foam stamps that come in dozens of designs, including exclusive designs by artist, Julie Fei Fan Balzer.

Balzer Design: Love Candy ArtFoamies

Balzer Design: Love Candy and Train Track ArtFoamies

Each foam stamp comes with a Stamp Buddy, a reusable and customizable stamp pad that fits the size of the stamp.

Time flies, so spend it wisely by Marleen.


Hi Art Anthology fans, Marleen here with a small canvas!
I was inspired by the fact that time goes fast… sometimes it worries me.
The last few months I realized that I have to enjoy every minute, before you know… pfff I don´t want to think about that. But since my dog died I´m very aware of the fact that time flies and I have to spend it wisely!

I made a canvas that shows a “time-hurricane”.
t is very difficult to make a good photo (because of the shimmers and the metal effects) but the video and detail pictures shows the metal looks perfect!
