Recycled ” Dream” wall decoration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second April Art Anthology post.

 

This time I decided to show you how you can use your old and messy paint brushes and to make a lovely wall decoration using them with Art Anthology paints and a stencil.

As you can see the project base is made of 21 old paint brushes. My problem is that I never clean my brushes in a proper way. I do clean them here and there, but finally they are done and gone and the only thing you can make with them is an altered project.

Lucky me, I never buy the expensive brushes and those are all kind of a general $ store ones.

So then life gives you messy ” lemons” make a nice lemonade and in my case make a nice altered project.

Here you can see some close- ups to this project:

 

 

 

You can see the full step by step tutorial here on a Snapguide:

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 3 !

Hi you, Art Anthology fans… Ellie Knol here today! 

It’s good to be back after being to South Africa for a month…it wasn’t a holiday actually, but to bury my dear mom who passed away last month. I had nearly 2 weeks to sit with her and say goodbye. We were actually going to celebrate her 90 th birthday on the 19th, but she passed away 2 weeks before that. She had a fulfilled life… that’s for sure. 

****

AS PROMISED… I am not finished playing with the MINX inks yet! 

Today I chose to play with MINX inks in combination with a custom made ink pad. That’s really so much fun.. you MUST give it a try!

Please have a look at the Snapguide at the end of this post for step-by-steps of the 2 techniques in this post.

Technique ONE is using the inks on the pad for stamping.

Changing the above card with just a touch of 2 stencils.

******

Technique TWO is finishing up all that beautiful ink on your pad.

Using these backgrounds for one-of-a-kind cards.

Spring mixed media egg panel

Hello crafters !

If you haven’t decorate your house for Spring or Easter, I have an idea of project for you… an egg panel, filled with flowers, mixed media techniques and Art Anthology products of course ! It even matches our AA moodboard !

Take a look at the finished project :

The background of this egg panel was built with the Retro stencil and Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Sandcastle. The border was painted with Bronze Metal Effect dimensional paint, and the chipboards with Aloha Velvet paint.

Another close-up to see the beautiful effect created with the stencil :

I hope I gave you some inspiration to create something of your own. See you soon for another project…

How to Use a Face Stencil

Happy day to you and I’m happy to share with you again !

Do you have to have drawing skills to add a face to a page? NO, not if you have these beautiful Face-It stack of stencils from Art Anthology!

I’ve created a page to show that. I do need some practice with these faces though!

There is a tutorial at the end of this post, on Snapguide.

Stamped script to connect the face and the rest of the page.


Mayan Velvet Dimensional paint adds interest to the hearts of the flowers.


Some detail of the collage.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’d love to hear what you think of this page. I know I still have to practice!!
