Daniëlle here with a quick & fun project! I created these tags for you to show you how our gorgeous yummy mixed media products react to different coloured backgrounds. So I created a black background with black gesso and a white one with white gesso. The wonderful Art Anthology products did the rest of the magic:
You can find a step by step tutorial in the snapguide I created for you:
And here are some close ups of my work:
These are the products that I used:
Stencil: Diamond grunge
Metal effects: Bronze
Gemstones: Blue Topaz
Ellie Knol here again, yes, sadly for the last time now, as I step down from the design team after being here for a year..
…but don’t be sad, there are very talented new design team members already here now!
Thanks Stayce for having me, I really had fun working (playing) with your beautiful product! They will stay in my stash and I am sure I will USE them!
This time I chose to alter a book into a bookbox. It was a looooooot of work!
I gave myself some homework: and I must say: mission accomplished…
I wanted to know whether I like to work on a white or black surface better?! I still don’t know the answer.. I like them both.
Some photo’s of the project: I had fun!
Hi, Josefine is back with a new art journal page. This time I wanted to test how the Velvet paints react on a black surface. As you might know the Velvet paints are translucent so I was hoping for a fun effect and I was not disappointed.
My tutorial video shows exactly how I added the colors to the black background and what I did to create the ocean scene for the little mermaid.
I hope you enjoyed my art journal page and feel inspired to get your own paints out 🙂
Don’t forget to share your projects in the Art Anthology Facebook group.
Hi and welcome back!
Today I’m sharing a small project with you using a piece of birch wood and Art Anthology paints to create a wall hanger. Even though it’s a small piece of art, I had a lot of fun creating it!
I prepared a video tutorial for you, showing you how I created the image on the birch wood:
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial 🙂
Do you ever paint on wood? I love how the Art Anthology paints turn out! They have a very distinct sheen to them. It’s hard to explain, but I encourage you to give it a try and see for yourself 🙂
Hello creative friends, glad to be sharing another DT post. For today’s project I made a mixed media, somewhat altered lighthouse frame. I decided not to add a photo yet (needing one that’s just right), instead I removed the glass piece and replaced it with pattern paper and a wooden sentiment, I saved the glass piece for when I add the photo later.
I love playing with lots of texture, color and embellishments. I used a combination of Art Anthology Colorations color sprays – Sandcastle, Warm, Waimea Bay and Peacock Feathers, Velvet Mediums – Kona, Fiji and Limeaid, Sorbet medium – Kenyan Copper, Gemstone medium – Amber and Stone Effects – Bone. Everything came together so nicely, it’s a great way to relax and have some fun.
Hope you feel inspired to create your own… you will find a step by step tutorial with a complete list of supplies posted below.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
I’m back from a break and full energy to play with the Art Anthology products.
With this page I used the Fragments stencil from the NEW stencil collection,
so I hope to inspire you all !!

Hugs and have a creative day 😉
I played, yes .. and I had fun..!!
Ellie Knol here today…
I decided to just go with the flow… and see where that would take me. I grabbed all sorts of colors that I thought would be nice together, greens, blues, oranges and a red, velvets, sorbets and a gemstones.
Here you can see the first 3 greens: Leaf Sorbet, Limited Velvet and Emerald Gemstones, scraping a tiny bit randomly over the page to make transparant layers. Don’t try to cover the whole of it with each color, just here and there, and sometimes overlapping. After this step I’ve used lots more colors. For that, go see the Snapguide at the bottom of the post.

Those eyes really are an eye-catcher on the page – LOVE it!

Art Anthology Products Used:
Kathy here today to share a three canvas set that is inspired by similar ones I have seen on Pinterest lately with lots of layers of shimmer and texture in linear patterns. Each canvas is 4″ x 12″ canvases.
Art Anthology paints are very dimensional and work really well for creating layers of texture without adding additional mediums. Let me show you how I created my project.
Art Anthology Stucco is a product that acts much light joint compound. It doesn’t have a creamy consistency like Art Anthology Mud. It creates a more course texture and adds lots of stiff peaks that are emphasized by the black glaze in this project.
To make the pieces more cohesive together, I continued the texture and pattern on the edges. I wanted to achieved the feeling that the color is spilling off the canvas. What do you think?

Look at the crackle created using the Kroma crackle medium. It is subtle but adds so much depth.
Now it’s time for you to go create some texture and shine! Happy creating!

Hi crafty friends! Kathy here today with a video showing how I created a canvas using the intuitive painting process. Recently I shared in an online course, Wanderlust, where Flora Bowley demonstrated her intuitive painting technique. Her fun and forgiving approach to painting is based on the notion that “You don’t begin with a preconceived painting in mind; you allow the painting to unfold.” This is a transformational approach that connects mind + spirit, and allows expressive paintings to emerge naturally.
I really love the results of this canvas and the process of making it. I hope that the photos pick up the shimmer that resulted from using the Gemstone mediums. If you want intense shimmer, you must get Gemstones!
Thank you for visiting the blog today!
