Velvet: Beyond the Reef, Sorbet: Walnut. And the third color is the Colorations Sedona which we already have but matches perfectly with the Walnut.
A perfect combination to create something aged looking.
Then we also have NEW stencils!! I used this one:

So I started in my Art Journal but after finishing I saw that the video wasn’t good! 🙁
So a short description of what I did: *Add pieces of old bookpaper to the page with gelmedium.
*wash the page with a little gesso and water.
*Add with the stencil Velvet Beyond the Reef and cotton(blend together).
*After drying put the stencil in the same spot and brush over the Sorbet Walnut.
* Take of the stencil and water the Sorbet, the pigments will spread.
*Sponge down all the edges with Sedona.
*The tag is done with the same stencil and Sedona.
*Spray(everything except the photo) with Fairy Dust Gilded Gold.
*Add splashes Minx Stargazer and Decadent.
* Finish it with splashes gesso.
Valentine’s day is around the corner and you’re so not ready ? I have a new project for you, an heart altered box :
It is a fun mixed media project to create for your Valentine, and you can filled it with chocolates, candies or lingerie if you want !
I started with a cardboard box and the Lotus stencil with Mud Paste (you can use heavy gesso or texture paste too). Once dried, I added some lace clay embellishments I prepared in advance (but you can you chipboard or wood ones) and covered everything with white gesso.
The box was then painted with Rose Velvet medium and set aside to dry… Meanwhile, I did covered all my embellishments with white gesso (paper flowers, metal leaves and flowers, clay flowers and letters).
We are at the end of August, back-to-school is already behind us, it’s time to dive into books… Wait what ? Yes books… You know I’m talking about mixed media, right ? My project for today is an altered wooden box, in shape of a book ! And what did I do with it ? Make it look like a leather covered book !
The technique I used to create this leather look is imprint a rubber stamp into Mud Texture paste ! You just have to apply a layer of Mud paste, let it dry almost competely and then press the stamp over the paste and remove carefully…
Once dry, you can paint it as you want. Here I used Chocolate Sorbet (you can also use the Kona Velvet) and Cocoa Shine to give this old leather look.
And I used Teal Velvet and Copper Metallic from the Patina Texture set to give an antique look at my metal embellishments.
This imprint technique is a real deal ! It does look like emboss leather !
As always, I made a video tutorial for you to follow this particular technique and enjoy the transformation of a plain wood box into an leather like book…
Thank you for stopping by the blog today ! I hope you liked this new project… See you soon for another one !
Hello everyone, Marleen here with a mini-book tutorial for you.
My inspiration came from everywhere!! Do you remember my earlier post about the lace book cover I made?? Well I promised you to show the inside later on. Guess what, the cover was too small for all those pages.
So I made a bigger cover now and finished the inside pages!
I used many many Art Anthology stencils you can find them all HERE.
In the Netherlands it’s warm weather now but 2 weeks ago it was freezing badly. Next weekend it will be cold again. I get crazy from that changing weather…. So recently I got a bad flu, so my inspiration is not what it suppose to be.
So I start with an Art Journal page. Simple but colorful.
In this Journal there are some burlap pages which I love!
HI Friends, its my turn today to host the blog here at Art Anthology. If you are like me, you have jars of embellishments and left over pieces from previous projects that you have tossed aside. I often store in mine in totes and pull them out to use them when i need something.
