HI Friends, Its Karan Gerber here with you today. After being on a few cruises i just love the look of portholes and although i didnt have a porthole to alter, i thought i could maybe create something similar and share it with my crafty friends.
Here is what i came up with, i will share a few detail images then you have the chance to check out my Snapguide tutorial below. Have fun 😀
I started with a 5×7 canavs from the dollar store. I had some embellishments like the resin frame and some metal clock pieces and wooden gears also from the dollar sttore
Hello friends and welcome to the blog today. Its Karan sharing a project with you today and I am sharing with you a altered journal cover. The journal is a canvas based one and was in my stash, i have a few of these in my stash actually, so you will likely see a few covers coming in the next 6 months. I have had these in my collection for years, so im thinking they might be discontinued.Here is what i put together for todays project
Its Karan here today, to share with you my first post and first project here on the Art Anthology Blog. I am pretty excited to share this first one with you. I created a vintage clock using the assemblage clock from Tim Holtz.
The clock itself, comes pretty plain and quite shiny, and looks like this, it does have a removable back and a glass front. I kept the glass front on, but removed the back during the altering process.
I created a snapguide for you to view some of the steps, I need to figure out a video setup so and as soon as i figure that out, i hope to be doing videos instead of snapguides.
Here are some detail images, i love how this turned out and im loving the stone effects and Minx. Never mind the Sprays and, oh wait, i love it all, LOL!!
i have quite a collection of metal embellishments and pulled a few out that i felt would work for this project. You can seriously use anything from your stash.
I swear I was gonna use the beautiful AA moodboard in my project ! But I don’t know what happened, the red turn into a more pinkish color and the turquoise transformed itself into mint! So instead of creating a more Christmas like project, I ended up with a Spring project. Am I early or what ? Anyway here is my mixed media project :
The base is a wooden deer head, decorated with air dry clay embellishments and flowers, then covered with gesso. Once dry I used some Art Anthology magic to make it more vivid…
We have two colors here, for two kinds of products. First the pink: it’s the Valentine Colorations spray. You can switch to Barbie Colorations as it’s not in the store anymore.
So OK it’s not a Christmas vibe, but I do love the result!
If you want to know more about the process of this project, you can watch the video tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :
Thank you for stopping by today. I wish you a fantastic Holidays season and a great end of the year. We will see each other in 2018!! But you will find projects from the DT on this blog before I return so come back soon !
