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!
See my step by step tutorial:
Have a great creative day 😉
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.
I used a flat board canvas and created this:
Thanks so much for dropping by today!
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!!
Gesso; Gel Medium; Assemblage Clock; memory hardware pearls; metal keys; metal embellishments from stash;
Hope i have inspired you to get inky! Thanks so much for viewing my post today! Happy Holidays!

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.
The green is another AA products, a Minx – Shimmering ink in Bankroll. Both are working very well together !
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 !
Hi Art Anthology fans!!!
Marleen here with some winter inspiration.
In the Netherlands the Garden Centers always inspire me before Christmas.
I always buy crystals, stars and many embellishments that I can use for my mixed media projects.
This year I did it again 😀
Watch the video tutorial and see how this tag was created.
Some detail pictures:
Hope you are inspired for some wonderful winter projects 😉
