Altered bottle with new stencils and paints

Hi there, it’s Valerie !

Are you ready for another altered object ? This time I choose to alter… a soy sauce bottle ! Of course you can alter a soy sauce bottle ! Any kind of bottle, right ?

So what kind of products did I use this time ? You can spot the Gothic stencil with Lava Stone effect paint

And the Diamond Grunge stencil with 50 shades grey Velvet dimensional paint too…

The altered bottle was sprayed with Sky Colorations spray before adhering the embellishments.

Art Journal tutorial

Bonjour !

Valerie today to present you a new tutorial : a mixed media Art Journal !

I love create scrapbook pages, but sometimes I just want to put some colors on paper, add a little stamp or two, nothing fancy but satisfying for my creating cravings… Using paints, inks, stencils and stamps on a journal spread is perfect for this kind of mood ! And as I wanted some sunshine (that I didn’t have outside), my pages are very sunny…

Starting with Glorious Colorations spray and Allure Minx, I built the background with the Retro and Blocked stencils and the Juicy Colorations spray and Tango Velvet Dimensional medium.

Few stamps colored with Patience Colorations spray and Red Velvet Sorbet Dimensional medium, some alpha stickers and a black pen and you’re done!

As usual, you will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just watch it from here :

Thank you for stopping by the AA blog today, see you soon for my next project…

Shabby Altered Box

Hello crafters !

Valerie here, back with a new mixed media project !

Soft colors of Spring, butterflies and flowers were my inspiration for today… I’m came up with this shabby altered box :

I use two Colorations sprays on this box, Avocado and Wild Orchid, and in two ways, by spraying (box and embellishments) and by painting (the cameo and the frame).

Here another close-up on the clay frame and cameo, painted with the Colorations sprays with a brush…

Colorations spray and glass?!

 Hi, Ellie Knol here today.. with a very FUN and easy project;
playing with Colorations! YES, on glass!!
Find out how in this post, and for a tutorial go see the Snapguide at the end of the post.
Here you can see the finished project as it looks during the day.
To begin with, I bought this as a whole on a flea market, with the glass being uncolored.
I used Colorations, deli paper, gesso and a stamp.
Doesn’t this look yummy?
Some detail of the colored paper (the backside) after it had dried.
With the lights and the candles both on.
With the lights out and the candles on.
Every photo I took gave some other detail of the beautiful colors, depending on the light around it, and whether the candles or on or not.
 

I’ve created a Snapguide tutorial for you, with a step-by-step of the creation of these candle holders with the beautiful Colorations (inkspray) from Art Anthology.  

Check out How to Decorate Glass Candle Holders With Deli Paper by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

I hope you will give this a try…
it’s always nice to have some candles burning at night
during the darker period of the year!!
