Wood Canvas with 3D Bird Nest

Hi everyone 🙂

today I’m sharing a 3D canvas with you. I found this bird in the home decor section and just had to pair it with Art Anthology paints, sprays and inks. It is incredible that you can use the same paint as the base, for dimension and as finishing touches. It always surprises me how they turn out and that it just works.

For this canvas I decided to pick a green color base. This way the wood canvas is the tree and the green color is representing the leaves (or similar :P).

So I started with prepping the surface with different shades of green. Then I adhered the nest and added several gold shimmer effects. But see for yourself:

What do you think? Did the bird get a nice and shiny home or should she move? 😉

For this project I used:

Mono Printed Mixed Media Cards with Art Anthology by Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m Josefine, the new design team member for Art Anthology. You have no idea how excited I am to join this amazing team! I’m using Art Anthology paints and stencils for a while now and my local craft store, Scrapbooking Forever in California, originally introduced me to them.

For my first project I decided to create a couple of cards using Sorbet and Velvet paints and my favorite stencils.

This project is featuring the mono printing technique. I thought it would be fun to try out the dimensional paints on my Gel Press – and I think it turned out pretty nice. Have you ever tried mono printing with Art Anthology paints?

I thought that it might be easier to follow the process with a video, so I created a quick tutorial for you:

I love mono printing, because you can create a bunch of backgrounds very fast and it’s hard to stop. I usually have to when my floor is covered in paper, lol.

Here are a few more pictures. You can click on them to enlarge them.

I hope you enjoyed my first project for Art Anthology. I’m super excited to try even more techniques with these versatile paints and share them with you!
