Naked Beauty by Toni

Hi all our artsy followers, today I’m on the blog with a layout I created featuring an “au natural” photo I took at the beach of the gorgeous colors in the sand as well as pretty textures of shells, pods, feathers and drift wood…. all of natures eye candy. I love photographing  mother nature stripped down, in the raw. The textures, the organic feel is truly healthy for my soul. I did add some florals as well as moss, shells and different sizes of art stones to enhance, but the foundation was provided by Art Anthology’s Mud Texture Paste run through the pretty Bubbles stencil. As well as splashes here and there of AA’s paints using Sorbet, Velvets and Stone Effects. (Below are a list of products used. )Instant coffee  spritzed with water also provided for some warmth and depth to my layout. I hope you have been inspired to photograph the unexpected. Embrace what has been provided to you by the earth’s complexion, photograph it and then get messy with your mixed media products in order to save those memories. 

Products used are:

Velvets-Terracotta, Tuxedo

Stone Effects-Concrete

Sorbet-Chocolate

Stencil-Bubbles

Mud Texture Paste

Enjoy my Snapguide tutorial below for my step x step process.

Mechanical Love by Toni

Hi everyone, hope you are having a creative month and enjoying our wonderful mood board provided for inspiration. 

My layout is featuring my daddy that was taken probably about 60 years ago. He was a metal pourer and made machine parts. Hard and dangerous work, but he loved it. One of my most favorite thing about layouts is layering and dimension and this layout has that and more. 

Art Anthology paints mixed with craft sand that I purchased at the $1.00 store gives an great way to create your own rusty wonderfulness.

The Metal Effects Sillver stippled on the chipboard gave it a metal-like appearance that peeps through the rusty goodness.

This color palette is one of my fav’s and I enjoyed working with my fathers’ photo so much. I hope this has inspired you to go get yourself some craft sand and mix away with your paints. I really think this will work well in our Art Anthology Stencils as well …… hummm ideas for my next project perhaps…..

Have a spectacular week and for your pleasure check out my Snapguide Tutorial for a step x step process for my layout.

Play with pattern by Anna Komenda

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here. Today I want to show You layout with handmade pattern paper. I was inspired by one of the Bellaboulevard papers from “She blooms” collection and I thought: why not to make a similar paper by my own?

DSC_1578 DSC_1583

It was simple, black and white graphic design with polka dots. I just took white 12*12 cardstock, brush and black Velvet paint “Tuxedo” and painted dots. I waneted them to look like hand painted so didn’t measure anything. It was fast and easy job.

DSC_1477

I also painted flowers cutted with Cameo. Pink color looks very nice on this graphic black and white background.

DSC_1482 DSC_1484 DSC_1487

As always, I have a process video for You. I hope You will be isnpired to create Your own patterned papers. You can paint stripes, dots, triangles.

Thank You for stopping by and see You in two weeks.

Layout “Sky is the limit” by Anna Komenda

Hello AA fans. It’s Anna here with some summer inspiration. I played with Colorations Sprays and I created a layout. I was inspired by picture I took during our visit at my parent’s house. They live in the countryside and the sky often looks fabulous there. So crisp and blue till the green horizon.

DSC_9130 DSC_9139

As I mentioned, I played with Colorations Sprays. I sprayed the background with three shades of blue using circle as a stencil.

DSC_9110

I left the white circle in the middle of the blue circles but I also wanted to add white clouds. I didn/t have a proper stencil so I created one by myself. I used texture paste to create the clouds.

DSC_9117

I added a pinch of yellow and I created three colors palette: white, blue and yellow as a sun.

DSC_9125

The title just jumped into my head. I feel free and wild when I look at the sky and distant horizon. It gives my such a great power to deal with the daily routine.

I also created a process video for You.

Thank You for stopping by and see You in two weeks 🙂

Boho Beauty

Hi all you crafty peeps… Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend ! My project today is a 12 x 12 layout of my daughter I recently took. Her outfit inspired me to give this layout a bohemian look. DSC08088

I used the Art Anthology paints to stamp my paisley prints for the backdrop, and Colorations & Fairy Dust Sprays to enhance the flowers as well as the background.

DSC08092

Means this was a boho style layout I had to do a little macrame weaving on this page. I have a full Snapguide tutorial below to show you how I created this weave effect on my page as well as how I customized my background paper with splashes of beautiful colors and shine.

DSC08086

The Metal Effects paints really provides that pretty metallic shine needed to enhance these flowers and frames. Once again, Art Anthology products always deliver the results needed to add that pazazz to your projects. I hope you were inspired to get our your jars and add some color to your projects. Creatively yours, TonitoniSIG
