Brush Bin, by Marleen.

Hello peeps,

Marleen here with a new project! I made a Brush Bin out of Leather-Paper. It’s so easy to use with the Art Anthology products and guess what… you can sew it!

I used one of my new stencils 

The stamps I used are in the same style as the stencil(also my design) witch will released next month at a Dutch company called KiCoStamps. 

Of course I made a step by step tutorial for you:

Layout with the new Velvet…

Hello there !

New Velvet have hit the store, and as they are bright, I had to create something with them !

The new mediums weren’t the only things in my DT box, I also found plenty of new stencils and I choose the Double Flower stencil by our DT member Marleen to build my background…

I outlined the stencil with a black pen first, and once done, I used a black Sharpie to fill the lines. I continued with the stencil to create flowers along a down left – upper right diagonal.

Once all the flowers were drawn, I started to paint the inside of the flowers and leaves. Taffy Velvet and Beyond the Reef for the petals, Gecko Green for the leaves and Dayglow Yellow for the pistils.

I then added some Dayglow Yellow on the corners before adding my title, and paint a mat for my picture in the same color.

You can find hereafter (or on the AA YouTube channel) the video tutorial to learn how to create this kind of background :

Thank you for stopping by today and for reading this post ! See you soon for another project…

This is what family looks like, by Marleen.

Hi Art Anthology Fans,

Art Anthology got NEW Colors!!
I’ve used 2 of them

Velvet: Beyond the Reef, Sorbet: Walnut. And the third color is the Colorations Sedona which we already have but matches perfectly with the Walnut.

A perfect combination to create something aged looking.

Then we also have NEW stencils!! I used this one:


*click the image to see more stencils*

So I started in my Art Journal but after finishing I saw that the video wasn’t good! 🙁

So a short description of what I did:
*Add pieces of old bookpaper to the page with gelmedium.
*wash the page with a little gesso and water.
*Add with the stencil Velvet Beyond the Reef and cotton(blend together).
*After drying put the stencil in the same spot and brush over the Sorbet Walnut.
* Take of the stencil and water the Sorbet, the pigments will spread.
*Sponge down all the edges with Sedona.
*The tag is done with the same stencil and Sedona.
*Spray(everything except the photo) with Fairy Dust Gilded Gold.
*Add splashes Minx Stargazer and Decadent.
* Finish it with splashes gesso.
