Halloween Canvas

Ooozing eyeballs Halloween canvas with Josefine

How about a mixed media Halloween canvas with oozing eyeballs and poison paste? Art Anthology products are perfect for drippy backgrounds and thick texture alike. And it’s still enough time to create some more spooky things – despite all the Christmas decoration that is already up in my grocery store.

I’m a fan of these smaller, card sized projects and love to decorate a canvas like that. The smaller area makes it easier to get started, but also challenges you to “organize” your space better. So let me show you what I did with this little canvas.

And? Oozing enough? 😛
I’m impressed with the stone effect paste. Even though I mixed with one of the Sorbet’s it dried in a neat texture.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there !

The project I will show you today is a perfect example of what you can do with Art anthology products in a mixed media project… You will see (yes there is a video tutorial) different uses for Sorbet, Velvet, Colorations sprays, Minx, and stencils ! So grab a cup of something and relax, because it’s gonna be a long post…

Let’s first take a look at the complete project :

Some of the inside pages :

I love the peek between pages created by cutting the paper at different sizes…

This is the back cover, with Cotton Velvet, Limeaid Velvet, Imperial Sorbet, Cotton Candy Velvet mediums and Dottie, Inspired Grunge and Expressions stencils :

Here are close-ups of the pages :

Lots of Colorations sprays, stencils and mediums !

Stamps and white gel pen were used to add more dimensions to the pages.

And drops of water created a great look !

So many different textures too !

Here is the list of products I used for this project :

Colorations Sprays : Avocado, Barbie, Glorious, Sky, Patience, Plush, Salmon, TImeless, Waimea Bay, Wild Orchid.

Minx Shimmering inks : Gold Dust, Indulgence, Majestic, Stagazer.

Sorbet Dimensional mediums : Baby blue eyes, Imperial, Mi Bella, Wisteria, Sunshine.

Velvet Dimensional mediums : Cotton candy, Cotton, Lagoon, Limeaid.

Stencils : Blocked, Chasing butterflies, Dottie, Inspired grunge, Retro, Chevron, Lotus, Scales, Expressions.

I made a tutorial for you to explain how I did each pages so you can create one of your own !

Thank you for stopping by today and for taking some of your time to review this project !

Make a wish art journal page with Art Anthology

Make a wish art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m in an art journal mood at the moment and just had to create a page with some of the Art Anthology Velvet paints. I picked all the yellows, oranges and reds that I had and started painting.

I usually don’t worry too much about techniques or guidelines when creating a project. I love “just trying” and then see what works and what not. So when I started with this page I didn’t really know where I wanted to go with it, till I realized that I’m adding quite a few stars.

The rest then just happened and I really enjoy how it turned out 🙂

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:

Embrace Time by Toni

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a layout featuring a photo I took at the beach as a “goodbye for now” to summer, as it is now fall. Time surely does fly and that’s why the title on my layout is perfect…. Embrace Time.

Using Art Anthology stencil along with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder gives some pretty bubbles to my backdrop for my photos. Along with Minx Shimmering Inks & Coloration Sprays to enhance the muted gray cardstock, these enhance the layout perfectly.

Stone Effects adds such pretty gritty texture to your pieces, and this was added to sections of my chipboard fishnet as well as my surfboards. And then to finish off the layout I added seed beads, seashells, rocks & assorted florals.  Hope you had a spectacular summer, as for me I am so over the heat spell we have been having and sooooo ready for fall… xoxo Toni
