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…



Messy page, Always follow your dreams.

so I hope to inspire you all !!

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 3 !

Hi you, Art Anthology fans… Ellie Knol here today! 

It’s good to be back after being to South Africa for a month…it wasn’t a holiday actually, but to bury my dear mom who passed away last month. I had nearly 2 weeks to sit with her and say goodbye. We were actually going to celebrate her 90 th birthday on the 19th, but she passed away 2 weeks before that. She had a fulfilled life… that’s for sure. 


AS PROMISED… I am not finished playing with the MINX inks yet! 

Today I chose to play with MINX inks in combination with a custom made ink pad. That’s really so much fun.. you MUST give it a try!

Please have a look at the Snapguide at the end of this post for step-by-steps of the 2 techniques in this post.

Technique ONE is using the inks on the pad for stamping.

Changing the above card with just a touch of 2 stencils.


Technique TWO is finishing up all that beautiful ink on your pad.

Using these backgrounds for one-of-a-kind cards.

Spring mixed media egg panel

Hello crafters !

If you haven’t decorate your house for Spring or Easter, I have an idea of project for you… an egg panel, filled with flowers, mixed media techniques and Art Anthology products of course ! It even matches our AA moodboard !

Take a look at the finished project :

The background of this egg panel was built with the Retro stencil and Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Sandcastle. The border was painted with Bronze Metal Effect dimensional paint, and the chipboards with Aloha Velvet paint.

Another close-up to see the beautiful effect created with the stencil :

Mixed Media ATCs – Bright and black

Hello crafters !

Valerie today with another mixed media project in a smaller format this time… 4″x3″ in multiples… Yes they are ATCs !


The Minx bottles were in good use in this project for the background, in Allure and Indulgence. The Raider Colorations Spray was handy too to pop up the crackles…

Minx Mandala

Hello, today I would like to show you my new love 🙂

I always try to create something different, new, try some new techniques or more..

Sun Printing With Minx

Kathy here today to share a summer project.  I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but here in South Carolina it is HOT and HUMID! I’ve wanted to try sun printing but everything I’ve read about it requires special transparent fabric paints.  This got me thinking that maybe Minx would work. They are transparent and very fluid but also very pigmented.  So I experimented with some scraps of canvas and it worked great.

Since it’s close to Independence Day, July 4th, I thought I’d use red, white and blue and create something patriotic.


July 4th Banner With Minx

Sun printing can be created using fabric or paper. It requires saturating the material with water, adding color, adding a mask of some sort, then letting it all dry in the hot sun. Here is how I made my July 4th banner.

You can see how I created my banner here:
Check out How to Sun Print With Minx Inks by Kathy Adams by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Play around with this technique using different colors and different shapes.  Mix similar colors together. Try using Colorations Sprays.  Involve the kids! Don’t forget to share your results on our Facebook page, Art Anthology Adventures in Art.  I have another sun printing project on Melissa Frances’ blog using Minx, canvas, mixed media paper, and laser wood embellishments.
