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…

I used black gesso under the sentiment to give another dimension to the ATC.

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..

This time I decided to try draw (and paint) a Mandala. I used Art Anthology Meridian stencil. I thought that could be perfect base for my very first Mandala.

I painted it of Minxs. Look how it Shimmer beautiful..

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.
SunPrint2

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.

Spring frame

Hello Art Anthology fans. It’s Anna here with my first project created with AA goodies.

It’s almost spring outside my window and I am so tired of grey, short, winter days. I need sun, colors and warmth. I can’t wait to see trees in bloom and smell the scent of lilacs and cherries.

I am in the mood for fresh colors and flowers so I created this home decor for my kitchen. It’s a floral frame created with some old canvas, branch brought from one of our walks and some paper flowers. And, of course, Art Anthology mediums.

DSC_6652b

I decided to use fresh colors that associate with spring: pink, yellow and light green.

DSC_6654b

I used some old canvas from my previous, unsuccessful project. Tha canvas was destroyes but I still was able to use the wooden frame. First, I coverd the wood with a gesso to protect it and create a base for the mediums, then I played with colors and painted the frame.

I recorded a video so You can check my creative process and here are some yummy details:

Serenity

Hello Art Anthology friends! Debbie with today sharing a layout that was especially fun to create. The photo is one of my favorites and Wisteria is in my top ten of favorite flowers! The Flowers are hand made using dies and the rose leaves are chipboard that has been altered to match the layout and flowers. Today I’m going to share how I altered the chipboard using Art Anthology Colorations  but first we will talk about the background of the layout.

IMG_2509

To create the background follow these steps:

Begin by tracing around where the matting and photo will be placed.

106_7769

Add your Mud and stenciling. Allow to dry.

106_7771

Spray the background with Colorations Peacock Feathers.

106_7772

Adhere your photo and mats using cardboard for dimension. Using VersaMark clear embossing ink and 2 colors of embossing powder, emboss your stenciling.

106_7773

Add splatters using Minx in Midnight to your layout.

106_7774

Gesso all chipboard pieces.

Spray with Colorations in Peacock Feathers.

Emboss with Versa Mark and Utee thick enamal embossing powder.

Repeat.

106_7775

When the embossing is set spray with Colorations in Gilded Gold and reheat until it melts into the Utee.

IMG_2517

This technique will give your chipboard gold metal flecks and give it a wet look.

I hope you give this a try it will give your layouts a unique look!

Thanks for stopping by the Art Anthology Blog today!!
