The First Step in a Journey with Karan

Hello Friends

Its Karan here today, to share with you  my first post and first project here  on the Art Anthology Blog. I am pretty excited to share this first one with you.   I created a vintage clock using the assemblage clock from Tim Holtz.

 

The clock itself, comes pretty plain and quite shiny, and looks like this, it does have a removable back and a glass front.  I kept the glass front on, but removed the back during the altering process.

I created a snapguide for you to view some of the steps, I need to figure out a video setup so and as soon as i figure that out, i hope to be doing videos instead of snapguides.

Here are some detail images, i love how this turned out and im loving the stone effects and Minx. Never mind the Sprays and, oh wait, i love it all, LOL!!

 

 i have quite a collection of metal embellishments and pulled a few out that i felt would work for this project.  You can seriously use anything from your stash.

 

 

Materials:  

Art Anthology Materials:
Bone Stone Effects: 
Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent;
Rust Amber Sorbet;
Peacock Feathers Spray;
Gilded Gold Shimmer Spray; 
Siesta Key Spray;

Other Materials:
Gesso; Gel Medium; Assemblage Clock; memory hardware pearls; metal keys; metal embellishments from stash;

Hope i have inspired you to get inky! Thanks so much for viewing my post today! Happy Holidays!

Using Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology to create a camo canvas with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I want to share a new canvas with you. I used the Colorations Sprays to create a camo looking background and I love it 🙂

I used parts of the Lotus Stencil for the focal point in the background and to add some extra texture. By using the Minx inks to outline the Lotus flower it now looks like its shining even brighter.

I always like to add hidden interest to a project. The Dazzle paint is perfect for that as it dries clear and just leaves this amazing sparkle.

But now to the process. Here is my video that is showing how I put everything together. Enjoy 🙂

These are the supplies I used:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little canvas 🙂
