Dreamer of Dreams Canvas by Toni

Hi artsy friends, it’s Toni here and I have for you a fun and funky canvas today, taking me back to my old macrame days in the 70’s thought I would create a fun dream catcher. Let’s get started.  We have some wonderful new stencils available in our store and today I used Twinkle Lights to create my background using Mud. Then sprayed with Colorations in Siesta Key and Glorious. Minx Shimmering Inks in Panache and Allure added some pretty shimmer. Shine paints in Canary, Teal and Onyx altered up my clay feathers.

I had fun revisiting my “hippie” era…lol and making this very simple dreamcatcher from an old plastic lid, twine and some beads.Hope you have enjoyed this and for your pleasure I have included for you a Snapguide tutorial below…… Peace

AA products used are :

Colorations – Siesta Key, Glorious

Minx- Panache, Allure

Shine – Onyx, Teal, Canary

Mud Paste

Stencil- Twinkle Lights

Ink resist technique layout

Hello !

I’m back from the Art Anthology cruise (you have to signed up for the next one by the way !) with a new layout and a cool ink resist technique :

Did you know that you can create a resist effect with any of our AA mediums ? I choose the Glass Sorbet because it dries transparent, but depending on what you want, you can choose any other color ! I applied the Glass over the Retro stencil and dried it before adding colors…

I choose two tones of green to spray over the medium : Granny Smith and Clover Colorations sprays. Same on some of the die cuts used as embellishments.

You can also spot Glorious Colorations spray, as well as Gold Dust Minx and Gilded Gold Fairy Dust spray on this layout.

I made a video tutorial for you to see in action how to create this ink resist effect with the Glass Sorbet. You can watch it here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

If you want to see another project where I used the resist technique (but with gel medium instead of Glass Sorbet), take a look at my Spring panel (there is a video too)…

Thank you for stopping by today ! I wish you a great Memorial Day and wonderful week to come ! See you in a few …

Message In A Bottle-Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new design team project featuring our gorgeous new SHINE paints.  I had this bottle sitting around the house and decided to create a message in a bottle altered project using the wonderful new paints from Art Anthology. These are my new favorite mediums to create with because they have a gloss that is glass-like. No shimmer or glitter, semi-translucent and highly pigmented.I first primed the outside of the bottle with clear gesso just to give the glass some tooth to hold my paints and sprays. Then I began adding the gorgeous SHINE in Ocean and Kelly. Because these paints are dimensional they hold their peaks and provide such a pretty texture.I did add some art stones in assorted sizes to Minx Shimmering Inks Bank Roll and Panache to provide some interesting texture as well. Floral moss was added and then sprayed with Colorations in Avocado and Decadent Minx was dripped here and there to add shadows and depth.Because the ocean is filled with a beautiful array of colors I also decided to add some SHINE in Canary and Sunrise for some highlights.  The inside of the bottle I added sand, assorted sea shells and some Diamond Dust glitter. It provided a water illusion inside.

Grab yourself some of these new paints from Art Anthology and have your self a good time creating. For your pleasure stop by our Art Anthology page on Snapguide to view a step x step process for this project. xoxo Toni

Altered tissue box

Hello !

Valerie there today with another altered project ! I moved recently and found a sad wood tissue box in one of my cabinet ready to be upgraded ! Look at the result first :

The box was covered in lace, with lot of embellishments like flowers, buttons, pearls, stones, and chipboards on the top, then covered with white gesso before adding some colors…

I used two type of mediums in this project : Colorations sprays and Sorbet mediums. The Colorations sprays are Siesta Key and Peacock Feathers.

I used the Sorbet dimensional mediums in Cayman, Mermaid and Vegas Gold as touch ups with a small brush.

Love this color gradient ! It’s soft and vibrant at the same time !

If you would like to know more about my creative process in this project, you can watch the video tutorial here (but it’s also on the Art Anthology YouTube channel with a lot of others projects !) :

Thank you for stopping by ! Hope to see you very soon with another tutorial…

Have a great day !
