This is what family looks like, by Marleen.

Hi Art Anthology Fans,

Art Anthology got NEW Colors!!
I’ve used 2 of them

Velvet: Beyond the Reef, Sorbet: Walnut. And the third color is the Colorations Sedona which we already have but matches perfectly with the Walnut.

A perfect combination to create something aged looking.

Then we also have NEW stencils!! I used this one:


*click the image to see more stencils*

So I started in my Art Journal but after finishing I saw that the video wasn’t good! 🙁

So a short description of what I did:
*Add pieces of old bookpaper to the page with gelmedium.
*wash the page with a little gesso and water.
*Add with the stencil Velvet Beyond the Reef and cotton(blend together).
*After drying put the stencil in the same spot and brush over the Sorbet Walnut.
* Take of the stencil and water the Sorbet, the pigments will spread.
*Sponge down all the edges with Sedona.
*The tag is done with the same stencil and Sedona.
*Spray(everything except the photo) with Fairy Dust Gilded Gold.
*Add splashes Minx Stargazer and Decadent.
* Finish it with splashes gesso.

Happy 2019 !

Happy New Year y’all !

I hope you started this new journey with creativity ! If not I have the perfect project for you (and you can check the “send new year card” box of your to do list…) !

On white cardstock, I first sprayed Sterling Fairy Dust before embossing it with a folder.

The gray stars are made with the Twilight stencil and the Silver Metal Effect medium. I also made splatters of Stargazer Minx to add a little of blue on my background.

The tiny wood stars were colored with Honolulu Blue Sorbet. I also colored white twine with Sterling Fairy Dust and Stargazer Minx to put under the stamped and embossed paper stars.

You can re-create this card by following my steps on this tutorial video (also available on the Art Anthology YouTube channel) :

Thank you for your time, I’m glad to see you again in the beginning of this new year. I will see you soon for another project…

Have a great day !

A little inspiration for you, from Daniëlle

Hi everyone!

Daniëlle here, just popping in, to give you some extra inspiration!

I created these two tags:

In the background I used a combination of colorations sprays (Sandcastle, Siësta Key and Sedona) with Minx shimmering inks (Decadent, Panache) over a layer of Mud and stencils.

To give them a vintage, aged look, I used the texture sets Rust and Patina. I love these sets to add texture and color to elements like the die-cuts on my tags.

All you have to do now is add a beautiful stamp and a text and you’re all done! I hope to inspire you with my project and please show us what you create!

Bye Bye!
