Scrapbooking layout in red and blue

Hello everyone !

Back with a layout this time, playing with Velvet, stencil and ink for a neutral gender look, as the picture I choose featured my daughter and my nephew… So blue, red and black are my color choices…

After using a chicken wire stamp on the edges of the paper, I applied the Beyond the Reef medium and the Desire Velvet over the Wheel stencil to achieve my background.

The Beyond the Reef medium also colored few of the tags of my layering.

It’s amazing how the color differ with the thickness… when use as paint, I obtained a beautiful water-like blue, and as medium over the stencil, this blue is very deep !

Before layering my papers and picture, I used the Raider Colorations spray to create the small ink spots on my background…

Here is the video tutorial if you want to take a look at my creative process…

Thank you for your time, see you soon for another project…

Mixed Media Vintage Frame by Toni

Hi everyone, today we’re going to get a bit grungy.  I purchased a frame at the dollar store and decided I wanted to alter it up. I first added some lace to the frame to give some pretty texture, then I primed the surface with gesso for all my sprays and paints I wanted to add.  I’m  not really a purple kind of girl, but sometimes it’s good to create with something out of your comfort zone… It helps you grow as a creative. This project is filled with layers of lace, mixed media products, papers and embellies.  Just keep layering until you get the look you like… “It’s Artist’s Choice”. I will have a list of products used below. Take a ride to the dollar tree, see what they have that you can alter up. Have fun with your creativity ! For your enjoyment I have included a process video below. xoxo Toni

Products used:

Colorations-Warm, Sedona, Plush, Sandcastle, Raider

Minx Shimmering Inks-Decadent

Velvet-Boysenberry

Copper Patina

Mixed Media Wooden Tag by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a heartfelt project, dedicated to a very dear friend that I lost almost 2 years ago. The image on the front of this tag was actually the last card I received from her for my birthday. I thought this would be a nice way to keep this treasure. This wooden tag was primed first with white gesso and then collaged with book pages and scrapbook paper. Then I applied black modeling paste through one of Art Anthology’s NEW stencils Multi Damask. Then with the help from Art Anthology’s Rust and Patina Texture Set I was able to alter the heart and edges of the tag. Colorations Sprays were used to dye the seam binding at the top of the tag. For your pleasure I have included a process video and there is also a list of supplies used below. Wishing you a bright and peaceful day !

Supplies Used:

Colorations; Warm, Peacock Feathers, Siesta Key

Rust Texture Set

Patina Texture Set

Stencil-Multi Damask

For your pleasure here is a video of my creative process… xoxo Toni

Mixed Media Flower Canvas by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here and I’m having so much fun with some of Art Anthology’s NEW products… Have you checked out the store… WOW so many beautiful NEW stencils and so many gorgeous NEW colors of dimensional paints. I used the new Double Flower Stencil for this canvas. Prepped the canvas first with crackle medium and allowed it to dry. Then I created my flowers using a different method of appying the paint to the stencils. Instead of adding the medium and then swiping the excess, I applied the paints like frosting a cake and left it thick…. check out my video below for more details. Applying it this way provided a wonderful dimensional texture. And it’s so easy with Art Anthology’s gel based paints. Once the flowers were dry, I fussy cut all of them and adhered them to the canvas and highlighted the shadow areas with Minx Shimmering Inks. Finishing off the canvas with a dry brushing of Amber Sorbet (from the rust set). Hope you give this technique a try, so much fun experimenting with mixed media. Wishing you a day filled with love & peace.

For your pleasure I have included a video to share my creative process. xoxo Toni

Spring Art journal spread

Hello everyone !

March is the first month of Spring and I’m lucky enough to be in the South of U.S., so trees are blossoming and full of birds’ nests again (sorry for those under snow right now…). All this flowering inspired me to create my new art journal spread, using Colorations sprays, Velvet, Shine and Metal Effect…

With strips of asian journal paper over gessoed pages, I sprayed Peacock Feathers and Waimea bay Colorations to start my background.

Some round stamps and cherry blossom stamps in black complete this background, with few of the flowers colored with a white gel pen. I also added strokes of Cotton Velvet to add touches of light .

I used also the Floral Tile stencil with Gold Metal Effect medium before gluing cherry blossom branches (cut with a machine in white paper). The branches were painted in Onyx Shine and the flowers in Cotton Candy Velvet.

I finally added the journaling, written on a white paper strip and painted in Cotton Candy Velvet.

Wanna try art journaling but need a push ? Take a look at my video tutorial for some help with this design…

Thank for your time, and see you soon for another project…
