HI Friends, Its Karan Gerber here with you today. After being on a few cruises i just love the look of portholes and although i didnt have a porthole to alter, i thought i could maybe create something similar and share it with my crafty friends.
Here is what i came up with, i will share a few detail images then you have the chance to check out my Snapguide tutorial below. Have fun 😀
I started with a 5×7 canavs from the dollar store. I had some embellishments like the resin frame and some metal clock pieces and wooden gears also from the dollar sttore
I have a Fall layout to show you today. I know, we are in February, but between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and soon to be Valentine’s day, I didn’t have the chance to scrap this Fall picture I like. So here it is, and thanks to that, I did use my rust texture set !
Hello friends and welcome to my blog today. I am sharing with you today a 6×8 canvas with a 5×7 corruagated cardboard cover. I had some Scrapiniec chipboard and wanted to create a dream catcher idea i have been wanting to do.
Here is what i put together for todays project for Art Anthology I love how this turned out. I seem to be in this teal color scheme lately and am in love with this Amber Rust. I need more as my jar is now empty 😀
I want to share some detail images then i will get going on the snapguide.
i did dab a bit of glorious coloration spray on there a bit
Hi everyone, Toni here with some organization inspiration. I love my craft supplies to be organized and I so enjoy altering the containers that I place my supplies in. It serves at a couple purposes…. it helps in storage of my trinkets as well as it’s a piece of art to inspire me in my craft room. I had this empty plastic peanut container that was a nice size and new I could use it to put all my seashells in, so I decided to alter it using my Art Anthology texture pastes as well as Minx Shimmering Inks. I took fishnet and saturated it in sculpture medium and wrapped it around my container and allowed it to dry then removed it and gave it a nice coat of white gesso. I wanted to be able to see the sea shells inside the container, that is the reason I prepped the fishnet in this manner. Once the gesso has dried attach the net to the container using 3D matt gel and hot glue and then start decorating with shells, starfish, silver dollars, pieces of coral etc. Using a combination of my Minx Shimmering Inks and our Patina Texture Set, I was able to achieve this pretty mossy under the sea texture. I also added art stones in assorted sizes for some added interest and texture. The thing I love about mixed media is it’s all about the layers and textures. The more you add the better your project gets. The title on my container is a T!m Holtz Chipboard Quote and I also added colors from our Minx to enhance it. The lid was altered using a small metal light house surrounded by shells, fishnet, starfish etc. and then prepped with white gesso and our AA beautiful products were added for color. Hoping this inspired you to grab some of your containers and give them a face lift. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook HERE so you can also inspire all of us with your beautiful creations.
Below is a list of AA products used on my container:
Valerie here today to show you a project for an Holiday you maybe are not familiar with, Mardi Gras ! Fat Tuesday is an old Middle Age tradition where peasants disguised themselves, feasted and burned a effigy of the king. It was something tolerate by the church to replace the older pagan custom for Spring. So, I will just stay with the disguise today with an altered mask !
Not far from where I live is the beautiful town of New Orleans, where Mardi Gras is a real deal Holiday ! The official colors for this are green and purple, so I choose the Mardi Gras Velvet and Emerald Dimensional Gemstones mediums for my project.
Hello friends and welcome to my blog today. Its Karan here on the blog today for Art Anthology and today, I am sharing with you a altered paintbrush. This is the first time i have ever attempted something like this and to be honest, i was a bit nervous after starting it.
The paintbrush is from the dollar store, just a cheap one actually. The embellishments , the clay pieces i made by hand using some molds; Here is what i put together for today’s project
I am in love with this piece i love how the few products i used really enhanced the different embellishments i used. From clay to metal.
There is no reason to create less than in 2017, right ? I hope you start this new year with alot of projects in mind, and I hope I will help you in your creativity with my new project inspired by the January moodboard…
That was a lot of work but I am so pleased with the result ! I wanted to create a canvas to celebrate Maths and found a quote from Albert Einstein : “Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” I had my title !
Maths are so important in the progress of the human kind… In fact, they are present everywhere, especially in art ! I think this piece could be a perfect gift for a Maths teatcher… Never too early to think about end-of-the-school-year gift or even a dad’s day gift ?
You can watch my video tutorial to see my creative process right here :
And if you need another push to creativity, here is the moodboard to help you start with colors…
Once again happy new year, and see you soon for another mixed media project…
