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 🙂

FALL IN ♥ WITH PATINA AND RUST

Hi all our crafty followers, are you ready for some new fabulous products from Art Anthology. We now have a Patina and Rust set that is so much fun to work with. I wasn’t able to choose my favorite between the two sets so I used both to alter my paper mache pumpkin for the holidays. 

My pumpkin was an inexpensive paper mache one purchased at my craft store. I covered it first with embossed metal tape, which you can view the tutorial below to watch my process. The embossing provided some nice textures, but the patina and rust gave it that kick that was needed. Leaves were created with burlap material, and the pumpkin vine was made twisting some floral grapvine wire with seed beads. I hope this has inspired you with some ideas for altering up some holiday decor for your home. Get your hands on these two new sets from Art Anthology HEREAs an added small project I had purchased some wood leaves at Michaels, they were 70% off for their harvest items, so these leaves cost me 20 cents !!!  Simply printed out my words, burnt the edges of the paper and applied to my wood pieces with Sorbet paint in Glass, attached some twine and they will go wrapped around my place settings for my Thanksgiving table. Wishing you a holiday filled with love and blessings…. Creatively yours, Toni

Imagine… your bookmarks !

Hello there, it’s Valerie !

Back to papercrafts after few off-the-page projects ! This time I created for you few bookmarks, using Colorations sprays, mediums and stencil from the Art Anthology store :

The chevron pattern came from the Chevron stencil used with Lagoon Velvet medium. I just added few stamps and washi tapes to complete the design.

I obtain the background by spraying Siesta Key and Peacock Feathers. I added the washi tapes before stenciling, and then Stamped in black ink. The Gold Metal Effects higlight some of the stamped patterns. I also sprayed some Gilded Gold Fairy Dust to add some shine to the project.

Once again I used a white gel pen to give dimension to the stamps. You can see the entire process on video (here or on the Art Anthology channel) :

Thank you for stopping by today ! Hope to see you soon…

Be in love with your life art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m back with a new art journal page using the amazing Art Anthology Velvet paints, Colorations sprays and a few stencils. If you remember from my last post, I reorganized my craft room and while doing that I found a few scrap pieces of paper. I’m supper happy that I found them, because I immediately had some ideas for art journal pages.

I found some elegant ladies as rub-ons and wanted to create a fancy art journal page for one of them. You can watch the process in my new video. This time it doesn’t have a voice over, but it should be pretty much self-explanatory:

When I was done with adding color to my page, I thought it looked like an underwater scene. So I grabbed some sea horses and se stars that I had lying around and added them to the page.

Of course the page needed a sentiment and what fit better than the big Soliloquy stencil paired with some other phrases?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I did creating it 🙂

The Bone Collector-Mini Album w/Coffin by Toni

Ghostly Greetings  from Toni  and I’m here to inspire you with a “Bone Collector Mini Album and Coffin” to keep all those fun costume pics of your Halloween extravaganza. At the end of the post I have created a Snapguide tutorial on step x step process for creating the coffin, and a bit on creating the template for the mini album.  My project started off with this dollar tree find coffin and I traced it on chipboard to create my pages for the mini album to fit inside. This project had several steps but oh what fun it was to make… I actually had to tell myself “ENOUGH ALREADY”….. lol  The entire project was adhered to a wood base that was given wonderful textures with AA paints, rocks and craft sand. Wood pieces were applied to the sides of the coffin with Mudd Texture Paste and then painted to provide that old wood effect. AA’s paints are perfect because they are thick and full of body, some having textures and grits that really provided that weathered look I was going for. All those pesky hot glue threads that appear on your projects are a warm welcome to this one because it gives the illusion of webs.  The inside of coffin lid was achieved with AA’s Gothic Stencil and Mudd Paste. The tree was made from floral wire and then painted with different shades of AA paints to provide that dead look.  Several Ideaology pieces were used such as lantern, spiders, word band, glass vials, skeletons, and bones to enhance the project as well.  I used several different brands of Halloween paper, for the mini album and distressed the edges with AA paints.  The inside of the coffin was decoupaged with Halloween napkin. This is one side of the mini album. Here is the other side of the album. It’s hard to believe  there is room for 30 pictures on this ini. And here is a collage of all the pages to the mini album. Hope this post didn’t SCARE you with all the photos and steps involved, actually was quite simple and allows your creativity to go crazy.  So park your brooms at the door, sit down for a spell my pretties and enjoy the snapguide tutorial below. The following are the products used to create my piece.

Art Journal Page with Josefine

The world is my playground art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I wanted to create a blue colored page. Not because I felt blue, but because the current mood board has so many pretty blue shades. I skipped the orange and replaced with some rust though.

A few days ago I reorganized my craft room and found a couple of scraps that I really wanted to incorporate somehow. So I decided to paint a blue background, add some texture and then use the scraps for this page.

I love that it is so simple to create a nicely blended background with the art Anthology paints. It always looks like I know what I’m doing 😛

If you want to see how I put everything together, here’s a video tutorial for you:


Here are a few more close ups for you.

Altered sketchbook by Valerie

Hi everyone !

Another mixed media project (I do love creating them!) with an inexpansive sketchbook as base…

I made clay embellishments and use flowers, metal embellishments and buttons as well to adhere on the sketchbook before covering everything with black gesso.

When everything was dry, I re-colored the project with Vegas Gold and Wisteria Sorbet, and Rose Velvet, then added some Gilded Gold Fairy Dust and Plush Colorations spray.

The other additions to this project were cheesecloth and microbeads, as well as wood letters for the title.

If you like to learn more about the process of this project, take a loo at my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel, where you can find other wonderful tutorials.

Thank for stopping by and for your time reviewing this project ! Have a wonderful week end filled with creativity !
