Valentine’s altered heart box

Hi there !

Valentine’s day is around the corner and you’re so not ready ? I have a new project for you, an heart altered box :

It is a fun mixed media project to create for your Valentine, and you can filled it with chocolates, candies or lingerie if you want !

I started with a cardboard box and the Lotus stencil with Mud Paste (you can use heavy gesso or texture paste too). Once dried, I added some lace clay embellishments I prepared in advance (but you can you chipboard or wood ones) and covered everything with white gesso.

The box was then painted with Rose Velvet medium and set aside to dry… Meanwhile, I did covered all my embellishments with white gesso (paper flowers, metal leaves and flowers, clay flowers and letters).

They were then painted with Portobello Velvet medium or Rose Velvet medium, with touches of Kona Velvet or Fiesta Velvet.

The last part was to to create clusters and place the letters on the box ! A matching lace on the edge was the perfect final touch.

To help you create this box, I made a video tutorial that you can watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for your time. Hope to see you soon on our blog !

How to make snow with Mud…

Hello everyone !

We are all in full Winter mode, so why not try to create a Winter project with cold color and snow ? That’s what I did in this layout :

After inking the edges of my background paper with Warm Colorations spray and water, I applied Mud paste over the Gothic stencil, and on the edges too. I did the same with a bunch of coordinate tags.

You know my love for fussy cutting… So I did cut out those branches and snowflakes as my embellishments…

The title of my layout was made with the Expressions stencil and Silver Metal Effect medium :

As usual, you will be able to follow my complete creative process in this video, available as the other DT videos on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

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

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!

Faux leather book wooden box

Hi there !

We are at the end of August, back-to-school is already behind us, it’s time to dive into books… Wait what ? Yes books… You know I’m talking about mixed media, right ? My project for today is an altered wooden box, in shape of a book ! And what did I do with it ? Make it look like a leather covered book !

The technique I used to create this leather look is imprint a rubber stamp into Mud Texture paste ! You just have to apply a layer of Mud paste, let it dry almost competely and then press the stamp over the paste and remove carefully…

Once dry, you can paint it as you want. Here I used Chocolate Sorbet (you can also use the Kona Velvet) and Cocoa Shine to give this old leather look.

And I used Teal Velvet and Copper Metallic from the Patina Texture set to give an antique look at my metal embellishments.

This imprint technique is a real deal ! It does look like emboss leather !

As always, I made a video tutorial for you to follow this particular technique and enjoy the transformation of a plain wood box into an leather like book…

Thank you for stopping by the blog today ! I hope you liked this new project… See you soon for another one !

Have a great day !

Altered Chinese fan with the patina set

Hello there !

I’m so glad to be back on the Art anthology blog ! It was a long summer without crafting during my vacation and it’s so good to create again ! What do I have for you today ? Another mixed media project ! This time I altered a Chinese wood fan using the Patina set, stencils, Mud Paste… Take a look !

After a coat of Gesso, I painted entirely the fan with Rose Velvet medium. Next, I used the Floral tiles stencil with Teal Matte from the Patina set. Once dry, I applied Mud paste over the Blossom stencil on each side of the fan.

To colorize and give dimension to the cherry blossom branch, I use the Seafom Stone Texture and the Copper Metallic from the same Patina set. To make it pop from the background, I just use a brown pen to outline the design. I also use the Copper on the edge of the fan.

After that, I just glued the embellishments covered in white gesso on the fan, and painted them with Rose Velvet or Teal matte (Patina set) before adding touches of Copper Metallic.

If you like to know more about the process of this project, you could watch the video tutorial here or on the AA channel there (where you could find other beautiful projects…).

Thank you for stopping by today ! I hope to see you very soon for another project…
