Dreamer of Dreams Canvas by Toni

Hi artsy friends, it’s Toni here and I have for you a fun and funky canvas today, taking me back to my old macrame days in the 70’s thought I would create a fun dream catcher. Let’s get started.  We have some wonderful new stencils available in our store and today I used Twinkle Lights to create my background using Mud. Then sprayed with Colorations in Siesta Key and Glorious. Minx Shimmering Inks in Panache and Allure added some pretty shimmer. Shine paints in Canary, Teal and Onyx altered up my clay feathers.

I had fun revisiting my “hippie” era…lol and making this very simple dreamcatcher from an old plastic lid, twine and some beads.Hope you have enjoyed this and for your pleasure I have included for you a Snapguide tutorial below…… Peace

AA products used are :

Colorations – Siesta Key, Glorious

Minx- Panache, Allure

Shine – Onyx, Teal, Canary

Mud Paste

Stencil- Twinkle Lights

Altered Steampunk Lamp by Toni

Hi crafty peeps, it’s Toni here with a lamp I altered for my craftroom. I purchased this simple lamp at a decor store for $25.00.

I really liked the bones of it but I knew it needed to be spruced up.  I also got these water goggles at the Dollar store and knew they would were intended for this project. 

I had a difficult time getting good photos of this project so I hope you bear with me.

I applied all my old metal pieces that I have collected over the years from garage sales and junk stores, as well as some chipboard pieces, chain, buttons, and plumbers pipes from the hardware store. The goggles were altered with hot glue, Art Anthology’s paint as well as alcohol inks. Art Anthology’s Texture Paste Set in Rust along with Mud Texture Paste helped me accomplish this rusty piece and provided some wonderful textures. Here is a photo out in the light, hopefully you can get a different look at this piece. 

And now I have a new lamp for my craftroom. I hope you have been inspired and you have enjoyed my new project. For your pleasure below is a Snapguide tutorial. xoxo Toni

Butterfly effect : an altered mask

Hello !

Who says because Mardi Gras is behind us, we cannot play with masks anymore ? Certainly not me, as I love creating new ones ! So here is my project for today :

I used 3 different material for the gears : paper, grungeboard and metal. After adhering these gears to the mask, I used the Mud Texture paste and a stamp to create more texture around the gears, before applying white gesso all over it.

Once dried, I used the Rust Texture set to highlight the gears and give them more dimensions. Then I added the Waimea Bay Colorations spray because 1. I really like this color, 2. I cannot let this mask white… Bonus : this color really enhance the rusty look.

The video tutorial is available on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, or you can just watch it here :

Thank you for your time and for stopping by on the blog. See you soon for another project…

Industrial cards with the Oxidized Silver Texture set

Hello there !

Valerie today, with a project a little bit different than the ones I’m use to… But you need to get out of your comfort zone something, right… So here I am, with a project with no bright color !

What I used for these two cards were the Oxidized silver Texture set , the Ringlets stencil, Mud texture paste and few drops of Sterling Fairy Dust (ok, white paper too).

So I started by applying Mud paste over the stencil. Once dried, I applied the ash stone texture all over it.

Then Grey matte finish and Silver Metallic on the stencil pattern. See how it looks like aged silver ?

The quote were stamped on white circle covered with the Silver Metallic medium. Used alone, it has a beautiful shiny metal finish.

Few drops of Sterling Fairy dust to complete the oxide look and I was done for my background.

If you want to know more about the process of these cards, a complete video tutorial is available for you to watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by the blog today, I hope to see you soon for another project (probably with more colors this time !).

War and sakura : a mixed media layout

Hello !

Valerie today to present you a new project… I create a scrapbooking layout using two colorations sprays, some Mud texture paste with stencil and a Gemstone Effect medium…

So why War and Sakura ? Because the subject of the picture is an Onna-Bugeisha,  a rare female warrior from the high society of Japan. Despite her armor, she is extremely feminine. Did you notice the flowers in her hair ? That’s inspired me for the sakura flowers in my layout.

I started building the background with a resist paper and Colorations sprays in Sandcastle and Patience. I use the Blossom stencil with brown ink, then add some Mud paste over the Cracked stencil.

When the Mud was dried, I stamped cherry blossom in brown ink before painted them with Rhodolite Gemstone Dimensional medium.To complete the layout, I added cherry blossom cut out from a sheet of paper.

You can watch the complete process of this page on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just here :

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you did find some inspiration for your next project !

See you soon for more…
