Fairy Mixed Media Canvas

Hey Crafty Friends Phyllis here today to share with you my latest Mixed Media Canvas!

I wanted to use pastel colors this time with some fun Art Anthology products!

Most of my projects aren’t planned and I really don’t have any idea how it’s going to turn out.  I usually start out with figuring out a color combo and then go from there!

Art Anthology dimensional paints and sprays are so much fun to create with,  I love the texture of the dimensional paints and of course love the glitter for a touch of sparkle!

I used Art Anthology’s Such a Drip Stencil for interest and texture using MUD texture paste!

I hope you are inspired to try some Amazing Art Anthology products!  They are so fun to create with!

I also have a Snapguide tutorial below so you can see how I created the background for this Mixed Media Canvas!

Canvas “Sea”

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here with my newest inspiration. I want to show You today a mixed media canvas with sand, waves and blue sky. It’s this kind of project that You create just for fun. Full of experiments, playing with colors and mediums.

I also prepared a process video for You.

I used 8*8 canvas as a base. I was inspired by the beautiful blue Velvet and Sorbets. Last time I showed You layout created with them. This time I thought that they will look awesome as a shades of sea surface.

DSC_6826a

I created two different parts on one canvas – heavy, full of textures sea and soft, watercolor sky. I love how many possibilities You have with many kind od mediums such as mists or dimensional paints.

I was finally able to use my Prima reisins that I bought ages ago. I painted them with a brush. Thanks to that the blended perfectly in my canvas.

Serenity

Hello Art Anthology friends! Debbie with today sharing a layout that was especially fun to create. The photo is one of my favorites and Wisteria is in my top ten of favorite flowers! The Flowers are hand made using dies and the rose leaves are chipboard that has been altered to match the layout and flowers. Today I’m going to share how I altered the chipboard using Art Anthology Colorations  but first we will talk about the background of the layout.

IMG_2509

To create the background follow these steps:

Begin by tracing around where the matting and photo will be placed.

106_7769

Add your Mud and stenciling. Allow to dry.

106_7771

Spray the background with Colorations Peacock Feathers.

106_7772

Adhere your photo and mats using cardboard for dimension. Using VersaMark clear embossing ink and 2 colors of embossing powder, emboss your stenciling.

106_7773

Add splatters using Minx in Midnight to your layout.

106_7774

Gesso all chipboard pieces.

Spray with Colorations in Peacock Feathers.

Emboss with Versa Mark and Utee thick enamal embossing powder.

Repeat.

106_7775

When the embossing is set spray with Colorations in Gilded Gold and reheat until it melts into the Utee.

IMG_2517

This technique will give your chipboard gold metal flecks and give it a wet look.

I hope you give this a try it will give your layouts a unique look!

Thanks for stopping by the Art Anthology Blog today!!

Hi Crafty Friends!

Hi Crafty Friends Phyllis Fernandez here to share my first Design Team project for Art Anthology.  I am humbled and super excited to be a part of the Dream Team!

I love creating 12×12 scrapbook layout pages!  So that’s what I will be sharing with you today!

DSC00025 (1)

Although my favorite color to create with is any blue,  the Salmon and French Toast colorations sprays,  Garnet and Rhodolite Gemstones,  and Enchanting Minx were what I grabbed first!  They worked well together.

DSC00032

I LOVE lots of texture,  more is better in my book!!!  😀

DSC00016 (1)

The flowers matched perfectly with Art Anthology products I used!    So Yummy!!!

DSC00019 (1)

I painted Rhodolite Gemstones on the chipboard pieces and WOW I am in LOVE with the Gemstones,  the texture is awesome and it dries quickly!

I did some stenciling for the background using Art Anthology’s Mud.

DSC00030

I also love to distress my edges,  gives more dimension to a layout!

DSC00018 (1)

I always love to use beads and microbeads for added interest and texture.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

I hope that I’ve inspired you to create something beautiful!

Journey Canvas using Minx Inks

Good morning everyone! I deviated somewhat from my normal colors and went with a grungier look for this canvas. I used a combination of Minx inks, Colorations, Velvets, and Sorbet. Journey Everything is layered and then layered some more. The key is making sure everything is good and dry between applications of paint. To see step-by-step how I created this canvas, please see my Snapguide: Check out How to Create a Colorful Mixed Media Canvas Using Minx by Art Anthology on Snapguide. Here are a few closeups. I tried to capture how Minx gave the canvas a nice shimmer. 2015-12-29 10.47.38 2015-12-29 10.47.30 2015-12-29 10.47.23 2015-12-29 10.47.18 Journey Close Thank you for looking.
