De-light-ed : a scrapbooking layout by Valerie

Hello crafty people !

I have a new layout to share with you today, with a design inspired by the subject of the picture I choose… When I was in Istanbul, I stopped by a lamp merchant in the Grand Bazaar. He sold beautiful lamps made of colored glass, and I did not resist to take a picture…

I built this layout like a mosaic, mixing classic designs and modern color blocks, as Istanbul appears to me, a mix of ancient history and appetite for modernity. Take a look at the result :

On a green paper, I started to built the background with brown ink and stamps, with the chain stamp and flourish designs looking like chandeliers.

Keyhole stencil and Copper Metal Effect medium added some dimensions to the page.

The color blocks were created with ink and heavy white cardstock. The color are : Colorations spray Indigo (blue), Colorations spray Patience (pink) and Radience Minx Shimmering ink (orange).

I also spray Sandcastle Colorations over the background before adhering the blocks.

If you want to learn more about how I created this layout, watch the video here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today ! I hope you enjoy this new project as much as I enjoyed creating it for you !

See you soon for another whatever-I-wil-make !

Art Journal tutorial

Bonjour !

Valerie today to present you a new tutorial : a mixed media Art Journal !

I love create scrapbook pages, but sometimes I just want to put some colors on paper, add a little stamp or two, nothing fancy but satisfying for my creating cravings… Using paints, inks, stencils and stamps on a journal spread is perfect for this kind of mood ! And as I wanted some sunshine (that I didn’t have outside), my pages are very sunny…

Starting with Glorious Colorations spray and Allure Minx, I built the background with the Retro and Blocked stencils and the Juicy Colorations spray and Tango Velvet Dimensional medium.

Few stamps colored with Patience Colorations spray and Red Velvet Sorbet Dimensional medium, some alpha stickers and a black pen and you’re done!

As usual, you will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just watch it from here :

Thank you for stopping by the AA blog today, see you soon for my next project…

Altered butterfly chipboard album

Hello everyone !

Valerie there to present you a new project with Art Anthology inks and paints… This time I made a mini album with the cheap chipboard album you can find in the dollar section of craft shops, crackle paste and three Colorations sprays :

Each page was covered with white gesso, then white crackle paste, and once dry, painted with a brush and Colorations sprays in Glorious, Ink and Juicy.

The inks spraid into the crackles to create a beautiful effect different on each page.

The air dry key was covered with Reef Velvet paint. Few flowers and leaves and you’ll will not been able to say it was a cheap chipboard album !

To see how I turn a basic into a gorgeous album, watch the video on the Art Anthology YouTube channel or just here :

Scrapbooking layout built with inks

Hello !

Valerie here to show you how to build a stunning background only with inks and papers !

Few stripes of paper and two inks are enough to create dimensions on the background. I used the Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Warm with a paint brush and water (see the link to products at the end of this post).

I layered pieces of papers from the same stack and added three die cut sprayed with Waimea Bay to drawn the eye to the picture. Drops of gesso are the final touches to this layout.

You will find the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Steampunk heart canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with a new mixed media project using AA paints, inks and stencil ! I called it “La fabrique a bonheur” (hapiness manufacture).

 

Layering the different mediums was the key to obtain this rusty look. I used two Velvet in Tango and Portobello, and three Colorations sprays, in Juicy, French Toast and Siesta Key.

Texture is created with special powder and heat, dimension by layering cardboard gears and grunge board strips.

You can watch the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, as well as other tutorials…

Here is the list of AA products to create this canvas :
