Christmas layout

Hello there !

It’s Christmas soon, and you will have plenty of pictures to scrap ! Or, if you are like me, you have tons of pictures you should have scrap already… So let’s add another page to your Christmas scrapbook that you can made with our lovely Art Anthology products !

Let’s start with the background… The poinsettias are draw with a stencil and paint withe Ruby Red Shine. You can also see the Dot Matrix and the Chevron stencil in use.

In the AA products range, I used Colorations sprays in Warm and Raider, as well as Indulgence Minx.

I love using stencils, they are so versatile ! I think one of my favorite way to use stencil is to help me draw design with a fine pen. But it’s fun with an ink pad, or paste or medium too !

Another technique I like is the ink resist. My brown paper was ink resist, so I played with the Ruby Red Shine, and it works well too !

If you want to learn how I create this layout, watch my video tutorial on the Art Anthology channel or there :

Thank you for your time, have a wonderful Holidays time, and see you soon !

Fall meet Winter canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with something different from what I’m usually creating… it’s a canvas, to show you that you can paint with gel mediums as well as if it’s was acrylic, even if like me you’re not a painter !

After covering my canvas with white gesso, I started by applying grey (I used 50 shades but you can use Pewter) and Silver Metal Effect all over the canvas, then adding touches of red Desire Velvet with a small brush, using something water to dilute the color.

Then I added touches of Gold Metal Effect, Tango Velvet and Portobello Velvet to create different shades of leaves.

The trees are drawn with Tuxedo Velvet medium, with brushes of Onyx Shine. Few more brushes of Cotton Velvet to powder the landscape and I was done.

You should give it a try, it’s fun to create a canvas without pressure (we are not looking to create a masterpiece after all), and I have a little video tutorial to help you start with blank canvas by showing you how I did this one :

Thank you for your time, I hope this post will give give you some inspiration to create a canvas of your own.

See you soon with another project !

Day of the Dead pumpkin

Hi there !

Valerie today to show you a project where you can have fun with mediums ! You don’t have to be an artist (and I am sure not one when it’s about fine painting…) to play with paints, just the desire to have a good time. Here is the result of my playtime with mediums :

I use a pencil to draw the Day of the Dead design on my plastic pumpkin and then fill it with Shine mediums in Ocean Blue, Canary Yellow, Ruby Red, Azalea Pink, Teal Blue and Sunrise Orange.

I outlined the colored design with Onyx Black to make it pop.

I made a video tutorial to show how create it (I love accelerated videos, it looks like like I know exactly what I’m doing…) :

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

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 !

A patchwork art journal spread with Daniëlle

Hi guys,

Daniëlle here to show you what I’ve created for the current color challenge. I love broght and bold colors so this months moodboard made me really happy!

As you all know I am a big fan of art journaling so I created this patchwork art journal spread:

First I created the patches with velvets (Desire, Taxi cab and Shamrock). Later on I added Canary yellow shine on the yellow patch for some difference in surface. Next I used a stencil and Kelly green shine on the red patch & a different stencil and desire velvet on the yellow patch. I filled the green patches with a nice text and a tulip stamp (which I colored with kelly green shine and ferrari sorbet). Do a little doodling and your page is complete!

 

Here ar some extra pics of the pages:

Have a good, creative day!
