Using Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology to create a camo canvas with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I want to share a new canvas with you. I used the Colorations Sprays to create a camo looking background and I love it 🙂

I used parts of the Lotus Stencil for the focal point in the background and to add some extra texture. By using the Minx inks to outline the Lotus flower it now looks like its shining even brighter.

I always like to add hidden interest to a project. The Dazzle paint is perfect for that as it dries clear and just leaves this amazing sparkle.

But now to the process. Here is my video that is showing how I put everything together. Enjoy 🙂

These are the supplies I used:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my little canvas 🙂

Art Journal Page with Josefine

The world is my playground art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I wanted to create a blue colored page. Not because I felt blue, but because the current mood board has so many pretty blue shades. I skipped the orange and replaced with some rust though.

A few days ago I reorganized my craft room and found a couple of scraps that I really wanted to incorporate somehow. So I decided to paint a blue background, add some texture and then use the scraps for this page.

I love that it is so simple to create a nicely blended background with the art Anthology paints. It always looks like I know what I’m doing 😛

If you want to see how I put everything together, here’s a video tutorial for you:


Here are a few more close ups for you.

Altered sketchbook by Valerie

Hi everyone !

Another mixed media project (I do love creating them!) with an inexpansive sketchbook as base…

I made clay embellishments and use flowers, metal embellishments and buttons as well to adhere on the sketchbook before covering everything with black gesso.

When everything was dry, I re-colored the project with Vegas Gold and Wisteria Sorbet, and Rose Velvet, then added some Gilded Gold Fairy Dust and Plush Colorations spray.

The other additions to this project were cheesecloth and microbeads, as well as wood letters for the title.

If you like to learn more about the process of this project, take a loo at my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel, where you can find other wonderful tutorials.

Thank for stopping by and for your time reviewing this project ! Have a wonderful week end filled with creativity !

Song of Ice and Fire with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends ! Irit is here and I welcome you to my last post as Art Anthology Design Team member.

It was a great year with Art Anthology, but even good things finally end and we move to another adventures.

So today I am going to share an art page made as my tribute to the most known  TV show- Game of Thrones.

Actually I am more book lover than TV lover, so I made it as a ” Song of Ice and Fire” page with the dragon as the main image. Also I added some film strips around, but it was to add some interest and depth to the page with more layers added to main embellishments cluster.

As you can see that background was made over the Mixed Media cardstock with two Art Anthology stencils and texture paste.

Then two embossing glitters were added over the wet paste and heat embossed to get this distressed look of the glittered paste.

As always I have a full step by step tutorial made with Snapguide HERE :
Check out How to Make Dragon Mixed Media Art Page by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Lagoon Velvet paint

Mermaid Sorbet paint

Black Jacket Leather Sorbet

Mardi Gras Velvet

Siesta Key Colorations spray

Plush Colorations Spray

Wimea Bay Colorations spray

Wild Orchid Colorations Spray

So see you on the web and maybe in person some day when I come to CHA. In the meantime- enjoy your crafting with Art Anthology as much I do.

How to Give a Book a New Life as Bookbox !!

Ellie Knol here again, yes, sadly for the last time now, as I step down from the design team after being here for a year..

…but don’t be sad, there are very talented new design team members already here now!

Thanks Stayce for having me, I really had fun working (playing) with your beautiful product! They will stay in my stash and I am sure I will USE them!

This time I chose to alter a book into a bookbox. It was a looooooot of work!

I gave myself some homework: and I must say: mission accomplished…

I wanted to know whether I like to work on a white or black surface better?! I still don’t know the answer.. I like them both.

 

 I chose to use the colors from the current moodboard:

Halloween Canvas

Ooozing eyeballs Halloween canvas with Josefine

How about a mixed media Halloween canvas with oozing eyeballs and poison paste? Art Anthology products are perfect for drippy backgrounds and thick texture alike. And it’s still enough time to create some more spooky things – despite all the Christmas decoration that is already up in my grocery store.

I’m a fan of these smaller, card sized projects and love to decorate a canvas like that. The smaller area makes it easier to get started, but also challenges you to “organize” your space better. So let me show you what I did with this little canvas.

And? Oozing enough? 😛
I’m impressed with the stone effect paste. Even though I mixed with one of the Sorbet’s it dried in a neat texture.

Thanks for stopping by!

Steampunk tag with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends !
Irit is here today and  I welcome to my new Mixed Media tag project.
As you already know I am a big fan of all things Steampunk and grungy and this tag is this kind of a project.

I didn’t add the title or saying to this tag  as it’s just for art made tag, not anything to really give away or to use for a purpose.
So as you can see the background was made with Art Anthology stencils and different Art Anthology paints, sprays and mediums.
I added a lot of chipboards, mostly from Creative Embellishments with some silk and paper flowers, old lace fabric and a vintage style broach.

 

Here are some close- ups to this tag mostly to show you the background.

 

 

And as always – here is a full step by step tutorial  for you to follow and to make the very similar project:

Check out How to Make a Steampunk Mixed Media Tag by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

And here is the full  products list for this project:

Copper Metal effects 

Black Leather Jacket Sorbet

Terracotta – retired paint

Pipe dream stencil

Amber dimensional gemstones

Mermaid Sorbet

Waimea Bay Colorations Spray

Fiji Velvet

Glorious Colorations spray

Vegas Gold Sorbet

I hope that you like my Mixed Media tag and would try to do the similar one with gorgeous Art Anthology products.
