Japanese style bookmarks

Hello crafters !

Valerie again with a project inspired by my recent visit to a bookstore, where I bought two Japanese books. I have a soft spot for the beauty and elegance of Japanese culture, and it inspire me to create these bookmarks :

I choose colors reminding me of the Land of the Rising Sun : Timeless, Juicy and Barbie for the Colorations sprays, and Coral for the Sorbet Dimensional paint.

I choose the Blocked stencil as a reminder of the square design in the stamp, and the Retro one because it looks like colorful sun on the bookmark.

You will find the complete video tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel.

Thank you for reading this post and see you soon for another project !







Just playing – on an art journal page

I played, yes .. and I had fun..!!

Ellie Knol here today…

I decided to just go with the flow… and see where that would take me. I grabbed all sorts of colors that I thought would be nice together, greens, blues, oranges and a red, velvets, sorbets and a gemstones.

Here you can see the first 3 greens: Leaf Sorbet, Limited Velvet and Emerald Gemstones, scraping a tiny bit randomly over the page to make transparant layers.  Don’t try to cover the whole of it with each color, just here and there, and sometimes overlapping. After this step I’ve used lots more colors. For that, go see the Snapguide at the bottom of the post.

Those eyes really are an eye-catcher on the page – LOVE it!

Upcycle a mirror frame !

Good day to you all from me, Ellie Knol !
.. glad you’re having a look here!
I have a fun project for you today! 

When I found an old mirror frame in my (always growing) to-be-altered stash, I immediately knew I wanted to re-use it, with a purpose!


 I chose for the lagoon color, as my daughter has a wall with this color in her new home.

Hope she will like it.

LOVE the cracking, and added color of the Lagoon Velvet Dimensional Paint.
Also.. the black underneath the cracks, has a beautiful shimmer to it from the Black Leather Jacket Sorbet Dimensional Paint.


Of course I’ve made a step-by-step with Snapguide for you! Go check it out!

Create 12×12 backgrounds with Colorations, stencils and sorbet

Hi, Ellie Knol here again today!

See what magic you can create by just playing with the products from Art Anthology!!

Today I’ll take you through the steps of creating a 12×12 background with sorbets, Colorations ink sprays, stencils, texture paste and gesso. It can be cut up to smaller pieces for cards, ATC’s or maybe a board for home-decorating.

art-anthology-terragroen-masterboard-background-cat-collage-ellie-knol-25The card above has been created from an A6 part of the background.


I LOVE the structure from the stencils and texture paste, and the depth the sprayinks give. art-anthology-terragroen-masterboard-background-cat-collage-ellie-knol-23

Canvas “heART”

Hello. It’s Anna here with my second inspiration for Art Anthology.

Today I want to show You red and gold canvas. I had the idea of this kind of project for a while in my head and AA paints were just perfect to bring this idea to life. I also have a process video for You. Search for it in the end of this post.



I chose round canvas and played with cotton fabric to create dimensional heart.

And here are just a few close-ups for the background and structure of my canvas.
