Dreamer of Dreams Canvas by Toni

Hi artsy friends, it’s Toni here and I have for you a fun and funky canvas today, taking me back to my old macrame days in the 70’s thought I would create a fun dream catcher. Let’s get started.  We have some wonderful new stencils available in our store and today I used Twinkle Lights to create my background using Mud. Then sprayed with Colorations in Siesta Key and Glorious. Minx Shimmering Inks in Panache and Allure added some pretty shimmer. Shine paints in Canary, Teal and Onyx altered up my clay feathers.

I had fun revisiting my “hippie” era…lol and making this very simple dreamcatcher from an old plastic lid, twine and some beads.Hope you have enjoyed this and for your pleasure I have included for you a Snapguide tutorial below…… Peace

AA products used are :

Colorations – Siesta Key, Glorious

Minx- Panache, Allure

Shine – Onyx, Teal, Canary

Mud Paste

Stencil- Twinkle Lights

Ink resist technique layout

Hello !

I’m back from the Art Anthology cruise (you have to signed up for the next one by the way !) with a new layout and a cool ink resist technique :

Did you know that you can create a resist effect with any of our AA mediums ? I choose the Glass Sorbet because it dries transparent, but depending on what you want, you can choose any other color ! I applied the Glass over the Retro stencil and dried it before adding colors…

I choose two tones of green to spray over the medium : Granny Smith and Clover Colorations sprays. Same on some of the die cuts used as embellishments.

You can also spot Glorious Colorations spray, as well as Gold Dust Minx and Gilded Gold Fairy Dust spray on this layout.

I made a video tutorial for you to see in action how to create this ink resist effect with the Glass Sorbet. You can watch it here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

If you want to see another project where I used the resist technique (but with gel medium instead of Glass Sorbet), take a look at my Spring panel (there is a video too)…

Thank you for stopping by today ! I wish you a great Memorial Day and wonderful week to come ! See you in a few …

Altered pencil case by Valerie

Hello !

Valerie today to show you a new mixed media project ! This time I decided to alter a canvas, but in a shape of a pencil case !

I started on a plain canvas pencil case by spraying Indigo Colorations over the Diamond Grunge stencil in 6×9. I use the Meridian stencil to draw the design on the bottom left corner, applied Fiesta Velvet on the inside of the design and then Tango Velvet for the rest.

I drawn some patterns with a white paint pen on the pink and a black paint pen over the diamonds, added dots with the Dottie stencil and Limeaid velvet before adding a sentiment.

This sentiment was made with two stencils : Expressions for “be” and Inspired Grunge for the “inspired”.

Isn’t it the result a fun pencil case ? Would you use it ? If you want to make one for yourself or to offer, watch my video tutorial to guide you to the process :

Thank you for reading this post, see you at the end of the month for another project ! You still can join some of us on the Art Anthology cruise at the end of next week ! Western Carribeans sound like fun for scrappy time, don’t you think ? It could be a Mother’s day gift (and your husband can come too…).

See ya !

Folk style Art Journal pages

Hello !

Valerie here with an another colorful art journal spread filled with Art Anthology mediums !

I started with a light background of Avocado Colorations spray, followed by stamp and Clover Colrations spray

This folk beauty is stamped on tissue paper and colored with markers, as well as the flowers on this journal ! I used the Glass Sorbet to adhere and protect it from smearing.

Before adhering the tissue paper, I used the Scales stencils in size 8×12 and 6×9 with Limeaid Velvet medium. I outlined the designs with a black pen to make it pop…

I f you would like to know more about my creative process, just watch the video tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today and see you soon for another project !
