Everyday Life Mixed Media Layout

Happy Wednesday all! We are halfway through the week. Who’s looking forward to the weekend? Raises hand. Until then, I would like to share this layout I created using the Border Stencil, Colorations Sprays (Ink Spot, Sedona) and the Silver Oxide Nickel Medium.

I snapped this photo a few months ago while I was at my little beach relaxing… They were soooo pretty. Their coloring was so gorgeous with a hint of turquoise blue… LOVE. Normally, when I scrapbook a layout, I do not plan anything… I find a photo that I love and just start working my magic!

I used Pink Paislee’s Indigo and Ivy collection to create this layout. Love the colors in this collection. It is a perfect fit for the photo.

 

Once the Nickel Medium was dry, I glued the buttons in the center of the flowers I Created with the border stencil to add dimension.

The Ink Spot and Sedona Colorations Sprays  look so pretty on this layout. The colors are so vibrant.

 

Products Used:

Border Stencil

Colorations Sprays: Ink Spot, Sedona

My Choice Mixed Media Layout

Hi all. I thought I’d mix it up a bit. I tend to create lots of layouts of my son… but every now and then, I’ll look at my sister’s Facebook photos to see if I can find some pictures to scrap for her! I really had no idea where this layout would go… but it turned out perfect. It matches her personality perfectly!

My new favorite thing to do is playing with Art Anthology’s Minx Shimmering Inks! The colors are soooooo vibrant.

To begin, I covered white cardstock using clear gesso. Once the gesso was completely dry, I sprayed the cardstock with water to water it down and then I added 2-3 drops of each of the inks separately. I waited until one color was dry before applying the others so the colors would stay true to their original color.

Once I was satisfied with the background. I used Art Anthology’s Silver Metal Effects Medium. This medium works great with the 8″X12″ Lotus stencil!

I really like how the minx shimmering inks looks mixed with a bit of water on the cardstock. Love the different shapes in the background.

I used Pinkfresh Studio embellishments to embellish this layout. The flowers were hand-cut from patterned paper and then painted using the minx-shimmering inks.

Isn’t this beautiful? I might have to frame this for her…

Here is a process video so you can see how much fun minx shimmering inks are! You might be running to Art Anthology’s shop to buy a few colors of your own once you see how fun they are to play with.

Products Used:

Fun In The Sun Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone. I hope you’re having a fabulous week! Today I have a fun mixed media layout I created using a few Colorations Sprays (Patience, Salmon, Sky and Gilded Gold) and the Double Flower Stencil.

To begin, I applied clear gesso all over the white cardstock to prevent the cardstock from tearing. Once the gesso was completely dry, I placed the stencil down on the cardstock and then sprayed some Colorations Sprays here and there in the colors of Salmon, Patience, Sky and Gilded Gold. This color combination is so pretty!

I sprayed a scrap piece of cardstock using the Patience Colorations Spray to mat the photos. Then I punched a few wholes in a scrap piece of cardstock, sprayed it with the Sky Colorations Spray to create a few more layers… I love layering papers to create a fun background. Also, I rarely buy colored cardstock because I prefer using sprays to create the exact colors I want. Simple, but fun…

Love the black and white ribbon on this layout. It really makes the colors pop.

I added a few puffy stickers, gems and wood veneer embellishments along with some thread to make this layout more interested.

Products Used:

Colorations Sprays: Salmon, Sky, Patience and Gilded Gold

Stencil: Double Flower Stencil

Come see how this layout came together!

Cheese Mixed Media Layout for Beginners

Hi everyone. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout for beginners. I LOVE the Colorations Sprays in the shop and I just want to use them all…all the time. The colors are so vibrant! For this layout, I used six different colors.

Using a paint brush, I brushed the Colorations Sprays onto the cardstock that was initially white with writing. The colors used on this layout include: Granny Smith, Ink Spot, Salmon, Glorious, Plush and Juicy.

I decided to use a variety of Colorations Sprays to create a fun, happy layout and this layout just feels happy to me when I look at it. We had such a great time that day.

I used the Lattice Stencil to create splashes below the matted photos with a palette knife and Velvet Cotton.

I embellished the layout using stickers and chipboard from my stash. It feels good to use up those un-touched embellishments that have been sitting for some time.

Thanks so much for visiting today! What’s your favorite color or colors from our Colorations Sprays?

Products Used:

Colorations Sprays: Granny, Ink Spot, Salmon, Glorious, Plush, Juicy

Today/ Mixed Media Layout

Good morning! Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using a variety of mixed media mediums. For this layout, I used Velvet Dimensional Paint (Fiji, Tuxedo). I also used Sorbet in Vegas Gold…PRETTY!!! And I used Salmon and Waimea Bay Colorations Sprays. Love how vibrant these sprays are. GORGEOUS.

To begin, I sprayed the Colorations sprays onto white cardstock. Then, I used the Pebbles stencil and the Vegas Gold Velvet Paint to create a fun patterned at the bottom of the layout.

I dry brushed the Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint all over the top half of the layout. I had a general idea as to what I wanted this layout to look like and it turned out perfectly.

Once the paint was dry, I sprayed the Waimea Bay Colorations Spray all across the top of the layout and let it drip down. I did this two times. Then I used a heat gun to dry the ink.

I used the Take Flight stencil and the Tuxedo Velvet to paint the birds. Love these little guys!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today. It means so much to me!

Mixed media layout with Colorations Sprays by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa here today to share with you my last DT project for this month. This time I made a mixed media layout with some photos of my family that I particularly love… do you like to make layouts? I like it very much!

I started my layout with applying a coat of clear gesso to seal the patterned paper. I then used my finger to rub a little bit of white gesso. I made some stamps with Archival black ink and then I used modelling paste with Art Anthology Messy Bubbles stencil to create some texture

I used Colorations Sprays (Siesta Key, Barbie and Plush) to make my watercolor background. To cover the dreamcatcher chipboard I brushed Stone Effect color Bone, I love its texture!

I added my black and white photos with chipboards, embellishments and flowers

As final touch I made some splatters with Cotton Velvet with a bit of water

You can follow my step by step tutorial here

Supplies used:

Colorations Barbie, Plush and Siesta Key

Stone Effects Bone

Stencil Messy Bubbles

Cotton Velvet 

I hope you enjoyed my mixed media layout with Art Anthology products!  For more ideas visit us on Pinterest and also join our Facebook group, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

Colorations Sprays Rainbow Stenciled Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone!  Suzanne here today to share with you a vibrant and colorful rainbow layout courtesy of Art Anthology Colorations Sprays and Stencils!   This layout is much simpler than I’m accustomed to creating, but I love that the Colorations Sprays lend so much of a colorful punch that simple is all that’s needed!

I begin the layout by centering  the Wheel Stencil onto a piece of a white cardstock. Using an array of Art Anthology Colorations Sprays, start misting the colors in sections onto the stencil.

Take note to spray complimentary colors next to each other. If the colors bleed, it’ll add a new color which contributes to the rainbow effect!

Once all sprays have been applied, Lift the stencil up and away from the page. Tip: to prevent over spray, simply mask off the edges of the stencil with scrap paper; a good way to “clean” the stencil is to to sandwich between pages in your art journal or pick up the color with tags!

While the mists are drying, it’s time to add a little embellishing with the Industrial Stencil. Although Art Anthology mists and paints work beautifully with the stencils, I opted to use a permanent marker!  I am an amazingly messy scrapper, but with this particular application, I wanted to be just a tad neater.

On a separate piece of cardstock, simply use a broad-tip permanent marker to “color in” the edge of the design of the Industrial stencil-cut the design from the cardstock to use as a design element!

All that’s left to do is to assemble the layout with patterned paper, flower embellishments, and to splatter coordinating colors on the wheel for a little added detail and interest!

Needless to say, I LOVE these sprays!  They have been a joy to work with, and I am certain they will be called upon often in my crafty adventures! Here’s a list of the Colorations Sprays and Stencils used to create this layout.

Supplies:
Colorations: Barbie, Glorious, Siesta Key, Patience, Sky, Granny Smith
Stencils: Industrial, Wheel 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope that I have inspired you to get into your crafty space and get some ink on your hands!  If you need more inspiration, make sure you are following us on Pinterest and don’t forget to join our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

You Make Me Happy Mixed Media Layout

 

Good morning! Nicole here with a pretty mixed media layout I created using the Flity stencil and the Patina Texture set. I love this texture set. It looks sooooo pretty on paper! The colors look perfect against the photos!

 

I covered the veneer flowers using the Patina Seafoam. Then I brushed the Sedona Colorations Spray along the edges using a paint brush. I colored the butterfly using the Sedona Colorations and added a Clear Coat (Linen) to make it shimmer a bit.

Here is a closer look at the Copper Metallic Medium. SOOOOO pretty and it goes on the cardstock/stencil smooth.

I have a feeling I’ll be using the Flity stencil again. I just love it!

I used some papers, chipboard and stickers from Pink Paislee to embellish the layout.

Here is a process video for you to see how easy it is to work with the texture sets along with the stencil and Coloration Spray! Fun stuff!

Supplies Used:

Stencil: Flity

Patina Texture Set

Coloration Spray: Sedona

Clear Coat: Linen

I hope I have inspired you to experiment with the Flity stencil with the Patina Texture set. The texture set is perfect for distressing wood veneer embellishments! Thank you for visiting today!

Create Art Journal Page by Farrel Tailor

Hi there Art Anthology Fans!!! Farrel here to share my very first design team member creation. Today I have created a double art journal page using Metal Effects Medium, Colorations Sprays and some stencils.

  1. To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.

2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.

3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.

4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.

Here is some more pictures of the finished page

Art Anthology Products Used

Metal Effects – Silver

Colorations Spray – Siesta Key, Peacock Feathers, Indigo

Stencils – Diamond Grunge, Soliloquy
