Simple Stenciled Mixed-Media Layout

Hey everyone! Suzanne here to share an easy mixed-media scrapbook layout using minimal supplies! With the aid of only one Art Anthology Stencil and Colorations Spray, this layout came together with very little effort!

Like most of my layouts, I begin with a piece of heavyweight cardstock. Using the Dot Matrix stencil, I randomly applied light molding paste through the stencil; this adds tone on tone texture to the background.

While the paste dries, I take my leaf cardstock die-cuts and simply give them a spritz of Colorations Spray. All that’s left is to assemble the photo and remaining print and cut die cuts to the dried stenciling!

Art Anthology Supplies:
Colorations Spray “Salmon”
Dot Matrix Stencil

Other Supplies:
White cardstock and patterned paper
cardstock die-cuts
sticker embellishments

Blossom: A Journal Page

Hello, With all that is going on I have been suffering from “artist block” lately. Everyone is self isolating (full house) and it is difficult getting work done peacefully. When I am lost for inspiration I try art journaling. This usually helps me free up and ideas start to flow again. It was a slow uphill battle but I managed to get a page done.

I made a warm and vibrant textured page using Art Anthology Dimensional Mediums. I then added texture paste and when dry, added some of the new Art Anthology gilders wax to the raised areas of my stenciled image.

Here are the supplies I used:

Together Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone! Do you ever feel giddy when completing a crafty project? I don’t usually get really excited about my work, but this layout has me feeling giddy and happy! This must be one of the longest projects I have ever created on a layout… I worked on this piece for a good two hours…but the end result is totally worth while. I just love it!

To begin, I mixed a little bit of the  Flamingo Sorbet Dimensional Paint with some of the Glass Sorbet Dimensional Paint to lighten up the color a bit. I wanted more of a bubblegum pick background. I used a silicone brush to scrape the paint across the cardstock so the paint was nice and even. 

Once the pink was dry, I added a few layers of the Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint across the top of the layout. I added about four layers of the Mermaid paint so the color would be as vibrant as possible. This took time because I had to make sure each layer was completely dry before applying the next layer, otherwise the paint would look muddy. 

After the paint was completely dry, I decided to add some of the Vegas Gold Dimensional Paint. The colors look soooooo pretty together! I used the Metal Effects Dimensional Medium and Flity Stencil to create silver flowers at the bottom of the layout.

Since I only had clear jewels I used my markers to color them! They look perfect! Then I cut two hearts free-handed from cardstock and painted them to use as frames for the layout.

Since I didn’t have any embellishments that would go well with the colors with the exception of a few stickers I used stamps and markers to create the flowers! This took a lot of time, but I enjoyed the process!

Products Used:

Sorbet Dimensional Paint (GlassVegas GoldFlamingoMermaid)

Metal Effects Dimensional Medium

Flity Stencil

Coloration Spray: Raider

Stamps/Markers: Altenew

Embellishments: Citrus Twist/Pink Paislee, Heidi Swapp 

What is your favorite thing about this layout? I love everything about it! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I inspired you to try one of my techniques from this layout!

Stamping with a Stencil!

Hey everyone! Suzanne here to share a layout that I’ve created using a favorite technique of mine-stamping with a stencil (reverse stenciling)! I love to use this technique because the results are organic and hardly ever the same, and because it’s a really easy way to get color on the background of a layout. You can’t go wrong with this technique no matter your level of experience!

Beginning with Colorations Sprays in Waimea Bay and Siesta Key and the Dot Matrix Stencil, I randomly spritz one side of the stencil with both colors; I placed a paper towel under the stencil when I did this, but you can also place a separate piece of cardstock underneath and use it for another project. Next, I simply raised the stencil and placed it on top of my cardstock-pressing gently to allow the design to stamp onto the background. I repeat this step a couple of times until I’m pleased with the design.

I allowed the background to dry, and after a few splatters, all that’s left to do is assemble the layout! The impression from the stencil left a very cool textured watercolor effect! Here are a few close-ups!

Other Supplies:
White cardstock and patterned paper
cardstock diecuts
sticker embellishments

Mixed Media Sea Tag

Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Jenn here today sharing a fun mixed media tag with a Sea theme. I have used Art Anthology Colorations Sprays, Minx Shimmering Inks, and Stencil.

AA Colorations Sprays – Timeless, Siesta Key
AA Minx Shimmering Ink – Gold Dust
AA Stencil – Messy Bubbles

To create my tag, I first adhered a grungy style paper to it and roughed up the edges. I also inked the edges using a brown distress ink. Next, I added some texture paste through the messy Bubbles stencils and let it dry. I smeared some crackle paste here and there and let that dry as well

Next I added AA Colorations Sprays alternating between the colors and drying in between with my heat tool. I then added the amazing shimmer seen using Minx in Gold Dust!

I love how the color settles in all of the crackle paste adding texture!

To finish my tag, I added lots of sea elements using shells, chipboards, paper and art stones.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog and viewing my post today! I hope that you are inspired to create something today!

ART JOURNAL SPREAD BY NICOLE MARTEL

Good morning everyone. I’ve been getting my hands dirty. I love playing with mixed media products. It really warms my soul. This art journal spread took a long time to create because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the background. I think there’s probably three different colors beneath this spread that I covered up… A bit of gesso will change everything… remember that for your next mixed media project. 

I used Art Anthology’s Coloration Sprays Plush and Sky for the background with some other acrylic paints I had in my stash. I covered the Double Flower stencil on plain cardstock using molding paste. Once the paste was completely dry, I sprayed some Coloration sprays over it and used a baby wipe to blend in the colors a bit.

I colored two wood veneer hearts using a purple marker and the Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint then I added a few layers of the Sorbet Clear Coat Dimensional Paint (Linen) to add some shimmer. It looks so pretty!!!

Here are a few close up photos of the stickers, die cuts and gems.

Products Used: Art Anthology Coloration Sprays (Sky and Plush), Sorbet Clear Top Dimensional Paint (Linen), Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint, Art Anthology Double Flower Stencil ( Patterned Paper/Stickers: Creative Memories, Gems: Pinkfresh Studio, Metal Die: Pinkfresh Studio, Art Journal Canvas Stitched Page and Molding Paste: Bad Girls Couture.

Products Used: Coloration Sprays (Plush, Sky), Double Flower Stencil and Sorbet Linen and Mermaid.
