“Breath In Breath Out’ Mixed Media Layout

Hi everyone, today I want to share how very simple it is to add some mixed media elements to your scrapbook layout. Mixed media has gotten so popular but still so many are intimidated by the word “Mixed Media”. I’m here today to tell you if you are a scrapper or card maker, chances are you are already doing mixed media.

Wikipedia says: Mixed media is an artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed. Assemblages and collages are two common examples of art using different media that will make use of different materials including cloth, paper, wood and found objects. So, what that means if you are a card maker you use paper, sometimes stamping with ink, adding embellishments, sometimes markers etc…. you are already doing mixed media. So don’t let the word scare you any longer. Let’s get started with this very simple layout.  I really wanted the colors on this to be very subtle so that my photo would really be the focal point. So the Art Anthology paints I used were our Metal Effects and our Stone Effects (all products will be listed below in the video discription)With the use of a couple of our stencils (and we have so many to choose from) this provided added patterns to my paper as well as texture. With the addition of some seed beads (because I can’t ever get enough texture… lol) and pretty flowers, my layout was finished. I hope you give this a try. Below is a process video of me creating this layout. If you have any questions or would like to see the designers use the product in a certain way, be sure to follow us on Facebook HERE and just ask us questions. We are all here to help one another on our creative journey. xoxo Toni

Creating a planner dashboard with Daniëlle

Hi there!

It’s Daniëlle here and I’ve been creating some pages in my planner for you. I create my own plannerpages, so I can decide how much space I need for my weeklies. This time I’ve got a planner dashboard and a weekly layout for you:

This is the weekly layout I’m using this month:

Here’s a step by step tutorial for you, if you want to create some pages yourself:

Mixed media ATC with new medium colors

Hi there !

Did you try the new colors already ? If not, let me show their goodness in a new project, ATCs !

Starting with white cardstock, I sprayed Waimea Bay Colorations. Then I droped water over it and remove it with a paper towel to let the white appear.

Using the Bubbles stencil, I drawn randomly some circles with a black pen, and paint inside them with the new Shine Ocean.

Once dried, I stamped some round designs before applying the new Flamingo over the Diamond Pattern stencil.

The flower are black die cuts with a shadow painted with the new Sorbet Summer and the journaling is stamped and cut.

The final touch was to distress the edges of the ATCs with black ink.

Here is my tutorial for this project, but you can also watch it on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

This is my last post with Art Anthology. It has been two wonderful year. Thanks to you for viewing my projects, even maybe watching my videos ! See you around the crafty world !

Scrapbooking layout in red and blue

Hello everyone !

Back with a layout this time, playing with Velvet, stencil and ink for a neutral gender look, as the picture I choose featured my daughter and my nephew… So blue, red and black are my color choices…

After using a chicken wire stamp on the edges of the paper, I applied the Beyond the Reef medium and the Desire Velvet over the Wheel stencil to achieve my background.

The Beyond the Reef medium also colored few of the tags of my layering.

It’s amazing how the color differ with the thickness… when use as paint, I obtained a beautiful water-like blue, and as medium over the stencil, this blue is very deep !

Before layering my papers and picture, I used the Raider Colorations spray to create the small ink spots on my background…

Here is the video tutorial if you want to take a look at my creative process…

Thank you for your time, see you soon for another project…

If you’re lucky enough to be different, never change.

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I last created an art journal page for you guys so that’s what I have for you today!

For this page I created my own shimmering ink spray! I just put some Sandcastle colorations with Gold dust minx ink and Decadent minx ink in an old spray bottle and added some water. I kept adding the colors until I was happy with the result:

I created a snapguide tutorial for you guys, so you can create this page too if you like 😉

Mixed Media Flower Canvas by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here and I’m having so much fun with some of Art Anthology’s NEW products… Have you checked out the store… WOW so many beautiful NEW stencils and so many gorgeous NEW colors of dimensional paints. I used the new Double Flower Stencil for this canvas. Prepped the canvas first with crackle medium and allowed it to dry. Then I created my flowers using a different method of appying the paint to the stencils. Instead of adding the medium and then swiping the excess, I applied the paints like frosting a cake and left it thick…. check out my video below for more details. Applying it this way provided a wonderful dimensional texture. And it’s so easy with Art Anthology’s gel based paints. Once the flowers were dry, I fussy cut all of them and adhered them to the canvas and highlighted the shadow areas with Minx Shimmering Inks. Finishing off the canvas with a dry brushing of Amber Sorbet (from the rust set). Hope you give this technique a try, so much fun experimenting with mixed media. Wishing you a day filled with love & peace.

For your pleasure I have included a video to share my creative process. xoxo Toni

Daffodil card with mediums and stencil

Hello everyone !

Here I am again with a different project, still inspired but Spring but in terms of colors this time, and by my favorite artistic movement, the Art Nouveau :

This card was first cut with an electronic machine, but dies can work too…

I use the resist technique with the Art Nouveau stencil and Glass Sorbet, as well as Glorious and Avocado (you can use Granny Smith too) Colorations sprays, on the center part of the card.

Frame, card base and stem were painted in Kelly Green Shine and Shamrock Velvet (you can use Gecko Green Velvet instead).

The flowers were painted with Canary Shine and Dayglow Yellow. The mat was in Dayglow Yellow too.

I just add a sentiment to finish my card…

As usual, here is my video tutorial to guide you to create this card :

Thank you for your time, see you next month for another project…

Have a great day !
