Today is full of possibilities by Lisa

Hi friends! Lisa here today to show you my last art journal pages, made with beautiful Velvet paints & Colorations sprays by Art Anthology! This is my last post with AA design team, I felt very honored to be part of it in these six months and I thank those who believed in me and gave me this fabulous opportunity! I hope to have inspired you with my projects in these months, and this is another one just for you!

To start I brushed white gesso, then modelling paste through AA stencil and I let it dry.

After that I used Colorations sprays (Siesta Key, Plush and Glorious) on my background, with a brush and a little bit of water to blend the colors.

Then I used some stamps with archival inks.

So I glued some paper embellishments and I made splatters with Velvet Paint (DayGlow, Tuxedo and Cotton)

Here some close ups photos:

BE HAPPY TOGETHER

Good morning everyone. I am back with a colorful Travel Notebook Layout I created using a stencil and Coloration Spray (Salmon) from Art Anthology. I’ve been itching to buy new papers and stickers, but before I do… I am determined to use up my stash! So far, it’s working and it feels great to save a few dollars…and use up the products I have on my shelf.

 

I mixed the Salmon Coloration Spray with Molding paste to create a pink shade. Then I covered the stencil using the medium. It steeped under the stencil a bit because it wasn’t think enough…but that’s OK. I just wanted to add some texture to the layout so it was fine.

I added lots of embellishments at the bottom to complete the layout. Since the photo was my main focus, I kept the design pretty simple.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Here’s a process video!

WINTER TIME

Happy New Year!! It’s hard to believe another year has passed. People have told me over the years… time flies, the older you get. They are so right! It’s scary how fast time flies. I’m going to have a 10 year old (double digits) next month. THAT’S SCARY!

My little man loves the snow. Last year we only got a few inches. Hopefully, this year we will get a little more so he can really enjoy it. Today, I’m sharing a layout I created using Coloration Sprays (Sky, Granny Smith, and Salmon) and the Meridian Stencil. I love these colors together.

To begin, I prepped the page with Clear Gesso. Once the gesso was completely dry, I placed the Meridian Stencil onto the cardstock and then sprayed about 12 inches above the stencil using the Granny Smith. When spraying multiple colors, I start with the lightest colors first and work my way up to the darker colors.

After spraying the Granny Smith, I carefully lifted the stencil and moved it to a different area on the cardstock and sprayed over the stencil using the Salmon Coloration Spray. I repeated the same process with the Sky Coloration Spray.

I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time. Once the ink was completely dry, I added my embellishments!

I used papers and embellishments from Studio Forty to design this layout. Love these chipboard pieces and the wooden enamel buttons.

I used an acrylic stamp to stamp the “Winter Time” title at the top of the layout and then I stamped “Joy” on one of the squares.

Create Art by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa today to share with you my last art journal pages, playing with AA Stencil, Colorations sprays and paints!

To start I glued some white paper doilies down on my pages and then I brushed white gesso.

I chose AA Stencil Flity and I used it with modelling paste.

With a brush and a little bit of water I used some Colorations sprays all around my pages until I was happy with the blend of colours. I wanted to create a rainbow effect!
After that I used some stamps with archival inks blue, purple and black.

After that I used Tuxedo Velvet Paint to made some ink splatters and I built my focal point with some paper embellishments.

Some details for you:

Christmas Card inspiration with Daniëlle

Hi guys!

How are you doing? I have a quick inspirational post for you today. Every year I create some Christmas cards and this year I used an Art Anthology background for them.

I created the background using three colorations sprays colors, Minx inks and Fairy Dust with a stencil. As you can see I also added some background stamping, a different text for each card. I also added a layer of clear coat sterling through a stencil. Add a cute image and text and your cards are ready! I like my Christmas cards all shiny and sparkly so I use lots of Minx, Fairy Dust and clear coat. I also use pearlescent cardstock but that’s quite hard to photograph.

I hope to inspire you to create a quick little Christmas card yourself!

See you again soon!

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:

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:

Art Anthology/Minx-Shimmering Inks (Panache, Bankroll, Stargazer)

Art Anthology/Metal Effects Medium

Art Anthology/8 1/2″X11″ Lotus Stencil

Pinkfresh Studio Embellishments

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

Stencil: Lattice
