Time flies when you are clowning around

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here with my first March inspiration.

This time I made a square 6*6” chipboard altered board using lots of Art Anthology stencils, paints  and sprays.

This chipboard was first covered with gesso. Then I added texture paste with our fantastic Art Anthology …… stencil.

Here are some close ups for you to see:

 

 

 

The whole composition was born when I decided to add a stamped clown image over the board and to use the stamped ” Clowning around” sentiment.

This was my first time to mix Sorbet paint with 3d art stones and it worked in the best possible artistic way over the board.

As always I made a full Snapguide tutorial that you can see HERE:

And a full list of supplies  is added here for you:


Hope you liked my art piece. See you again in  two weeks with another Art Anthology inspiration.

Paint on clay Winter banner

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today and I am going to share my new Art Anthology experiment- using Art Anthology products over the dry polymer clay surfaces.

During my time on this team I try to use Art Anthology paints over different surfaces and to see the results. So far I used wood , canvas, cardstock and clear acrylic board. Today I used polymer clay pieces and I need to say that Art Anthology products work perfectly over this surfaces too.

So here is a Winter banner I made with Makin’s Clay non baked polymer clay (you just need to wait like 12 hours before it’s totally dry to apply the paints over the surface).

 

And now for some close ups to all three banner pieces:

 

 

 

 

As you can sew from those close- ups I used Art Anthology stencil and dimentional paint over the clay surface and it’s works perfectly!

So here is a full step by step tutorial for you:

I hope that I inspired you to try totally different surfaces with our fantastic products!

How to Use a Face Stencil

Happy day to you and I’m happy to share with you again !

Do you have to have drawing skills to add a face to a page? NO, not if you have these beautiful Face-It stack of stencils from Art Anthology!

I’ve created a page to show that. I do need some practice with these faces though!

There is a tutorial at the end of this post, on Snapguide.

****


Stamped script to connect the face and the rest of the page.


Mayan Velvet Dimensional paint adds interest to the hearts of the flowers.


Some detail of the collage.

Steampunk heart canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with a new mixed media project using AA paints, inks and stencil ! I called it “La fabrique a bonheur” (hapiness manufacture).

 

Layering the different mediums was the key to obtain this rusty look. I used two Velvet in Tango and Portobello, and three Colorations sprays, in Juicy, French Toast and Siesta Key.

Texture is created with special powder and heat, dimension by layering cardboard gears and grunge board strips.

You can watch the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, as well as other tutorials…

Thank you for reading this post today. See you next month for another tutorial…

Here is the list of AA products to create this canvas :

Find your Star Clear acrylic deco

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second January tutorial made for Art Anthology.

Irit is here with my new artistic inspiration made  for you.

irit_sig

This time I made a clear acrylic wall deco project using the old and forgotten acrylic page from the 7 years non used album.

I call it a kind of recycling as I never made the clear album, but I use those pages for other altered projects and I really like the use of my old stash.

And just to add to this ” use your stash” thing I used the very old decoupage paper on the back of this project, the very old chipboard star and even older metal letters.

This is a kind of a low cost project and it’s like ” make the background, add some themed pieces and make the statement” project.

I really hope that you got some inspiration from this project and you now understand that making art doesn’t mean that you need the buy the latest and greatest products.

All you need are great Art Anthology products and a lot of your imagination.

Here are some close- ups to this finished project:

And as always there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial I made for you HERE:

And here is a full list of Art Anthology products in our shop:

See you again next month and enjoy your crafting during those cold Winter days!
