Happy Halloween Mixed-Media Tag

 

Hey everyone and Happy Halloween!  Suzanne here today to share with you a mixed-media Halloween tag!  I had loads of fun creating this tag using several of our Art Anthology paints and mediums!

I began with a manila tag that’s been primed using black gesso and covered with birch tree die-cuts.  At the bottom of the tag, I wet and bunched up plaster paper; I sped up drying with a heat gun then painted over the top with several tones of AA paints to give a muddy or dirty appearance.

 While the tag dried, I freehand cut “headstones” and  applied a coat of Stone Effects in Sandstone (I used a heat tool to dry).  I love how it actually feels rough and gritty like actual stone!  I layered a couple of layers of Silver Metal Effects on top of the Sandstone (drying between layers).

As seen on the finished tag, the bats have been painted using AA Sorbet in “Black Leather Jacket.”  In addition, I applied a top coat of AA Sorbet “Glass” to add even more of a glitter effect!

The chipboard stars are painted with AA Gold Metal Effects, and the trees are coated with a layer of AA Sorbet in “Dazzle.”

The die-cut pumpkin is painted with AA Velvet “Tango” then heat embossed with thick embossing powder.

It’s amazing what you can create with paper and your favorite Art Anthology Paints.  This tag was super fun to create, and would be a great Halloween craft for the kiddos!

Art Anthology Supplies:
Velvet “Tango”
Stone Effects “Sandstone”
Metal Effects “Silver, Gold”
Sorbet “Glass, Dazzle, Black Leather Jacket” 

Other Supplies:
manila tag
paper die-cuts
chipboard pieces
gesso

Mixed media layout on canvas

Hi friends!

Lisa today on the blog to share with you my newest mixed media layout on canvas, playing with my favorite AA stencil and paints!

To start I brushed a coat of white gesso on the canvas and I made stencils with Stone effect Bone.

I used the stone effect also on some paper diecuts.

I made stamps with archival black ink and then I diluted the Tuxedo Velvet with water and I used a brush to color my background.

I made splatters with Gold Metal Effect and a fan brush

I sprayed Siesta Coloration on my leaves, and I brushed Gold Metal Effect on the others

So I pasted all the embellishments with my photo on the canvas, and as final touch I made big splatters with Cotton Velvet.

Here some close ups:

I used these AA products:

Lotus Stencil 6×9

Bone Stone Effects

Siesta Key Colorations Spray

Cotton Velvet

Tuxedo Velvet

Gold Metal Effects

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

Re-Purposed Can

Good morning!! A few days ago, I noticed that my succulent plant has outgrown his pot. After thinking about what to do with it, I decided to use a can that I had cleaned with the intention of re-purposing it at the right opportunity.

To begin, I covered the can with the Patina Seafoam Stone Effects from the (Patina Texture Set) using a palette knife. The palette knife works much better than a brush because the brush would soak up the medium.

I applied a good amount to the can. I like that the medium isn’t flat… it gives the can a good amount of texture. I let this dry for a few hours.

Once the Patina Seafoam Stone Effects was dry, I added the Patina Teal Velvet all around the can, leaving the Top and bottom of the can alone. I wanted the Patina Seafoam Stone Effects to show through a little.

After frying the Patina Teal Velvet using a heat gun, I used my fingers to smear on the Patina Copper Metal Effects. This stuff is amazing!!! I LOVE IT. I let it dry for a bit.

I used the Raider Colorations Spray to cover the entire can to make it look more vintage.

Once the can was completely dry, I altered two metal butterflies and a veneer heart using the same mediums and then used Super Glue to glue it to the can.

And here is the finished product! LOVE IT.

Products Used:

Patina Texture Set

Colorations Sprays: Raider

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

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!
