By The Sea – Lighthouse Frame

Hello creative friends, glad to be sharing another DT post. For today’s project I made a mixed media, somewhat altered lighthouse frame. I decided not to add a photo yet (needing one that’s just right), instead I removed the glass piece and replaced it with pattern paper and a wooden sentiment, I saved the glass piece for when I add the photo later.

I love playing with lots of texture, color and embellishments.  I used a combination of Art Anthology Colorations color sprays – Sandcastle, Warm, Waimea Bay and Peacock Feathers, Velvet Mediums – Kona, Fiji and Limeaid, Sorbet medium – Kenyan Copper, Gemstone medium – Amber and Stone Effects – Bone. Everything came together so nicely, it’s a great way to relax and have some fun.

Hope you feel inspired to create your own… you will find a step by step tutorial with a complete list of supplies posted below.

Enjoy…

Rusty vintage frame by Marleen.

Hi, Marleen here with a new project.
I altered a frame. In the Netherlands we have Kings-day and the whole country is celebrating.
Everybody can sell anything you want. So the country is one big flea market the end of April. So I bought myself a 50ct frame!

My goal was to get a really old rusty effect with all the Art Anthology  mediums and inks and I love the final result!

Of course I made a Snapguide tutorial for you!

Newborn wall hanger…

Ellie Knol here today…
and I created a wall hanger for you…

Making this project took me over a week… trial and error… starting, not being satisfied, and changing details all the time.. it was a bit frustrating, but I am happy with it now.

I started with a tiny blue t-shirt, with text on it that I wanted covered. I was happy with the outcome of the shirt straight away.. just added some white highlights later on.

But the base… grrrr… If you look at the step-by-step in the Snapguide tutorial, you’ll see what I mean.

I like this detail in the background!

The finished project…

 

…hope this little newborn boy will see it later on in his life and be happy with it! His mommy will, anyway!

I’ve created a Snapguide tutorial for you:

Check out How to Create a Wall Hanger for a Newborn Baby by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

SEE you!

Nautical shadow box

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first May Art Anthology project.

I am a big fan of cheap $ store products that can be altered and embellished.

So with Art Anthology great paints, colorations and stencils I made this Nautical shadow box and as you can see it looks fabulous!

 

I decided not to cover the inside of the shadow part with paint and the white space makes the inside stencilled piece to shine.

Here are some close – ups to this piece:

Fairy door scene tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends !

 Irit is here and I welcome to my second December post for Art Anthology.

irit_sig

This time I made a totally different project: altered Fairy door  chipboard set from Tando Creative.

img_7341

I used chipboards and Art Anthology products only with the small add- on of Makin’s Clay molded fairies added to the finished project.

As always I made a small tutorial for you. I even made my own paint tool from the old (or new) tooth brush.

img_7340

Each chipboard piece was painted in the different way to get a different effect. There are stone effect, wood effect, painted  leaves and a mushroom, ” metal” hinges and pastel fairies. And each effect was made just with Art Anthology paints and sprays.

Here is a piece of the project with ” metal” hinges, painted fairy, 3d mushroom and some leaves. You can also see the wooden door and it really looks like an old, peeled wood.

Here is another look at the fairy, leaves, wood and stone effect that was made with paints only.

It was so much fun to make this project and to see the final result!

Thanks for visiting own blog and I really hope that you like my  Fairy project.

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here with my newest inspiration. I want to show You today a mixed media canvas with sand, waves and blue sky. It’s this kind of project that You create just for fun. Full of experiments, playing with colors and mediums.

I also prepared a process video for You.

I used 8*8 canvas as a base. I was inspired by the beautiful blue Velvet and Sorbets. Last time I showed You layout created with them. This time I thought that they will look awesome as a shades of sea surface.

DSC_6826a

I created two different parts on one canvas – heavy, full of textures sea and soft, watercolor sky. I love how many possibilities You have with many kind od mediums such as mists or dimensional paints.
