The Bone Collector-Mini Album w/Coffin by Toni

Ghostly Greetings  from Toni  and I’m here to inspire you with a “Bone Collector Mini Album and Coffin” to keep all those fun costume pics of your Halloween extravaganza. At the end of the post I have created a Snapguide tutorial on step x step process for creating the coffin, and a bit on creating the template for the mini album.  My project started off with this dollar tree find coffin and I traced it on chipboard to create my pages for the mini album to fit inside. This project had several steps but oh what fun it was to make… I actually had to tell myself “ENOUGH ALREADY”….. lol  The entire project was adhered to a wood base that was given wonderful textures with AA paints, rocks and craft sand. Wood pieces were applied to the sides of the coffin with Mudd Texture Paste and then painted to provide that old wood effect. AA’s paints are perfect because they are thick and full of body, some having textures and grits that really provided that weathered look I was going for. All those pesky hot glue threads that appear on your projects are a warm welcome to this one because it gives the illusion of webs.  The inside of coffin lid was achieved with AA’s Gothic Stencil and Mudd Paste. The tree was made from floral wire and then painted with different shades of AA paints to provide that dead look.  Several Ideaology pieces were used such as lantern, spiders, word band, glass vials, skeletons, and bones to enhance the project as well.  I used several different brands of Halloween paper, for the mini album and distressed the edges with AA paints.  The inside of the coffin was decoupaged with Halloween napkin. This is one side of the mini album. Here is the other side of the album. It’s hard to believe  there is room for 30 pictures on this ini. And here is a collage of all the pages to the mini album. Hope this post didn’t SCARE you with all the photos and steps involved, actually was quite simple and allows your creativity to go crazy.  So park your brooms at the door, sit down for a spell my pretties and enjoy the snapguide tutorial below. The following are the products used to create my piece. 

Gothic Stencil 

Velvet Paint- Kona, Taxi CabShamrock, Limeaid, Tuxedo

Sorbet – Kenyan Copper

Halloween Canvas

Ooozing eyeballs Halloween canvas with Josefine

How about a mixed media Halloween canvas with oozing eyeballs and poison paste? Art Anthology products are perfect for drippy backgrounds and thick texture alike. And it’s still enough time to create some more spooky things – despite all the Christmas decoration that is already up in my grocery store.

I’m a fan of these smaller, card sized projects and love to decorate a canvas like that. The smaller area makes it easier to get started, but also challenges you to “organize” your space better. So let me show you what I did with this little canvas.

And? Oozing enough? 😛
I’m impressed with the stone effect paste. Even though I mixed with one of the Sorbet’s it dried in a neat texture.

Thanks for stopping by!

Creating cards with Colorations Sprays from Art Anthology

Using Colorations Spray Differently with Josefine

Hi, Josefine here, with two colorful cards that I created using the Colorations Sprays in a different way. I really enjoy the Art Anthology Colorations Sprays. They are so vibrant and yummy. That’s why I was wondering, if I could use them for more than “just” spraying the ink onto something.

And I love the effect and how the cards turned out!

But back to the beginning and what I actually did. I didn’t want to create a huge mess, so I used some pipettes to get the ink out of the bottles and onto my craft mat. From there it was easy to dab my paper into the ink and create this splattered background. But see for yourself how I did it:

So, what do you think? Worth creating some more cards using this technique?

Here are the supplies I used:

Make a wish art journal page with Art Anthology

Make a wish art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m in an art journal mood at the moment and just had to create a page with some of the Art Anthology Velvet paints. I picked all the yellows, oranges and reds that I had and started painting.

I usually don’t worry too much about techniques or guidelines when creating a project. I love “just trying” and then see what works and what not. So when I started with this page I didn’t really know where I wanted to go with it, till I realized that I’m adding quite a few stars.

The rest then just happened and I really enjoy how it turned out 🙂

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…
