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

Cotton Velvet 

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

Speak your truth – art journaling with Daniëlle

Hi guys!

How’s everyone doing? Summer break is over here in my region and I’m going back to work this week. So I’m carefully planning my creative me-time, because I need it!

I made you an art journal page this time.

If you want to create this too, you can follow my steps:

  1. Add velvet to your page with a paintbrush.

2. Using a babywipe and a stencil, wipe off some velvet to create an interesting background effect.

3. Add some background stamps

4. Add some extra colorand texture by applying the same velvet through the same stencil, only this time using a pallette knife.

5. Add some stone effects elements to your page.

6. While your background is drying, stamp and color an image. I use my colorations sprays as a watercolor for this step.

7. Take out your patina set and create a textured embellishment for your page.

8. Now put everything together and finish your page with a text stamp.

Here are some close ups for you:

 

This is the list of products that I used:

Velvet: Fiji

Stencils: Luna, Bits of grunge

Colorations: Sedona, Sandcastle, Siesta key

Stone effects: Sandstone

Texture set: Patina

That’s it for today, hope to see you again soon!

Nemo the Cat on Vinyl

Hi Art Anthology fans, I am back with my second project as an Art Anthology Dream-team member. This time I made a layout on an old record and used a picture of our cat Nemo.

Made this as a present for my daughter who misses the cat since she moved out to go study in Belgium.

Because the record has an interesting structure a bit of stenciling was enough for a background, I choose the stone effect dimensional medium Sandstone, because the color looked nice with the colors of the cat.

Don’t you just love the effect in combination with the Gothic stencil?

The colors of the Sorbet dimensional paint and the Colorations spray are also based on the colors I have in my picture. I really love the coloring part of mixed media altered. Sometimes you have a carnival of colors, then after gesso it is a bit boring. Adding the colors is bringing a composition to live I think.

I made you a video of the process:

List of supplies:

Stencil: Gothic

Colorations sprays: Indigo, Peacock Feather, Juicy.

Sorbet Dimensional Paint: Mermaid, Walnut, Kenyan Copper and Vegas Gold.

Stone effect : Sandstone

 

I really hope I could inspire you to create with Art Anthology products. We would love to see what you make with them in our Facebook group Art Anthology Adventures in Art.

Thank you for taking an interest and hope to see you next time.

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!

Mixed Media Embroidery Hoop by Toni

Hi everyone, today I have a fun altered project that you can create using fabric and Art Anthology’s products.  I started with my embroidery hoop with muslin material.  I added some texture paste through one of our stencils and then began adding my pretty colors of Sorbets, Velvets & Coloration Sprays. For some of my embellishments I used hot glue and used them in sea shell molds. Then I primed them with gesso and continued using the beautiful AA products on them. Fun summery project, I hope you enjoyed and for your pleasure I have a video tutorial below.

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I last created an art journal page for you guys so that’s what I have for you today!

For this page I created my own shimmering ink spray! I just put some Sandcastle colorations with Gold dust minx ink and Decadent minx ink in an old spray bottle and added some water. I kept adding the colors until I was happy with the result:
