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!

Hi all! Brandy here today to show you some tags I made. Pretty easy and so full of color. Tags are a great way to try out new colors and techniques. 🙂 If you have a heat tool to dry in between color changes they can be super fast to make, too!
I used the fussy cut butterflies for inspiration.
A little rustic, a lot of pretty! I love how they turned out!
I created a Snapguide tutorial if you’d like to give these a try!
Here are the Art Anthology goodies used in this project!
Merry Christmas everyone, it will be the big day before you know it so you better get started with your gift wrapping. This year I decided to decorate my tree with hues of teal and aqua and accented with chocolate & gold therefore; I wanted the packages to run with that theme also. I do notice that some of my photos came out looking a deep blue, they are really a pretty shade of aqua.
I always love to put a little bit of me when preparing a present to give someone. I decided to make my tags this year, little pieces of art to give all my loved ones. Art Anthology has some gorgeous colors to work with on my tags, from the Sorbet paints to the Coloration Sprays, you can’t go wrong.
I kept the tags pretty simple with embellishments, but the Mud Texture Paste used with AA’s pretty stencils give the foundation of the tags some yummy texture to work with.
The chipboard pieces were embossed with gold, patina and chocolate powders and Stickles were added here and there for a bit more sparkle.
I did use Snow-Tex also on some of the tags for a pretty snowy effect. These tags are so much fun to make, really costs pennys because you can use up little scraps of Christmas papers you have from years before for layering. Hope this has inspired you to give a little of yourself this Christmas by customizing some fun tags to put on those packages for your special loved ones. Wishes you a Christmas filled with Sparkle and Magic. xoxo Toni

Hi everyone… it’s time to get messy with our Art Anthology products. Today I created some mixed media tags. I just love creating tags, they’re like little pieces of art. I can try out new techniques and just go wild with the products.
These tags are #8 size manila T!m Holtz tags so they give you plenty of room to add yummy textures and colors. The background was created collaging old dress patterns, and then I decided to color my AA Mud Texture Paste so I busted out my Velvet paint in Tuxedo and on one tag I used AA’s bee hive stencil and on the other tag I used dottie stencil.
Once dried I did some gessoing, stamping, sewing and added some lace trim. Mixed media is all about layers and layers of different mediums and these tags have that.
Wishing you a wonderful day and I invite you to sit back and check out my Snapguide tutorial below to see how I achieved these vintage style tags.
Creatively yours, Toni
Hello Art Anthology friends! Debbie with you today sharing a mixed media tag set I created with Art Anthology Colorations, Minx, Sorbet and Stone Effects. I gave these tags lots of color, dimension and texture! all of these techniques are so easily accomplished with Art Anthology products! If you love layering color Art Anthology products are for you. They dry fast and you can move the color around for beautiful blending!
I love adding splatters to most of my projects and Art Anthology Colorations and Minx makes this technique easy!
Add a few flowers and embellishments and your projects will pop with color!

Thanks for stopping by the Art Anthology Blog today and be sure to stop by the Art Anthology Store for all your mixed media products!
Hi crafty friends! Kathy here to share a great product that works perfectly with Art Anthology Velvets, Sorbets and Minx Shimmering Inks. I have always liked foam stamps because they work so well with paint, but the designs left a lot to be desired. Enter: ArtFoamies: Durable, bold foam stamps that come in dozens of designs, including exclusive designs by artist, Julie Fei Fan Balzer.
Each foam stamp comes with a Stamp Buddy, a reusable and customizable stamp pad that fits the size of the stamp.
Check out my snap guide to see how to make these fun tags!
