Have you ever tried to use all the stencils from the same stack at once ? That’s what my project is all about today ! Let’s see how I used the Hexi stencil stack…
It’s not THE way of using it, just A way to do so, because you could use them separately or together, aligned or not… I decided to align them for this project, each one with a different medium. I started with the medium Hexi and Glorious Colorations spray, followed by the hollowed Hexi and Tango Velvet, and then the larger Hexi with Dazzle Clear Coat.
Once each coat was dried, I added some Waimea Bay Colorations spray and wipe the excess from the Hexi pattern. You can see that the blue did not go on the Hexi pattern thanks to the clear coat.
A bit of chevron stamp, black alpha stickers, some black on the edges and my journal pages were done !
You can follow my creative process through my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel (as many of our DT videos…) :
Thank you for your time, I hope this tutorial will help you use the stencil stacks more often !
The beautiful moodboard inspire me this month to decorate a chipboard frame with the deep and luxurious colors of this board :
I kept the petunias in mind to create my flowers and the amber look of the leather jacket. Here is the result :
The base is a blank chipboard frame that I decorated with AA mediums, Colorations spray and stencil… I created the flowers with 7 big flower punches and the Azalea Shine, Grape Shine and DragonFruit Velvet.
We are at the end of August, back-to-school is already behind us, it’s time to dive into books… Wait what ? Yes books… You know I’m talking about mixed media, right ? My project for today is an altered wooden box, in shape of a book ! And what did I do with it ? Make it look like a leather covered book !
The technique I used to create this leather look is imprint a rubber stamp into Mud Texture paste ! You just have to apply a layer of Mud paste, let it dry almost competely and then press the stamp over the paste and remove carefully…
Once dry, you can paint it as you want. Here I used Chocolate Sorbet (you can also use the Kona Velvet) and Cocoa Shine to give this old leather look.
And I used Teal Velvet and Copper Metallic from the Patina Texture set to give an antique look at my metal embellishments.
This imprint technique is a real deal ! It does look like emboss leather !
As always, I made a video tutorial for you to follow this particular technique and enjoy the transformation of a plain wood box into an leather like book…
Thank you for stopping by the blog today ! I hope you liked this new project… See you soon for another one !
I’m so glad to be back on the Art anthology blog ! It was a long summer without crafting during my vacation and it’s so good to create again ! What do I have for you today ? Another mixed media project ! This time I altered a Chinese wood fan using the Patina set, stencils, Mud Paste… Take a look !
To colorize and give dimension to the cherry blossom branch, I use the Seafom Stone Texture and the Copper Metallic from the same Patina set. To make it pop from the background, I just use a brown pen to outline the design. I also use the Copper on the edge of the fan.
After that, I just glued the embellishments covered in white gesso on the fan, and painted them with Rose Velvet or Teal matte (Patina set) before adding touches of Copper Metallic.
If you like to know more about the process of this project, you could watch the video tutorial here or on the AA channel there (where you could find other beautiful projects…).
Thank you for stopping by today ! I hope to see you very soon for another project…
Hello everyone, Marleen here with a mini-book tutorial for you.
My inspiration came from everywhere!! Do you remember my earlier post about the lace book cover I made?? Well I promised you to show the inside later on. Guess what, the cover was too small for all those pages.
So I made a bigger cover now and finished the inside pages!
I used many many Art Anthology stencils you can find them all HERE.
