Recycled ” Dream” wall decoration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second April Art Anthology post.

 

This time I decided to show you how you can use your old and messy paint brushes and to make a lovely wall decoration using them with Art Anthology paints and a stencil.

As you can see the project base is made of 21 old paint brushes. My problem is that I never clean my brushes in a proper way. I do clean them here and there, but finally they are done and gone and the only thing you can make with them is an altered project.

Lucky me, I never buy the expensive brushes and those are all kind of a general $ store ones.

So then life gives you messy ” lemons” make a nice lemonade and in my case make a nice altered project.

Here you can see some close- ups to this project:

 

 

 

You can see the full step by step tutorial here on a Snapguide:

Velvet- Lagoon, Mardi Gras

Gemstones- Rhodolite

Stencil

Hope you like my project and see you soon again with a totally different Mixed Media creation.

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 3 !

Hi you, Art Anthology fans… Ellie Knol here today! 

It’s good to be back after being to South Africa for a month…it wasn’t a holiday actually, but to bury my dear mom who passed away last month. I had nearly 2 weeks to sit with her and say goodbye. We were actually going to celebrate her 90 th birthday on the 19th, but she passed away 2 weeks before that. She had a fulfilled life… that’s for sure. 

****

AS PROMISED… I am not finished playing with the MINX inks yet! 

Today I chose to play with MINX inks in combination with a custom made ink pad. That’s really so much fun.. you MUST give it a try!

Please have a look at the Snapguide at the end of this post for step-by-steps of the 2 techniques in this post.

Technique ONE is using the inks on the pad for stamping.

Changing the above card with just a touch of 2 stencils.

******

Technique TWO is finishing up all that beautiful ink on your pad.

Using these backgrounds for one-of-a-kind cards.

Scrapbooking layout built with inks

Hello !

Valerie here to show you how to build a stunning background only with inks and papers !

Few stripes of paper and two inks are enough to create dimensions on the background. I used the Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Warm with a paint brush and water (see the link to products at the end of this post).

I layered pieces of papers from the same stack and added three die cut sprayed with Waimea Bay to drawn the eye to the picture. Drops of gesso are the final touches to this layout.

You will find the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by the blog today and for reading this post. See you in two weeks for another project !

Altered chipboard heart

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Valentine February Art Anthology post.

This is Irit here from Irit Shalom’s Designs blog  and I just want to say ” Happy Valentine Day” to you all!

 

irit_sig

This time I made an altered chipboard heart project and this is a kind of ” use whatever you have” one.

Most of us (be honest, you too) have this junk box with all possible left over embellishments that are not a part of a set or collection.
They are all in all possible colors and textures and shapes and we never actually use them.
So this project is the one that makes you to open this junk box and to grab all things you would never use the other way and to make one single altered project that looks fabulous and costs nothing (yes, the gorgeous Art Anthology paints and mists have a cost, but it’s not like you use the whole bottle for this project? ).
So as you can see other than Art Anthology products I added here buttons, pieces of chipboards, metal trinkets, lace, die cuts and … You name it- it’s here.

So here are a few close ups to this  shiny red heart :

And as always here is the Snapguide tutorial:

How to Use a Face Stencil

Happy day to you and I’m happy to share with you again !

Do you have to have drawing skills to add a face to a page? NO, not if you have these beautiful Face-It stack of stencils from Art Anthology!

I’ve created a page to show that. I do need some practice with these faces though!

There is a tutorial at the end of this post, on Snapguide.

Stamped script to connect the face and the rest of the page.


Mayan Velvet Dimensional paint adds interest to the hearts of the flowers.


Some detail of the collage.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’d love to hear what you think of this page. I know I still have to practice!!

Steampunk heart canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with a new mixed media project using AA paints, inks and stencil ! I called it “La fabrique a bonheur” (hapiness manufacture).

 

Layering the different mediums was the key to obtain this rusty look. I used two Velvet in Tango and Portobello, and three Colorations sprays, in Juicy, French Toast and Siesta Key.

Texture is created with special powder and heat, dimension by layering cardboard gears and grunge board strips.

You can watch the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel, as well as other tutorials…

Thank you for reading this post today. See you next month for another tutorial…

Here is the list of AA products to create this canvas :
