Adventure awaits you, be fearless!

Hi Art Anthology fans!

Daniëlle here with a project for you. I created 2 tags this time:

Here’s how I created them:

First I sprayed with my colorations sprays. I used Siesta key, timeless and plush.

Next I used Mardi gras velvet and the ringlets stencil to create texture:

After this I used raider colorations spray and plush colorations spray with some background stamps to add more dimension to my tags:

To finish my background I also used the cracked stencil and clear coat linen. This creates a shiny, glittery extra texture:

Now, while my tags are drying, I stamp some images I like and colored them using Black leather jacket, Cayman, Mi Bella and wisteria sorbet:

I finish my project by cutting out the colored images and pasting them to my tags. I also added text stickers and ofcourse some nice ribbons.

Some close ups so you can see the colors and texture better:

I hope you enjoyed my project, see you next time!

List of products I used:

Colorations: Timeless, Plush, Siesta Key

Velvet: Mardi gras

Stencils: Ringlets, Cracked

Clear coat: Linen

Sorbet: Black leather jacket, Cayman, Mi Bella, Wisteria

Sun Kissed by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new project inspired by our pretty moodboard for summer.  I’m calling it  “Sun Kissed”.

The flowers, bright colors and ocean gave me some wonderful inspiration to alter a wooden tag that I had purchased on sale at Michaels. Lots of fussy cutting with the addition of seed beads and prills for texture to the flowers. Art Anthology has fantastic mixed media products that are so user friendly….. please don’t be afraid to dig into these mediums. Combined with Mudd paste, our stencils and a combination of different Colorations sprays the backdrop for my pretty summer piece came together. 

I hope this has inspired you a bit how to use our moodboard to get those creative juices flowing. I’m wishing you a Sunkissed Summer season.  xoxoxo

Below are Art Anthology products that have been used on this piece.

Colorful art journal page with Daniëlle

Hi Art Anthology fans!

Danielle here with an art journal page I created in my large journal.

If you want to create one yourself you can follow these steps:

  1. Add some color, using colorations sprays. Don’t cover the entire page.

2. Using limeaid velvet and the lattice stencil, add some texture.

3. Stamp some images on your page, just to make your background more interesting.

4. Using Fiesta velvet and the lotus stencil, add another layer of texture, this time in a different color.

5. While the page is drying, stamp and cut out a larger stamp on a different piece of paper. I used minx inks, mayan gold velvet and the pebbles velvet to color mine.

To finish my page I glued down the colored flower, drew a stem with leaves and stamped a text on a tag which I glued to my page as well. This is what the finished page looks like:

List of products I used:

Colorations spray: Avocado, Clover

Stencils: Lotus, Lattice, Pebbles

Velvet: LimeaidFiesta, Mayan Gold

Minx: Enchanting, Radiance

I look forward to see what you create!

Altered pencil case by Valerie

Hello !

Valerie today to show you a new mixed media project ! This time I decided to alter a canvas, but in a shape of a pencil case !

I started on a plain canvas pencil case by spraying Indigo Colorations over the Diamond Grunge stencil in 6×9. I use the Meridian stencil to draw the design on the bottom left corner, applied Fiesta Velvet on the inside of the design and then Tango Velvet for the rest.

I drawn some patterns with a white paint pen on the pink and a black paint pen over the diamonds, added dots with the Dottie stencil and Limeaid velvet before adding a sentiment.

This sentiment was made with two stencils : Expressions for “be” and Inspired Grunge for the “inspired”.

Isn’t it the result a fun pencil case ? Would you use it ? If you want to make one for yourself or to offer, watch my video tutorial to guide you to the process :

Thank you for reading this post, see you at the end of the month for another project ! You still can join some of us on the Art Anthology cruise at the end of next week ! Western Carribeans sound like fun for scrappy time, don’t you think ? It could be a Mother’s day gift (and your husband can come too…).

See ya !
