Bee Happy door hanger

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here with my new Mixed Media tutorial and this time we are going to make a Happy door hanger or as you can see it is ” Bee Happy” one.

As you can see I made it in bee’s yellow and just black and white and used tons of Art Anthology products.

The main images and the sentiment were stamped and heat embossed. My tip for you: if you wish to use mists over stamped images first heat emboss them! So easy and keeps the images untouched even with the heavy spraying.

So here are some close- ups for you to see and then there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial as always.

 

 

Here is our Snapguide tutorial:

Lava Stone effects

Steel colorations

I hope that you liked my project and the tutorial.

Wooden wall hanger

Wooden wall hanger with Josefine

Hi and welcome back!

Today I’m sharing a small project with you using a piece of birch wood and Art Anthology paints to create a wall hanger. Even though it’s a small piece of art, I had a lot of fun creating it!

I prepared a video tutorial for you, showing you how I created the image on the birch wood:

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial ūüôā

Do you ever paint on wood? I love how the Art Anthology paints turn out! They have a very distinct sheen to them. It’s hard to explain, but I encourage you to give it a try and see for yourself ūüôā

Here are the supplies I used:

By The Sea – Lighthouse Frame

Hello creative friends,¬†glad to be sharing¬†another DT post. For today’s project¬†I made a mixed media, somewhat¬†altered lighthouse frame. I decided not to add a photo yet (needing one that’s just right), instead I removed the glass piece¬†and replaced it with pattern paper and a¬†wooden sentiment, I saved the glass piece¬†for when I¬†add¬†the¬†photo later.

I love¬†playing with¬†lots of texture, color and embellishments.¬† I used a combination of Art Anthology Colorations color sprays –¬†Sandcastle, Warm, Waimea Bay and Peacock Feathers, Velvet Mediums –¬†Kona, Fiji and¬†Limeaid, Sorbet medium –¬†Kenyan Copper,¬†Gemstone medium –¬†Amber and Stone Effects –¬†Bone. Everything came together so nicely, it’s a great way to relax and have some¬†fun.

Hope you feel inspired to create your own… you will find a step by step tutorial with a complete list of supplies posted below.

Enjoy…

Wood Canvas with 3D Bird Nest

Hi everyone ūüôā

today I’m sharing a 3D canvas with you. I found this bird in the home decor section and just had to pair it with Art Anthology paints, sprays and inks. It is incredible that you can use the same paint as the base, for dimension and as finishing touches. It always surprises me how they turn out and that it just works.

For this canvas I decided to pick a green color base. This way the wood canvas is the tree and the green color is representing the leaves (or similar :P).

So I started with prepping the surface with different shades of green. Then I adhered the nest and added several gold shimmer effects. But see for yourself:

What do you think? Did the bird get a nice and shiny home or should she move? ūüėČ

For this project I used:

Smile : Mixed Media canvas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first July tutorial made with Art Anthology products.
 Irit is here again and this time I made a small, card sized, altered Mixed Media canvas in a dark , but yet shabby style.
The background was made with Art Anthology stencils and dimensional paints and also it was made over black gesso you can see the shiny purple paint seen over the canvas.

The flowers cluster was misted with black Colorations spray and then painted with a few other AA paints.
The die cut cardstock pieces were also painted to fit the colors of the project.
Two other pieces added here are the clay mold fairy and a chipboard title ; both were painted to get the colors desired for the finished project.

As always you can see the full Snapguide  step by step tutorial HERE:
Check out How to Make Small Mixed Media Dark Canvas by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

And here is a list of Art Anthology products used to make this small piece of art:

Sorbet  paints:

Imperial

Mermaid

Cayman

Vegas Gold 

Lotus stencil

Colorations sprays:

I hope that you liked my small canvas and my tutorial.

See you in a couple of weeks with a different project.

Rusty vintage frame by Marleen.

Hi, Marleen here with a new project.
I altered a frame. In the Netherlands we have Kings-day and the whole country is celebrating.
Everybody can sell anything you want. So the country is one big flea market the end of April. So I bought myself a 50ct frame!

My goal was to get a really old rusty effect with all the Art Anthology  mediums and inks and I love the final result!

Of course I made a Snapguide tutorial for you!

Mixed media card with Art Anthology and Gel Press

Mono Printed Mixed Media Cards with Art Anthology by Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m Josefine, the new design team member for Art Anthology. You have no idea how excited I am to join this amazing team! I’m using Art Anthology paints and stencils for a while now and my local craft store, Scrapbooking Forever in California, originally introduced me to them.

For my first project I decided to create a couple of cards using Sorbet and Velvet paints and my favorite stencils.
Mixed media card with Art Anthology and Gel Press

This project is featuring the mono printing technique. I thought it would be fun to try out the dimensional paints on my Gel Press – and I think it turned out pretty nice. Have you ever tried mono printing with Art Anthology paints?

I thought that it might be easier to follow the process with a video, so I created a quick tutorial for you:

I love mono printing, because you can create a bunch of backgrounds very fast and it’s hard to stop. I usually have to when my floor is covered in paper, lol.

Here are a few more pictures. You can click on them to enlarge them.

I hope you enjoyed my first project for Art Anthology. I’m super excited to try even more techniques with these versatile paints and share them with you!

Inspire the Arts – Altered Paintbrush

Hello creative gang,¬†happy to back¬†for another¬†DT post. For today’s project¬†I¬†created¬†a “grungy rainbow” altered paintbrush using¬†Velvet dimensional paints and the Metal Effects – copper and gold. These are¬†so thick and dimensional, you can literally hold¬†an open bottle upside down and nothing will come out, a little¬†goes a very long way. When¬†lightly applied they are somewhat¬†transparent,¬†which easily¬†allows you¬†to¬†slowly build and control the amount of¬†color needed, especially¬†when¬†using a variety of colors on a small project, like I did here.

I love learning new products as it is always a fun way for me to expand my mind and hopefully find new ways to be creative. Glad you could stop by, be sure to check out the video tutorial posted below.

I Love You Daddy by Toni

Hi everyone, it’s my turn on the blog today with a project I’m dedicating to my daddy. This is a photo of him when he was around 3 years old so probably taken about 1938.

I had purchased this canvas on clearance and it had burlap on the front of it which really added to the texture of the piece, but combined with Art Anthology paints, seed beads and texture powders I really think it gave it that masculine touch.

A little sprinkle of instant coffee on my chipboard pieces and spritzes of water gave them a grungy natural look. Hope you enjoyed my piece and wishing all the daddy’s out there a Spectacular Father’s Day this month !!!.

For your pleasure I have provided a snapguide tutorial for my step x step process.
