Collect Beautiful Moments by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new project. It’s springtime here in the U.S. one of my favorite times of the year, so I decided to create a butterfly canvas.  It was time to bust out the Sculpture Medium. I’ve been wanting to play with this for some time. Once my cheesecloth was completely dry it was stiff as a board and took to Art Anthology’s mediums and spray beautifully.

I think this will be a pretty addition to my altered canvases in my studio. I also utilized my new Paper Clay Moulds and created some of my own embellishments to enhance my canvas. 

Wishing you a beautiful springtime and hoping you “Collect Beautiful Moments” along the way.

For your enjoyment I have including a Snapguide tutorial below for my step x step process.

Time flies when you are clowning around

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here with my first March inspiration.

This time I made a square 6*6” chipboard altered board using lots of Art Anthology stencils, paints  and sprays.

This chipboard was first covered with gesso. Then I added texture paste with our fantastic Art Anthology …… stencil.

Here are some close ups for you to see:

 

 

 

The whole composition was born when I decided to add a stamped clown image over the board and to use the stamped ” Clowning around” sentiment.

This was my first time to mix Sorbet paint with 3d art stones and it worked in the best possible artistic way over the board.

As always I made a full Snapguide tutorial that you can see HERE:

Hope you liked my art piece. See you again in  two weeks with another Art Anthology inspiration.

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:

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 :

Find your Star Clear acrylic deco

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second January tutorial made for Art Anthology.

Irit is here with my new artistic inspiration made  for you.

irit_sig

This time I made a clear acrylic wall deco project using the old and forgotten acrylic page from the 7 years non used album.

I call it a kind of recycling as I never made the clear album, but I use those pages for other altered projects and I really like the use of my old stash.

And just to add to this ” use your stash” thing I used the very old decoupage paper on the back of this project, the very old chipboard star and even older metal letters.

This is a kind of a low cost project and it’s like ” make the background, add some themed pieces and make the statement” project.

I really hope that you got some inspiration from this project and you now understand that making art doesn’t mean that you need the buy the latest and greatest products.

All you need are great Art Anthology products and a lot of your imagination.

Here are some close- ups to this finished project:

And as always there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial I made for you HERE:

See you again next month and enjoy your crafting during those cold Winter days!

Fairy door scene tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends !

 Irit is here and I welcome to my second December post for Art Anthology.

irit_sig

This time I made a totally different project: altered Fairy door  chipboard set from Tando Creative.

img_7341

I used chipboards and Art Anthology products only with the small add- on of Makin’s Clay molded fairies added to the finished project.

As always I made a small tutorial for you. I even made my own paint tool from the old (or new) tooth brush.

img_7340

Each chipboard piece was painted in the different way to get a different effect. There are stone effect, wood effect, painted  leaves and a mushroom, ” metal” hinges and pastel fairies. And each effect was made just with Art Anthology paints and sprays.

Here is a piece of the project with ” metal” hinges, painted fairy, 3d mushroom and some leaves. You can also see the wooden door and it really looks like an old, peeled wood.

img_7339

Here is another look at the fairy, leaves, wood and stone effect that was made with paints only.
