Journey Mixed Media Layout

Happy Friday! I have another mixed media layout to share with you. I really got my hands dirty on this one… I had a few mishaps along the way, but nothing I couldn’t fix… The colors are sooooo vibrant!

To begin, I coated white cardstock with the Dazzle Sorbet Paint. Then I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time. Once the paint was dry, I used the Bits of Grunge stencil and the Sandstone Stone Effects Dimensional Medium to create sand puddles for my background. When this stuff is dry, it totally looks like sand! 🙂 SO NEAT!

Initially, I was going to create some numbers in the background with the Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint and a few stars using the Red Velvet, but the paint smeared… so I decided to mess it up…make it a bit grunge to cover my mistakes. It worked…


Here is a closer look at the sand puddles. Soooo neat. You have to see it in person to fully appreciate this medium.

I painted a piece of white cardstock using the Red Velvet Sorbet Paint to create a fun mat for the strip of photos.

Then I looked through my stash for a few embellishments to add to add dimension.

Products Used:

Colorations Sprays: Raider, Sandcastle

Stone Effects Dimensional Medium: Sandstone

Sorbet Dimensional Medium Paint: Mermaid, Red Velvet, Dazzle

Velvet Dimensional Paint: Tuxedo

Stencil: Bits of Grunge 6×9

“Fall” Layout featuring Velvet Paint Background

Hey everyone!  Suzanne here today to share a Fall inspired layout that boasts an array of Art Anthology Paints!  I’m hoping we have at least a small simulation of Fall this year here in the Deep South, but until then, one can dream and scrapbook about it!

The Velvet Paints are so yummy.  They have a thick consistency that dries with a super gorgeous and shimmery matte finish!  I randomly applied the paint with a palette knife and allowed it to air-dry.

While the background dried, I paint paper die-cut leaves with several colors of AA paints; I applied several colors at a time while they were wet or close to drying.  This allowed for a little color variation with each leaf.  Once these are completely dry, all that’s left to do is assemble the layout!  Here are some close-ups.

Whether it’s Shine, Velvets, or Sorbet, Art Anthology Paints work beautifully together to make your project come to life!

Art Anthology Supplies:
Velvets: “Mustard, Fiji, Tango”
Shine: “Azalea Pink, Kelly Green”
Sorbet: “Kenyan Copper, Vegas Gold”

Other Supplies:
cardstock, patterened paper
paper die-cuts and embellishments

From The Heart a Mixed Media Tag by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa today on the blog and I’d love to share with you this mixed media tag playing with a lot of Art Anthology products!

To start I glued some pieces of tissue paper and old book pages on my tag with gel medium.

Then I brushed white gesso

I chose AA Stencil ” Messy Bubbles” and I made some stencils with modelling white paste.

Then I made some stamps with Archival black ink and I colored the background with Patience and Plush Colorations Sprays, using a round brush and water to give a watercolor effect.

After that I took Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint and I made some splatters of colour with a fan brush.

I stamped some butterflies on a piece of watercolor paper and I colored them with Siesta Colorations Spray. Then I cutted them and I used as embellishments on my tag

I made some splatters again this time with Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint to give more contrast on the background

I finished my tag adding some diecuts, stickers and sequins. On the black heart I brushed a little of Dazzle Sorbet Paint…..I love its glitter effect!

Now some close ups photos

I used these AA products:

Patience Colorations Spray

Plush Colorations Spray

Siesta Key Colorations Spray

Messy Bubbles Stencil

Cotton Velvet 

Fiji Velvet

Dazzle Clear Coat

That’s all for today!
