Imagine… your bookmarks !

Hello there, it’s Valerie !

Back to papercrafts after few off-the-page projects ! This time I created for you few bookmarks, using Colorations sprays, mediums and stencil from the Art Anthology store :

The chevron pattern came from the Chevron stencil used with Lagoon Velvet medium. I just added few stamps and washi tapes to complete the design.

I obtain the background by spraying Siesta Key and Peacock Feathers. I added the washi tapes before stenciling, and then Stamped in black ink. The Gold Metal Effects higlight some of the stamped patterns. I also sprayed some Gilded Gold Fairy Dust to add some shine to the project.

Once again I used a white gel pen to give dimension to the stamps. You can see the entire process on video (here or on the Art Anthology channel) :

Thank you for stopping by today ! Hope to see you soon…

Be in love with your life art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m back with a new art journal page using the amazing Art Anthology Velvet paints, Colorations sprays and a few stencils. If you remember from my last post, I reorganized my craft room and while doing that I found a few scrap pieces of paper. I’m supper happy that I found them, because I immediately had some ideas for art journal pages.

I found some elegant ladies as rub-ons and wanted to create a fancy art journal page for one of them. You can watch the process in my new video. This time it doesn’t have a voice over, but it should be pretty much self-explanatory:

When I was done with adding color to my page, I thought it looked like an underwater scene. So I grabbed some sea horses and se stars that I had lying around and added them to the page.

Of course the page needed a sentiment and what fit better than the big Soliloquy stencil paired with some other phrases?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I did creating it πŸ™‚

Art Journal Page with Josefine

The world is my playground art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

today I wanted to create a blue colored page. Not because I felt blue, but because the current mood board has so many pretty blue shades. I skipped the orange and replaced with some rust though.

A few days ago I reorganized my craft room and found a couple of scraps that I really wanted to incorporate somehow. So I decided to paint a blue background, add some texture and then use the scraps for this page.

I love that it is so simple to create a nicely blended background with the art Anthology paints. It always looks like I know what I’m doing πŸ˜›

If you want to see how I put everything together, here’s a video tutorial for you:


Here are a few more close ups for you.

Altered sketchbook by Valerie

Hi everyone !

Another mixed media project (I do love creating them!) with an inexpansive sketchbook as base…

I made clay embellishments and use flowers, metal embellishments and buttons as well to adhere on the sketchbook before covering everything with black gesso.

When everything was dry, I re-colored the project with Vegas Gold and Wisteria Sorbet, and Rose Velvet, then added some Gilded Gold Fairy Dust and Plush Colorations spray.

The other additions to this project were cheesecloth and microbeads, as well as wood letters for the title.

If you like to learn more about the process of this project, take a loo at my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel, where you can find other wonderful tutorials.

Thank for stopping by and for your time reviewing this project ! Have a wonderful week end filled with creativity !

De-light-ed : a scrapbooking layout by Valerie

Hello crafty people !

I have a new layout to share with you today, with a design inspired by the subject of the picture I choose… When I was in Istanbul, I stopped by a lamp merchant in the Grand Bazaar. He sold beautiful lamps made of colored glass, and I did not resist to take a picture…

I built this layout like a mosaic, mixing classic designs and modern color blocks, as Istanbul appears to me, a mix of ancient history and appetite for modernity. Take a look at the result :

On a green paper, I started to built the background with brown ink and stamps, with the chain stamp and flourish designs looking like chandeliers.

Keyhole stencil and Copper Metal Effect medium added some dimensions to the page.

The color blocks were created with ink and heavy white cardstock. The color are : Colorations spray Indigo (blue), Colorations spray Patience (pink) and Radience Minx Shimmering ink (orange).

I also spray Sandcastle Colorations over the background before adhering the blocks.

If you want to learn more about how I created this layout, watch the video here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today ! I hope you enjoy this new project as much as I enjoyed creating it for you !

See you soon for another whatever-I-wil-make !

Mermaid art journal with Art Anthology

Mermaid art journal with Josefine

Hi, Josefine is back with a new art journal page. This time I wanted to test how the Velvet paints react on a black surface. As you might know the Velvet paints are translucent so I was hoping for a fun effect and I was not disappointed.

My tutorial video shows exactly how I added the colors to the black background and what I did to create the ocean scene for the little mermaid.

I hope you enjoyed my art journal page and feel inspired to get your own paints out πŸ™‚

Halloween Card with Art Anthology

Halloween Cards with Josefine

Hi, this is Josefine. Welcome back to a new project. Halloween is right around the corner and it’s about time to grab all the spooky colors from Art Anthology and get creative.
Halloween Card with Art Anthology
I used all the purples, oranges and greens from my Colorations Sprays and paired them with the Velvet paint in the same colors. My goal was to create quite a few Halloween cards, so I kind of got into a flow once I started. It’s easy to spray ink in several shades onto water color paper and let it dry and do its magic.

Of course there is a little more to it than “just” spraying the ink onto paper, but that is definitely the most fun part πŸ˜‰
Here is my video tutorial for you that shows you all the steps for my spooky Halloween cards.

I love the vibrant colors and how amazing the backgrounds turned out! It always surprises me how different a background looks like when you let the ink dry vs heat setting it. Sometimes patience is worth it πŸ˜€

Supplies Used

Here are all the Colorations Sprays and Velvet paints that I used.

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Here are the supplies I used:

Wood Canvas with 3D Bird Nest

Hi everyone πŸ™‚

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? πŸ˜‰

For this project I used:
