Make a wish art journal page with Art Anthology

Make a wish art journal page with Josefine

Hi everyone,

I’m in an art journal mood at the moment and just had to create a page with some of the Art Anthology Velvet paints. I picked all the yellows, oranges and reds that I had and started painting.

I usually don’t worry too much about techniques or guidelines when creating a project. I love “just trying” and then see what works and what not. So when I started with this page I didn’t really know where I wanted to go with it, till I realized that I’m adding quite a few stars.

The rest then just happened and I really enjoy how it turned out ūüôā

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:

Art journal with face stencil

Hello crafters !

Did you see the moodboard this month ? It’s full of interesting textures and colors !

The creamy gold and copper, the splash of blue and waves inspired me to create an art journal spread with a face stencil. It has a mermaid vibe, with a background looking like rusty metal decorations under the sea and mermaid eye deep as the sea.

I use several stencil by Art Anthology in these pages : Let’s face it for the girl, Dot matrix, Lotus and Inspired grunge for the background, plus Expressions stencil for the journaling.

Lot of mediums and inks here ! Sandcastle Colorations spray for the base, then Peacock Feathers and Siesta Key before playing with the stencils and the mediums in Amber, Mayan gold, Lagoon and Kenyan copper.

I also add somme drop of Radiance Minx and Gold Dust Minx for the rusty look.

Want to learn more about how I created these art journal pages ? Watch my complete video tutorial on AA YouTube channel :

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope the moodbard and the DT projects will help you create something ! If you are looking for more inspiration, try the AA Instagram account or AA Pinterest boards

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.

Altered dreamcatcher

Hi you !

Valerie there to present you an unusual altered project, a dreamcatcher ! The one I had was all black and needed some improvement, so I grabbed my AA mediums and a stencil and get to work…

What’s interesting in this project is that I painted different materials : fabric, metal, string, feathers, plastic and clay !

Center and metal part were painted with Poppy Sorbet Dimensional Medium, circle with Fiji Velvet., and embellishments with Sunshine Sorbet.

This close-up shows you how the Twilight stencil with Poppy Sorbet Dimensional Medium looks on feather ! This feather was painted with Sunshine Sorbet first.

Video tutorial is available on Art Anthology YouTube channel too :

Live Life Tag Board

Hi everyone, happy to be back with another DT post .¬†For this project I used some of the Art Anthology¬†dimensional paints… Metal Effects, Velvet’s and Sorbet. These paints are quite different than most paints I’ve used, they are translucent yet dimensional, so the heavier the¬†application, the more dimensional and opaque they become. The Velvet’s have a beautiful¬†matt, smooth finish, the Sorbet’s have high gloss and a tinge of glitter, I used the combination of both for the leaves.

As for the Metal Effects, I love using them over black gesso by applying the copper first and highlighting with the gold,¬†which makes the copper look more like¬†a rusty background…love this technique, will definitely be using it on another project. On this project I also used it on the face mold to give it an aged, distressed look, hard to see the end result in the video, but you can see it in the close up¬†photo.

Hope you’re feeling inspired!

Enjoy

 

 

 

Have a great day!!!
