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.

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 😉
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 😀

Supplies Used

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

Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Play with pattern by Anna Komenda

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here. Today I want to show You layout with handmade pattern paper. I was inspired by one of the Bellaboulevard papers from “She blooms” collection and I thought: why not to make a similar paper by my own?

It was simple, black and white graphic design with polka dots. I just took white 12*12 cardstock, brush and black Velvet paint “Tuxedo” and painted dots. I waneted them to look like hand painted so didn’t measure anything. It was fast and easy job.

I also painted flowers cutted with Cameo. Pink color looks very nice on this graphic black and white background.

As always, I have a process video for You. I hope You will be isnpired to create Your own patterned papers. You can paint stripes, dots, triangles.

Thank You for stopping by and see You in two weeks.

Love rules here by Anna Komenda

Hello Art Anthology fans. It’s Anna here today. I would like to show You a pendant created for my daughter’s room. She is only seven right now but she starts to have her own opinions about everything. She also usually disagree with the sentence that I rule the house 😀 Because I do, right?

That’s why I created this pendant with inscription “Love rules here”. Because it’s the most important thing to remember everyday – that all I do, even if she don’t like it, I do because I love her very much. And I really hope that everytime when she will feel angry of me, she will look at this sign and cheer up a little.

I used a variety of AA products on this pendant – paints and mists. I also added few Melissa Frances wooden elements.

I really like the combination of turquise and purple and I highlighted it by adding butterflies in this colors.

Layout “Sky is the limit” by Anna Komenda

Hello AA fans. It’s Anna here with some summer inspiration. I played with Colorations Sprays and I created a layout. I was inspired by picture I took during our visit at my parent’s house. They live in the countryside and the sky often looks fabulous there. So crisp and blue till the green horizon.

DSC_9130 DSC_9139

As I mentioned, I played with Colorations Sprays. I sprayed the background with three shades of blue using circle as a stencil.

I left the white circle in the middle of the blue circles but I also wanted to add white clouds. I didn/t have a proper stencil so I created one by myself. I used texture paste to create the clouds.

DSC_9117

I added a pinch of yellow and I created three colors palette: white, blue and yellow as a sun.

DSC_9125

The title just jumped into my head. I feel free and wild when I look at the sky and distant horizon. It gives my such a great power to deal with the daily routine.

I also created a process video for You.

Thank You for stopping by and see You in two weeks 🙂

Canvas “Sea”

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here with my newest inspiration. I want to show You today a mixed media canvas with sand, waves and blue sky. It’s this kind of project that You create just for fun. Full of experiments, playing with colors and mediums.

I also prepared a process video for You.

DSC_6812a

I used 8*8 canvas as a base. I was inspired by the beautiful blue Velvet and Sorbets. Last time I showed You layout created with them. This time I thought that they will look awesome as a shades of sea surface.

DSC_6826a

I created two different parts on one canvas – heavy, full of textures sea and soft, watercolor sky. I love how many possibilities You have with many kind od mediums such as mists or dimensional paints.

I was finally able to use my Prima reisins that I bought ages ago. I painted them with a brush. Thanks to that the blended perfectly in my canvas.

Spring frame

Hello Art Anthology fans. It’s Anna here with my first project created with AA goodies.

It’s almost spring outside my window and I am so tired of grey, short, winter days. I need sun, colors and warmth. I can’t wait to see trees in bloom and smell the scent of lilacs and cherries.

I am in the mood for fresh colors and flowers so I created this home decor for my kitchen. It’s a floral frame created with some old canvas, branch brought from one of our walks and some paper flowers. And, of course, Art Anthology mediums.

DSC_6652b

I decided to use fresh colors that associate with spring: pink, yellow and light green.

DSC_6654b

I used some old canvas from my previous, unsuccessful project. Tha canvas was destroyes but I still was able to use the wooden frame. First, I coverd the wood with a gesso to protect it and create a base for the mediums, then I played with colors and painted the frame.

I recorded a video so You can check my creative process and here are some yummy details:

Mixed Media Skyline Canvas

I was so thrilled to do a LIVE UStream Show a few weeks ago! We had so much fun chatting, making art and making new friends. What a perfect way to spend a Friday night.

In case you missed the show, you can check out the recording.

CLICK HERE for Part One of the Show
CLICK HERE for Part Two

I promised during the show that I would finish the canvas.
I had a blast adding more layers of paint, color and sprays.
I used brushes and got crazy by sticking my fingers into the paints and smearing them on the canvas.
Won’t you try some Art Anthology?! Now…GO MAKE SOME ART!
