For my tag I did use a chipboard tag and adhered “Flight” patterned paper. I applied some crackle medium to the background and then used Art Anthology’s Colorations Spray – Patience over the top. I then stamped a script stamp randomly over the sprayed area with black archival ink.

I the heart and word “Dreamer” are from the collections quotes and elements sheet. I applied some glossy accents to the word Dreamer. I used resin wings, key and stars and painted them with Art Alchemy Sparks paint and then highlighted with a wax.

I stamped the butterflies and coloured them using Distress Oxide Ink. To finish the tag I added an assortment of flowers, micro beads, art stones and sisal. I just love how this tag turned out.

Thanks for dropping by and I can’t wait to show you my next project real soon.

One of a Kind Tag – Art Anthology

Hi there my crafty followers, today I am up on the Art Anthology Blog with this Mixed Media tag. There is a process video located at the end of the blog so please feel free to click on it to watch me in action xx.

I started my tag by using Stone Effects – Bone with Art Nuveau stencil. After drying with my heat tool, I then added white gesso and also applied some crackled paste.

Once dry and all my elements on the tag have been adhered and covered with white gesso, I then applied Colorations Color Spray – Siesta Key. Next I used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panache on the background and used a little bit of water to help the ink spread around the tag.

 

After the ink has dried, I then spray Colorations Color Spray Peacock Feathers to create some depth to the tag. To break up some of the blue on the tag, I then used Rust Texture Set on some of the elements on the tag.

 

After adhering my chipboard butterfly, I then added Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent. Then to finish off the tag, I added the gold paste from Rust Texture Set to highlight.

 

 AA products products used:

Stencil – Art Nuveau 

Colorations  – Siesta Key, Peacock Feathers

Spooky Halloween Shadow Box

Hi there my lovelies!!! Today I am up on the Art Anthology blog with my first Halloween Project.

  1. I painted all my chipboard pieces and shadowbox with black gesso. I then applied Sandstone Stone Effects using a palette knife to the box and Gargoyles.

2.  I then used Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint to add highlights to the chipboard pieces.

3. Next I dry brushed onto the shadowbox using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint.

4.  I painted my potion bottles using Sorbet Dimensional Paint in Black Leather Jacket…. I LOVE this colour.

5. The bottles needed some more texture as they got lost in the box so I added some Sandstone Stone Effects but I made sure I didn’t cover the pieces.

6. Next I painted some of the bottles with Kenyan Copper Sorbet Dimensional Paint

7. Finally before adhering everything together, I used Peacock Feathers Colorations Spray to colour the other potion bottles and used the left over spray on my desk to dry brush on the shadow box.

Steampunk ATC’s

Hi there my lovelies!!! Today I am up on the Art Anthology blog and I am sharing with you my steampunk Artist Trading cards using there Colorations Color Sprays.

Steampunk ATC's

For those who aren’t aware Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) are trading cards you create with a theme and swap them with others every month. I find these cards are a great way to get the creative juices flowing so here is how I created mine.

  1. I cut my card stock at 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches and used Darkroom Door’s Measuring Tape stamp with black archival ink. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink pad for the background and sealed it using a fixative spray.

2. Next I sprayed Colorations Color Spray in Sandcastle all over the cards and used my heat gun to dry.

3. Then I sprayed Colorations Spray Siesta Key and again dried with a heat gun. Once the cards were dry, I then sprayed with Colorations Spray Indigo.

4. Then I sprayed my craft mat with water to reactive the left over sprays from my cards and smooshed the cards over the sprays….no wasting lol.

5. I then added some washi tape to the cards and stamped my steampunk stamps onto cardstock and cut them out and adhered everything including the sentiments to the cards.

And just like that you have a set of ATC’s to swap.

This is the list of products that I used:

Colorations: Sandcastle, Siesta Key, Indigo

Stamps: Darkroom Door Measuring Tape Background Stamp and Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Noble Gent 

Tim Holtz stickers and Distress Oxide Ink Spiced Marmalade

Thanks for dropping and can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon xx

Altered Notebook

Hi there my lovelies!!!! I back again to share another DT project Art Anthology and today I am sharing my altered notebook. If you would like to watch me create this please click on the video at the end of the blog xx

  1. To start I covered my notebook with tissue paper and then covered with black gesso. I also applied a coat of black gesso to my chipboard pieces and resin.

 

2. Once everything was adhered, I then used the dry brushing technique using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint all over.

3. After drying I then sprays Patience Colorations Spray all over. Then dry brushed Boysenberry Velvet Dimensional Paint to the chipboard and resin pieces.

  

4. Then after a quick dry, I applied Teal Shine Dimensional Paint. Once I was happy with the blend of colours, I then used a gold mousse to highlight all over the notebook.

5. I added some glass glitter and then applied Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint. I found that the notebook needed a little more “pop” and once I added this, I was happy.

This is the list of products that I used:

Velvet: Fiji, Cotton, Boysenberry

Colorations: Patience

Shine: Teal

Thanks for dropping and can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon xx

 

Create Art – Art Anthology

Hey there everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. Well today I am sharing my very first design team member creation for Art Anthology. I have a process video at the end of the blog so feel free to check it out xx

  1. To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.

2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.

3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.

4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.

Here is some more pictures of the finished page
