Card for a friend

Hi there, hope you all are well :)

Been busy outside lately and not so much time for creative fun.

But now and then I get some spare time and I have a lots of projects to show later on.

Here is a card, to my scrapping friend Lene, also living nearby me.
She is 40 today, and I went to see here yesterday with a gift and a card.

Most of the papers are 7Dots Studio and colors are mist by Art Anthology

Tags - DT Art Anthology

Hi there, I'm back  to show you how to make some simple tags for Art Anthology.
Hope you all are well and having a nice summer. When writing this we have just arrived home after a week in Crete.
Wonderful place and people!
You will probably see some photos from the trip on future layouts from me.

Well, back to the tags. I always keep some manilla tags beside me when creating, so easy to get cool backgrounds when I use the spilled mist from the craftsheet.
If you want to see the whole procedure , check out my blog post at Art Anthologytags















Art Anthology products used: 
Art Anthology stencil and tools
Stone effect Lava
Metal effect Copper
Colorations: Heart, Hottie, Timeless, Glorious, Studio blue

Hope you liked my post and got some inspiration for making simple tags :)

Believe in magic - art journal. The mixed media monthly challenge

Do you belive in magic? I do!!

When I saw this months challenge at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge I just had to make something with stencils and molding paste!
Guess most of you know that I love stencils and I use it with all kind of different mediums.

Molding paste is a "kind" medium, just love it!

On this page I have used Golden's Light Molding paste together with the Peacock Feather stencil by Stencil Girl/Kae Pea

The background was done with Art Anthology Gesso and Colorations spray inks in the colors Peacock feathers, Waimea Beach and Studio Blue.

After the molding paste was dry i used Archival Ink in several colors, monarch orange, orange blossom, saffron, dandelion and viridian.
And some Peacock feathers by Tim Holtz.

I also added some archival ink with Tim Holtz new blending tool on both the background and the molding paste feathers.

Really loved how the colors turned out!

Stamped a "bit" on the background with different stamps by Tim Holtz and Lost Cost Design

Finished it up with some 7Dots Studio word stickers from Illumination collection.

Wish you all a happy evening!

Be wild - be awesome! Wall-hanging

Hi again!
Back today with a small wall-hanging I've been working on this week.

It is made on a thick corrugated cardboard (yes, I find the nicest things at work, that for most people, are trash)

I gessoed the whole piece first, and glued bits of laces random places.
Topping with Gel Medium Matte.
Sprayed with Art Anthology Colorations in the colors: Hottie (pink) and Salted Caramel + Timeless (Yellowish), Raider (grey/black)
Added some brown Sandcastle as well.

Then I used the Art Anthology stencil "dots" with Stone Effect Bone.
On the Chipboard by Dusty Attic I have used Metal Effects Copper and some Archival Ink Watering Can on the edges.

Stamped the Prima Julie Nutting girls (Sunshine + For you) with Archival Ink Orange Blossom and colored them with a mix of Art Anthology Hottie and Salted Caramel.

Stamps and word stickers by 7Dots Studio.

Flowers and metal are colored with the same Art Anthology Colorations colors as used on the background.
Finished it up with some drops of Colorations.

I used Archival ink stamp pads around the edges of the cardboard.

The lace on the bottom really looked like houses, dont' you think?
I used some thick layer with  gesso with the new tools by Art Anthology on top to get that pattern.

Used the Tim Holtz stencil "Rays" toghether with Art Anthology Velvet "lemon tart". Toned it a bit down with some Gesso.

Here you see how the Art Anthology Metal Effects Copper work on the chipboard:

Hope you all are well and enjoying the weekend.

A bit quiet from me lately, but no worries, I am creating a lot, just not been on web that much during the summer.

Here is an Art Journal again, having a bit fun (well, I always have fun creating) with stencils, magazine photo and medium.
This page is made partly at home and partly on vacation on Crete.

Vacation art journal

Hi all!

Hope you all are well!

Today I have an art journal to show you.
The background made with Art Anthology Colorations spray and the drawings made when we were on our vacation in Crete.
It's supposed to be the houses I saw, sitting on our balcony.
Some stamping done after we came home.

Go with the flow - DT Art Anthology

Hi, Marianne here today.

Hope you all are doing well! Have you seen the new tools by Art Anthology?
Aren't they cool!! (and to be honest.... the greatest color LOL )

So fun to work with and really good quality!

Made me really happy when I got them.
Absolutely love the brushes and the palette tool!!
My new favourite tools!


Today I have a layout for you, monocromatic blue. I have used both Colorations spray and Sorbet paint on this project.

You can see how I made this page over at Art Anthology blog  

Do you see this "maniac"? He's a friend of us, and is attending a Championship called "VM i Døds", which would mean something like WC (world championships) in "Death".
They jump from the 10-meter in a large outdoor swimming pool in Oslo (outside - Frognerbadet) and are supposed to do it with style - not a normal jump.
So here he is, out walking..... in the air.... before landing in the water, not diving, but "splashing" IMG_5242



All the word stickers I have used were perfect for this guy and the layout and they are from 7Dots Studio







Art Anthology products used: Gesso Colorations: Waimea Bay, Raider Velvet: Aloha Sorbet: Honolulu Blue Dotted stencil Tools
