ART – With Art Anthology and Altered Pages

Art Anthology and Altered Pages teamed up during October to offer some fantastic projects using their products.  Below is a mini canvas series I did for the blog swap.

Step 1 Web

To get started, I covered three mini canvases with Art Anthology Gesso.

Step 2 Web

Next, I lightly misted a coat of Sandcastle Colorations.

Step 3 Web

I then gave two canvases a couple of coats of Lemon Tart and one canvas a couple of coats of Limeade Velvet.  It gave me a nice, grungy look which is what I was going for.

Step 4 Web

I stamped the A, R, and T stamps from Altered Pages Alphapalooza stamp set, then mixed up a little modeling paste with Desire Velvet and stenciled on some dots using the Dot Matrix Stencil.

Step 5 Web

I wanted to embellish the canvases a little, go I gesso'd some Hexagon and Triangle Embedibles then gave them a coat of Evergreen Sorbet.

Step 6 Web

Using a small paintbrush, I painted the "A" with Kona Velvet, the "R" with Desire Velvet, and the "T" with Shamrock Velvet.  I then added the hexagons and triangles to my canvases.

Step 7 Web

In order for the canvases to hang from each other, I snipped off pieces of an old necklace chain and attached them to my canvases using a mini stapler.  I then added a hanger to the back of the "A" canvas and hung it on my wall over my work table.

Hope you enjoyed this little mini tutorial. 
Until later……………….
