Boho Beauty

Hi everyone... it's my turn again on Art Anthology's blog for a new layout I did of my daughter. She recently went to Coachella Music Festival and I snapped this pic of her all dressed up in her boho look.
Using my Art Anthology paints for stamping was easy and really got the results I was looking for. Means, this was a boho style I thought I had to do a little lacing to bring back that whole macrame vibe. 
As far as I'm concerned you never have too much sparkle on layouts, so seed beads were added as well as AA's Colorations Sprays and Metal Effects. 
I hope you have enjoyed the photos and please take time to sit back and visit my Snapguide tutorial showing you my creative process for this layout. Also below is a list of AA products used for this project.  Happy Creating xoxo Toni

Altered Box... Mixed Media Style

Hi everyone... Hope you are enjoying your summer. It's my turn on Art Anthology's blog today to present you with an altered project that I created utilizing the gorgeous products from AA. This kleenex box I purchased at Michaels for $3.99 with my 40% coupon.

 This is the before
This is after

I first covered the box with gesso and then applied a beautiful stencil using my AA Mud Texture Paste. Then applied all my fun embellies and started spraying and painting for highlights and sparkle. 
Please enjoy my Snapguide tutorial below for a list of supplies used and step x step process. For more information, inspiration and photos, drop by Art Anthology's blog. Thanks for stopping by and have a spectacular day creating. 

xoxo Toni
