Steampunk Wooden Case To Hold Embellishments

I love having fun containers to house my art goodies and I really needed a new case for my steampunk trinkets. I found this box on clearance for $5.00 and thought it would be perfect for all my goodies. 
The top is glass so on the underside I added alcohol inks and then random steampunk stamps were applied. The "Mister" image is actually underneath the glass, so I used alcohol blending solution to move the inks around so the image would show through. 
The inside I left completely alone and filled with wonderfulness for my next projects !
The Steampunk title was burnt into the wood using Walnut Hollow wood burning kit. 

Frame was painted black and then enhance with Art Alchemy Waxes.  I have a video for your viewing pleasure. Hope you take a moment to view. I am new with YOUTUBE so would love for you to subscribe to my channel if you have enjoyed this video. Thank you for stopping by.

Create Your Own Paradise-Journal Page

Hi everyone, I am here with a journal page today inspired by Art Anthology's pretty mood bard this month. 
Using a combination of Mud Paste run through a stencil and also Sizzix 3D embossing folder to add texture to cardstock that I collaged on the page, provided the foundation for my journal page.
I used several Art Anthology products including, Velvets, Sorbets and Colorations. 

 With the use of charcoal pencil and Distress Crayons, it provided that grungy look I love.
I hope you enjoyed and for your pleasure have included a YOUTUBE video of my creative process. I am very new at YouTube and would love for you to drop by my website and Subscribe HERE Thank you for stopping by. xoxo Toni

Mixed Media ATC With Galaxy Background

Hi everyone, Toni here with a fun new technique to use your Art Anthology Coloration sprays with. I am involved in Renea Bouquet Fabulous Fairy ATC Swap and decided to make an interactive ATC for my swap partner. 
The background on the ATC's was super fun and easy using sprays this time, I have in the past always used distress inks but AA sprays worked beautifully for this effect. 

The stars on the background were achieved by embossing with Stardust EP which gave them a twinkling effect. 
These tiny little Beautiful Board chipboard pieces were perfect for my ATC's. You can purchase them HERE at Renea Bouquet store. 
The products I used by Art Anthology can be purchased HERE at there store. Hope you were inspired by a new technique and for your pleasure I have included a YouTube below. Have a wonderful day and get creative !

"Live In The Moment" Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone... hope you all are having a nice August month and trying to stay cool. Here in California it's been unbearable in triple digits. When I saw this months Art Anthology mood board I fell in love because it brought a coolness to me and was super excited to create with it. 

For my Art Anthology design team project I purchased an inexpensive frame from the dollar store and wanted to alter it. I began by adding texture using Mud Texture Paste and art stones mixed together. Then the colors I used to play with were AA's Colorations in Siesta Key and Patience. 

Painted and embossed using Seth Aptner's Baked Enamels on my chipboard pieces and some pretty flowers enhanced with seed beads and mini sequins add that bit of glam that I love. 

T!m's paper dolls and quote chips always lend for some fun and interest and they completed my frame perfectly I believe. I hope you were inspired and enjoyed this project. For your pleasure I have included a YOUTUBE to watch my process. I am brand new to YOUTUBE so I would love for you to SUBSCRIBE to my channel  HERE ! Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful month !
