Recycle Challenge over at Art Anthology

The Art Anthology design team ladies were challenged to create a project using recycled materials in honor of Earth Day on April 22nd.

So today I would like to share my Re-purposed project.  A couple of years ago I bought several Christmas boxes and I still had a couple of them left so ... I decided to decorate my Christmas box with only what I had around the house.

I also got my Art Anthology color pallet together.

Since my challenge was to Re-Use, Re-Cycle I tried not to use any manufactured embellishments, so I made my own flowers and leaves.  One of the things I did was to use burlap and cardboard to make my leaves.

I loved using up bits and pieces I and recycling; this was a great challenge and it was fun.  I hope you enjoyed my decorated box today.  Please go on over to Art Anthology and say hello.  I have posted a video on the blog.
Happy Scrapping
Art Anthology Product Used:
Sorbet: Mi Bella, Evergreen, Lagoon, Baby Blue Eyes, Big Dip O Ruby

New Album for Art Anthology

Hi, wow so happy today.  It is my second post for Art Anthology! I am very excited, and today sharing an album I was able to make very shabby style.  We are still introducing ourselves over at Art Anthology so I did want to create something that speaks to me personally.  Yes, it is albums.  You all know how much I love making them.

I haven't received my goody DT box yet, but I already own some Art Anthology because it is awesome product.  So I used what I had which led to me designing this pretty album

I already knew that I was going to use black and that my album was going to be made from envelopes. I was thinking mostly of techniques because I want to show the versatility of the Art Anthology products.  My techniques for today are stamping and stenciling.  I used sorbet "Black Leather Jacket" to stencil the front, back and the binding.
I also used the same sorbet to stamp some of my pages.  All I did was run my brayer through a glob of sorbet on my plate and smooth it over my stamp.  The image came out perfect and bonus textured!

If you haven't been over to the Art Anthology blog please go check it out.  There are some amazing artist on that design team and they all have a specialty.  For more photos of my shabby album today, please go visit my post over at Art Anthology.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Art Anthology Products Used:
Sorbet: Black Leather Jacket, Colorations: Raider, Fern Leaf

Other Products Used:
Paper: Prima Marketing Inc., Glitz, Bazzill, Embellishments: Prima Marketing, Glitz, Mellissa Francis, ZVA, K&Co., Tim Holtz, Stamps: Kaiser Craft, Maya Road, Stencil: Crafters Workshop

To Spring and New Adventures

This is my last post for Basically Bare after almost 3 years of being on their team.  It has been a good three years.  I was able to make lots of albums (my favorite) and made some friends along the way.

I decided to make this butterfly card because butterfies signify new beginnings right?  or did I make that up.  Well anyway that is what it means to me.  I first dry embossed the base card, I then placed my black cardstock on the base.  I then decided to stencil my third layer with gesso. 
Then the fun part, I start to layer whatever is around me.  I ended up using the Basically Bare canvas leaves and also the cardboard heart on this card.  Then I sprayed and used sorbet from Art Anthology to finish the card.
I decided to make a second card ...
For this card I used the Basically Bare "Gears" and also the "Fanciful Frames".  I sprayed more Art Anthology on the felt frame and used my paint brush to flick more spray over the entire card.
For more pictures of my cards please go on over to my post on Basically Bare.  They have a new and awesome design team over there so please continue to go on over and see what they create for you.
thank you for stopping by ... happy scrapping
