Create quick party invites with Art Anthology

Hello !

Back on the Art Anthology blog today for a pool party project... Invitation cards ! Don't say you give up on summer parties ! I'm sure these invite can be handy... and they are super quick to made...


You will need white cardstock (try the Core'dinations one) and white 4x6 cards (or create cards with white cardstock), a Sizzix die and the Twilight stencil (Art Anthology), Minx in Enchanting, Bankroll, Panache and Majestic over gel medium. The sentiment and the edges of the card are painted in Mayan Gold Velvet.

You will find the tutorial on the Art Anthology blog or on my channel.

Thank you for stopping by. I am moving in a week end, so I will probably not posting during few days, but I already have a new post ready for you. So stay tune !

Bastille's day layout for the July Prima challenge

Hello !

Prima moodboard is filled this month with blue, red and brown colors and combined with the French event in July, it inspired me a new layout about Bastille day for the Make it Prima challenge :


Soooo... On a Vintage Emporium paper, I use a damask stencil with white light gesso and sprikled microbeads in copper and berry over it ( all of these are Prima products). Then I painted the French flag with watercolor.


I added a Say-it-in-Crystal lace border under the picture, painted Prima flowers with watercolor to recreate the tricolor French roundel. The beaded trim was painted with copper paint (still all Prima).


Some vintage metal numbers for the date and the vintage clock die cut under the picture...


The title is the starting words of the French national anthem, made with rub-on letters and rub-on decorations (Prima IOD).

If you didn't know Bastille day is today ! Music, firemen's ball and fireworks are traditional, and as I currently live in Avignon, I will benefit from the theatre festival...

I wish you a great week end (TGIF !) and hope to see you soon !

Mixed media layout about a girl...

Hello !

I'm on the Art Anthology blog today with a new layout about my daughter, using stencils, mediums, die cuts, inks, laces, flowers... So it's a mixed media page...


 Dot Matrix with Leaf Sorbet Dimensional medium and 6×9 Scales with Mayan Gold Velvet were used to build the background, as well as some stamps (Prima Marketing) and distress inks in walnut stain and  mowed lawn (Ranger).
You can also spot some wildflower dies (Sizzix/Tim Holtz) among other things...

A video tutorial is available on the Art Anthology's post or on my YouTube channel to watch the whole process.

I think this layout will be a perfect fit for the Simon Says Sstamp Monday challenge : distress it !

Thank you for your time, I hope to see you soon on this blog for another project !
