Upcycled Mixed Media Tins

Hello there my lovelies!! Today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog and I decided to something a little bright and fun and useful at the same time. So I decided to give a coffee container and a Pringles tin a face lift. I also have a video at the end of the blog so please feel free to watch it all happen before your very eyes.

To begin my projects, I applied 2 coats of TCW9001 White Gesso with a paint brush. I dried between coats with my heat tool.

Next I applied a range of acrylic paints to the 2 containers and used my heat tool to dry

For the small coffee container I used TCW827 Spring Medallion in the 6×6 and applied TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with a make up sponge.

For the tall tin I used TCW810 Blooming Garden stencil in the 6×6 along with TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and again used a make up sponge. To finish it off, I used a purple and pink coloured acrylic paint to highlight some of the stencil.

Thanks for dropping and I will be back soon with another project xx

Dusty Attic July Mood Board Challenge – Journey Layout

Wow! Can you believe we are now in JULY?!! I think this year has just flown by….. anyway new month means new mood board challenge at Dusty Attic. So today I am sharing my take on the challenge. I decided to create a layout using a photo of Dwayne and I on the cruise. This layout’s style is very different to my usual style but I wanted to go back to basics.

So let’s get started…..

For the papers I have used 7 Dots Studio’s Air Mail range, which was perfect for the chippy that I used.  I also used their tags, stickers and die cuts. I inked all the edges of my paper, dies and stickers using Distress Archival ink in Vintage photo. I added some stamp stitching around the edges of my background paper using Faded Jeans Distress Archival ink.

For the Compass Rose chipboard I applied some white gesso and then sprayed it with Distress Oxide Sprays – Cracked Pistachio, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain to give a patina type look.

The Travel Border chipboard I applied white gesso again and then using a foam blending tool applied Faded Jeans and Barn Door Distress Archival Ink.

For the Blueprint Journey chipboard I also covered with white gesso and then using Distress Archival ink pad – Spiced Marmalade I swiped the ink pad over the chipboard until it was covered. To finish the layout I splattered using Faded Jeans Distress Stain Spray.

Remember Today Altered Frame – Dusty Attic

Hello Everyone, today is my turn again on the Dusty Attic blog and I am sharing an altered frame I created. I recently taught this frame for the lovely ladies up at Bruce Rock here in Western Australia.Remember Today Frame by Farrel Tailor

I used a Kaisercraft frame and applied Stamperia sand texture paste for the base. Then covered the frame and all the chipboard with The Crafter’s Workshop Black Gesso TCW9002.

I sprayed some of the chipboard with Prima Color Bloom Sprays – Fir Needles and Magic Stone. Then I rubbed Nuvo Embellishment Mouse in Powder Blue and Seaspray Green over the top.

Once all adhered I then used Art Alchemy waxes in White Gold and Green Brocade to add highlights. Then finished it off with some beads.

Make Art – Art Journal Page for Fineline Applicator Australia

Hello and happy Friday to you all!!! Recently I met with the lovely team from Fineline Applicator Aus and I fell in love with their applicators. So today I am sharing an art journal page.

Make Art by Farrel Tailor

I had so much fun creating this page. I started with TCW801 Skylight 12×12 stencil, I used a pencil to trace and then went over with a white gel pen. I then put some TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint into the Fine Tip Applicator with a little bit of water just enough so that it’s not so thick. Let the doodling begin!!!

I then used the standard tip applicator with some TCW9002 Black Gesso and used it to draw some lines around the heart. For the heart I used TCW825 Love Frame stencil 6×6 with some acrylic paint.

I also used the the Black Gesso applicator to go around the title of the page. The stencil I used for this was TCW795 Rustic Signs

Here is a quick video showing how easy it is to these applicators

I have linked the applicators used to the Fineline Applicators website. Thanks for dropping by and I shall be back with more projects soon.
