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.

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.

So for my inspiration I used the colours of the mood board. I also used the picture as well…. when I see this photo I think of how gorgeous the sunset is and what would be magical during a sunset? A hot air balloon ride!!! So here is what I created with all that in mind.Journey Shadow Box By Farrel Tailor

Be Awesome Today – LSG June Challenge

Hi there everyone!!! Today I am sharing my take on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang June 2019 Challenge. This is my first time doing their challenge and I loved every minute creating my mini disc. I just adore this colour combo! If you would like to join in this month, click here to go to their blog.

20160922_132135

For my background, I applied some TCW9001 white gesso to a chipboard disc along with some stamping, I used a Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set with black Versafine. I then added some crackle medium through TCW790 Micro Bricks stencil.

LSG June Monthly Challenge

I then started building my background colour. I started off with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Squirts – Emerald Eh? Once it was dry I then applied Starburst Squirts – Loonie Toonie Teal.

LSG monthly challenge

I added Art Alchemy Wax – Firebird onto the stenciled area but thought it needed a little bit more orange so I mixed white gesso, water and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Oktoberfest Orange and splattered onto the disc.

I also used Tim Holtz paper dolls, small talk sticker sheets and vintage design tape.
