Journey Mixed Media Layout for Dusty Attic

Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day with all your family and friends. Today I am sharing my DT project for Dusty Attic with this mixed media layout I created which would be perfect for any travel photos you may have taken over the Christmas holidays.

My background paper is by 13@rts His & Her Range and I added some watered down black gesso as my focal point. I used Dusty Attic’s Arrows Stencil with some white gesso for the background. The film strip I found in my stash and I think it may have been on of Kaisercraft’s acetate sheets.

All the chipboard pieces I painted with white gesso, the Polaroid chipboard I added some crackle paste and then used Distress Oxide Ink pads for colour. I also added the same inks to the large tag and Chain Circles.

Season’s Greetings Card – Art Anthology

Hi there everyone, I am back with another project share and today I decided to create a Christmas card. I know it is very rare of me to create a card but I thought it might be time to step out of my comfort zone for a little bit.

Season's Greetings Card by Farrel Tailor

  1. To start my card I used an old music sheet from my stash and sprayed all over using Colorations Spray – Warm. Once dry, I then tore to fit my card.

2. I inked the edges of my music sheet with Vintage Photo archival Ink and then stenciled the whole area of the sheet using AA’s Clear Coat Dimensional Medium – Splashed and Art Deco stencil.

3. Next I painted my Green Tara large Poinsetta flower with Gold Metal Effects medium using a paint brush. I applied 2 coats of this for complete coverage.

4. Next I used a paint brush to paint my chipboard flourishes using Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent. Make sure you give this a good shake to make sure all the shimmering goodness is throughout the ink.

5. Then all there is needs to be done is adhere everything to the card and I found some Christmas stamps in my stash which I used on some white card stock and used Vintage Photo archival Ink. The backing of the sentiment I used some glitter paper and adhere a piece of ribbon from my stash also.

For the background I tore in half “plants” pp and adhere it to “Tags” patterned paper.  I used Art Anthology’s Art Deco stencil with Stamperia Crackle Paste and used Distress Oxide Ink in Forest Moss to add some colour between the stenciled area. I stamped Kaisercraft’s script background stamp with Coffee Archival Ink.

The chipboard frame I cut in half and heat embossed using Stampendous Aged Bronze Embossing Enamel. The flowers I used are 49 and Market Vintage Shades Ecru Bouquet and Penelope Dee Serenade Blooms which I inked with Coffee Archival Ink

The element sheets I did a little fussy cutting of the leaves, clock and frame (I also cut the middle out of the frame). I also used the tag from “Tags” patterned paper. I used the Postcard mat for my photo cluster  and Forest Leather for my photo mount. I added some Art Stones and and Distress Oxide Sprays – Vintage Photo and Forest Moss for some splatters in the background.

A Dog’s Life Layout – Dusty Attic

Wow can you believe it is December?!!! I have no idea where this year has gone…. Today I am on the Dusty Attic blog with my December Mood Board Challenge. Many of you know I find it hard to create with purple tones so I decided to go with the blue and brown tones for this challenge and since it is summer here in Australia, what better way to celebrate that than with a beach layout.

Here is my layout – for my background I used 49 and Market patterned paper from their Captured Adventures range and DA’s Map Stencil with modeling paste. I added a wood grain stamp and used Distress Oxide Inks to create a watercolour effect.

A Dog's Life by Farrel Tailor

I painted all my chipboard with white gesso and used Distress Oxide inks for the Driftwood, title, starfish, ships wheel and Fish Net Panel chipboard.
