Notebook November for Dusty Attic – Dream

Hi Everyone, with it being Notebook November this month at Dusty Attic & having so much fun creating my altered notebook last time, I thought I would give it another go.

To begin with I stenciled the background using TCW781 Scrollwork stencil and TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste.

Dream Mixed Media Notebook by Farrel Tailor

I used Dream Catcher #2, Key to my Heart (smaller heart and key) and Mini ABC Set Upper for this notebook. I covered those pieces with white gesso. I applied Finnabair Paper Texture Paste to the Dream Catcher. Once I had adhered the dream catcher, I adhered the key and heart chipboard and 3 flowers.

Next I covered the all the chipboard and flowers with Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint in Raven Black. Then painted the notebook with black gesso and added art stones to the notebook.

I painted the Melange Art Pebbles and ABC set with Art Alchemy Opal Magic Acrylic Paint in Violet/Green. I also applied this paint to the background and a little on the chipboard and flowers. Then to finish off I applied Art Alchemy Opal Magic Acrylic Paint Rose/Gold to highlight.

Just Be Happy Art Journal Page

Happy Thursday Everyone! Today is my turn at The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and I am sharing this page I created using photo paper, Distress Oxides and of course TCW Products. There is also a process video at the end of the blog if you wish to watch me in action.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

For this I used my large Dina Wakely art journal, I am still trying to get use to using such a large journal but who doesn’t love stepping out of their comfort zone? lol

To being I used a sheet of A4 glossy photo paper and apply my distress oxides to the paper using a rubber brayer and also using the smooshing technique.

I used my heat tool to dry between colours. Then used TCW812 Coronet Wreath with more Distress Oxides.

Now for the magical part….. I used a baby wipe to wipe away the oxides and POW!!! The end result is amazing!! The colours are vibrant

I used as make up sponge to apply TCW9002 Black Gesso to TCW749 Floating City.

I used TCW9002 Black Gesso to cover up a page in my journal that I did some experimenting on a while ago. Then for a border, I used TCW804 Mesh Blocks to add some doodling with my Uni Posca white pen.

After adhering my photo paper to the page, I then added some stamping for a title and just like that another art journal page done. Here is the video….

Thanks for dropping and I look forward to sharing my next project with you all soon xx

 

Happy Notes – Altered Notebook for Dusty Attic

Hey Everyone! Over at Dusty Attic we are doing Notebook November so today I am sharing my notebook using the November mood board as inspiration.

26056134_10214205909162873_7431268592972952500_n

For my notebook, I used the purple tones for my inspiration…. this was way out of my comfort zone as I very rarely use purples but I have to say I really enjoyed creating this. So here is my notebook…… oh and I forgot to mention there is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see how I created it.

Farrel Tailor Altered Notebook

I started off by painting my notebook and chippy pieces with black gesso. Then started to build all the layers and texture with stenciling, chipboard, Prima Melange Art Pebbles and art stones.

I used Prima Metallique Plum Preserves Acrylic Paint as a base coat and then used several Art Alchemy Waxes to add different tones. For the butterfly I used Prima Sparks Acrylic Paint in Butterfly Spells and Mermaid Sparkle. Then added some glitter glue for an added sparkle.

To finish off the notebook I added some micro beads in the copper but felt the colour was too strong so I toned them down with some black gesso. (I did this after I filmed)

Play – Dusty Attic October Mood Board

Hey Hey Everyone!! Today I am showing you all my take on this month’s Dusty Attic mood board. I took my inspiration from the blue, green and brown tones and the fact of it being outdoors in nature.

26047425_10214205908682861_6517536944639529117_n

And this is what I came up with….

Play by Farrel Tailor

For the background I used Distress Oxides – Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. The stamps I used were Darkroom Door – Numbers Border stamp and Kaisercraft Brick texture stamp.

Blueprint play

For the title I used Blueprint Play and Industrial Barbed Stars. I covered the stars with Prima Rust Effect Paste and used the 2 Distress Oxides and Prima Art Alchemy Waxes in Green Brocade and Lucky Emerald to add highlights. For the Play chipboard, I inked with black ink and then covered with Faded Jeans Distress Oxides.

Industrial stars border and scrolls

I used the same products above for the second  Industrial Barbed Stars, Industrial Scrolls and Industrial Border #1. I did cut these pieces into sections to make it fit and make the layout look like it was full.

rust effect paste

For the corrugated cardstock, I painted it first with silver acrylic paint and then applied the Prima Rust Effect Paste. I also covered some of the numbers from Roman Numerals in the rust effect paste.

To finish the layout I splattered using the Rust Effect Paste and Distress Oxides.

Witching Hour – Mixed Media Art Journal

Hey Hey!!! I’m not sure about you guys but thank goodness it’s almost the weekend!!! As you may be aware I recently taught at a scrapbooking Retreat in NSW and the theme was Halloween. So I thought why not create a Halloween theme art journal page for my TCW DT project. I also have a process video so please be sure to check it out. I have to apologise for the quality of the video…. the crafting room was a little dark.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To begin I started by blending Distress Oxides in Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber, Dusty Concord and Wilted Violet.

Next I used TCW381s Mini Quatrefoil stencil and using a baby wipe, I used the ghosting technique. This technique lifts the top colour off giving a ghost like effect. I also added some flicks of water and pat dried it with a towel.

Then I used a permanent black gel pen to outline parts of TCW790s Micro Bricks.

Next I stenciled TCW723s Scary Web with Distress Oxide ink Black Soot.

I felt like the page needed something else so I went back and used Distress Oxide ink Ground Espresso over TCW790s Micro Bricks.

I used my alcohol markers to colour the stamped images I used. I used Dylusions Two Heads is Better Thank One set and Visible Image stamp set Glimmer of Light. Once I cut them out I used TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte to adhere them to the pages. I also mixed a small amount of TCW9001 White Gesso with some water and splattered onto my pages.

Take Risks Art Journal Page

Hello there my lovelies!!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop’s blog and I have created this art journal entry. I also have a process video which you can watch at the end of the blog.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I begin with building my background using Dylusions Paint in Squeezed Orange and Vibrant Turquoise and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I use my rubber brayer to apply light coverage to my art journal pages.

Once dry I add some splatters using the left over paint. Then using a make up sponge I apply TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW773s Connected Dots.

Next I randomly apply Vibrant Turquoise paint with TCW764s Scrambled Numbers and dry with my heat gun.

The next layer I use TCW361s Mini Tiny Circles with Squeezed Orange paint.

And for the last layer I use TCW336s Mini Letters with Funky Fuchsia paint.

At the moment I am loving having a border on my art journal pages so here I used some washi tape around the edges and applied TCW9022 Black Gesso with a paint brush.

I stamped my sentiment and image onto some white cardstock and used a Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil for some shading. Then added splatters using TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9015 Black Licorice paint which I watered down.

Fright Night Halloween Layout

Hello everyone!!! Today I am up on the Dusty Attic Blog another Halloween project but this time it’s a layout. I had so much fun creating this layout, it was nice do something a little spooky!!!

Fright Night Halloween layout

For the base cardstock I have used one of the sheets from 49 and Market Rusty Autumn Collection. This purple was perfect for what I wanted to do. I stamped the cracks stamp with black archival ink and added some Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint in Metallique Fresh Orange.

I added white gesso around the edges of the photo and my chipboard pieces – Web Flourish and the small web from Spiders and Web set and adhered them to the layout.

Dusty Attic Fright Night layout

I applied black gesso to the smaller skeleton from the Skeletons pack and then lightly rubbed some Art Alchemy wax in the Brushed Iron. I also used this wax on the Web Flourish.

For the Page Pebbles #14 and Wordpl@y #6 I lightly painted the Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint in Metallique Fresh Orange and then covered the chipboard with black archival ink making sure I used a swiping motion so that the ink didn’t go into the grooves of the chipboard.

Spider close up Halloween layout

For my Redback Spider  I used the smaller spider from the Spiders set. I painted it with black gesso and used a red acrylic paint for the red line.  I also did the same for the smaller spider up on the top left hand corner using Spiders and Web set.

Dusty Attic Fright Night skeleton

For the chain I painted with black gesso and then applied Art Alchemy Waxes in Rich Copper, Bronze Age and Aged Brass. To finish off the layout I also added some stamping around the edges of the patterned paper using Kaisercraft Film Edges clear stamp set.
