Altered Gift Box – 3Quarter Designs

Hi there everyone, another month means another new collection by 3Quarter Designs and this collection is called Miss Aeronaut.


Miss Aeronaunt

For this collection I decided to alter a gift box, the box I used is about 11 inches long x 8.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches high. I started by painting the box with black gesso. Then cut “Amelia Earnheart” patterned paper to size, inked the edges using Ground Espresso Archival Ink and adhered to the lid of the box.

Altered Gift Box by Farrel Tailor

I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang magicals set Totally 80’s to add the pink on the background and also on the chipboard pieces. I used “Pink Rock” mat sheets on the hot air balloon chipboard and adhered the chipboard over the top.

I used left over strips from “Amelia Earnheart” and “Jean Batten” pp to cover the sides of the box, inking the side before adhering.

I used the elements sheets to cut out the clockface, butterfly, vintage key and number panel. I stamped 4 circles and an extra butterfly onto some scrap pieces from ‘Jean Batten pp.

I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst spray “Steampunk Sepia” to splatter on the top and used Darkroom Doors Tick Tock stamp set for the sentiment.

3Quarter Designs – Modern Man Collection

Hello there my lovely crafting friends, today I am sharing my latest creations using 3Quarter Designs new collection – Modern Man.

Modern Man

I love love love this collection especially having 4 men big and small in my house. I originally wanted to create some masculine projects but thought I would think outside the box and create something a little different. So here is my art journal page and mixed media heart canvas.

Modern Man Art Journal Page by Farrel Tailor

For my art journal page I used the chipboard cogs and heat embossed with using Wow Embossing powder. For the background paper I used 4th sheet shown on the paper pack picture. I used some PaperArtsy stamps and Darkroom Door stamps on the background along with a paint pen to add some doodling around the edges of my page. For my title I the title strip from one of the papers and finished with some splatters.

Go where your heart takes you by Farrel Tailor

The background paper I used on my heart is the top 3rd sheet shown in the paper pack picture above. I added some brick stenciling along with texture paste. I used impasto paint to cover my large cog chipboard along with the moulds. I also used the left overs from the paper I used on the background for the banners, inside the circle frame and the torn pieces behind the frame. I also used the chipboard pocket and covered it with some paper and made it look like a banner which is sitting behind the cog.

I also used some rust effect paste and art stones for the finishing touches.

I hope you like my projects and I will be back soon with more of my creations.




Ridiculously Happy layout

Hi there my lovelies, well start of the month means new collection over at the 3Quarter Designs headquarters and boy this one is absolutely stunning.

For my background I used the first 2 top sheets in the image above and inked the torn edges with Faded Jeans Archival Ink. I then stenciled the background using Art Anthology’s Diamond Grunge stencil and Faded Jeans distress oxide ink pad.

Sapphire Wings Layout by Farrel Tailor

I sprayed my lace using Seth Apter’s new Izink sprays in Outremer and also used it to splatter the background and spray on some flowers and the lattice chipboard which I cut into pieces to create a border.

I used the elements sheets to fussy cut the old clock, butterflies, frame and some flowers. I also used 2 of the mat sheets for behind my photo. To finish off the layout I used a Tim Holtz stamp called Papillon for the background script.
