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.

Aussie YouTube Hops June 2019 Mixed Media Layout

Hi there my lovelies!! Today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for the Aussie YouTube Hops June 2019. So this month we had to use the mood board for our inspiration. I used the colours of the board and the word ” PLAY”.

Love Always Layout – Dusty Attic Mood Board Challenge

Hello! Hello! Hello! I am back to share with you all my interpretation of this month’s  Dusty Attic mood board.

43952320_10216517091340983_6086288929848295424_o

I will not lie, I found the colours of this mood board quite hard as purple (any shade of it) is a hard colour for me to work with but I love pushing the boundaries and ended up having a lot of fun creating this layout.

Love Always Dusty Attic

For the patterned paper I used 7 Dots Garden Party – the colours matched the mood board perfectly. Along with flowers by Little Birdie and Plum Preserve Metallique Acrylic Paint by Finnabair.

Dusty Attic April Mood Board

The sketch grid stencil I used in the background is by The Crafter’s Workshop and I used Paper Texture Paste by Finnabair. I also added some art stones and beads to the flowers.

Love Always by Farrel Tailor

I covered the Geometric Panel pieces in black gesso and used Art Alchemy Waxes. For the Clockworks chipboard, I covered in white gesso and used the waxes and some archival inks and finally for the title I used archival ink on word “Always” after I painted the words in white gesso.

I used 7 Dots Studio Chestnuts patterned paper from the Yuletide range as my base background paper. I added some white gesso and Dylusions Calypso Teal spray to the background and then used Stampers Anonymous stamp sets – Ultimate Grunge and Reflections.

I left the chicken wire chipboard raw and cut into 3 sections. I also left 3 of the Industrial Chains raw. For the other 3 chains I painted with white gesso and then used Art Alchemy Waxes in White Gold, Brushed Iron, Aged Brass & Rich Copper.

I also painted the Mini Cogs, Industrial Stars, Ship Wheels and my words from Word Pack #2 with white gesso. The stars & cogs I used Dylusions Calypso Teal and brushed some black ink over the top.

For the title I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks in Ruby over the top of the gesso. I also used the Art Alchemy Waxes on the Ship Wheels chipboard.

For my background cardstock I used Brain Freeze from the 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy range. I used Distress Oxide Ink Ice Spruce and a script stamp by 49 and Market – Pascale’s Writings Stamp.

Once I was happy with my background I then trimmed my Perforated Mesh chipboard into 2 pieces and painted with white gesso. I also painted Scroll Delight chipboard with white gesso.

I then used Prima art alchemy waxes to these chipboard pieces and adhered them to my background.

Next I painted 1 French Flourish chipboard with black gesso and lightly covered with the Prima Art Alchemy Waxes. Then I cut it in half and a adhere with the flowers.

Next I used a tab from the Mini Tags #1 chipboard set and adhered it to the back of my photo and then using foam tape I adhered the photo to the layout.

To finish off the layout, I used a quote from Quoted Sentiment #1 Black and cut in half before adhering to my layout.

Love Your Smile – Dusty Attic May Mood Board

Hello Everyone, I am back today to share with you all my take on this month’s Dusty Attic mood board challenge. For my inspiration I decided to focus on the gold, yellow and orange tones for my layout.

May Mood board

And this is what I created……. For the paper I decided to use 7 Dot’s Studio Cotton Candy range as the tones were perfect for the mood board.

FTailor May Moodboard

For the background I mixed 13arts Ayeeda Inks Yellow and Scarlet to create the orange. I also used Darkroom Door Texture Stamp Numbers with black archival ink.

I covered all my chipboard with white gesso and then painted over the Cog Cluster, Skeleton Clock Face small and Fancy Frames #2. I cut 2 sides from the Fancy Frames and adhered them to the photo along with a tab from Mini Tabs #6.

I then covered the chippy with Prima Watercolor Confections Paints – Tropicals and inked around the edges using a black charcoal ink pad.

For my corner cluster of chipboard I used half of the Skeleton Clock Face small and some cogs from the Cog Cluster. I then added my “memories” word from Wordpl@y #2.

To finish off the layout I used Mini Captions #11 (Love Your Smile). For this I painted white gesso, black gesso and Art Alchemy Paints – Metallique Ancient Coin. Then splattered all over the layout using the same paint.

My Absolute Favourite – Dusty Attic April Mood Board 2018

Hey Everyone!! Farrel here today and I am sharing my take on the Dusty Attic April Mood Board. I have to admit I haven’t used these tones of blue and yellow in a while so I decided to step out of my comfort zone a little and use the colours for my inspiration.

26166570_10214205903922742_6626207429847461749_n

The papers I used are by 7 Dots Studio – Dreamscapes and for my background I added some stamping, stenciling (The Crafter’s Workshop stencils) and I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Afternoon Delight Denim.

I covered all my Dusty Attic Chipboard with white gesso and then used my Prima Watercolor Confections – Tropicals to add colour to my title, the foliage and the flower stamens.

I also splattered the background with the left over watercolor paint and LSG magical shaker.
