Reach For The Stars Art Journal Page

Hi there creative lovelies!!! Today I am up on the Snip Art blog with my art journal page I created using the Reach For The Stars collection.
There is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to watch me in action.
I used a watercolour cardstock as my base and with a blending brush I used Distress Oxide Inks to create my galaxy. I also watered down some white paint to splatter some stars.
In the video you will see I originally heat embossed the stars but I felt the colours were too close to the background so I decided to leave them raw which is very new to me.

For the Planets, I used my aqua pen and Distress Oxide inks to add colour and I love how they turned out. For the title I used Finnabair’s Sparks paint and I also watered down the left overs and splattered onto the background to add some shimmer. To finish off the page, I added some paper dolls and used my Fineline Applicator to doodle around the edges.
Here is my video, I hope you enjoy it

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.

Altered Notebook Dusty Attic by Farrel Tailor

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.

These Are Treasured Memories layout

Hi Everyone, I’m back today to share with you my interpretation of the Dusty Attic December Mood Board. These colours are just amazing and I decided to use these colours as the base of my layout.

And this is what I came up with…

I started by using 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy pp – Cloud Watching and white Cardstock as my base. Then mixed some white gesso with Distress Stain Peacock Feathers to create a light blue paint.

Using my fingers I applied the paint onto my paper and used a heat tool to dry. I then applied Nuvo Embellishment Mouse – Pacific Teal using a baby wipe in a swiping motion. I then put a small amount of white gesso onto the baby wipe to help blend the mouse.

I also used the same mousse around the edges of the my photo mount before adhering my photo.

Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Spray – Shabby Turbine Teal to create depth around the torn edges of my paper using a paint brush and some water.

I then added some texture by using TCW Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil.

Now for the chippy!!! I used Dusty Attic Geometric Border, Geometric Corners  and cut them into smaller pieces so I could build a layer with them. I then painted them and the  String Frames Small with Prima Acrylic Paint Sparks – Raven Black. Once dry I then adhered them onto my layout.

I then used my finger to apply a small amount of Prima Acrylic Sparks Paint – Mermaid Sparkle and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal to the geometric pieces.

I also added some stamping using Stampers Anonymous stamps – Ultimate Grunge and Slight Alterations with Ranger Archival Ink – Watering Can.

Then to finish it off I used These Are Treasured Moments chipboard and lightly covered with white gesso using a make up sponge and then blended Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal around the edges. And adhered a tab from Mini Tabs #7 Black.
