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

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.

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.

Create Art – Art Anthology

Hey there everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. Well today I am sharing my very first design team member creation for Art Anthology. I have a process video at the end of the blog so feel free to check it out xx

  1. To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.

2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.

3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.

4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.

Here is some more pictures of the finished page

Make Art – Art Journal Page for Fineline Applicator Australia

Hello and happy Friday to you all!!! Recently I met with the lovely team from Fineline Applicator Aus and I fell in love with their applicators. So today I am sharing an art journal page.

Make Art by Farrel Tailor

I had so much fun creating this page. I started with TCW801 Skylight 12×12 stencil, I used a pencil to trace and then went over with a white gel pen. I then put some TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint into the Fine Tip Applicator with a little bit of water just enough so that it’s not so thick. Let the doodling begin!!!

I then used the standard tip applicator with some TCW9002 Black Gesso and used it to draw some lines around the heart. For the heart I used TCW825 Love Frame stencil 6×6 with some acrylic paint.

I also used the the Black Gesso applicator to go around the title of the page. The stencil I used for this was TCW795 Rustic Signs

Spread Your Wings Art Journal Page

Happy Thursday Everyone!! Today I am sharing my newest art journal page for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love how this page turned out, so bright and fun.

 

 

Let’s get to the tutorial!! To be begin, I used a page from an old dictionary and tore that page into strips. I used TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte to adhere to my art journal page.

Once the medium is dry, I then used a paint brush to apply some acrylic chalk paint.

Next I used TCW836 Texture Love stencil with TCW9001 White Gesso and acrylic paint to randomly add some patterns to my art journal. I used a sponge to apply the paint.

The next stencil I used was TCW832 Script Words

I used TCW9001 White Gesso and stamped with a lid to create some circles. Then used my spatula to create a line pattern.

I used archival ink and some different stamps to add more texture to the background.

I then decided to add some more stamped images. I used Distress Crayons to colour the images and to add shading. Here you can see I am using an aqua pen (water pen) to blend the crayon.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed my tutorial xx
