Here is my layout using the following pieces from the collection – Vintage and Treasure Element sheets, Postcards and Forest Leather mat sheets, Tags and Plants patterned paper and the chipboard frame.

My Sweetheart by Farrel Tailor

For the background I tore in half “plants” pp and adhere it to “Tags” patterned paper.  I used Art Anthology’s Art Deco stencil with Stamperia Crackle Paste and used Distress Oxide Ink in Forest Moss to add some colour between the stenciled area. I stamped Kaisercraft’s script background stamp with Coffee Archival Ink.

The chipboard frame I cut in half and heat embossed using Stampendous Aged Bronze Embossing Enamel. The flowers I used are 49 and Market Vintage Shades Ecru Bouquet and Penelope Dee Serenade Blooms which I inked with Coffee Archival Ink

The element sheets I did a little fussy cutting of the leaves, clock and frame (I also cut the middle out of the frame). I also used the tag from “Tags” patterned paper. I used the Postcard mat for my photo cluster  and Forest Leather for my photo mount. I added some Art Stones and and Distress Oxide Sprays – Vintage Photo and Forest Moss for some splatters in the background.

Paradise Found Layout – Art Anthology

Hi there my creative lovelies!! Today I am sharing my newest project for Art Anthology.

At the end of the blog is my process video – feel free to check it out xx

  1. To begin with I applied a thin coat of clear gesso to my patterned paper. Why do I do this you may ask? It is to seal the paper so that I can add my mediums to the paper without it buckling. Once dry I then using AA’s stencil Keyhole and Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie.

2. After drying the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some clear crackle medium and dried again. I then sprayed the crackled area with water and using a paint brush I applied Siesta Key and Granny Smith Colorations Sprays.

3. I sprayed my flowers with water and then sprayed Colorations Spray – Sandcastle. I used my heat tool to dry the flowers.

4. I painted the flowers with Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent using a paint brush. I also painted my chipboard title with the same ink.

5. I then adhered all my pieces to the layout along with mini prillz and art stones. And finished the layout off with some stamping.

I used these products on my project:

Stencil – Keyhole

Colorations Sprays – Siesta Key, Granny Smith, Sandcastle

Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent

Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie

Happiness – Altered Reverse Canvas

Hi there my creative friends, today I am sharing my mood board challenge project for Dusty Attic. For this challenge, I decided to use the blue/grey tones as my inspiration along with the picture of flowers.

I started with covering my whole canvas with white gesso, then mixed Prima Texture Powder with white gesso to create a texture paste. I used the Brick Wall Stencil all around the sides of the reversed canvas. Once the paste was dry I then painted over the top with Paperartsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint in Inky Pool. I then dry brushed Stamperia Home Deco Paint in Warm White over the bricks.

I added another stencil from my stash to the back of the canvas and used the blue texture paste from Prima Old Walls set. For the Ornate Circle Frames Small I painted with white gesso and used White Gold Art Alchemy Wax all over to give an aged effect.

I painted the Mystic Flourish with Stamperia’s Home Deco Chalk Paint in Smoke grey and adhered them so they overlapped behind the dragonfly. I added some blue glitter to the back of my art pebbles and then painted the tops with the smoke grey paint.

I used Dusty Attic’s Crackle Varnish for on the Industrial Dragonfly and painted it with Paperartsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint in Inky Pool. To finish off the canvas I added some art stones, Sisal and adhered the Happiness from Wordpl@y #2 Black.

Mixed Media Wooden Disc

Hey there Everyone, Today I am on the Dusty Attic blog with a project I created a few months ago for some classes I taught at a retreat in Bruce Rock. I was given a Kaisercraft MDF round plaque to alter and this is what I created.

This project is all about layers and chipboard. I used a few products including tissue paper to create texture to the background and I painted all chipboard with black gesso. I used Art Alchemy Waxes (Old Silver, Blue Velvet & Satin Turquoise) on the chipboard and Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Artisian Powder in Trianon Patina on the MDF board.

I also used Prima Art Stones and I created the half domes with resin and molds.

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.
