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.

So for my inspiration I used the colours of the mood board. I also used the picture as well…. when I see this photo I think of how gorgeous the sunset is and what would be magical during a sunset? A hot air balloon ride!!! So here is what I created with all that in mind.Journey Shadow Box By Farrel Tailor

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.

For my background papers I used 49 and Market Captured Adventures – The Journey and Far Away Land. I used Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint – Mermaid and Caribbean Sea and white gesso for the background colour of the layout.

Seaside Escape by F Tailor

I covered all my chipboard pieces in white gesso and used Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint – Mermaid and Caribbean Sea to cover the starfish, page pebble and wordpl@y (seaside escape). Then applied some archival ink in Sepia and Coffee to add the different tones for brown. I also dry brushed the flowers with white gesso to tone the colour down.

For the ship wheel I heat embossed using Stampendous Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel. I tore a piece of corrugated cardstock and using my finger rubbed some white gesso around the edges. To colour the cheesecloth I used Prima Color Bloom spray – Summer Sky and 13 Arts Ayeeda Chalk Mist – Turquoise.

Christmas Tag – Dusty Attic

OMG can you believe it is December?!!! Where the heck has this year gone? Well today is my turn up on the Dusty Attic blog and I am sharing with you my interpretation of this month’s mood board….. and can I just say Wow!!! I love these colours this month, very rarely will I do anything with a Christmas theme. Not because I don’t like Christmas….. I LOVE Christmas but I find it is a busy time of year and photo’s are never how I like them but I thought I would change it up this year and create a Christmas Tag.

26167275_10214205909602884_1533054477810715677_n

I used a chipboard sheet and cut it to 3 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches. The first paper layer is a Basic Grey pp and the second is 7 Dots Studio – Cotton Candy range.

Christmas Tag by Farrel Tailor for Dusty Attic

I tore up a piece of corrugated cardstock and dry brushed white gesso onto it. I adhered it and some cheesecloth to the tag. I also cut a silver and white paper straw in half and adhered it to the corrugated cardstock.

Christmas Tag by Farrel Tailor

I used white embossing powder to cover my small string frame and Twisted Iron #2 chipboard and adhered them to the tag. I painted the flowers with Art Alchemy Metallique Light Patina acrylic paint and added some antique silver Glitzin’ Glamour to the center of the flowers before adhering to the tag.

Next I covered the Wordpl@y #5 with white gesso, making sure I get into the letters. Once dry I lightly covered the chipboard with some silver ink. Then to finish off the tag I added some art stones and pebbles as fillers and added a chalk spray in turquoise over the art stones.

Faith Mixed Media Canvas – Dusty Attic

Hi there my wonderful followers!!! Today is my turn on the Dusty Attic blog and guess what? Yep it’s the start of the month which can only mean 1 thing….. New mood board!!

26000980_10214205908282851_4938130860843855380_n

 I used the colours and the nature pics for my inspiration and this is what I created.

Farrel Tailor Dusty Attic September MB

I used a small square canvas and applied Ranger Crackle Paste focusing more around the edges. I used my heat tool to dry and then applied some powders and sprays in different green tones, then set a side to dry. I painted all my chipboard Marrakesh Trallis and Lacy Ornament in brown acrylic paint.

Farrel Tailor Faith Canvas Dusty Attic

For the Heart I used Prima Patina Effect Paste. The wings I created using a mold and resin and applied the Patina paste to them as well. I used the bronze paste in the Patina effect paste set to highlight the chipboard and the wings.

The small butterfly I used a the same powders as the background and then used the bronze paste to help in blend more in with the theme of the canvas.

Wow can you believe it is already AUGUST?!!! I seriously have no idea where this year has gone! So today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with my interpretation of the August mood board and can I just say this month’s board is absolutely stunning!!! I used the colours for my inspiration and was lucky enough to have the perfect photo to match!!

26001040_10214205907762838_5480928651298618496_n

For my layout I am using some of the chipboard from the new release and Jen has done an amazing job creating these little beauties. I actually had to stop myself from adding more chippy!!!

Farrel Tailor Living The Dream

For all of my chipboard pieces apart from the wordpl@ay #1 piece, I applied a coat of white gesso and then added colours using various Prima inks and sprays. I also applied some inks to the Dusty in Bloom flowers.

For my background I used a stencil and modeling paste to add some texture. I also heat embossed the frame around the photo and then added some highlights with inks.
