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.

Treasured Memories Layout – TCW

Hello and happy Friday!!! Today is my turn up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for a very dear friend of mine.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

The papers I used for this layout is the Rosalee range by Penelope Dee. I started off layering my background with plain black and white cardstock, corrugated cardstock and patterned paper.

I used a make up sponge and TCW9001 White Gesso to lightly cover the corrugated cardstock to add a little bit of softness to the layout.

Next I stamped the background with a script stamp and black archival ink. And also stamped the stitches around the edges using Plum archival ink. Next I mixed TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Autumn Maple Crimson to create a pink paste.

Before I applied the paste and adhered my patterned paper to the background, I measured where the paper will be sitting on the layout. I did this so that I knew where to stencil.

Then I applied the mixed paste to my layout using TCW781 Scrollwork stencil in the 6×6.

Next I covered my chipboard mannequin with TCW9002 Black Gesso and once the gesso was dry, I then applied Therm O Web Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive.

Once the adhesive was tacky I then rubbed on Rebehak Meier Mixed Media Transfer Foil Sheets – New Penny.

I then inked my Penelope Dee chipboard title and leaves using archival ink and painted my flowers using the same magical shaker I used for the paste.

Then I adhered all the elements to my layout using a liquid adhesive.

Treasured Moments – Dusty Attic

Hi there everyone, today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created using some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard along with the stunning Penelope Dee range Rosalee which I recently won through a competition on Instagram.

F Tailor Dusty Attic

For my background I used The Crafter’s Workhsop White Gesso and Art Alchemy Sparks paint – Butterfly Spells to add a softness around my photo. I used Distress Ink Victorian Velvet to ink around the edges of my patterned papers and also used the ink and paint to splatter.

I stamped the background using Archival Ink Plum and Penelope Dee Rosalee stamp – Vintage Rose. I only used the script sections on the stamp.

f-tailor-dusty-attic1-e1528756053771.jpg

I covered the Iron Garnish 3 chipboard with white gesso then heat embossed it using Ranger Rose Gold Embossing Powder and Stampendous Aged Rose Embossing Enamel. I then cut the chipboard in half so that it would wrap around the photo.

Using the Quoted Sentiments #1 Black, I cut one of the sentiment strips in half before adhering to my layout. I also stamped onto my photo cluster using the same Penelope Dee stamp set as before but this time using black archival ink.

To finish off the layout I added one of the tags from Mini Tags #5 Black and some flowers from my stash including flowers by Penelope Dee, Green Tara and Couture Creations.  I inked some of flowers using the Sparks paint and Distress Ink.

Memories Made Mixed Media Layout

Hello Everyone!!! Today I am sharing a layout I created for The Crafter’s Workshop and Dusty Attic.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I started by sealing my 12×12 watercolor cardstock with TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium using my 2″ silicone brush and applying TCW9001 White Gesso to the edges of my photo. Once the edges were dry I then used Therm O Web Rebekah Meier Designs Mixed Media Foam Sheets to add dimension to the back of my photo.

Next I used TCW541s Mini Believe Script stencil and TCW9008 Clear Modeling Paste in 3 sections of the cardstock.

Once I dried the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some magical shakers to the background staying in the stenciled area.

Next I used TCW454s Mini Specimens stencil and Distress Oxide ink pad – Black Soot. But because of the all the texture on the cardstock, I decided to change to TCW9015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

For the next step I used TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and TCW456s Mini Sketch Grid. I used a make up sponge to apply the paint to the layout.

Now for the chipboard, I used a swiping motion to apply TCW9001 White Gesso. I used this method because I didn’t want the gesso to go into the grooves of the chipboard. Then I used Magical Shakers – Guten Tag Teal to add color to the chipboard using a paint brush.

For the Geometric Panel chipboard, I painted them with TCW90015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and used my heat tool to dry.

And to finish off the layout, I adhered all my pieces using Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue.

Perfect Moments – Mixed Media Layout

Hello there my crafty followers!!! Today I have a layout I have created for The Crafter’s Workshop and Dusty Attic using some awesome new products.

Farrel-tailor-perfect-moments

Please excuse the quality of some of the photos as I was away on a crafty weekend and the lighting wasn’t the best.

TCW9001 Matte gel medium

To start off with my layout I lightly apply TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium to seal my page. I have used 7 Dots Studio range – Writer’s Block. I tend to do this with all my layouts as 9 times out 10 I have no idea where my layouts will take me and it is better to be prepared.

TCW9001 white gesso

Next I use my silicone brush to add strokes of TCW9001 White Gesso to the area that my photo will go. I have used short strokes rather than long ones – I think it gives more of a grunge look.

TCW9033 Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste

Once the gesso is dry I then use TCW790s Micro Bricks stencil and TCW9033 Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste. I have to say this is my new favourite modeling paste!!! It is just amazing – really creamy and the colour is stunning.

TCW790s Micro Bricks Stencil and white gesso

Next I tear up some Corrugated cardstock and using my finger, I lightly rub some TCW9001 White Gesso and adhere to my layout. I decided for this layout that I would use raw chipboard. Here I have used Industrial Globes and Mini Chains – 10pk.

TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste

To finish off the background I used TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste and watered it down so that I could splatter it. I also did the same using TCW9011 White Gesso.

Next I created my photo mount using more papers by 7 Dots Studio – Writer’s Block and also added the following chipboard Clockworks Small, Mini Tabs #4 and Industrial Corners.

So the brief was to create something that is inspired by the word ” Birthday” and has to have at least 2 tags. This photo of Noah on this 13th birthday last month was perfect – spending time at his favourite place doing what he loves with is best friends.

So Much Goodness Mixed Media Layout

Hi there my fellow crafty lovelies!!! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and start to the new year. Today I am sharing with you all my latest layout using some absolutely stunning chipboard by Dusty Attic.

20180102_105139[1]

I started by applying a light coat of white gesso to my chipboard – Branch #3, Doily #10Decorative Frame #2 and Mini Caption #10 . I then used Prima Color Bloom Sprays in Peony, Storm Cloud and Summer Sky. For the Branches I used Dylusions Mushy Peas spray.

20180102_100718

 For the background I have used Maja Designs Sofiero – Strolling down the rose path pp. I have to admit this is the first time I have used their papers and I have fallen in love!!! I started by distressing all the around the edges and inking around the edges with Watering Can Archival Ink. Then I added some stenciling using TCW261s Mini Art Is and Light and Fluffly Modeling paste. I tore the corrugated card into a strip and dried brush with white gesso. Once it was dry I then sprayed Color Bloom Peony and Storm Cloud sprays using a small amount of water help blend the colours.

20180102_100731

I then used a strong glue to adhere my chipboard, 49 and Market flowers and photo mount. I then used a dry brush to add some white gesso to my flowers along with some Prima Color Bloom Summer Sky spray.

To finish off the layout I mixed some gel medium with some green prills and crystal ice cubes and applied around my flowers.
