Beautiful Dreams Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone! I am back again today on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with this art journal page I recently created.

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

For my background I randomly added Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers in Time Travel Teal, Polka Purple and Autumn Maple Crimson. Then sprayed with water and put aside to dry.

Using a make up sponge, I applied TCW9002 Black Gesso over the top of TCW775 Scalloped Mandala 6×6 stencil.

I liked the pattern the make up sponge made so I continued the dabbing all over the page.

I thought my page needed something else to break up the black so I used TCW261 Art Is 6×6 stencil and TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I used another make up sponge to dab through the stencil. Because I had already used the Scallop Mandala stencil, I laid it on top of the script stencil so I knew where not to apply the gold paint.

Next I painted the chipboard feathers and chains with TCW9002 Black Gesso. Because chipboard is quite thick, I split the chipboard in half first.

Now to add colour to the feathers and chains. I started off by added art alchemy waxes and then added some TCW9036 Champagne Gold Modeling Paste by using my finger in a dabbing motion.

Next I added some Fluro Pink acrylic paint and finished them off with TCW9001 White Gesso.

For the chains I also used art alchemy waxes in White Gold and Rich Copper but it needed to be a little lighter so I added Brushed Iron as the end. I used a liquid glue to adhere the chains and feathers.

To finish off the page, I added a quote from Tim Holtz quotes sticker book and inked around the edges using Salty Ocean Distress Oxides. Then used some Uni Posca pens to draw around the edges of the page.

Here is a close up of the finished page

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial

Altered Globe

Hi Everyone!!! Today I am up on the The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and I am sharing with you all an altered globe I created for a class I taught on a crafting cruise last month.

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

So let me share with you on how I created this. I started by painting the countries on the globe using TCW9029 Copper Penny Modeling Paste. I wanted to add a little bit of texture so I dabbed with my paint brush in some areas. The globe I bought from Kmart for $7.

Next I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso for the ocean areas and let dry.

In the meantime, I painted my chipboard pieces and flowers with TCW9002 Black Gesso and dried using my heat tool.

I put a small amount of TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint onto my craft mat and spray with some water to make the make a little runny and then splattered onto my globe using a paint brush.

I also painted the butterflies using the TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint

Next I rubbed some art alchemy waxed over the flowers and chipboard pieces using a small paint brush and my finger.

The last step before adhering all the flowers and chipboard was to stencil onto the mini hot air balloon chipboard pieces. I used TCW771 Two Hearts 6×6 stencil and TCW9029 Copper Penny Modeling paste. I only used the mesh like pattern on this stencil. Once it was all my pieces were dry, I then adhered them to the globe using a strong liquid glue.

Thanks for dropping by and can’t wait to share with you all my next project soon

Altered Cigar Box – Dusty Attic

Hi there everyone! Today I am sharing an altered cigar box I created for a class I taught on a crafting cruise last month using lots of Dusty Attic chippy!!

Farrel Tailor Cigar Box

For the cigar box I used a stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop and Prima Graphite Texture Paste. Then I covered all the chipboard pieces including the cigar box with black gesso.

DA Cigar Box

I cut the Pipework small chipboard into several pieces and adhered them onto the top of the box. I also cut the mini chains in half and adhered them along with the industrial globes and tiny cogs.

FTailor DA cigar box

I adhered the wings and “create” to the industrial heart, then I used Art Alchemy waxes to add the metallic finishes to the box and the chipboard pieces. To finish it off added some metal brads.

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.

My Absolute Favourite – Dusty Attic April Mood Board 2018

Hey Everyone!! Farrel here today and I am sharing my take on the Dusty Attic April Mood Board. I have to admit I haven’t used these tones of blue and yellow in a while so I decided to step out of my comfort zone a little and use the colours for my inspiration.

26166570_10214205903922742_6626207429847461749_n

The papers I used are by 7 Dots Studio – Dreamscapes and for my background I added some stamping, stenciling (The Crafter’s Workshop stencils) and I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Afternoon Delight Denim.

Dusty Attic April Mood Board Challenge

I covered all my Dusty Attic Chipboard with white gesso and then used my Prima Watercolor Confections – Tropicals to add colour to my title, the foliage and the flower stamens.

I also splattered the background with the left over watercolor paint and LSG magical shaker.

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.

20180301_133446

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.

Dusty Attic March 2018 Mood Board – A Captured Moment

Good Morning Dusty Attic Fans!! Today I am sharing with you all my take on the March Mood Board Challenge.

For my layout, I decided to use the pink and blue tones along with some flowers.

Farrel Tailor Layout

The papers I used some oldies by Prima – Printery Collection and Almanac Collection. To create a watercolour effect, I used the smooshing technique with Distress Oxides Broken China and Tattered Rose. I also added some text stamping to the background.

20180301_115723

I covered all my chipboard using White Gesso. For the Mini Captions #11 title piece, I used Dylusions Vanilla Custard Spray and lightly dabbed onto the chipboard with a sponge.

20180301_115727

Here I have used Marrakesh Trellis Small and have trimmed around the outside to remove the border and covered with white gesso. Once dry, I then sprayed some  Dylusions Spray Vanilla Custard and then lightly dabbed some Dylusions Paint Peony Blush using a sponge.

20180301_115736

Next I used Iron Garnish #3  and again used the Dylusions paint Peony Blush with a small amount of white paint to tone it down a little and applied it with a sponge. I then cut the chipboard down the center to create a corner border.

Farrel Tailor Layout

To finish off the layout, I added some stitching stamps by Bo Bunny and some flowers by 49 and Market.
