To Travel Is To Live Layout

Hey Everyone!! Today I am sharing with you all my latest mixed media layout using some of the new Dusty Attic chipboard and lots of Helmar products. So I was given the theme of planes for my Helmar blog post and decided to scrapbook this photo of myself waiting at the airport.

Helmar and Dusty Attic Farrel Tailor

The first thing I did was create a plane from a mold I had in my stash and used Helmar Acid Free Glue. I dusted some baby powder to the mold first and then let the mold sit for about a day. If you are going to give this ad try please be aware that this glue is flexible so be gentle when you remove it from the mold.

Once it was dry, I painted the plane with TCW9002 Black Gesso and then using a brush, I applied some Art Alchemy Waxes.

For the layout I applied a thin coat of TCW9011 Gel Medium to the 49 and Market Captured Adventures patterned paper. Once it was dry I then added some sprays by 13@rts and Dylusions.

Next I used Travel BordersChevrons Small and To Travel Is To Live chipboard and covered with black gesso.

Then I added 3 colours from the Prima Art Alchemy Waxes – Rose Gold, White Gold and Aged Brass. I just used my fingers to apply these waxes.

I sprayed my flowers using Dylusions Slate Grey

Then added some stamping and Tissue paper to the background before adhering all my layers.

To adhere my photo to the photo mount and the other paper layers I used Helmar Acid Free Glue.

Hello fellow Dusty Attic lovers!!! I am back today to share with you my interpretation of this month’s mood board challenge and I used the colours for my inspiration.

26167721_10214205906842815_2474413129191268015_nDusty Attic July Challenge - Farrel Tailor

I used 7 Dots Studio Chestnuts patterned paper from the Yuletide range as my base background paper. I added some white gesso and Dylusions Calypso Teal spray to the background and then used Stampers Anonymous stamp sets – Ultimate Grunge and Reflections.

I left the chicken wire chipboard raw and cut into 3 sections. I also left 3 of the Industrial Chains raw. For the other 3 chains I painted with white gesso and then used Art Alchemy Waxes in White Gold, Brushed Iron, Aged Brass & Rich Copper.

I also painted the Mini Cogs, Industrial Stars, Ship Wheels and my words from Word Pack #2 with white gesso. The stars & cogs I used Dylusions Calypso Teal and brushed some black ink over the top.

For the title I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks in Ruby over the top of the gesso. I also used the Art Alchemy Waxes on the Ship Wheels chipboard.

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.

For my background cardstock I used Brain Freeze from the 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy range. I used Distress Oxide Ink Ice Spruce and a script stamp by 49 and Market – Pascale’s Writings Stamp.

Once I was happy with my background I then trimmed my Perforated Mesh chipboard into 2 pieces and painted with white gesso. I also painted Scroll Delight chipboard with white gesso.

I then used Prima art alchemy waxes to these chipboard pieces and adhered them to my background.

Love Your Smile – Dusty Attic May Mood Board

Hello Everyone, I am back today to share with you all my take on this month’s Dusty Attic mood board challenge. For my inspiration I decided to focus on the gold, yellow and orange tones for my layout.

May Mood board

And this is what I created……. For the paper I decided to use 7 Dot’s Studio Cotton Candy range as the tones were perfect for the mood board.

FTailor May Moodboard

For the background I mixed 13arts Ayeeda Inks Yellow and Scarlet to create the orange. I also used Darkroom Door Texture Stamp Numbers with black archival ink.

I covered all my chipboard with white gesso and then painted over the Cog Cluster, Skeleton Clock Face small and Fancy Frames #2. I cut 2 sides from the Fancy Frames and adhered them to the photo along with a tab from Mini Tabs #6.

I then covered the chippy with Prima Watercolor Confections Paints – Tropicals and inked around the edges using a black charcoal ink pad.

For my corner cluster of chipboard I used half of the Skeleton Clock Face small and some cogs from the Cog Cluster. I then added my “memories” word from Wordpl@y #2.

To finish off the layout I used Mini Captions #11 (Love Your Smile). For this I painted white gesso, black gesso and Art Alchemy Paints – Metallique Ancient Coin. Then splattered all over the layout using the same paint.

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
