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.

For my inspiration I used the picture and the some of the colours. When I look at this picture it makes me think of travelling somewhere tropical so my tag is just that….. travelling and discovering.

Discover Mixed Media Tag by Farrel Tailor

I covered the 2 tags with Tim Holtz Postale tissue wrap and inked them with Vintage Photo Distress Archival Ink. Then applied a white crackle paste. Once dry, I then added some blue ink to highlight the crackle. I used the same ink to colour the resin stars and highlighted with some bronze wax.

I covered the Industrial Balloon and Nautical Frame chipboard with Art Anthology Rust Effect Paste. Then I adhere paper to the back of the chipboard from Stamperia – Around The World Range. I also added some of the blue ink to the paper to match the background of the tag.

I heat embossed the Diamond Panel with Stampendous Marine Embossing Enamel and trimmed to fit the tag.

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.

43952991_10216517094701067_5050524319076057088_o

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.

Journey by Farrel Tailor

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.

Journey Layout by Farrel Tailor

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.

Journey Dusty Attic Layout by Farrel Tailor

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.

43880446_10216517092501012_7536265284772954112_o

This month I focused my attention to the colours of the mood board and the flowers. This is what I created…

Create Canvas by Farrel Tailor

I stenciled the background of the canvas with Ranger Crackle Medium and a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop TCW833 Fantastical . Then I used Purple and Blue Chalk Spray by 13Arts. I also added a little bit of stamping to the stenciled area.

I covered all the chipboard with TCW9001 white gesso and then cut both frames in half. Once all adhere to the canvas, I used Ken Oliver colour burst powders on the chipboard as well as the 13ARts sprays.

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.

Happy Notes – Altered Notebook for Dusty Attic

Hey Everyone! Over at Dusty Attic we are doing Notebook November so today I am sharing my notebook using the November mood board as inspiration.

26056134_10214205909162873_7431268592972952500_n

For my notebook, I used the purple tones for my inspiration…. this was way out of my comfort zone as I very rarely use purples but I have to say I really enjoyed creating this. So here is my notebook…… oh and I forgot to mention there is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see how I created it.

Farrel Tailor Altered Notebook

I started off by painting my notebook and chippy pieces with black gesso. Then started to build all the layers and texture with stenciling, chipboard, Prima Melange Art Pebbles and art stones.

Farrel Tailor Notebook Dusty Attic

I used Prima Metallique Plum Preserves Acrylic Paint as a base coat and then used several Art Alchemy Waxes to add different tones. For the butterfly I used Prima Sparks Acrylic Paint in Butterfly Spells and Mermaid Sparkle. Then added some glitter glue for an added sparkle.

To finish off the notebook I added some micro beads in the copper but felt the colour was too strong so I toned them down with some black gesso. (I did this after I filmed)

Play – Dusty Attic October Mood Board

Hey Hey Everyone!! Today I am showing you all my take on this month’s Dusty Attic mood board. I took my inspiration from the blue, green and brown tones and the fact of it being outdoors in nature.

26047425_10214205908682861_6517536944639529117_n

And this is what I came up with….

Play by Farrel Tailor

For the background I used Distress Oxides – Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. The stamps I used were Darkroom Door – Numbers Border stamp and Kaisercraft Brick texture stamp.

Blueprint play

For the title I used Blueprint Play and Industrial Barbed Stars. I covered the stars with Prima Rust Effect Paste and used the 2 Distress Oxides and Prima Art Alchemy Waxes in Green Brocade and Lucky Emerald to add highlights. For the Play chipboard, I inked with black ink and then covered with Faded Jeans Distress Oxides.

Industrial stars border and scrolls

I used the same products above for the second  Industrial Barbed Stars, Industrial Scrolls and Industrial Border #1. I did cut these pieces into sections to make it fit and make the layout look like it was full.
