Notebook November for Dusty Attic – Dream

Hi Everyone, with it being Notebook November this month at Dusty Attic & having so much fun creating my altered notebook last time, I thought I would give it another go.

To begin with I stenciled the background using TCW781 Scrollwork stencil and TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste.

Dream Mixed Media Notebook by Farrel Tailor

I used Dream Catcher #2, Key to my Heart (smaller heart and key) and Mini ABC Set Upper for this notebook. I covered those pieces with white gesso. I applied Finnabair Paper Texture Paste to the Dream Catcher. Once I had adhered the dream catcher, I adhered the key and heart chipboard and 3 flowers.

Next I covered the all the chipboard and flowers with Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint in Raven Black. Then painted the notebook with black gesso and added art stones to the notebook.

I painted the Melange Art Pebbles and ABC set with Art Alchemy Opal Magic Acrylic Paint in Violet/Green. I also applied this paint to the background and a little on the chipboard and flowers. Then to finish off I applied Art Alchemy Opal Magic Acrylic Paint Rose/Gold to highlight.

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.

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.

rust effect paste

For the corrugated cardstock, I painted it first with silver acrylic paint and then applied the Prima Rust Effect Paste. I also covered some of the numbers from Roman Numerals in the rust effect paste.

To finish the layout I splattered using the Rust Effect Paste and Distress Oxides.

Altered Frame – Dusty Attic

Hey Hey my mixed media followers!!!

Today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with this  mixed media altered frame. I created this frame to demo at the Dusty Attic Retreat last month and I had so much fun creating it.

I have had such an overwhelming response to the frame that I am teaching it here in Perth next month and also at another retreat in October in NSW so I won’t be able to giveaway too many details.

Farrel Tailor Dusty Attic altered frame

The frame I used is a shadow box photo frame and I used Dusty Attic Texture Paste along with Prima Rust Effect Paste and some Prima Sprays.

The centre of the frame I used some chipboard pieces, Jumbo Cogs, Monarch Butterflies, Mini Number Grid, embossing powder, Dusty Attic Rusting Powder and some inks.

I added some Dusty Attic Pearls, Tim Holtz Stickers and also added some stamping to the chipboard pieces.

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.

Ftailor Helmar Glue with 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.

FTailor background

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

TCW9002 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.

TCW9011 Gel Matte Medium

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

To adhere my plane,chipboard pieces and flowers to my layout I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

Here are some close ups of the layout.

Dusty Attic July Challenge – Fun Times Together Layout

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.

da-chains-ftailor.jpg

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.

DA industrial stars

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.

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.

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.
