Hanging Out Layout – Dusty Attic

Hey there everyone, today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with a layout I created of my 3 boys playing video games. As a mumma to a 15yr old boy, I find it very difficult to capture any photos of my oldest and the only way I can get it is if he doesn’t know I’m taking photos sooooo I was in stealth mode when I captured this photo. And extra bonus…. all the boys are together.

The background cardstock is from 7 Dots Studio – Paint Chips range and stamped randomly using Tim Holtz Reflections stamp set and black archival ink.

I used PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint in Inky Pool to colour the stars and title chipboard. I inked the edges with black archival ink and then used watered down white and black gesso to splatter all over. I also used Lindy’s Magical Shakers to colour some white cardstock, I stamped randomly and then adhere to the back of the stars.

I painted the Broken Bits Number pieces with white gesso and then sanded the edges. I also painted the back of my light bulb with some gold paint. For the underground network large chipboard, I trimmed it down and painted with black gesso. I then used Liquid Pearls to create the look of a circuit board as the photo is all about gaming.

Dusty Attic October Mood Board Challenge – Altered Notebook

Hi there my creative lovelies, today I am sharing with you all my October Mood Board Challenge project for Dusty Attic. I loved doing this mood board and I used the colours as my inspiration.

Here is my altered notebook – The notebook I used is from Kmart here in Australia and I primed both the front and back cover with black gesso. I used the Brick Wall Stencil along with some Prima Texture Powder and gesso to create my own texture paste.

I trimmed a piece from Geometric Panel and adhered it to the center of my notebook. I then used an assortment of cogs from Mini Cogs #2, Cogs #1 and Cogs #3. For the corners I used the bolts from Nuts and Bolts set.

I then adhered the Prima Melange Pebbles to the journal and painted everything in black gesso. Once it was all dry, I then used Finnabair’s Metal Effect Texture Paste to build up my colour and texture. Then to finish it off I used Dare To Dream stamp set by Finnabair for my dragonfly and the word “journal”. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Archival Ink.

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.

I used Dusty Attic’s Crackle Varnish for on the Industrial Dragonfly and painted it with Paperartsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint in Inky Pool. To finish off the canvas I added some art stones, Sisal and adhered the Happiness from Wordpl@y #2 Black.

Embrace The Inner Queen Canvas – Dusty Attic

Hi there my lovelies!!!!

Recently I was shown the world of Powertex. ( A textile hardener) And straight away I loved it and thought I would share my very first project using Powertex and Dusty Attic. I would just like to add that I barely broke the surface in learning about this form of mixed media but hey we all have to start somewhere!!!

Embrace your inner queen by Farrel Tailor

I used LOTS of different mixed media projects to create this canvas including Finnabair Texture Paste (Metal Effect & Patina Effect), Finnabair Impasto Paint, Metallique Acrylic Paint, The Crafter’s Workshop stencils, Finnabair Art Stones and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Squirts just to name a few.

The flowers I used are a mixture of Prima, Green Tara Flowers and some fabric ones I got years ago. I just love how this medium makes everything hard and this helps give texture.

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.

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.

I painted the back of the light globe with Art Alchemy Opal Magic paint and added some fibres, art stones and micro beads to finish it off.

Believe In Daydreams Mixed Media Tag

Hi Everyone Farrel here and today I am sharing another mixed media tag with you all. I have process shot so sit back and relax while to take you through on how I created this.

mixed media tag by farrel tailor

I had so much fun creating this tag, I have only recently discovered my new found love when I created the Christmas Tag last month and I have decided to create tags for everything now!!! lol

TCW809.jpg

To start of I used the Tim Holtz large Tag Die cut out my chipboard tag. I then covered the tag using some patterned paper I found in my stash. I applied a light coverage of Gel Matte Medium (TCW) and once dried I then used TCW804 Mesh Blocks stencil with some sand texture paste.

stamping.jpg

Once the paste was dry, I then added some stamping using Black Archival Ink and a Finnabair stamp.

Then I used the 3 LSG magicals in the picture to build up my background colours. I love how the sand texture paste looks with these colours added to it.

Next I coated my Dusty Attic chipboard and a metal flower with white gesso. I did cut the Industrial Corner and the Cyclone Wire to fit the tag.

20190115_125322.jpg

I then decided to use Finnabair’s Rust Effect Paste on the chipboard pieces and the metal flower. I also used Sepia Archival Ink to cover the ticket chipboard.

20190115_131706.jpg

I used TCW Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint on the Prima Flowers and once all the pieces were adhered, I then added some Sisal, Mica Flakes and some beads.
