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.

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.

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.

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.

For my background papers I used 49 and Market Captured Adventures – The Journey and Far Away Land. I used Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint – Mermaid and Caribbean Sea and white gesso for the background colour of the layout.

Then applied some archival ink in Sepia and Coffee to add the different tones for brown. I also dry brushed the flowers with white gesso to tone the colour down.

Let It Snow Altered Frame Dusty Attic

Hey there Everyone, today I am sharing my last 2018 project for Dusty Attic.

 I really wanted to create something with the white Christmas feel unfortunately here is Australia we don’t get the joy of having snow at Christmas time. Then I remembered we visited the snow in 2 years ago and thought PERFECT!! So this is what I created.

Altered Frame - Dusty Attic Farrel Tailor

The frame I used is a floating frame from Kmart. I covered the glass with with some patterned paper and splattered it with gold and blue spray.

For the frame itself I used a stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop TCW742s and TCW9005 modeling paste. I also used Finnabair’s Stone Effect Paste. Then used paints to create the colours of wood lightly dusted with snow. The paint I used was Finnabair Dark Chocolate Impasto paint and Paper Artsy Chalk Acrylic Paints – Mermaid, Mud Splat and Inky Pool.

Altered Frame by Farrel Tailor

I used a small piece of Corrugated Cardstock and painted it with white gesso. I then sprayed my cheesecloth piece with 13 Arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk Ultramarine and Pastel Cobalt.

Altered Frame for Dusty Attic by Farrel Tailor

I used Stampendous Aged Marine Embossing Enamel on my Small String Frame chipboard. And painted my plastic foliage with white gesso.

The Deer Head chipboard I applied a light coverage of the stone effect paste and then painted it with white gesso and Chalk Ultramarine spray. I heat embossed the cosmic swirl chipboard with Range Gold Tinsel embossing powder.

To finish off the frame I added some micro beads and crystals and a sticker from Tim Holtz small talk sticker book and last but not least Sweet Memories sentiment from Wordpl@y #3 Black.

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.

Altered Notebook Dusty Attic by Farrel Tailor

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.

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.

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.
