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.

Just Create Art Journal Page – TCW

Hello Everyone!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with a mixed media art journal page using some of my favourite TCW stencils.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To start off I applied TCW9001 White Gesso to my pages as I had some marks on the paper that needed to be covered. I then used a brayer to apply some Paper Artsy chalk acrylic paint in Beach Hut and Inky Pool.

Next I used TCW790 Micro Bricks in the 6×6 stencil with Distress Paint Picket Fence.

Once that was dry, I then used TCW737 Love Sonnet in the 6×6 stencil and Distress Paint Spiced Marmalade.

Once I was happy with the background, I then added some stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps and black archival ink.

Next I stamped onto some tissue paper using Dina Wakley Splatter Girl stamp set and black archival ink. Then torn around the stamped images and using TCW9006 Gel Medium Gloss I painted the area that the tissue paper was going on and once placed on the pages I then painted over the top of the tissue paper making sure the tissue paper was flat.

Here are some close ups

I hope this has inspired you to use your favourite TCW stencils and get creative!!

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.

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.

Spread Your Wings ATC’s – Helmar

Hi there everyone, today I am up on the Helmar Creative Team Blog with these Artist Trading Cards. I have to admit to you all this is the first time I have ever created ATC’s and I think I have found my addiction lol.

Helmar ATC

So let’s get started…… I used my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp onto some old paper I tore out of a book.

Next to adhere the stamped images I used Helmar Spray Adhesive on the back and placed them onto some scrap cardstock.

Next I sealed some white cardstock using clear gesso and my silicone brush. Then dried it with a heat tool.

Now for the fun part…. building my background. For this I used the stamping technique where you stamp the Distress Oxide Inks onto your craft mat and spray with water. Then stamp your cardstock onto the inked area, making sure you dry in between colours.

Distress Oxides Antique Linen

The colours I used was Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo.

I had started stamping with Faded Jeans but the colours where turning to mud so I decided to spray a coat of Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative and now I am able to add the Faded Jeans ink perfectly.

Next I trimmed some Kraft cardstock to 2.5 x 3.5 inches and trimmed my background cardstock a little smaller. Then inked around the edges with Distress Oxides Ink Black Soot.

To adhere all my butterflies and quotes I used Helmar Premium Craft Glue. Then added some washi tape.

I needed some dimension so I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere my 3 butterflies.

To finish off the cards I splattered with Dylusions Ink Black Marble. Here is the finished product.

Treasured Memories Layout – TCW

Hello and happy Friday!!! Today is my turn up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for a very dear friend of mine.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

The papers I used for this layout is the Rosalee range by Penelope Dee. I started off layering my background with plain black and white cardstock, corrugated cardstock and patterned paper.

I used a make up sponge and TCW9001 White Gesso to lightly cover the corrugated cardstock to add a little bit of softness to the layout.

Next I stamped the background with a script stamp and black archival ink. And also stamped the stitches around the edges using Plum archival ink. Next I mixed TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Autumn Maple Crimson to create a pink paste.

Before I applied the paste and adhered my patterned paper to the background, I measured where the paper will be sitting on the layout. I did this so that I knew where to stencil.

Then I applied the mixed paste to my layout using TCW781 Scrollwork stencil in the 6×6.

Next I covered my chipboard mannequin with TCW9002 Black Gesso and once the gesso was dry, I then applied Therm O Web Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive.

Once the adhesive was tacky I then rubbed on Rebehak Meier Mixed Media Transfer Foil Sheets – New Penny.

I then inked my Penelope Dee chipboard title and leaves using archival ink and painted my flowers using the same magical shaker I used for the paste.

Then I adhered all the elements to my layout using a liquid adhesive.

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.

COFFEE – Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone, it’s my turn on the The Crafter’s Workshop blog today with another mixed media art journal page. Here in Australia winter has arrived and I thought I would create a layout that was inspired by “Coffee”- which I am sure most of you would agree is essential for a cold winters day.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To start my pages I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso with a paint brush over both pages and dried with my heat tool.

Now to build my background…. I mixed TCW9023 Blue Jellybean and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint together and then used a brayer to apply to both my pages.

I mixed TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet Heavy Body Acrylic Paint together and using the brayer again applied to my pages.

Once I was finished with the colours I then mixed a small amount of water with TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and using a small paint brush, I splattered all over the pages.

I realized afterwards I may have gotten a little carried away with the paint so now I am using a baby wipe with TCW9002 Black Gesso and just dabbing around the edges.

Now for my stencil and I absolutely love this one! I used 6×6 TCW796 Fresh Coffee and stenciled “Fresh Brewed” for the top of my art journal page and “COFFEE” for the bottom of the page. I used a make up sponge and  TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

Next I stamped my coffee images using Tim Holtz stamp set Fresh Brewed Blueprint onto some white card and then used Distress Crayons to colour them.

I used one of the stars from  TCW796 Fresh Coffee and my Distress Crayon to add to my ice coffee image.

To finish the pages I adhere all my coffee images using a liquid adhesive. I also added some shading using Black Soot Distress Crayon around the coffee cups.

Thanks for dropping and I look forward in sharing my next project with you soon xx
