Hello there my lovely friends, today I am sharing my project for 3Quarter Designs using their new collection Luminous Aura.

Cover_Sheets_luminous_Aura_600x

For my project I decided to create an album for a friend of mine who can use it for her travels in the future. This range is absolute stunning and I managed to use every single piece in the pack for this album……fist pump moment right there!!!

Spread Your Wings Album by Farrel Tailor

The album itself I purchased from Kmart here in Australia and it was a kraft based album. I added some stenciling on the cover and painted with black gesso. The chipboard frame is apart of a 3 pack from Kaisercraft which I inked and added crackle accents to. The title I used one of Tim Holtz Quote Chips.

Spread Your Wings for 3Quarter Designs

The flowers are by Green Tara and Prima and everything else is from the 3Quarter Design collection pack.

I have a very quick flick through video of the inside of the album so if you would like to see it please click here.

Enjoy and I will be back soon

Here is my layout using the following pieces from the collection – Vintage and Treasure Element sheets, Postcards and Forest Leather mat sheets, Tags and Plants patterned paper and the chipboard frame.

My Sweetheart by Farrel Tailor

For the background I tore in half “plants” pp and adhere it to “Tags” patterned paper.  I used Art Anthology’s Art Deco stencil with Stamperia Crackle Paste and used Distress Oxide Ink in Forest Moss to add some colour between the stenciled area. I stamped Kaisercraft’s script background stamp with Coffee Archival Ink.

My Sweetheart - 3Quarter Designs

The chipboard frame I cut in half and heat embossed using Stampendous Aged Bronze Embossing Enamel. The flowers I used are 49 and Market Vintage Shades Ecru Bouquet and Penelope Dee Serenade Blooms which I inked with Coffee Archival Ink

The element sheets I did a little fussy cutting of the leaves, clock and frame (I also cut the middle out of the frame). I also used the tag from “Tags” patterned paper. I used the Postcard mat for my photo cluster  and Forest Leather for my photo mount. I added some Art Stones and and Distress Oxide Sprays – Vintage Photo and Forest Moss for some splatters in the background.

Paradise Found Layout – Art Anthology

Hi there my creative lovelies!! Today I am sharing my newest project for Art Anthology.

At the end of the blog is my process video – feel free to check it out xx

  1. To begin with I applied a thin coat of clear gesso to my patterned paper. Why do I do this you may ask? It is to seal the paper so that I can add my mediums to the paper without it buckling. Once dry I then using AA’s stencil Keyhole and Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie.

2. After drying the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some clear crackle medium and dried again. I then sprayed the crackled area with water and using a paint brush I applied Siesta Key and Granny Smith Colorations Sprays.

3. I sprayed my flowers with water and then sprayed Colorations Spray – Sandcastle. I used my heat tool to dry the flowers.

4. I painted the flowers with Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent using a paint brush. I also painted my chipboard title with the same ink.

5. I then adhered all my pieces to the layout along with mini prillz and art stones. And finished the layout off with some stamping.

I used these products on my project:

Stencil – Keyhole

Colorations Sprays – Siesta Key, Granny Smith, Sandcastle

Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent

Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie

I was planning on recording my process with this project but silly me forgot to charge my phone first and then I didn’t realise that the video had stopped recording…. oops. Anyway I shall give you a quick tutorial on my canvas – So I used a 5×7 inch canvas and covered it using the paper with Hydrangeas on it.

Nature Mixed Media Canvas by Farrel Tailor

I used a palette knife to scrape some black gesso around the edges. I painted the film strip chipboard from the collection, my resin frame and metal butterfly with black gesso. For the frame and butterfly I used Art Alchemy Waxes to add some colour.

Using the same patterned paper, I tore 2 strips using the lighter part of the paper and inked with Distress Archival Inks and adhere to both sides of the film strip. I also cut the quote strip at the bottom of the paper and mounted them onto the “Pine” photo mats.

I the heart and word “Dreamer” are from the collections quotes and elements sheet. I applied some glossy accents to the word Dreamer. I used resin wings, key and stars and painted them with Art Alchemy Sparks paint and then highlighted with a wax.

One of a Kind Tag – Art Anthology

Hi there my crafty followers, today I am up on the Art Anthology Blog with this Mixed Media tag. There is a process video located at the end of the blog so please feel free to click on it to watch me in action xx.

I started my tag by using Stone Effects – Bone with Art Nuveau stencil. After drying with my heat tool, I then added white gesso and also applied some crackled paste.

Once dry and all my elements on the tag have been adhered and covered with white gesso, I then applied Colorations Color Spray – Siesta Key. Next I used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panache on the background and used a little bit of water to help the ink spread around the tag.

 

After the ink has dried, I then spray Colorations Color Spray Peacock Feathers to create some depth to the tag. To break up some of the blue on the tag, I then used Rust Texture Set on some of the elements on the tag.

 

After adhering my chipboard butterfly, I then added Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent. Then to finish off the tag, I added the gold paste from Rust Texture Set to highlight.

 

 AA products products used:

Stencil – Art Nuveau

products.Altered Reverse Frame by Farrel Tailor

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.
