Altered Guitar – Snip Art

Hello there crafty peeps!!! Today I wanted to share my latest project for Snip Art. (click here to go to the blog for more details) I was given the task of hosting this month’s mood board which is pretty cool. So I created the below mood board with a project in mind.

6th - 31st June 2020

I have wanted to create something using Snip Art’s MDF guitar and finally I got to do it. The guitar is quite long so I made the tag from packing boxes.

Guitar Tag by Farrel Tailor

I used several mixed media products including crackle medium, acrylic paint, rice paper and moulds to get the effect I finished with.

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.

Hanging out by Farrel Tailor

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.

Altered Coffin for Dusty Attic

Happy Halloween Everyone!!! Today I am sharing my Altered Coffin for Dusty Attic. I’m not sure about you, but when I get an idea in my head I need to get it to paper asap otherwise it does my head in lol. So I got my amazing husband to cut for me from MDF board, I have wanted to do a project like this for a few years now and I am so happy with how it turned out.

Altered Coffin by Farrel Tailor

To start with I applied white gesso to the board and then added my stenciling using Stamperia crackle paste. I then added some stamping to the background using black archival ink.

I applied gesso to all my chipboard pieces and adhered them to the board. I used stone effect paste on the skull to give some texture.

Halloween Dusty Attic by Farrel Tailor

I painted the whole board using Prima Liquid Acrylic paint and once dry I then applied Deco Art Antiquing Cream in Raw Umber. Then used a baby wipe to pull some of the colour back. I then used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers in Black Forest Black to highlight areas.

Remember Today Altered Frame – Dusty Attic

Hello Everyone, today is my turn again on the Dusty Attic blog and I am sharing an altered frame I created. I recently taught this frame for the lovely ladies up at Bruce Rock here in Western Australia.Remember Today Frame by Farrel Tailor

I used a Kaisercraft frame and applied Stamperia sand texture paste for the base. Then covered the frame and all the chipboard with The Crafter’s Workshop Black Gesso TCW9002.

Altered Frame by Farrel Tailor

I sprayed some of the chipboard with Prima Color Bloom Sprays – Fir Needles and Magic Stone. Then I rubbed Nuvo Embellishment Mouse in Powder Blue and Seaspray Green over the top.

Remember Today Frame

Once all adhered I then used Art Alchemy waxes in White Gold and Green Brocade to add highlights. Then finished it off with some beads.
