Mixed Media Wooden Disc

Hey there Everyone, Today I am on the Dusty Attic blog with a project I created a few months ago for some classes I taught at a retreat in Bruce Rock. I was given a Kaisercraft MDF round plaque to alter and this is what I created.

This project is all about layers and chipboard. I used a few products including tissue paper to create texture to the background and I painted all chipboard with black gesso. I used Art Alchemy Waxes (Old Silver, Blue Velvet & Satin Turquoise) on the chipboard and Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Artisian Powder in Trianon Patina on the MDF board.

I also used Prima Art Stones and I created the half domes with resin and molds.

Create Art – Art Anthology

Hey there everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. Well today I am sharing my very first design team member creation for Art Anthology. I have a process video at the end of the blog so feel free to check it out xx

  1. To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.

2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.

3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.

4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.

Here is some more pictures of the finished page

Discover Mixed Media Tag for Dusty Attic

Hey Hey my lovelies!!! Today is my turn on the Dusty Attic blog and today I  am sharing my August mood board challenge project. 44035713_10216517096341108_154288878973353984_o

For my inspiration I used the picture and the some of the colours. When I look at this picture it makes me think of travelling somewhere tropical so my tag is just that….. travelling and discovering.

Discover Mixed Media Tag by Farrel Tailor

I covered the 2 tags with Tim Holtz Postale tissue wrap and inked them with Vintage Photo Distress Archival Ink. Then applied a white crackle paste. Once dry, I then added some blue ink to highlight the crackle. I used the same ink to colour the resin stars and highlighted with some bronze wax.

I covered the Industrial Balloon and Nautical Frame chipboard with Art Anthology Rust Effect Paste. Then I adhere paper to the back of the chipboard from Stamperia – Around The World Range. I also added some of the blue ink to the paper to match the background of the tag.

I heat embossed the Diamond Panel with Stampendous Marine Embossing Enamel and trimmed to fit the tag.

Dusty Attic August Challenge by Farrel Tailor

I inked the Geo Tribal Arrow with Vintage Photo Archival Ink and covered with Dusty Attic Clear Crackle Varnish. I heat embossed the Roman Numerals with a bronze embossing powder. For the Discover title, I used black embossing powder and then applied a light coat of orange metallic acrylic paint.

To finish off I added art stones and micro beads.

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.
