I used a small square canvas and applied Ranger Crackle Paste focusing more around the edges. I used my heat tool to dry and then applied some powders and sprays in different green tones, then set a side to dry. I painted all my chipboard Marrakesh Trallis and Lacy Ornament in brown acrylic paint.

For the Heart I used Prima Patina Effect Paste. The wings I created using a mold and resin and applied the Patina paste to them as well. I used the bronze paste in the Patina effect paste set to highlight the chipboard and the wings.

The small butterfly I used a the same powders as the background and then used the bronze paste to help in blend more in with the theme of the canvas.

Altered Globe

Hi Everyone!!! Today I am up on the The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and I am sharing with you all an altered globe I created for a class I taught on a crafting cruise last month.

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

So let me share with you on how I created this. I started by painting the countries on the globe using TCW9029 Copper Penny Modeling Paste. I wanted to add a little bit of texture so I dabbed with my paint brush in some areas. The globe I bought from Kmart for $7.

Next I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso for the ocean areas and let dry.

In the meantime, I painted my chipboard pieces and flowers with TCW9002 Black Gesso and dried using my heat tool.

I put a small amount of TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint onto my craft mat and spray with some water to make the make a little runny and then splattered onto my globe using a paint brush.

I also painted the butterflies using the TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint

Next I rubbed some art alchemy waxed over the flowers and chipboard pieces using a small paint brush and my finger.

The last step before adhering all the flowers and chipboard was to stencil onto the mini hot air balloon chipboard pieces. I used TCW771 Two Hearts 6×6 stencil and TCW9029 Copper Penny Modeling paste. I only used the mesh like pattern on this stencil. Once it was all my pieces were dry, I then adhered them to the globe using a strong liquid glue.

Thanks for dropping by and can’t wait to share with you all my next project soon

Altered Cigar Box – Dusty Attic

Hi there everyone! Today I am sharing an altered cigar box I created for a class I taught on a crafting cruise last month using lots of Dusty Attic chippy!!

Farrel Tailor Cigar Box

For the cigar box I used a stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop and Prima Graphite Texture Paste. Then I covered all the chipboard pieces including the cigar box with black gesso.

DA Cigar Box

I cut the Pipework small chipboard into several pieces and adhered them onto the top of the box. I also cut the mini chains in half and adhered them along with the industrial globes and tiny cogs.

I adhered the wings and “create” to the industrial heart, then I used Art Alchemy waxes to add the metallic finishes to the box and the chipboard pieces. To finish it off added some metal brads.

Live Laugh Love Converted MDF Board

Hello Everyone, today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with this off the page MDF Phrase that I converted into an apron Hook for my craftroom.

Farrel-Tailor-apron-hook

 

This project is all about layers so please be preapred there are a lot of process photos but the process itself it quite simple. So lets get started!!

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

I started by giving the mdf board a light standing using fine sandpaper. I then covered it with TCW9016 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint – Spun Sugar using a paint brush. I decided to use paint instead of white gesso because I wanted the rawness of the mdf to come through.

Once the paint was dry, I then mixed TCW9016 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint – Spun Sugar and TCW9023 Blue Jellybean Heavy Body Acrylic Paint together and using a dry brush applied to the the board.

I wanted to create a more worn look so I used a wide dry brush to apply some more Spun Sugar acrylic paint and then added some highlights using Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in 3 colours – Powder Blue, Aquamarine and Pacific Blue. As you can see I’m using my finger to rub randomly onto the MDF board.

Next I mixed some Distress Spray Stain – Weathered Wood with TCW9008 Clear Modeling Paste. Using the TCW742s Hard Textures stencil, I applied my coloured modeling paste through the woodgrain section using an old gift card.

20170829_130908 20170829_130853

I used my heat tool to dry the modeling paste and then lightly brushed my Faded Jeans Distress Ink Pad over the stenciled areas to add some depth. I then used my finger to again rub over the board using some gold texture paste. Next I sprayed all over using Prima Color Bloom Spray Soft Teal and heat set it.

20170829_141804 20170829_143238

I felt there was something else it needed to finish off the worn look, so I added some Prima Art Alchemy Bronze Age Wax using my finger to just highlight certain areas.

Then to finish it off I curled some metal oval embellishments to create hooks and adhered them to the back of the board using a hot glue gun. And finally I sprayed some white and gold twine with Prima Color Bloom Spray Worn Leather and tied this to the board so I can hang on my wall.

Mixed Media Pencil Case

Hey Everyone!! Today I’m sharing with you a canvas pencil case I decided needed a little makeover. I’m sure you all have something in your craftroom that is a little on the boring side whether it is plain or the colour is bland. Well why not give it a makeover using some pretty amazing TCW stencils?

Well with that said, let me show you my process in giving my pencil case a new life!!!

20171031_121807

 

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 a coat of TCW9007 Clear Gesso….why you ask? I found that if the material wasn’t sealed then the paint will be absorbed and your colour will be quite bland. You don’t need a lot, just enough to cover the whole area and then use a heat gun to dry it.

20171031_111013

Once it was dry, I then applied my background colour. I used Dylusions Paints Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine, Fresh Lime, White Linen, Vibrant Turquoise and Funky Fuchsia. I started off applying the paint with a dry paint brush but then decided to use my fingers (I find this gives me more control over the paint). I just layered the paint until I was happy with finish effect. And I dried in between colours.

20171031_11231120171031_112849  20171031_113330

Now for the stenciling – I used 3 of the 6×6 stencils along with TCW’s Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and a make up sponge. So I started with TCW754s – Distressed Details with TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9015 Black Licorice.

The next stencil I used is TCW739s – Trendy Images along with a mixture of TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9022 Grape Jelly.

The last stencil I used is TCW 751s – Kitchen Tiles and I used TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9023 Blue Jellybean to create a light blue colour.

20171031_114253

To finish off the pencil case I used my Uni Posca Paint pens in Black, White, Light Blue, Pink and Yellow to highlight some of the stencils and then applied a light coat of TCW9007 Clear Gesso to seal it all.

Beautiful Moments Mixed Media Canvas

Hey Hey Everyone!!
Today is my turn over on the Sassy Scrappers Blog and I am sharing with you a mixed media canvas I created using 13arts papers and sprays along with Prima’s Color Philosophy Dye Inks. So let give you a quick tutorial in how I created this.

I have to apologise for the process photos…. we have just moved into our new house and the lighting isn’t the best.

I started off by applying modeling paste to my 5×7 inch canvas board and used a comb like tool to create the lined texture. I then applied 13arts Ayeeda Mists Pastel PinkLavender and caramel using a wet paint brush. I also used those sprays to splatter around the edges. Once dry, I then inked around the edges using Prima Color Philosophy Ink – Foggy Nights and with a wet paint brush just lightly went over the edges to create a shadow like effect.

I then cut 2 straws in half and adhered them to the canvas. Next to colour the cheesecloth, I inked my craft mat with Foggy Nights and sprayed with water then rubbed the cheesecloth in the ink and used my heat gun to dry and then adhered to the canvas.

I cut out a paper doily from the 13arts Fly Away pp Days and Nights and sprayed it using Ayeeda Mist Pastel Cobalt. I also used the Fly Away sticker sheet for the title which I trimmed and mounted onto white cardstock.

Next I added some gold wire from my stash and some flowers that I had lightly painted with Pastel Pink and Pastel Caramel spray and then splattered using Dylusions Black Marble spray.

Thanks for dropping by and look forward to sharing my next project with you very soon.
