In Nature Mixed Media Canvas

Hello there my lovelies!!!! Well I am sure most of you would have seen the latest 3Quarter Designs release over the weekend – Seasons Palette…… and all I can say is WOW!!! I thought for this collection I would create a mixed media canvas and I can see a lot of layouts being created with this collection too….. just stunning!

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.

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 used alcohol inks to add colour to my glass pebbles (gold mixative and Valencia) and inked my cheese cloth using Art Anthology’s Minx Shimmering Inks – Decadent. Then I added my flowers and art stones.

Thanks for dropping by and I will be back with another project soon

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.

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.

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.

Steampunk ATC’s

Hi there my lovelies!!! Today I am up on the Art Anthology blog and I am sharing with you my steampunk Artist Trading cards using there Colorations Color Sprays.

Steampunk ATC's

For those who aren’t aware Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) are trading cards you create with a theme and swap them with others every month. I find these cards are a great way to get the creative juices flowing so here is how I created mine.

  1. I cut my card stock at 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches and used Darkroom Door’s Measuring Tape stamp with black archival ink. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink pad for the background and sealed it using a fixative spray.

2. Next I sprayed Colorations Color Spray in Sandcastle all over the cards and used my heat gun to dry.

3. Then I sprayed Colorations Spray Siesta Key and again dried with a heat gun. Once the cards were dry, I then sprayed with Colorations Spray Indigo.

4. Then I sprayed my craft mat with water to reactive the left over sprays from my cards and smooshed the cards over the sprays….no wasting lol.

5. I then added some washi tape to the cards and stamped my steampunk stamps onto cardstock and cut them out and adhered everything including the sentiments to the cards.

And just like that you have a set of ATC’s to swap.

This is the list of products that I used:

Colorations: Sandcastle, Siesta Key, Indigo

Stamps: Darkroom Door Measuring Tape Background Stamp and Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Noble Gent 

Tim Holtz stickers and Distress Oxide Ink Spiced Marmalade

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

Altered Notebook

Hi there my lovelies!!!! I back again to share another DT project Art Anthology and today I am sharing my altered notebook. If you would like to watch me create this please click on the video at the end of the blog xx

  1. To start I covered my notebook with tissue paper and then covered with black gesso. I also applied a coat of black gesso to my chipboard pieces and resin.

 

2. Once everything was adhered, I then used the dry brushing technique using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint all over.

3. After drying I then sprays Patience Colorations Spray all over. Then dry brushed Boysenberry Velvet Dimensional Paint to the chipboard and resin pieces.

  

4. Then after a quick dry, I applied Teal Shine Dimensional Paint. Once I was happy with the blend of colours, I then used a gold mousse to highlight all over the notebook.

5. I added some glass glitter and then applied Fiji Velvet Dimensional Paint. I found that the notebook needed a little more “pop” and once I added this, I was happy.

This is the list of products that I used:

Velvet: Fiji, Cotton, Boysenberry

Colorations: Patience

Shine: Teal

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