Spread Your Wings Album for 3Quarter Designs

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

Journey Mixed Media Layout for Dusty Attic

Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day with all your family and friends. Today I am sharing my DT project for Dusty Attic with this mixed media layout I created which would be perfect for any travel photos you may have taken over the Christmas holidays.

Journey Layout by Farrel Tailor

My background paper is by 13@rts His & Her Range and I added some watered down black gesso as my focal point. I used Dusty Attic’s Arrows Stencil with some white gesso for the background. The film strip I found in my stash and I think it may have been on of Kaisercraft’s acetate sheets.

All the chipboard pieces I painted with white gesso, the Polaroid chipboard I added some crackle paste and then used Distress Oxide Ink pads for colour. I also added the same inks to the large tag and Chain Circles.

79228116_1501310610016415_7767003714031714304_n

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

My Sweetheart layout 3Quarter Designs

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.

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!

Cover_Sheets_Seasons_Palette_600x

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 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.

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.

Dusty Attic Layout by Farrel Tailor

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.

To finish off the board I added some stamping to the Spider and bat
