A Grateful Heart Art Journal Page for The Crafter’s Workshop

Hi there my lovelies!!! Well today is my last day as a design team member for The Crafter’s Workshop. It has been an amazing 2 years and I feel so humbled to have been apart of such an amazing team and to represent a fabulous company.

Today’s project is an art journal page I created using the quote as my inspiration “Start each day with a grateful heart” and of course I chose my 3 favourite of all time stencils to use.

The video below has all the products I used in the subtitles but if you would like to see step by step process pictures just click here which will take you to The Crafter’s Workshop’s Blog.

Thank you to everyone who has commented or liked my projects over the last 2 years. I also would like to say a huge thank you to The Crafter’s Workshop for having me on their team….. it really has been a blast and I am forever grateful.

Dusty Attic July Mood Board Challenge – Journey Layout

Wow! Can you believe we are now in JULY?!! I think this year has just flown by….. anyway new month means new mood board challenge at Dusty Attic. So today I am sharing my take on the challenge. I decided to create a layout using a photo of Dwayne and I on the cruise. This layout’s style is very different to my usual style but I wanted to go back to basics.

So let’s get started…..

For the papers I have used 7 Dots Studio’s Air Mail range, which was perfect for the chippy that I used.  I also used their tags, stickers and die cuts. I inked all the edges of my paper, dies and stickers using Distress Archival ink in Vintage photo. I added some stamp stitching around the edges of my background paper using Faded Jeans Distress Archival ink.

For the Compass Rose chipboard I applied some white gesso and then sprayed it with Distress Oxide Sprays – Cracked Pistachio, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain to give a patina type look.

The Travel Border chipboard I applied white gesso again and then using a foam blending tool applied Faded Jeans and Barn Door Distress Archival Ink.

For the Blueprint Journey chipboard I also covered with white gesso and then using Distress Archival ink pad – Spiced Marmalade I swiped the ink pad over the chipboard until it was covered. To finish the layout I splattered using Faded Jeans Distress Stain Spray.

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.

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.

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.

44043469_10216517093781044_805334036179320832_o

So for my inspiration I used the colours of the mood board. I also used the picture as well…. when I see this photo I think of how gorgeous the sunset is and what would be magical during a sunset? A hot air balloon ride!!! So here is what I created with all that in mind.Journey Shadow Box By Farrel Tailor
