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.

Seaside Escape by Farrel Tailor

For my background papers I used 49 and Market Captured Adventures – The Journey and Far Away Land. I used Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint – Mermaid and Caribbean Sea and white gesso for the background colour of the layout.

Seaside Escape by F Tailor

I covered all my chipboard pieces in white gesso and used Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint – Mermaid and Caribbean Sea to cover the starfish, page pebble and wordpl@y (seaside escape). Then applied some archival ink in Sepia and Coffee to add the different tones for brown. I also dry brushed the flowers with white gesso to tone the colour down.

For the ship wheel I heat embossed using Stampendous Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel. I tore a piece of corrugated cardstock and using my finger rubbed some white gesso around the edges. To colour the cheesecloth I used Prima Color Bloom spray – Summer Sky and 13 Arts Ayeeda Chalk Mist – Turquoise.

For my layout I am using some of the chipboard from the new release and Jen has done an amazing job creating these little beauties. I actually had to stop myself from adding more chippy!!!

For all of my chipboard pieces apart from the wordpl@ay #1 piece, I applied a coat of white gesso and then added colours using various Prima inks and sprays. I also applied some inks to the Dusty in Bloom flowers.

For my background I used have used Prima Color Bloom Sprays – Gold Foil and Golden Walnut, along with some script stamping and heat embossing.

I covered all my chipboard with white gesso, I then glitter embossed the Decorative 6×4 chipboard frame and painted the title and leaves with Gold Gesso. I also painted my large fabric flower with Gold Gesso. The Dusty Attic Blooms I sprayed with Prima Gold Foil spray and added some gold Kindy Glitz.

Then to finish it off I added some splatters using watered down white gesso and Gold Foil and Golden Walnut spray.

So Much Goodness Mixed Media Layout

Hi there my fellow crafty lovelies!!! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and start to the new year. Today I am sharing with you all my latest layout using some absolutely stunning chipboard by Dusty Attic.

20180102_105139[1]

I started by applying a light coat of white gesso to my chipboard – Branch #3, Doily #10Decorative Frame #2 and Mini Caption #10 . I then used Prima Color Bloom Sprays in Peony, Storm Cloud and Summer Sky. For the Branches I used Dylusions Mushy Peas spray.

20180102_100718

 For the background I have used Maja Designs Sofiero – Strolling down the rose path pp. I have to admit this is the first time I have used their papers and I have fallen in love!!! I started by distressing all the around the edges and inking around the edges with Watering Can Archival Ink. Then I added some stenciling using TCW261s Mini Art Is and Light and Fluffly Modeling paste. I tore the corrugated card into a strip and dried brush with white gesso. Once it was dry I then sprayed Color Bloom Peony and Storm Cloud sprays using a small amount of water help blend the colours.

20180102_100731

I then used a strong glue to adhere my chipboard, 49 and Market flowers and photo mount. I then used a dry brush to add some white gesso to my flowers along with some Prima Color Bloom Summer Sky spray.

To finish off the layout I mixed some gel medium with some green prills and crystal ice cubes and applied around my flowers.

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.

20170829_121716 20170829_122349

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.

20170829_125702 20170829_123728

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.

20171121_105340

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.

Here are some close ups of the end result…
