Wild & Free – Mixed Media Picture Frame

farrel-tailor-wildandfree

Today I am sharing an altered picture frame I created as my design team project for both The Crafter’s Workshop and Dusty Attic. I bought the frame from Kmart a few months ago for about $4 and it has been sitting in draw waiting for a project until now!

I have created a process video if you would like to see how I created this but be prepared it is almost 30 min long!! I did try to cut it down as much as possible without you missing out on the process.

 

Here are some close ups of the picture frame and if you would like to the step by step process, you can click here which will take you to the TCW blog.

Boys will be Boyz Mixed Media Layout

Today I am sharing with you my newest creation for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love creating grungy masculine layouts and I actually got my inspiration from the More than Words Challenge.

So this is what I created – if you want to see the full tutorial please click here to go to The Crafter’s Workshop Blog.

So the brief was to create something that is inspired by the word ” Birthday” and has to have at least 2 tags. This photo of Noah on this 13th birthday last month was perfect – spending time at his favourite place doing what he loves with is best friends.

These Are Treasured Memories layout

Hi Everyone, I’m back today to share with you my interpretation of the Dusty Attic December Mood Board. These colours are just amazing and I decided to use these colours as the base of my layout.

mood board

And this is what I came up with…

cover

I started by using 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy pp – Cloud Watching and white Cardstock as my base. Then mixed some white gesso with Distress Stain Peacock Feathers to create a light blue paint.

Using my fingers I applied the paint onto my paper and used a heat tool to dry. I then applied Nuvo Embellishment Mouse – Pacific Teal using a baby wipe in a swiping motion. I then put a small amount of white gesso onto the baby wipe to help blend the mouse.

I also used the same mousse around the edges of the my photo mount before adhering my photo.

Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Spray – Shabby Turbine Teal to create depth around the torn edges of my paper using a paint brush and some water.

I then added some texture by using TCW Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil.

Now for the chippy!!! I used Dusty Attic Geometric Border, Geometric Corners  and cut them into smaller pieces so I could build a layer with them. I then painted them and the  String Frames Small with Prima Acrylic Paint Sparks – Raven Black. Once dry I then adhered them onto my layout.

I then used my finger to apply a small amount of Prima Acrylic Sparks Paint – Mermaid Sparkle and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal to the geometric pieces.

I also added some stamping using Stampers Anonymous stamps – Ultimate Grunge and Slight Alterations with Ranger Archival Ink – Watering Can.

20171204_152226

Then to finish it off I used These Are Treasured Moments chipboard and lightly covered with white gesso using a make up sponge and then blended Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal around the edges. And adhered a tab from Mini Tabs #7 Black.

I covered  Industrial Globes, Vintage Keys, Cog Cluster, Geometric Corners, Cog Border #3 and Roman Numerals with Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint Silver Spoon and Brass Hardware and then applied Prima Rust Paste

Bare Feet & Salty Hair Mixed Media Layout

Happy Monday Everyone! Here in Australia we have been experiencing some amazing summer weather so I thought I would create a layout using one of my favourite photos of the 4 men (big and small) in our family.

20171105_124603

I tore a sheet of Corrugated Card and with a dry brush I light added some white gesso.

For the chipboard, I used Creative Layers #1 and Mini Captions #13. I covered the chipboard pieces with white gesso and then sprayed them using Prima Color Blooms sprays – Summer Sky & Soft Teal. I felt it needed another colour so I lightly spritzed using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Steampunk Sepia and fell in love with how it turned out. I also added some Dylusions Black Marble spray for the words “Feet” & “Hair” just to highlight.

20171105_124644

For the background I used TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil with Clear Modeling Paste by The Crafters Workshop and Finnabair Stone Effect – Pumice. The sprays I used are Prima’s Color Bloom Summer Sky, Soft Teal and Dragonfly Blue. The colours were perfect on top of Blue fern Studios wanderlust – mountain view.

20171105_124632

To finish it off I added some stamping using Finnabair Rust & Dust stamp set and both Art Stones and Mini Art Stones as well as some splattering using LSG Steampunk Sepia and the Color Bloom sprays.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to see my work xx
