 I used the colours and the nature pics for my inspiration and this is what I created.

I used a small square canvas and applied Ranger Crackle Paste focusing more around the edges. I used my heat tool to dry and then applied some powders and sprays in different green tones, then set a side to dry. I painted all my chipboard Marrakesh Trallis and Lacy Ornament in brown acrylic paint.

For the Heart I used Prima Patina Effect Paste. The wings I created using a mold and resin and applied the Patina paste to them as well. I used the bronze paste in the Patina effect paste set to highlight the chipboard and the wings.

The small butterfly I used a the same powders as the background and then used the bronze paste to help in blend more in with the theme of the canvas.

Mixed Media Father’s Day Tags

Hello Everyone!!! Today is my turn on the Helmar Creative Blog and I was given the theme of Men. So I decided to create some tags for Father’s Day.

Farrel Tailor Helmar Fathers Day Tags

To start with the tags I used Distress Oxide Ink in Tea Dye and stamped it on my craft mat. Then sprayed some water and smooshed my tag through the ink.

Tea Dye Distress Oxide

I used the same technique using Frayed Burlap making sure I dried between each colour.

I then sprayed a coat of Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative Spray to seal those colours and then added Crushed Olive Distress Oxide ink. This spray stops the colours from turning into a muddy mess.

I used the same technique again with Peeled Paint Oxide Ink and used my heat gun to dry.

Then inked around the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.

Next I added some stamping using black archival ink and some Tim Holtz stamps.

I wanted to add some texture so I stamped this Darkroom Door stamp onto some calico and frayed the edges.

Then used Helmar Fabric Glue to adhere it to the tag.

To add some height I used Helmar Scrap Dots adhesive to the back of my gentleman and placed them onto my tag.

Then to finish the tag off I stamped some letters onto some white cardstock and used Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides. Then adhered them to the tag using Helmar Premium Craft Glue.

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!!!

Farrel Tailor Living The Dream

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 a stencil and modeling paste to add some texture. I also heat embossed the frame around the photo and then added some highlights with inks.

To Travel Is To Live Layout

Hey Everyone!! Today I am sharing with you all my latest mixed media layout using some of the new Dusty Attic chipboard and lots of Helmar products. So I was given the theme of planes for my Helmar blog post and decided to scrapbook this photo of myself waiting at the airport.

Helmar and Dusty Attic Farrel Tailor

The first thing I did was create a plane from a mold I had in my stash and used Helmar Acid Free Glue. I dusted some baby powder to the mold first and then let the mold sit for about a day. If you are going to give this ad try please be aware that this glue is flexible so be gentle when you remove it from the mold.

Ftailor Helmar Glue with mold

Once it was dry, I painted the plane with TCW9002 Black Gesso and then using a brush, I applied some Art Alchemy Waxes.

For the layout I applied a thin coat of TCW9011 Gel Medium to the 49 and Market Captured Adventures patterned paper. Once it was dry I then added some sprays by 13@rts and Dylusions.

Next I used Travel BordersChevrons Small and To Travel Is To Live chipboard and covered with black gesso.

TCW9002 Black Gesso

Then I added 3 colours from the Prima Art Alchemy Waxes – Rose Gold, White Gold and Aged Brass. I just used my fingers to apply these waxes.

I sprayed my flowers using Dylusions Slate Grey

FTailor Little Birdie Flowers

Then added some stamping and Tissue paper to the background before adhering all my layers.

TCW9011 Gel Matte Medium

To adhere my photo to the photo mount and the other paper layers I used Helmar Acid Free Glue.

To adhere my plane,chipboard pieces and flowers to my layout I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

Here are some close ups of the layout.

Dusty Attic July Challenge – Fun Times Together Layout

Hello fellow Dusty Attic lovers!!! I am back today to share with you my interpretation of this month’s mood board challenge and I used the colours for my inspiration.

26167721_10214205906842815_2474413129191268015_nDusty Attic July Challenge - Farrel Tailor

I used 7 Dots Studio Chestnuts patterned paper from the Yuletide range as my base background paper. I added some white gesso and Dylusions Calypso Teal spray to the background and then used Stampers Anonymous stamp sets – Ultimate Grunge and Reflections.

I left the chicken wire chipboard raw and cut into 3 sections. I also left 3 of the Industrial Chains raw. For the other 3 chains I painted with white gesso and then used Art Alchemy Waxes in White Gold, Brushed Iron, Aged Brass & Rich Copper.

DA industrial stars

I also painted the Mini Cogs, Industrial Stars, Ship Wheels and my words from Word Pack #2 with white gesso. The stars & cogs I used Dylusions Calypso Teal and brushed some black ink over the top.

For the title I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks in Ruby over the top of the gesso. I also used the Art Alchemy Waxes on the Ship Wheels chipboard.

Spread Your Wings ATC’s – Helmar

Hi there everyone, today I am up on the Helmar Creative Team Blog with these Artist Trading Cards. I have to admit to you all this is the first time I have ever created ATC’s and I think I have found my addiction lol.

Helmar ATC

So let’s get started…… I used my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp onto some old paper I tore out of a book.

Next to adhere the stamped images I used Helmar Spray Adhesive on the back and placed them onto some scrap cardstock.

Next I sealed some white cardstock using clear gesso and my silicone brush. Then dried it with a heat tool.

TCW clear gesso

Now for the fun part…. building my background. For this I used the stamping technique where you stamp the Distress Oxide Inks onto your craft mat and spray with water. Then stamp your cardstock onto the inked area, making sure you dry in between colours.

Distress Oxides Antique Linen

The colours I used was Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo.

Distress Oxides Gathered Twigs

I had started stamping with Faded Jeans but the colours where turning to mud so I decided to spray a coat of Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative and now I am able to add the Faded Jeans ink perfectly.

Next I trimmed some Kraft cardstock to 2.5 x 3.5 inches and trimmed my background cardstock a little smaller. Then inked around the edges with Distress Oxides Ink Black Soot.

To adhere all my butterflies and quotes I used Helmar Premium Craft Glue. Then added some washi tape.

I needed some dimension so I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere my 3 butterflies.

To finish off the cards I splattered with Dylusions Ink Black Marble. Here is the finished product.
