Create Art – Art Anthology

Hey there everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. Well today I am sharing my very first design team member creation for Art Anthology. I have a process video at the end of the blog so feel free to check it out xx

  1. To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.

2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.

3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.

4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.

Here is some more pictures of the finished page

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.

Be Happy Layout for Dusty Attic

Hello there my creative friends!!! It’s that time again for another DT post for The Dusty Attic and today I get to share a layout I created as a class on a crafting cruise I was on a few months ago.

Be Happy Layout by Farrel Tailor

The papers I used are Dear Diary by Mintay and the flowers are from Prima Marketing Inc. The flowers I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Totally 80’s. I stamped the background using a prima text stamp.

Be Happy Dusty Attic Layout

I covered the clock, butterfly, script, doily and “sweet memories” with white gesso and then used the Totally 80’s magical to add colour. For the leaves, roman numerals and “Be Happy” chipboard, I left them raw and applied the magical directly onto them. I loved how the sparkle of the magical just intensified doing it this way.

I inked around the edges of the clock face with Black Soot ink and added some splatters using the magicals.

My Happy Place Art Journal Page for TCW

Hello there my lovelies!!!! I am so glad to be back in the swing of things after having 2 months away recovering. I have missed creating and sharing my work with you all. So today I am sharing an art journal page I created for The Crafter’s Workshop using one of my favourite stencils from the new winter 2019 release!!! There is also a video at the end of the blog.

To begin with I trimmed some watercolour paper to fit my square Dylusions art journal. Then used Distress Oxide Sprays – Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Cracked Pistachio. I used my heat tool to dry in between colours and also sprayed some water to help the spray move around on my paper.

Next I sprayed Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Spray onto TCW267 Ledger. Then I sprayed some water onto the stencil, flipped it over and flicked the remaining spray all over my paper.

I dried my paper with my heat tool, then using the same stencil and sponge dauber, I applied Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain.

Next I used TCW854 Layered Wallpaper and TCW9009 Black Modeling Paste to the corners of my page.

Once it dry, I then stamped Coffee Archival Ink and Darkroom Door Stamp Numbers Border. I also stamped another number stamp around the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.

I used Distress Oxide inks and sprays Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Vintage Photo to stamp Darkroom Door’s Butterfly stamp. I wrapped some gold and white twine around the page, adhered the butterflies and finished off with some Tim Holtz stickers.

Below is the process video.

Thanks for dropping and I can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon
