Art Journal Cover

Hello Everyone!!!

Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media art journal cover I created using some amazing TCW products and Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces. My inspiration for this cover is from the Dusty Attic September Mood Board.

To start the background I applied TCW 9001 White Gesso using a dry paint brush. Then to blend the edges a little bit, I used a baby wipe. Once the gesso was dry (which doesn’t take long as it’s only a light coverage) I then used TCW202s Mini Harlequin stencil along with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste using a silicone brush.

I then dried the modeling paste using my heat gun. Once that was dry I then used some 13arts Water based inks mixed with water in colours – Yellow, Scarlet and Bordeaux. Again used the heat gun to dry and then applied some stamping using black archival ink, Stampers Anonymous stamp and Darkroom Door texture stamp.

Once I was happy with the background I then covered my small doily from Doily #5 with TCW9001 White Gesso and covered the small Fleur de Lis with TCW9015 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Black Licorice

Next I lightly sprinkled some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Bavarian Blue and just lightly sprayed with water. I then coloured the cheesecloth with Colour Blast Shimmer Dust – Cobalt and Navy and some water. And now to assemble!!! As you can see I have cut the painted black doily chipboard in half, added the cheesecloth and some art stones. I adhered all my pieces using iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive

Last of all I adhered the Fleur de Lis chipboard along with the black title from Wordpl@y #3 black chipboard in the center.

Adventure Mixed Media Layout

Hello Everyone!!! I’m back today to share with you all a mixed media layout I created for The Crafter’s Workshop using one of my favourite stencils from the new 2017 Summer range….TCW744 Wanderlust.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I started my layout with the dabbing technique using a piece of old plastic packaging, water and Distress Oxides in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Broken China. I used my heat gun to dry the inks in between each colour.

Once I was happy with the background of my layout, I then used TCW744 Wanderlust with Dylusions Black Marble spray. I did use washi tape to tape off the areas I didn’t want the spray to come through. I then decided that the colour wasn’t as bold as what I had expected so I used a make up sponge to apply TCW9015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Paint….much better!!!

The next step I used TCW9008 Clear Modeling Paste and mixed a small amount of Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Bavarian Blue to create my own paste to put through the 6×6 Wanderlust stencil. I used the small one as I didn’t want the title of my layout to be too big as my photo was trimmed down.

I then set my layout aside to dry and started to work on my chipboard. I covered my chipboard using a make up sponge and TCW9003 Gold Gesso. I then used a paint brush to water down TCW 9001 White Gesso and TCW9021 Blueberry Pie Heavy Body Paint and splattered onto my chipboard. I used my heat gun to dry and then cut into 2 pieces using scissors.

Gold and white Gesso

I used TCW 9001 White Gesso to brush around my photo very lightly using my index finger and then once it was dry I used iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive to adhere my chipboard pieces and cheese cloth and photo to my layout.

To finish it off I then splattered some Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber using a little bit of water a small paint brush.

A Dream is a Wish Art Journal Page – TCW DT

I am super excited to be sharing with you all my first creation using some amazing stencils and TCW mixed media products. There is also a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see how I created my art journal page.stenciled-art-journal-farrel-tailor

*The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.*

I started by building my background, I stamped onto some tissue paper using black archival ink and the Darkroom Door stamp – Measuring Tape, then adhered to my page using TCW9011 Clear Matte Gel Medium.

Once it was dry, I then blended Heavy Body Paints in TCW9017 Lemon Custard, TCW9018 Orange Slice and TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet using a make up sponge I bought from one of my local cheap shops. These paints are such a dream to use and dry very quickly which is always a positive!!

Next I used the TCW735 6×6 Lacy Tiles stencil and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Paint. I did originally want to only use parts of the stencil but I ended up falling in love with this design and decided to fill in the gaps with the stencil.

Once the background was dry, I then used TCW9009 Black Modeling Paste to stencil through the TCW726 6×6 Onion Blossoms stencil. This paste is amazing!!! It’s so thick and but not too heavy on the page.

To finish off the page I added some lines on the onion blossoms using a white paint pen and added a title using some stickers.

Together Mixed Media Layout – Colour Blast Australia DT

Good Morning my crafty Peeps!!! Today it’s my turn over on the Colour Blast Blog and I am sharing my latest scrapbooking layout using Colour Shimmer Dusts and Colour Sprays.

I was trying to figure out what I could create for my DT project and I thought why not challenge myself by using colours I struggle with…..ha ha I know crazy right? But I find sometimes if I’m in a little bit of creators block this helps get the creative juices flowing.

So here is my layout.

Hopefully this has inspired you to create this weekend and until next time – keep creating!!!
