Let It Snow Altered Frame Dusty Attic

Hey there Everyone, today I am sharing my last 2018 project for Dusty Attic.

 I really wanted to create something with the white Christmas feel unfortunately here is Australia we don’t get the joy of having snow at Christmas time. Then I remembered we visited the snow in 2 years ago and thought PERFECT!! So this is what I created.

Altered Frame - Dusty Attic Farrel Tailor

The frame I used is a floating frame from Kmart. I covered the glass with with some patterned paper and splattered it with gold and blue spray.

For the frame itself I used a stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop TCW742s and TCW9005 modeling paste. I also used Finnabair’s Stone Effect Paste. Then used paints to create the colours of wood lightly dusted with snow. The paint I used was Finnabair Dark Chocolate Impasto paint and Paper Artsy Chalk Acrylic Paints – Mermaid, Mud Splat and Inky Pool.

I used a small piece of Corrugated Cardstock and painted it with white gesso. I then sprayed my cheesecloth piece with 13 Arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk Ultramarine and Pastel Cobalt.

I used Stampendous Aged Marine Embossing Enamel on my Small String Frame chipboard. And painted my plastic foliage with white gesso.

The Deer Head chipboard I applied a light coverage of the stone effect paste and then painted it with white gesso and Chalk Ultramarine spray. I heat embossed the cosmic swirl chipboard with Range Gold Tinsel embossing powder.

To finish off the frame I added some micro beads and crystals and a sticker from Tim Holtz small talk sticker book and last but not least Sweet Memories sentiment from Wordpl@y #3 Black.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
