For my background, I applied some TCW9001 white gesso to a chipboard disc along with some stamping, I used a Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set with black Versafine. I then added some crackle medium through TCW790 Micro Bricks stencil.

I then started building my background colour. I started off with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Squirts – Emerald Eh? Once it was dry I then applied Starburst Squirts – Loonie Toonie Teal.

I added Art Alchemy Wax – Firebird onto the stenciled area but thought it needed a little bit more orange so I mixed white gesso, water and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Oktoberfest Orange and splattered onto the disc.

I also used Tim Holtz paper dolls, small talk sticker sheets and vintage design tape.

Spread Your Wings Art Journal Page

Happy Thursday Everyone!! Today I am sharing my newest art journal page for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love how this page turned out, so bright and fun.

 

 

Let’s get to the tutorial!! To be begin, I used a page from an old dictionary and tore that page into strips. I used TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte to adhere to my art journal page.

Once the medium is dry, I then used a paint brush to apply some acrylic chalk paint.

Next I used TCW836 Texture Love stencil with TCW9001 White Gesso and acrylic paint to randomly add some patterns to my art journal. I used a sponge to apply the paint.

The next stencil I used was TCW832 Script Words

I used TCW9001 White Gesso and stamped with a lid to create some circles. Then used my spatula to create a line pattern.

I used archival ink and some different stamps to add more texture to the background.

I then decided to add some more stamped images. I used Distress Crayons to colour the images and to add shading. Here you can see I am using an aqua pen (water pen) to blend the crayon.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed my tutorial xx

Create Canvas by Farrel Tailor

I stenciled the background of the canvas with Ranger Crackle Medium and a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop TCW833 Fantastical . Then I used Purple and Blue Chalk Spray by 13Arts. I also added a little bit of stamping to the stenciled area.

I covered all the chipboard with TCW9001 white gesso and then cut both frames in half. Once all adhere to the canvas, I used Ken Oliver colour burst powders on the chipboard as well as the 13ARts sprays.

The Best Thing to Hold Mixed Media layout for TCW

Hello there everyone!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop bog, and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created to teach on a crafting cruise I recently just got home from. So let me show you how I created this layout.

To begin with I lightly coated my patterned cardstock with TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte and once dried I then applied TCW9001 White Gesso in a diamond shape using my spatula. Then I stamped a text stamp using versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Industrial Chic to add colour to my background. I used a small paint brush and water for this which I find gives me more control.

Next I used TCW202s Harlequin stencil with Ranger Crackle Medium. I used a heat tool to dry and the added some stamping using black archival ink. I also added some splattering to the background using water and white gesso.

Using the same 3 colours above, I smoosh 4 cards that I cut from the some pattern cardstock into the magicals. This creates a grungy type feel. I then distress the edges and create a photo mount cluster for my photo.

Next I applied TCW9001 White Gesso to the paper straws and Dusty Attic Chipboard. I then painted the chipboard with TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I also used this paint to splatter the background and to paint onto the back of the Prima Melange Art Pebbles.

For the paper straws, I painted the Steampunk Sepia magical onto it and then cut to size. I also added the left over magical mix to the flowers. Then I adhered all the layers onto the cardstock and added some beads to finish off the layout.

Here are some close ups of the layout.

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon with another project

Picture Perfect Mixed Media Layout – The Crafter’s Workshop DT

Happy Thursday my lovelies!!!

Today I am back with another video but this time I created a scrapbook layout using some pretty cool products. So sit back, relax and I hope you enjoy both my step by step tutorial and video tutorial which is at the end of the blog xx

I started with some white cardstock and tore some strips of Tim Holtz Tissue Paper, then applied them to the cardstock using TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte. I used my heat tool to dry once I was happy.

Next I applied some crackle medium around the edges of the tissue paper. Once dry I then used Distress Oxide Sprays in Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain and Fossilized Amber to build my background. I used a paint brush to move the sprays around the page until I was happy and made sure to dry in between colours.

I love using this stamp by Darkroom Door – Number Border, it is perfect for the boy layouts. I stamped it randomly with black archival ink.

The next step I wanted to add some more texture so using TCW835 Plaid Fringe stencil in the 6×6, I used a bristle brush to apply Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I then used TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste and TCW737 Love Sonnet 6×6 stencil just to add a little “Pop” to my layout.

I inked the edges of some corrugated cardstock using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and created some tags using some patterned cardstock from my stash. For the chipboard title, I applied some TCW9001 White Gesso and then used Distress Oxide Ink to colour it. I used the same 3 colours as the sprays.

To finish off the layout I inked around the edges of the cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and added some splatters.
