One of a Kind Tag – Art Anthology

Hi there my crafty followers, today I am up on the Art Anthology Blog with this Mixed Media tag. There is a process video located at the end of the blog so please feel free to click on it to watch me in action xx.

I started my tag by using Stone Effects – Bone with Art Nuveau stencil. After drying with my heat tool, I then added white gesso and also applied some crackled paste.

Once dry and all my elements on the tag have been adhered and covered with white gesso, I then applied Colorations Color Spray – Siesta Key. Next I used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panache on the background and used a little bit of water to help the ink spread around the tag.

 

After the ink has dried, I then spray Colorations Color Spray Peacock Feathers to create some depth to the tag. To break up some of the blue on the tag, I then used Rust Texture Set on some of the elements on the tag.

 

After adhering my chipboard butterfly, I then added Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent. Then to finish off the tag, I added the gold paste from Rust Texture Set to highlight.

Sweet Memories Photo Frame for Dusty Attic

Hello there everyone!!! Today I am sharing my first project for the month for Dusty Attic. Here in Australia we have just begun spring and I wanted to create something that shows that celebrates that.

Sweet Memories Altered Frame by Farrel Tailor

The frame I used is a MDF Kaisercraft frame. I coated the frame and all chipboard pieces with white gesso. Next I stenciled all the way around the frame using modeling paste and Mandala stencil. Once all dry, I then used Jade Impasto paint to cover the frame and then with my finger applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to highlight the stencil.

I also used the a gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to colour the chipboard title. For the flourish chipboard, I left the bottom layer white and heat embossing the top layer with gold embossing powder. I adhered the layers together and then cut in the middle to make 2 pieces.

Then I arranged the chipboard and flowers to the bottom of my frame. I used micro beads and some fibres to add some texture then added a highlight with the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse on the flowers.

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

Colorations Spray – Siesta Key, Peacock Feathers, Indigo

Upcycled Mixed Media Tins

Hello there my lovelies!! Today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog and I decided to something a little bright and fun and useful at the same time. So I decided to give a coffee container and a Pringles tin a face lift. I also have a video at the end of the blog so please feel free to watch it all happen before your very eyes.

To begin my projects, I applied 2 coats of TCW9001 White Gesso with a paint brush. I dried between coats with my heat tool.

Next I applied a range of acrylic paints to the 2 containers and used my heat tool to dry

For the small coffee container I used TCW827 Spring Medallion in the 6×6 and applied TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with a make up sponge.

For the tall tin I used TCW810 Blooming Garden stencil in the 6×6 along with TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and again used a make up sponge. To finish it off, I used a purple and pink coloured acrylic paint to highlight some of the stencil.

Thanks for dropping and I will be back soon with another project xx
