Notebook November for Dusty Attic – Dream

Hi Everyone, with it being Notebook November this month at Dusty Attic & having so much fun creating my altered notebook last time, I thought I would give it another go.

Altered Notebook Dusty Attic by Farrel Tailor

To begin with I stenciled the background using TCW781 Scrollwork stencil and TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste.

Dream Mixed Media Notebook by Farrel Tailor

I used Dream Catcher #2, Key to my Heart (smaller heart and key) and Mini ABC Set Upper for this notebook. I covered those pieces with white gesso. I applied Finnabair Paper Texture Paste to the Dream Catcher. Once I had adhered the dream catcher, I adhered the key and heart chipboard and 3 flowers.

Next I covered the all the chipboard and flowers with Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint in Raven Black. Then painted the notebook with black gesso and added art stones to the notebook.

I painted the Melange Art Pebbles and ABC set with Art Alchemy Opal Magic Acrylic Paint in Violet/Green. I also applied this paint to the background and a little on the chipboard and flowers. Then to finish off I applied Art Alchemy Opal Magic Acrylic Paint Rose/Gold to highlight.

Art Journal – Adventure

Hello Everyone! I am up on the TCW blog today with another art journal page. When I started my art journal page, I didn’t really have a clear idea on what I wanted to do but decided to just go with the flow and see how it turned out. I find a lot of the time I over think what I want to achieve and it was nice to just let it go. So with that said, this is what my “let it go” looks like.

I’m not sure about you guys but I have a lot of pages in my art journal where I test new products. I wanted to start covering those pages with new projects and this is how I do it. I start by painting TCW9002 Black Gesso all over the page.

Once the black gesso is dry I then apply 2 different coloured shimmer sprays. Against the black these sprays just “pop”.

I used a heat gun to dry in between both colours. Next I used TCW9014 Iridescent Silver Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW267s Mini Ledger 6×6 stencil. I used a sponge dauber to apply the paint to the page.

Once the paint was dry I then mixed another spray with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste to create a light brown tone.

Next I applied it through TCW454s Mini Specimens 6×6 stencil. I only used the round patterns on the stencil.

I used my heat gun to dry the stencil areas. I love how the paste took on on some of the colours from the sprays. To finish off the page I added some stamped images and splattered with a white spray.

Dream Imagine Create Art Journal Page

Hello my crafty followers!!! I hope you are well. Today I am sharing an art journal page I created using some products by The Crafter’s Workshop and Dylusions Sprays.

farrel.tailor.dream.art.journal.page

I started by applying TCW9002 Black Gesso to my 2 pages of my art journal. I am using the 8×8 Dylusions art journal for this project.

Once I dried the black gesso using my heat tool, I then applied TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste to my TCW727 Flower Dance stencil. I started off with the larger flowers and then used the smaller ones.

After drying with my heat gun again (I heated until the paste formed some bubbles), I applied my sprays. Working light to dark I used the following sprays in order – Colour Blast Australia – Saffron Colour Spray, Dylusions Sprays – Peony Blush, Rose Quartz, Cherry Pie, Calypso Teal, Laidback Lilac, Periwinkle Blue and After Midnight.

It doesn’t take long for the sprays to dry and once they have I then used TCW527 Word Association stencil with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste.

Then to finish it off I used the following sprays on my title – Dylusions Calypso Teal, Laidback Lilac, Periwinkle Blue, Rose Quartz, Peony Blush and Vanilla Custard.

So Much Goodness Mixed Media Layout

Hi there my fellow crafty lovelies!!! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and start to the new year. Today I am sharing with you all my latest layout using some absolutely stunning chipboard by Dusty Attic.

20180102_105139[1]

I started by applying a light coat of white gesso to my chipboard – Branch #3, Doily #10Decorative Frame #2 and Mini Caption #10 . I then used Prima Color Bloom Sprays in Peony, Storm Cloud and Summer Sky. For the Branches I used Dylusions Mushy Peas spray.

 For the background I have used Maja Designs Sofiero – Strolling down the rose path pp. I have to admit this is the first time I have used their papers and I have fallen in love!!! I started by distressing all the around the edges and inking around the edges with Watering Can Archival Ink. Then I added some stenciling using TCW261s Mini Art Is and Light and Fluffly Modeling paste. I tore the corrugated card into a strip and dried brush with white gesso. Once it was dry I then sprayed Color Bloom Peony and Storm Cloud sprays using a small amount of water help blend the colours.

I then used a strong glue to adhere my chipboard, 49 and Market flowers and photo mount. I then used a dry brush to add some white gesso to my flowers along with some Prima Color Bloom Summer Sky spray.

To finish off the layout I mixed some gel medium with some green prills and crystal ice cubes and applied around my flowers.

Merry Christmas Art Journal Page

Hello and Happy Monday!!! Today I am sharing an art journal page I created using some very yummy The Crafter’s Workshop products. If you would like to see how I created this art journal page, there is a process video at the end of the blog.

main

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

I had so much fun creating this and got to use products from our preferred partners Thermoweb that I would have never thought of using. I have now found a new addiction!!! lol  So let’s get started!!!

background

I started by brushing Distress Oxide Inks – Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean & Broken China directly onto my pages in a swiping motion. Then sprayed with some water. Then I added some Black Soot using the same technique and again spritz with some water.

bg2

Next I sprayed Distress Stain Spray – Faded Jeans all over the pages and used my heat tool to dry.

splatter

Next I placed some TCW9012 Shimmery Goodness onto my craft mat and added some water so that I could splatter the background using a small paint brush.

big wreath

Once that was dry, I then used TCW721 Big Wreath stencil along with TCW9024 Kale Smoothie Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and Dylusions Paints Dirty Martini and Fresh Lime for my leaves.

light and fluffy

Next I used TCW717s Ornaments stencil (my favourite Christmas stencil by the way) with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste. I used this paste because I wanted to add dimension to my page for the step.

deco foil adhesive

After I dried the paste with my heat tool, I then used iCraft Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive on sections of my baubles. You need to allow this to dry for about an hour. I did however use my heat tool to speed the process up a little.

foil

I have found a new obsession here…..Transfer Foil!!! I have never used this before and by gosh it is AMAZING!!!! So I used Thermoweb Rebekah Meier Mixed Media Transfer Foils in New Penny, Antique Pearl, Patina and Old Gold. I also used Thermoweb Gina K Designs Fancy Foil – Turquoise Sea

modeling paste

Next I used the TCW719s Christmas Tree with TCW9009 Black Modeling Paste to stencil Merry Christmas onto my page. I also used a Uni Chalk Marker in white to draw the string for my baubles.

distress crayon

I wanted to add a little bit more to my baubles so here I am using some Distress Crayons – Tarnished Brass, Antiqued Bronze and Brushed Pewter and I’m just using my finger to rub it in. I have also used Dina Wakley’s Scribble Sticks – Black to add some shadowing around my baubles and blended it with a wet paint brush.

The last step I decided to add some sparkle to my leaves so I painted some Kindy Glitz – Crystalina. I used a paint brush because I only wanted a light sparkle.
