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.

Memories Made Mixed Media Layout

Hello Everyone!!! Today I am sharing a layout I created for The Crafter’s Workshop and Dusty Attic.

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

I started by sealing my 12×12 watercolor cardstock with TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium using my 2″ silicone brush and applying TCW9001 White Gesso to the edges of my photo. Once the edges were dry I then used Therm O Web Rebekah Meier Designs Mixed Media Foam Sheets to add dimension to the back of my photo.

Next I used TCW541s Mini Believe Script stencil and TCW9008 Clear Modeling Paste in 3 sections of the cardstock.

Once I dried the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some magical shakers to the background staying in the stenciled area.

Next I used TCW454s Mini Specimens stencil and Distress Oxide ink pad – Black Soot. But because of the all the texture on the cardstock, I decided to change to TCW9015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

For the next step I used TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and TCW456s Mini Sketch Grid. I used a make up sponge to apply the paint to the layout.

Now for the chipboard, I used a swiping motion to apply TCW9001 White Gesso. I used this method because I didn’t want the gesso to go into the grooves of the chipboard. Then I used Magical Shakers – Guten Tag Teal to add color to the chipboard using a paint brush.

For the Geometric Panel chipboard, I painted them with TCW90015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and used my heat tool to dry.

And to finish off the layout, I adhered all my pieces using Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue.

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.
