Mixed Media Gift Box – The Crafter’s Workshop

Hello there my wonderful followers!!! Today is my turn up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog.

With Mother’s Day only a few days away, I wanted to create a small gift box using some of TCW’s amazing products. There is also a video which will be at the end of the blog so please feel free to check it out xx

To start off I covered the whole small box with TCW9002 Black Gesso, then used my heat tool to dry.

Then I used TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and TCW853s Circle Tile stencil and stenciled over the entire lid of the box. I used my heat gun to dry the paste and I LOVE how this paste puffs up when heated. It reminds of clouds.

Next I used a strong mixed media glue to adhere the resin moulds I made and also added some art stones for extra texture. Then I covered the box again with TCW9002 Black Gesso.

Once dry I then used some Art Alchemy Waxes to add the colouring to the box. To finish it off I used some Glass Glitter around the frame and face.

Thanks for popping in and I hope I have inspired you to create your own little gift box. I will be back real soon with another project xx

This month I focused my attention to the colours of the mood board and the flowers. This is what I created…

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.

I painted the back of the light globe with Art Alchemy Opal Magic paint and added some fibres, art stones and micro beads to finish it off.

My Happy Place Art Journal Page for TCW

Hello there my lovelies!!!! I am so glad to be back in the swing of things after having 2 months away recovering. I have missed creating and sharing my work with you all. So today I am sharing an art journal page I created for The Crafter’s Workshop using one of my favourite stencils from the new winter 2019 release!!! There is also a video at the end of the blog.

To begin with I trimmed some watercolour paper to fit my square Dylusions art journal. Then used Distress Oxide Sprays – Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Cracked Pistachio. I used my heat tool to dry in between colours and also sprayed some water to help the spray move around on my paper.

Next I sprayed Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Spray onto TCW267 Ledger. Then I sprayed some water onto the stencil, flipped it over and flicked the remaining spray all over my paper.

I dried my paper with my heat tool, then using the same stencil and sponge dauber, I applied Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain.

Next I used TCW854 Layered Wallpaper and TCW9009 Black Modeling Paste to the corners of my page.

Once it dry, I then stamped Coffee Archival Ink and Darkroom Door Stamp Numbers Border. I also stamped another number stamp around the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.

I used Distress Oxide inks and sprays Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Vintage Photo to stamp Darkroom Door’s Butterfly stamp. I wrapped some gold and white twine around the page, adhered the butterflies and finished off with some Tim Holtz stickers.

Below is the process video.

Thanks for dropping and I can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon

Believe In Daydreams Mixed Media Tag

Hi Everyone Farrel here and today I am sharing another mixed media tag with you all. I have process shot so sit back and relax while to take you through on how I created this.

mixed media tag by farrel tailor

I had so much fun creating this tag, I have only recently discovered my new found love when I created the Christmas Tag last month and I have decided to create tags for everything now!!! lol

TCW809.jpg

To start of I used the Tim Holtz large Tag Die cut out my chipboard tag. I then covered the tag using some patterned paper I found in my stash. I applied a light coverage of Gel Matte Medium (TCW) and once dried I then used TCW804 Mesh Blocks stencil with some sand texture paste.

Once the paste was dry, I then added some stamping using Black Archival Ink and a Finnabair stamp.

Then I used the 3 LSG magicals in the picture to build up my background colours. I love how the sand texture paste looks with these colours added to it.

Next I coated my Dusty Attic chipboard and a metal flower with white gesso. I did cut the Industrial Corner and the Cyclone Wire to fit the tag.

I then decided to use Finnabair’s Rust Effect Paste on the chipboard pieces and the metal flower. I also used Sepia Archival Ink to cover the ticket chipboard.

I used TCW Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint on the Prima Flowers and once all the pieces were adhered, I then added some Sisal, Mica Flakes and some beads.

Where There Is Love Art Journal – TCW

Hello Hello Hello!!!! Today I am sharing my latest The Crafter’s Workshop DT art journal page. This page is great if you want to create but don’t have a lot of time to do so. So let me show you how it was done.

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

I started by painting TCW9002 Black Gesso as a border around the edges of my small art journal page. I then trimmed down a page from an old book and started to add some colour. I love the effect a rubber brayer gives on paper so I used that with Dylusions Paints in Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange and Peony Blush.

Using those same colours, I used a make up sponge to TCW687s Positivity stencil. I used the triangles and the flower images of the stencil. I also used TCW9002 Black Gesso for a border.

Next I used TCW778 Free Swirl and TCW9019 Candy Apple Red Heavy Body Acrylic Paint to cover the the whole page.

Next I stamped some hearts and my sentiment onto white cardstock and used a baby wipe to add colour to the hearts. I used the same 3 paint colours for this as I did for the background.

Then to finish it off I used a black and white paint pen to draw a border around the edges.

Christmas Card and Tag – The Crafter’s Workshop

Hi there my lovelies!!!! Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media Christmas card and tag I created for The Crafter’s Workshop. For those who know me, I am not a card maker but thought it might be nice for me do something a little different.

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

I will start my tutorial off with the card. I used a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card as the base and applied my Emboss It Dabber to TCW720 Snowflakes 6×6 stencil. Then used white embossing powder to cover the whole area and heat set with my heat gun.

Then I sprayed 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk light blue and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Delphinium Turquoise spray all over the card.

Next I used a separate piece of cardstock and applied TCW9049 Tacky When Dry Gel Medium through TCW717 Ornaments 6×6 stencil. I used my heat gun to make the drying process faster then rubbed some mixed media transfer foil over the top.

I then cut out the ornaments and used foam tape to mount them onto the card. I also adhered some ribbon to the top and used a sticker for my sentiment. To finish off the card, I used Couture Creations Glitzin’ Glamour in Antique Silver.

Now for the tag, I used a precut tag in white and smooshed Distress Inks Broken China and Stormy Sky all over the tag. Then did the same again but with Distress Oxides Ink Weathered Wood.

Once the inks had dried, I then used  TCW720 Snowflakes 6×6 stencil and applied TCW9026 Champagne Gold modeling paste. I used my heat gun to dry the paste, letting it bubble a little.

I used some stamps, snowflake punches, glitter and rhinestones to add some texture. To colour the stamped image, I used the Distress Inks Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood to make a grey/green colour and applied with an aqua pen.

Thanks for dropping by and I will back again soon with my next project xx
