I used Christmas Day Collection for my project and can I just say for someone who doesn’t usually do Christmas projects I had so much fun with this range. Soo…. my project is an altered vinyl record that I bought at a market recently.

Embrace The Inner Queen Canvas – Dusty Attic

Hi there my lovelies!!!!

Recently I was shown the world of Powertex. ( A textile hardener) And straight away I loved it and thought I would share my very first project using Powertex and Dusty Attic. I would just like to add that I barely broke the surface in learning about this form of mixed media but hey we all have to start somewhere!!!

Embrace your inner queen by Farrel Tailor

I used LOTS of different mixed media projects to create this canvas including Finnabair Texture Paste (Metal Effect & Patina Effect), Finnabair Impasto Paint, Metallique Acrylic Paint, The Crafter’s Workshop stencils, Finnabair Art Stones and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Squirts just to name a few.

The flowers I used are a mixture of Prima, Green Tara Flowers and some fabric ones I got years ago. I just love how this medium makes everything hard and this helps give texture.

Make Art – Art Journal Page for Fineline Applicator Australia

Hello and happy Friday to you all!!! Recently I met with the lovely team from Fineline Applicator Aus and I fell in love with their applicators. So today I am sharing an art journal page.

I had so much fun creating this page. I started with TCW801 Skylight 12×12 stencil, I used a pencil to trace and then went over with a white gel pen. I then put some TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint into the Fine Tip Applicator with a little bit of water just enough so that it’s not so thick. Let the doodling begin!!!

I then used the standard tip applicator with some TCW9002 Black Gesso and used it to draw some lines around the heart. For the heart I used TCW825 Love Frame stencil 6×6 with some acrylic paint.

I also used the the Black Gesso applicator to go around the title of the page. The stencil I used for this was TCW795 Rustic Signs

Here is a quick video showing how easy it is to these applicators

I have linked the applicators used to the Fineline Applicators website. Thanks for dropping by and I shall be back with more projects soon.

44043469_10216517093781044_805334036179320832_o

So for my inspiration I used the colours of the mood board. I also used the picture as well…. when I see this photo I think of how gorgeous the sunset is and what would be magical during a sunset? A hot air balloon ride!!! So here is what I created with all that in mind.Journey Shadow Box By Farrel Tailor

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
