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

Discover Mixed Media Tag for Dusty Attic

Hey Hey my lovelies!!! Today is my turn on the Dusty Attic blog and today I  am sharing my August mood board challenge project. 44035713_10216517096341108_154288878973353984_o

For my inspiration I used the picture and the some of the colours. When I look at this picture it makes me think of travelling somewhere tropical so my tag is just that….. travelling and discovering.

Discover Mixed Media Tag by Farrel Tailor

I covered the 2 tags with Tim Holtz Postale tissue wrap and inked them with Vintage Photo Distress Archival Ink. Then applied a white crackle paste. Once dry, I then added some blue ink to highlight the crackle. I used the same ink to colour the resin stars and highlighted with some bronze wax.

I covered the Industrial Balloon and Nautical Frame chipboard with Art Anthology Rust Effect Paste. Then I adhere paper to the back of the chipboard from Stamperia – Around The World Range. I also added some of the blue ink to the paper to match the background of the tag.

I heat embossed the Diamond Panel with Stampendous Marine Embossing Enamel and trimmed to fit the tag.

I inked the Geo Tribal Arrow with Vintage Photo Archival Ink and covered with Dusty Attic Clear Crackle Varnish. I heat embossed the Roman Numerals with a bronze embossing powder. For the Discover title, I used black embossing powder and then applied a light coat of orange metallic acrylic paint.

To finish off I added art stones and micro beads.

A Grateful Heart Art Journal Page for The Crafter’s Workshop

Hi there my lovelies!!! Well today is my last day as a design team member for The Crafter’s Workshop. It has been an amazing 2 years and I feel so humbled to have been apart of such an amazing team and to represent a fabulous company.

Today’s project is an art journal page I created using the quote as my inspiration “Start each day with a grateful heart” and of course I chose my 3 favourite of all time stencils to use.

The video below has all the products I used in the subtitles but if you would like to see step by step process pictures just click here which will take you to The Crafter’s Workshop’s Blog.

Thank you to everyone who has commented or liked my projects over the last 2 years. I also would like to say a huge thank you to The Crafter’s Workshop for having me on their team….. it really has been a blast and I am forever grateful.

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

Dusty Attic July Mood Board Challenge – Journey Layout

Wow! Can you believe we are now in JULY?!! I think this year has just flown by….. anyway new month means new mood board challenge at Dusty Attic. So today I am sharing my take on the challenge. I decided to create a layout using a photo of Dwayne and I on the cruise. This layout’s style is very different to my usual style but I wanted to go back to basics.

43952991_10216517094701067_5050524319076057088_o

So let’s get started…..

For the papers I have used 7 Dots Studio’s Air Mail range, which was perfect for the chippy that I used.  I also used their tags, stickers and die cuts. I inked all the edges of my paper, dies and stickers using Distress Archival ink in Vintage photo. I added some stamp stitching around the edges of my background paper using Faded Jeans Distress Archival ink.

Journey by Farrel Tailor

For the Compass Rose chipboard I applied some white gesso and then sprayed it with Distress Oxide Sprays – Cracked Pistachio, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain to give a patina type look.

Journey Layout by Farrel Tailor

The Travel Border chipboard I applied white gesso again and then using a foam blending tool applied Faded Jeans and Barn Door Distress Archival Ink.

Journey Dusty Attic Layout by Farrel Tailor

For the Blueprint Journey chipboard I also covered with white gesso and then using Distress Archival ink pad – Spiced Marmalade I swiped the ink pad over the chipboard until it was covered. To finish the layout I splattered using Faded Jeans Distress Stain Spray.
