Important Stuff Journal cover - Farrel Tailor (Challenge Inspiration)

Hello Everyone!!!
Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media art journal cover I created using some amazing TCW products and Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces. My inspiration for this cover is from the Dusty Attic September Mood Board.

To start the background I applied TCW 9001 White Gesso using a dry paint brush. Then to blend the edges a little bit, I used a baby wipe. Once the gesso was dry (which doesn't take long as it's only a light coverage) I then used TCW202s Mini Harlequin stencil along with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste using a silicone brush.

I then dried the modeling paste using my heat gun. Once that was dry I then used some 13arts Water based inks mixed with water in colours - Yellow, Scarlet and Bordeaux. Again used the heat gun to dry and then applied some stamping using black archival ink, Stampers Anonymous stamp and Darkroom Door texture stamp.

Once I was happy with the background I then covered my small doily from Doily #5 with TCW9001 White Gesso and covered the small Fleur de Lis with TCW9015 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Black Licorice

Next I lightly sprinkled some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Shakers - Bavarian Blue and just lightly sprayed with water. I then coloured the cheesecloth with Colour Blast Shimmer Dust - Cobalt and Navy and some water. And now to assemble!!! As you can see I have cut the painted black doily chipboard in half, added the cheesecloth and some art stones. I adhered all my pieces using iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive

Last of all I adhered the Fleur de Lis chipboard along with the black title from Wordpl@y #3 black chipboard in the center.

Life your dream - Cathy Cafun

Hi Dusty Attic Crafters,
Cathy here today sharing my project for the month created with gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard and stencil designs.

"Live Your Dreams"

I was going through all the new Dusty Attic chippie designs and have to say that I am loving the new Mini Tabs.  I was drawn to the Day Dreamer tab from the Mini Tabs #3 and was inspired to create this Shabby Chic/Romantic layout.

To create my background I first coated with Clear Gesso, then applied Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Oxide.  Once dry, I used the Damask #2 Stencil Design with Modeling Paste and finally stamped over my background with Kaisercraft script stamp in a soft grey ink.

To add depth to my layers I cut apart the Floral Corners and Corner Swirl #1 chipboard pieces which I layered with flowers and lace.

The chipboard pieces were altered by coating with gesso, then whilst wet adding embossing powder and heat setting.  I highlighted the embossing with Metallic Pastes in Cornflower Blue and Jade, then added Prills to my flower centres.
The Mini Words #1 chippies were used to create my title and were altered with Lindys Pearl embossing powder, then coating with Champagne Ice Metallic Lustre.

How fabulous are the new Mini Tabs!!  I altered the day dreamer tab by coating with ink, then highlighting the edges with Metallic Pastes in Cornflower Blue and Champagne Ice.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
