Dreamer of Dreams by Farrel Tailor

Happy New Year Everyone!!!! Farrel here to share with you all an altered frame I created using lots of Art Anthology mixed media goodies!!!

Dreamer of Dreams Frame by Farrel Tailor

I stared by painting my Dusty Attic chipboard frame with white gesso, then used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panche on the base and Sorbet Dimensional Paint – Vegas Gold on the top layer.

Next I tore a piece of paper from an old book and sprayed it with Colorations Sprays – Warm and Sandcastle. I then adhered this piece to the back of the chipboard frame.


I stamped a mixture of butterflies onto some white cardstock (prima stamps) and used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panche and Colorations sprays – Plush, Peacock Feathers and Siesta Keys to colour the butterflies.


I splattered with with some black gesso and adhere the chipboard frame to some black cardstock. I removed the glass from the my store bough frame before adhering my chipboard frame. I finished off by adding one of Tim Holtz Quote Chips to the center.

Class & a Little Sass


blog hop

Hey! It’s Robin Redd (a.k.a. RockinReddRobin!) I’m here to show you a canvas I painted, collaged and everything in between!  Also, I want to welcome you to the 1st day of the Art Anthology/Basically Bare/May Arts Ribbon Project Inspiration Blog Hop.  We’ve joined forces this week to offer you lots of inspiration using products from Art Anthology, Basically Bare, and May Arts Ribbon.


I started by covering the canvas with Mayan Gold Velvet Paint. Once it was dry, I mixed Mayan Gold with water and applied the paint along one edge. I wanted the paint to drip down, so I sprayed it with more water. Look at it drip, now!


I did the same technique using Desire Velvet Paint, applying along another edge, spraying it with water to make it drip.


Then one more time with Cotton Candy Velvet Paint along, yet another, edge of the canvas.


Next, I collaged some papers, randomly on the dried canvas.


To top it off, I stamped with bubble wrap and Leaf, Aloha, Buttercream and Guava paints to blend in the collage papers into the painted canvas.


I cut strips of May Arts 5/8″ Crochet Ribbon into 5” strips, topped each one with a point and sprayed them with both Sandcastle and Cinnamon Toast Colorations spray. I used Frost Sorbet Clear Coats to adhere the ribbon to the canvas. It acts like a glue while adding a hint of sparkle to your project.


I sketched the girl with Faber-Castel Pitt pens and painted her in with more Art Anthology paints.


I used May Arts natural jute to tie a rope to the fence and green May Arts ribbon to anchor the scene.


The title was stamped using an alphabet stamps and Memento Stamp Pad. To make the letters pop more, I went over it with my Scarlet Lime Journal Pen.

I hope I have inspired you to create something today.
