Journey Mixed Media Layout

Happy Friday! I have another mixed media layout to share with you. I really got my hands dirty on this one… I had a few mishaps along the way, but nothing I couldn’t fix… The colors are sooooo vibrant!

To begin, I coated white cardstock with the Dazzle Sorbet Paint. Then I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time. Once the paint was dry, I used the Bits of Grunge stencil and the Sandstone Stone Effects Dimensional Medium to create sand puddles for my background. When this stuff is dry, it totally looks like sand! ūüôā SO NEAT!

Initially, I was going to create some numbers in the background with the Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint and a few stars using the Red Velvet, but the paint smeared… so I decided to mess it up…make it a bit grunge to cover my mistakes. It worked…


Here is a closer look at the sand puddles. Soooo neat. You have to see it in person to fully appreciate this medium.

I painted a piece of white cardstock using the Red Velvet Sorbet Paint to create a fun mat for the strip of photos.

Then I looked through my stash for a few embellishments to add to add dimension.

Products Used:

Colorations Sprays: Raider, Sandcastle

Stone Effects Dimensional Medium: Sandstone

Sorbet Dimensional Medium Paint: Mermaid, Red Velvet, Dazzle

Velvet Dimensional Paint: Tuxedo

Stencil: Bits of Grunge 6×9

Paradise Found Mixed Media Layout by Farrel Tailor

Hi there AA fans, Farrel here today to share my newest project. I used a mixture of Colorations Sprays, Minx Shimmering Inks, Velvet Dimensional Paint and stencils. I also have a process video which will be located at the end of the blog. So sit back, relax and let me show you how I created my layout xx.

  1. To begin with I applied a thin coat of clear gesso to my patterned paper. Why do I do this you may ask? It is to seal the paper so that I can add my mediums to the paper without it buckling. Once dry I then using AA’s stencil Keyhole and Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie.

2. After drying the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some clear crackle medium and dried again. I then sprayed the crackled area with water and using a paint brush I applied Siesta Key and Granny Smith Colorations Sprays.

3. I sprayed my flowers with water and then sprayed Colorations Spray – Sandcastle. I used my heat tool to dry the flowers.

4. I painted the flowers with Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent using a paint brush. I also painted my chipboard title with the same ink.

5. I then adhered all my pieces to the layout along with mini prillz and art stones. And finished the layout off with some stamping.

I used these products on my project:

Stencil – Keyhole

Colorations Sprays – Siesta Key, Granny Smith, Sandcastle

Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent

Velvet Dimensional Paint – Brownie

Spooky Shadow Box by Farrel Tailor

Hi there everyone, Farrel here today to share with you all my first Halloween Project.

  1. I painted all my chipboard pieces and shadowbox with black gesso. I then applied Sandstone Stone Effects using a palette knife to the box and Gargoyles.

2.  I then used Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint to add highlights to the chipboard pieces.

3. Next I dry brushed onto the shadowbox using Cotton Velvet Dimensional Paint.

4.¬† I painted my potion bottles using Sorbet Dimensional Paint in Black Leather Jacket…. I LOVE this colour.

5. The bottles needed some more texture as they got lost in the box so I added some¬†Sandstone Stone Effects but I made sure I didn’t cover the pieces.

6. Next I painted some of the bottles with Kenyan Copper Sorbet Dimensional Paint

7. Finally before adhering everything together, I used Peacock Feathers Colorations Spray to colour the other potion bottles and used the left over spray on my desk to dry brush on the shadow box.
