Sweet Memories – Farrel Tailor –

Hello there Dusty Attic Fans!!! Farrel here to share with you another mixed media altered frame for my last 2018 project.
Here is Australia we aren’t so lucky to have a white Christmas as it is summer here but I really wanted to create something with the white Christmas feel and remembered we visited the snow in 2 years ago and thought PERFECT!! So this is what I created.
Altered Frame - Dusty Attic Farrel Tailor
The frame I used is a floating frame from Kmart. I covered the glass with with some patterned paper and splattered it with gold and blue spray.
For the frame itself I used a stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop TCW742s and TCW9005 modeling paste. I also used Finnabair’s Stone Effect Paste. Then used paints to create the colours of wood lightly dusted with snow. The paint I used was Finnabair Dark Chocolate Impasto paint and Paper Artsy Chalk Acrylic Paints – Mermaid, Mud Splat and Inky Pool.

I used a small piece of Corrugated Cardstock and painted it with white gesso. I then sprayed my cheesecloth piece with 13 Arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk Ultramarine and Pastel Cobalt.

I used Stampendous Aged Marine Embossing Enamel on my Small String Frame chipboard. And painted my plastic foliage with white gesso.

The Deer Head chipboard I applied a light coverage of the stone effect paste and then painted it with white gesso and Chalk Ultramarine spray. I heat embossed the cosmic swirl chipboard with Range Gold Tinsel embossing powder.

To finish off the frame I added some micro beads and crystals and a sticker from Tim Holtz small talk sticker book and last but not least Sweet Memories sentiment from Wordpl@y #3 Black.

    I love this idea and would like to do something similar for my son and his dog. What size is the frame you used?
