The Best Days by Farrel Tailor

Posted by Farrel Tailor on

Good Morning Sassy Lovers!! Today is my last DT post and I would just like start off by thanking Olga for asking me to join her amazing team... what started out being for only 3 months ended up lasting 9 months and I have truly enjoyed every minute of it. And I would also like to thank all the Sassy Fans that have followed me over the last 9 months - you're the best!!

So let me show you what I created and how I went about it....

main image

I started by cutting 7 strips of Glitz Design pp - Sunshine in my Soul - Stripe and adhered the 7 strips onto to Glitz Design - Sunshine in my Soul - Suns.


I then used white gesso with my 1" Silicone Brush to highlight the paper cluster and to also seal before I added the sprays. I also used my finger to lightly rub white gesso around the edges of my photo.


Once dry I then started to apply my colours to the background. Using a wet paint brush I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mists - Pastel Cobalt, then Chalk Ultramarine and to finish I used Chalk Indigo. Making sure I dried between colours.



And it wouldn't be me with some splattering!! I used all 3 blues for the splatters.


Next I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Caramel just to highlight some areas and then added some builders tape for a little bit of texture. (I bought this tape from my local hardware store)


Now for the photo mount - I used some cardboard from a packing box and ripped the first layer off. I then rubbed white gesso around the edges and using a wet brush I applied a small amount of 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk Indigo.



I then added some stickers from Pinkfresh Studio - Escape the Ordinary range and doodled around the stickers and the background paper with a black paint pen. To finish off the layout I added some stamping, cotton thread in blue and tan and a flair from my personal stash.

Thanks for dropping by and again thank you for all your support this year. xx
