Reneabouquets Artists With An Edge July 2020 Moodboard Challenge

Hi everyone! It's July, which means there is a new mood board challenge in the Reneabouquets Artists With an Edge Facebook Group

In case you are new to my blog, we do a mood board challenge every month in the Reneabouquets Artists With an Edge Facebook Group. Everyone who enters a new project using items from Reneabouquets, gets entered into a chance to win a Reneabouquets prize package at the end of the month. 

Here is the kick off project that I made for this month's challenge.

Photo credit: Unsplash

To make this page I applied clear gesso to Blue Fern's Jane's Memoirs paper.

  I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger. Below that is a mat of watercolor paper, and at the bottom is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most of the paper from the top of the cardboard, and painted it with gesso. I put two layers of cardboard between the layers to add dimension. 

I put the layers with the photo onto the page.

I painted the page with clear gesso, then applied texture paste with a stencil and an old credit card. I sprinkled on Ultra Thick Embossing Powder, and heated it with a heat tool. The Beautiful Board leaves at the bottom are a combination of 3 or 4 layers of Green Olive Shimmerz and Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz. 

I picked out Beautiful Board,applied gesso with a brush, and painted it with pink Prima Butterfly Spells Sparks paint.I applied a thick layer of Clear Rock Candy Crackle. I added a lot of color around the paper with Shimmerz paints. I used a mix of Run Forest Run and Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz, and Dear John Letter for the pinkish color. The blue green color on the mat and corrugated is a mix of Blue My Mind and Run Forest Run Inklingz. Green Olive Shimmerz

To add visual interest I added Printed Beautiful Board, micro beads, seed beads, gold leaf,glass glitter, glass beads, pearls, Swarovski crystals, rhinestones,sequins, pressed flowers and leaves,strands of gold cheesecloth,iridescent wrapping paper,metal from Reneabouquets and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets,Prima,shells, and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents. There are some fussy cut images from Graphic 45 papers.

Any gold on the page is either mica powder or gold leaf.

DIY Paper Craft: Shabby Chic Home Decor : "Beautiful Moment"

For this project, I had a photo that I have held onto for about 2 years, waiting for inspiration. It is a  wedding photo of a beautiful bride who is a daughter of a good friend of mine. About 2 years ago, I created a design team project for Reneabouquets using my first photo from this is the link to that post: . But the theme for this next photo just never came to mind...until a few weeks ago. It is a surprise gift for my friend and I sincerely hope she likes it and will display it in her home next to the other gift that I gave her.
I was able to use beautiful product from to make this project full of shabby richness and exquisite memories. I will have my You Tube video link to entire start to finish process below, as well as close up photos. I will also provide the links to the Reneabouquets product that I used on this project! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you love this project as much as I do!

Life is Beautiful Mini Album DT Project for Reneabouquets

Hi crafty friends!
I am here to share with you my album titled: "Life is Beautiful".
  I have used lovely items from Reneabouquets, floral papers from Recollections, as well as Tonic Studios and Spellbinders dies to create this lovely keepsake.
On the cover, you can see the adorable Printed Beautiful Board Tiny Flower Girl Daphne. She is coupled with the Beautiful board Victorian Scroll Pattern Laser cut chipboard. I have used several pieces of the Victorian Scroll pattern throughout this book.
You can also appreciate the beautiful colors of the Pink and White roses and gardenia, carefully arranged with cabbage roses and grouped with Garden Part and Venice Rose Laces .
On the spine, I have carefully arranged the Garden Party lace atop others, and grouped it with the Pearl Accented Wedding Day Lace. It is both delicate and beautiful!

My front cover features a Sweetheart Pink Glitter Glass Premium butterfly. I love the tiny heart detail in the center! It tops off a gorgeous gold accent made with a Spellbinders die. The opposite page hold a card that slides out. This is topped with a piece of white Beautiful Butterfly lace.

Here you can also see the delicate white lace on the left. This is the delicate sheer Romance lace. The golden die cut is topped with sequins and pearls for a touch of soft color.

The very next page is my favorite, and it showcases the Beautiful Board Elizabeth in Paris topping a piece of Daisy Chain lace. This is also grouped with the same golden die cut from Spellbinders. Opposing her is the grand Eiffel tower, complete with sequins and delicate pearls for a very Victorian layout. 

This page showcases more pieces from the Victorian Scroll Pattern collection. You will see how I grouped these pieces on the outer and inner pages. The matching tags tucked in the pockets will hold pictures inside, and these are also decorated with pieces from the Garden Party lace, and Spellbinders dies. The small heart shaped gear is from the Beautiful Board Spring Beautiful Bits. I used a moonstone bead in the center for added shine.

These are the interior pages with more pockets made with Tonic studios dies, and matted layers for pictures.
Below is a double pocket page decorated with a gorgeous Beautiful Board Small Victorian Snowflake Clock face, topped with another gear, and it is followed be a sentiment that reads : Moment, also made of Beautiful Board. This is also adorned with a Sweetheart Pink Glitter Glass Butterfly. 

The pockets were created using a Crafters Companion die, and it houses two photo mats, with room for more. 

Below are the tuck spots made with Tonic Studios dies.  I thought the flowers were perfect for this book!

Here is another double pocket page, this time with more Victorian Scrolls and Beautiful Butterflies to adorn the photo mats. I fussy cut the floral paper to make the pockets on the page. 

Below you see more of the Venice lace, this time paired with the Watercolor Cherry Blossom Premium Glitter Glass Butterflies. They are absolutely beautiful among the floral garden in this book!

The sentiment reads: Life is a Beautiful Journey. I believe this to be true!
The last page houses another tuck away side pocket. This time I adorned the card on the edge with a piece of Garden Bouquet lace. This gives the book an adorable junk-journal look when it is closed. The lace is covered in beautiful pearls. 

Last but not least is the back cover. Here I used a stunning Beautiful Board Small Romance and Roses Heart Frame. It serves both as a picture frame and a shaker!
As you can see, I have filled it with shiny sequins and rose microbeads from Reneabouquets, and also tied golden tulle on the edge. The picture will slip in on the side of the page.
I hope you've enjoyed this project share, and that you take advantage of June's Coupon available at Renebouquets with your thirty dollar purchase. You will receive a set of gorgeous dragonflies!
As always, I thank you for your time, and hope that you can 
Be inspired, Be Blessed!

Lady Bug and butterfly shaker box greeting card by Cherry Nelson

                              I hope Summer is finding you well RB peeps!   Cherry here today to share a Summer shaker cutie with you!  What would Summer be with out a few bugs?  I promise these are the cute kind.  I am so smitten with that lady bug ...and the butterfly?  They both just make me smile.  I ended up creating a card with this shaker but could see it adhered to a box as well for an extra special gift with maybe something tucked inside.  Perfect for a Summer birthday gift.  I filled it with all kinds of goodies from Reneabouquet's store.  That is the fun part.  I wanted it to look like the bugs were crawling on the box and combined with the tuck ins it added the perfect amount of dimension.  Thanks for visiting today!  XOXO, Cherry
