Shabby Chic/Mixed Media DIY Frame

I wanted to create a special belated wedding gift for a friend and the minute she popped this picture onto social media, I saw it, had to have it for my project and saved it quickly to my album. I used a frame that I had purchased from Hobby Lobby, repainted over the distressed areas (because they were too busy in conjunction with my overall design), used her favorite colors, recolored the photo just a bit to give it a more timeless feel, and added beautiful pieces (including the new, exquisite Beautiful Board product) from Reneabouquets to complete the overall enchanting, textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed in her home for years to come. 
Below the pictures will be a link to my YouTube video for a complete start to finish process of how I made this project! I will also add the links to the products used from

Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Ballerina Card - By DT Tina Goodwin

More Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets!!! Renea is keeping super busy with Beautiful Board. She is putting new pieces in her shop almost daily. Renea designs these pieces herself! She is a women of many talents, that's forsure! 

Ok, on to today's card. I used the Beautiful Board Medium Ballerina Chipboard as my focus. She is very elegant. I wanted to give her skirt a little bit of a different look so I took a tiny bit of the Reneabouquets Trim Tattered Pink Pleated Tulle and made her a tulle skirt. I finished it off with a tulle bow and a tiny Beautiful Board Beautiful Bits - Shabby Hearts. I love how it turned out! 

Here's a closer look at this gorgeous Beautiful Board Ballerina

The papers are from the Happy Accident Collection. The entire collection is stunning.  

I love the butterflies at Reneabouquets so much. They are all beautiful. I use them on my projects often. The one below is Sweetheart Soft Yellow Butterfly. Even the names of the butterflies are beautiful =)

 I don't think you can find such beautiful flowers anywhere else! This Gardinia from the Dark Pink Wild Roses & Gardinia Leaves Flower Set  is beyond beautiful.

 The lace underneath the layers of cardstock is Cotton Crochet Lace Cluny Lace. I love the way it just barely peeks out.

Thank you all so much coming to take a look at my project. I hope you have a great weekend.

Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Baby Boy Card - By DT Tina Goodwin

Good morning! I'm back with another project showcasing Reneabouquets Beautiful Board

I colored the Beautiful Board Ivy Vine Flourish Chipboard with Tim Holtz distress inks. I did not Gesso them before hand. I just applied the ink straight to the Beautiful Board. I love the fact that the Beautiful Board does not need have Gesso on it to color beautifully.

 I found this sweet image on Etsy. When I saw it I knew I wanted to use it in one of my Reneabouquets DT assignments. The items that Reneabouquets makes and carry make a project extra special. 

Like these gorgeous flowers from the Blue & White Roses & Leaves Mulberry Paper Set. Or this beautiful Tiny Treasures Tiny Dancer Beauty Butterfly that Renea handmakes. 

The Glitter Glass is another item that I use A LOT on my projects. I love the added texture and sparkle. For this project, I used the 2 Ounce Teal Chunky Glitter Glass.

Oh! I almost forgot. The paper I used is also from Reneabouquets . It comes in the Happy Accident Collection Paper. The entire collection is scrumdiddllyumptious! 

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit. See you all again real soon!

Vintage canvas using Reneabouquets Beautiful chipboard board pieces.

Hi crafty Friends,

I was so excited to put some of Reneabouquest Beautiful Board Chipboard together to create a canvas.  Beautiful Board is so thick, I knew it would create deep shadows, which would show it's detail,
and add depth and texture.  

I started by gessoing the empty canvas.  Then decoupaged some torn up old book pages over the whole thing.   I added some lace in spots over that.  Then gessoed another light coat over everything. 

Then the fun began with Beautiful board Bricks.  I used 2 sizes of bricks.  I put some book page pieces over a few of the bricks themselves. And some of the bricks I didn't set all the way back into their frame (or mortar). I left sticking them up a bit. 
Then Ivy Vine Flourish and Ivy Vine Flourish 2

Reneabouquets Trim-Sheer Romance Lace - White, Ivory Wild Roses, Gardenia & Leaves Flower Set,   Prima marketing   Art Ingredients - Art Stones and a couple of metal filigree pieces (I had painted white).
I die cut a frame from a canvas sheet to put the picture of this sweet boy in.  I covered the picture before I sprayed the whole thing with a warm brown tea stain spray ink.  And went over it all again with a dry brush of gesso.

Thank you for stopping by to look!

Reneasbouquets Beautiful Board Carousel Horse Card - By DT Tina Goodwin

Hello everyone! Have you seen the new Reneabouquets Beautiful Board pieces?!? If not you HAVE to go take a look! It's like chipboard pieces only 100x better. You can use Beautiful Board pieces as is or use distress inks or paint them. Here's the super cool part about the Beautiful Board pieces...YOU DON'T HAVE TO GESSO before painting or distressing. Renea has created a project that makes our lives easier as crafters. She has totally eliminated at least 2 steps. The Gessoing and the and the dry time that comes before adding the desired medium.  

Here is my first project using a Beautiful Board piece. This is the gorgeous Beautiful Board Medium Carousel Horse. 

Did you catch the size there?!?! Medium. Renea has different sizes of the Carousel Horse and all the other Beautiful Board cuts. She is making sure that she has there is Beautiful Board pieces that every crafter can use. 

I'm not sure if you can tell, but I totally fell in love with the Beautiful Board pieces when I saw them. When they arrived in my mail I fell even more in love. Renea had been telling me about the Beautiful Board, but in my mind I was thinking chipboard. Beautiful Board is soooo much better than chipboard! Once you have your hands on some Beautiful Board, you will know exactly what I am talking about. 

On my card there is also Beautiful Board Bits - Shabby Hearts. These come in a little jar with different sized hearts in it. 

I made the card out of vintage style cardstock. The cardstock packet is called Happy Accident Collection and comes with 20 double sided papers. This paper packet is GORGEOUS!!! 

The lace I used is also from Reneabouquets. It is called Reneabouquets Trim Petite Flower Lace. I love the texture that it gives to my card. 

The last item I used from Reneabouquets is the beautiful Pink Lemonade Curly Roses Mulberry Paper Flowers. I love how realistic they look. These flowers are a nice touch for any project. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today. I really encourage you to go and check out the Beautiful Board at Reneabouquets if you haven't already. 

Have a craftastic day!

Shabby Tag DT Project for ReneaBouquets

Hey Crafty Friends Phyllis here to share a Shabby Tag I created for a swap!  I wanted to show off ReneaBouquets Beautiful Board!  
Renea's been super busy creating Beautiful designs with her Beautiful Board!  Be sure to check it out!  It's Amazing!!!
I used one of Prima's packaging cardboard to create this tag,  keep those packaging items,  they're great for keeping your projects sturdy!  I'm always making my tags oversized with lots of embellishments!  

I did some stenciling with some Prima White Crackle and also used some Color bloom spray for a touch of color.

Behind Beautiful Board Tea Rose Frame I created a shaker with some beads,  microbeads and shard glitter glass.  

I used some embossing powders on the Beautiful Board Shabby Rose Frame,  the colors were perfect!

I'm in Love with ReneaBouquets Tiny Treasures Sweet Nothings Butterflies,  one of my favorites!

 So many possibilities with ReneaBouquets DIY supplies!
