Shabby Chic "Simply Dream"

For this project, I really wanted to design with the Reneabouquets Printed Board Board Romance And Roses line, Persephone. What a sweet little angel! I knew her design would need to be the center of attention for the project. So, here is just a glimpse into how my creativity for this project started out...I was able to begin with an unfinished photo frame that I purchased from Dollar Tree as my base. I had been looking for some inspiration for my project and came by this piece of art that had these paint swooshes in the background on a canvas...very bold and beautiful and I wanted to try it. I decided I would start with light shabby colors of paint detailed on the right, leading to the left, where my art would be mostly detailed along that left side. It was a bold choice leaving so much blank space on the right, but I also knew, my piece was small enough so that it would blend OK.  I also wanted to add in some Reneabouquets Fine Diamond Glitter Glass on the right side that started large and went smaller, sort of leading your eye to the artful side. The rest, well,  just came about very easily, knowing that the center of attention, would be "framed" among a Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard "Garden Gate" of Reneabouquet  Chiffon and Mulberry Flowers, as well as other beautiful product from Reneabouquets. Below the photos, I will have all the links to the product I used on this project down below as well as a link to my You Tube video that shows the designing process! Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Altered Bird House

Hello everyone! Jenn here sharing a fun project using some beautiful Reneabouquets flowers and Beautiful Board.
As we are all practicing "stay at home" these days and I have my 6 year old grandson here we decided to have a craft day...
We had these little wooden birdhouses to paint and that's what we did! When we were all done with the painting, I thought why not take it up a notch and add some amazing Reneabouquets flowers! Here is the result!
The birdhouse was first painted with Folk Art® Coastal Texture Paint in Sea Mist. Next I added some Plaid® Antique Wax and wiped it with a damp cloth. I used a script stamp with brown ink and clear embossed that. Finally I dry brushed with white acrylic paint. For the roof of the house, I painted cream, applied the wax and let it dry. Then I used a wood grain stamp and brown ink to create the wood look. I clear embossed that and dry brushed with white acrylic paint as well.

To embellish the front I used some Reneabouquets Beautiful Board vines. I applied embossing ink and green embossing powder before adhering to the house.
Finally those gorgeous Reneabouquets flowers and leaves in dark brown and Honey!

Reneabouquets Design Team Post, Today Is A Good Day


Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Reneabouquets, go and see all the fun treasures there!

 I've used a photo of my beautiful daughter in law, Aron.           




To make this page I applied clear gesso to Blue Fern 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 layer of watercolor paper, and under that is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most the paper from the surface of the cardboard, and painted it with gesso. I put two layers of corrugated cardboard between each layer to add dimension. 

I put the layers with the photo onto the page. I applied texture paste with a stencil to the paper with an old credit card.I painted the stenciled area with Prima Mermaid Sparks paint, and softened the edges of it with pale pink Shimmerz.

I picked out Beautiful Board(BBoard), painted it with Shimmerz Paints,and topped it with a thick layer of Clear Rock Candy Crackle. I added a little blue and gold mica powder on the pink flowers.






To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,distress glitter, glass beads, pearls, Swarovski crystals, rhinestones,sequins, pressed flowers and leaves,tulle,cheesecloth I painted with Christmas Cheer Shimmerz Paint, wire,lace,iridescent wrapping paper, metal from Reneabouquets,Vintaj,and Tim Holtz, shells,flowers from Reneabouquets and Prima, pieces of floral picks, and bling and metal from my stash. 





I drew out colors from the photo to the mat and corrugated.













Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!

DIY Shabby Chic Home Decor

Well, this project, just designed itself. LOL. I had no rhyme or reason of how things came together...I only knew the pieces that I wanted to work with from www.reneabouquets.com. I was really wanting to design a project using the Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Eiffel Tower and Gothic Gate and I also knew I would return back to a project with a color palate of Pinks and Khakis.... it's almost Spring after all, and time for some light colors! I created the project on a pre-fab home decor piece that I bought on clearance after Mother's Day last year. I like the size of the canvas which is 8x8! Here is what I came up with! The product links used from Reneabouquets will be listed below as well as the start to finish You Tube video of the entire process! Enjoy!!

Reneabouquets Artist With An Edge March 2020 Moodboard Challenge


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

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

Photo credit:Joseph Kellner











To make this page I applied clear gesso to Bird Waltz paper by Blue Fern.

  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 layer 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 put texture paste on with a stencil and an old credit card. I sprinkled on UTEE,ultra thick embossing powder on, and melted it with a heat gun.

I picked out Beautiful Board,applied gesso with a brush,glued it to the page, and painted it with Pixie Dust Shimmerz paint. I applied a thick layer of Clear Rock Candy Crackle. 






To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads, gold leaf,glass glitter, glass beads, pearls, Swarovski crystals, rhinestones,sequins, pressed flowers and leaves, black tulle,gold lace,metal from Reneabouquets,Tim Holtz,Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets,Prima and bling and metal from my stash. 


I combined different colors of Shimmerz and Sparks Art Alchemy Paints on the corrugated,and I used a lot of Ranger Clear Rock Candy.
