Dear friend card by Cherry Nelson




Helllllllllllllo Reneabouquet fans!  Cherry here today to share.....what???  Another bumblebee card!  Yeooooooooooop.  This time I used flocking powders to dress these honeybees up.  I colored them first than added adhesive in yellow and black....it gave the bees a great fuzzy textural look.  From there a few gorgeous beautiful beads added the finishing touch.  Scroll down for complete Reneabouquet supply list.  Hope you enjoy!  xoxo, cherry

Reneabouquets Artists With An Edge August 2020 Moodboard Challenge

Hi everyone! It's August, 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.

To make this page I applied clear gesso to 49 and Market's Sonnet paper, from the Irrevocable Beauty Collection.


  I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat. Below that is a watercolor paper mat, 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 sprinkled on Ultra Thick Embossing Powder on, and heated it.I put two or three layers of cardboard between the layers to add dimension. 


I put the layers with the photo onto the page.


I had already painted the page with clear gesso. I applied Prima Platinum crackle paste with a stencil and an old credit card. I picked out Beautiful Board, and sponged on gesso. The Beautiful Board flourish to the right of the photo is Olive U Truly, a pale green watercolor by Shimmerzpaints, topped with Clear Rock Candy Crackle. I used pale greens and blues, and a shimmery brown color over the mat, corrugated, and background paper.             







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,gold lace, black tulle, off white tulle trim,iridescent wrapping paper,rub ons,wire,metal from Reneabouquets and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets,Prima,shells,glass pebbles, 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 and Prima papers.


I used a lot of Citrine Pearlex Mica Powder on the raised surfaces. I rubbed it on with my finger. I later added turquoise and green. I painted the edges of the layers layers mica powder, and Shimmerzpaints.
















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

The Scenic Route - Mixed Media Home Decor by Jenn DuBell

Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing my latest Reneabouquets project. I have created a beach themed mixed media home decor piece.
For this project i have used the following Reneabouquets products:


This Printed Beautiful Board Mermaid is just beautiful and makes the perfect focal point for my project. The base is a wooden star I purchased at my local craft store and then covered in a beach scene paper. I also added some sparkly texture paste through a bubble texture stencil behind her.
My Beautiful Board Starfish pieces were all inked using Distress inks and then embossed with Lindy's embossing powder. The beautiful Board anchor was painted in a dark grey acrylic and brushed with silver wax. The flowers were adhered and then brushed with pearl acrylic for a bit more sparkle.

 Hello everyone Lanette here,

Today I am celebrating a little Christmas in July! 

I just had to share Renea's new Angel Ornaments they are absolutely adorable! I decided a set of Tags would be perfect so could use both the Traditional and Shabby Angels.

After digging through my paper stash and found a sheet of Blue Ferns Studio's Vintage Christmas Collection and I decided that it would be perfect! 

You can see my process from start to finish over on the RB Youtube Channel :





for this tag i chose the Traditional Angel Ornament ...

Altered Paint Brush with Lighted Shadow Box by Toni

Hello to our Reneabouquet family and friends. Every month RB hosts a swap that you can participate in and it's a great way to make new creative friends and share your love for paper crafts with another. This month's swap was to create an altered paint brush, here is my take on it.
I purchased a brush from Dollar Store 3" wide which provided a nice amount of space to create on. Below I have a video tutorial so you can watch the different mixed media techniques that I used to get this effect... very easy to do.

The main focal point on the brush was the sweet RB shadow box. They are so much fun to work with and so versatile. I decided to add some fairy lights just for effect. If you haven't worked with these shadow boxes you need to get your hands on them especially with the holidays approaching. They are so much fun to create with. 
As always, RB never disappoints when it comes to their beautiful flowers and Beautiful Board. I will leave a list of all supplies used from the store below with their links for easy access. I invite you to participate in our swaps. I get so excited when I receive my package in the mail from a fellow crafter that I know has specifically created something just for me. Give it a try... Until next time, xoxo
