Inspirational Shabby Chic Wall Art

  Soooooo, I had this insert from a 12x12 3D frame. When I put my very chunky LO into it, I removed this insert, because it wouldn't allow my page to fit, but I didn't want to throw it away because I thought I might be able to use it someday... and that "someday" has arrived!  It was already white, but I wanted texture, so I used a foam circular pounce brush and white chalk paint. I pounced the brush up and down with the paint, creating tiny texture and heat set it in between the 3 layers that I ended up doing. For the background, I had this 12x12 sheet of wire from Hobby Lobby, so I stapled that to the back of the frame.   I painted it with the chalk paint as well. (The fabric behind the wire is just my backdrop for the photo, so this art is see-thru with the wire).
  I used Prima Stationers Desk paper for the main piece and layered a 6x6 piece of acrylic over the top and used a sewing machine to adhere the two together. I did this, so that the background would seem soft, transparent  and also, so that the center décor would seem to float in the midst of the frame.  I used a Prima stencil on top with Prima Light Paste and Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio White Sidewalk Spray for a light mist in areas.  I used tons of flowers, Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Resin/Metal pieces, Prima Floral trim, and wood words from my stash. The remaining embellishments came From Reneabouquets Etsy shop (I will have those links down below). I will also have the link to my YT video explaining this project in further detail.
