Hello crafty friends!
I am so excited to be hosting monthly challenges in the Reneabouquets Facebook group. We are going to have lots of fun together!
This months challenge theme is...Blessings. We were inspired to do this challenge by the quote 'Train yourself to find the blessing in everything.' Sometimes life gets extremely busy and we forget to take a moment to breathe and look at the blessings in our lives.
The idea is for you to create ANY kind of project, using ANY Reneabouquets item, and using the quote 'Train yourself to find the blessing in everything' or someone/something you feel blessed to have in your life as inspiration. Easy peasy! Right!?!
I decided that I would make a blessing box for the challenge.
The box is, once again, something that I have been storing in my craft room 4EVER. Loving that being on Reneabouquets DT is giving me the desire/inspiration to use the items I have been saving.
The box started out a light lavender color. I put a few layers of Gesso on it and then sprayed it with ink dies.
After I did the spraying my 6 year old walked in and said "Mama! That is beautiful! It reminds me of space." To me it kinda looked like the Northern Lights. What a blessing it is to be able to see them! Living in Alaska, the Northern Lights appear often during the winter. The stars shine bright and you can see the lights ship across the sky.
Okay, back to the blessing box. I plan to write down a blessing/special moment/memory on a little piece of paper (with dates) everyday and put it in the box. At the end of the year, we will sit together as a family and read each one. Knowing my family, there will be lots of laughs going into this box. I think it will be a lot of fun to read them later on.
I will keep the most special blessings/memories so I can scrapbook them and keep them forever.
I used the beautiful Mini Pink Sorbet Mulberry Paper & Leaves Set and the Mini Plum Mulberry Paper Roses & Leaves Set. I love these flowers! They are very well made. So good that you can spray them with ink sprays (if you want to change the color) and they will not fall apart.
Of course I had to put butterflies on the box. Reneabouquets butterflies are amazing. They really finish off any/every project with a special touch.
On this project, I have used Reneabouquets Sweetheart Glitter Glass Butterflies, Reneabouquets Sweetheart Lavender Glitter Glass Butterflies, and Reneabouquets Shabby Lavender Glitter Glass Butterflies.
The Reneabouquets Trim Sheer Romantic Lace White made the most gorgeous bow for the top of the box. I like how it stands out against the colors.
To add a little shine and texture, I used Reneabouquets Pink Chunky Glitter Glass and Reneabouquets Teal Chunky Glitter Glass.
