A Beautiful Moment Layout By Renea Harrison

I was in need of creating something soft and romantic, so I put together this so feminine, so romantic layout using products from Reneabouquets

The papers that I used are from the Blue Fern Studios Attic Charm Paper Collection, and I started with a base layer and then took a second sheet and distress, inked tore and curled the edges up and then script stamped the corners with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.
I marked where I wanted my frame to be and then took a mini inking tool and inked with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress InkTim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink, and Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink with more emphasis on the greens. I then inked on down the page with more emphasis on the pink and 

then used a damask stencil and Ranger Opaque Crackle Paste to get this really YUMMY cracked look.

I then added the Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Victorian Scroll Frame With 2 Accents to house my photo and create the pattern across the top part of the layout. I took a sea sponge and dabbed the 2 accents with the Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress Ink.
I added a piece of  Bridesmaid Lace  under the frame to bring out more texture and pattern.

I created a flower layer on each side of the frame, under the accents using the following flower sets:
Spring Green Roses & Leaves Flower Set 
layered on top of cheesecloth
Inked some Beautiful Board Laser Cut chipboard Ivy Vine Tuck Ins, cut them apart and Tucked Them In!! I also tucked in one of my handcrafted Love Story Glitter Glass Butterflies.

I repeated the flower, cheesecloth and ivy pattern on the opposite side.

I created puddles of  Vintage Pearl Mica Flakes. I really wish you could see this in real life, it is such a gorgeous look! I dripped soft pink paint and then dripped gesso onto that, sprinkled the drips with 
Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass. and then added Unicorn Candy Beautiful Beads Iridescent Pearls

To finish out the layout, I took a Beautiful Board Beautiful Words Sparkle, Fairy, Dust, Moment (I used Moment), sponge inked it and then accented it with little rose buds from the sets that I used earlier.

I love how easily my Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard can add such amazing visual interest to a project!! I draw my chipboard to be very intricate and to add depth and detail to your projects that you just can't get from any other product!! I hope you love it as much as I do!! Thank you for the visit!! Hugs ~Renea

A Beautiful Dream Layout By Renea Harrison

I love using darker, more grungier colors, mixed with feminine accents!! I guess I am just a girlie grunge artist at heart!! Today, I have a layout created with products from Reneabouquets that I incorporated that grungy darkness with romantic pieces to create a super, dreamy layout:

The papers are from the Blue Fern Studios Remnants Paper Collection, and I started with a bottom layer, and then took a second sheet of paper and tore, inked and distressed it and layered it onto the base layer.

Next, I added 2 pieces from the Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Doily Set #2. Beautiful Board comes in this gorgeous Vintage White Color and it was perfect as is for this project!! I have a lot of  artists ask me what glue I use to apply the intricate chipboard pieces with, so that you don't see the adhesive. I use Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue. It really does dry super fast and crystal clear.
I then took two more layers of distressed and inked paper and created the matte for my photo, that I distressed and sewed to make it really stand out.

I stenciled some bricks using Ranger Texture Paste, and then heated that up with my heat gun to get a really puffy, soft look. Next, came a layer of  White Wide Floral Lace that I cut in half, adding one half here and tucking the other half into the top under the distressing.
The flowers are from the following sets:
I heat embossed with a silver powder,  a Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Medium Victorian Scroll Border  that I cut in half and then tucked into my flowers.
I then heat embossed a Silver Baroque Metal Frame with the same Silver Powder and tucked that into my floral, and took a Dream Key In Silver and tucked that so that you just see the DREAM part sticking out.

I created a balanced look by going to the opposite corner and doing some of the stenciling and then layering in matching flowers and chipboard pieces.
The Dragonflies are my handcrafted Shabby Sugar Plum Roses Glitter Glass Dragonflies.

The latch is a Victorian Latch Trinket that I added some of the Silver Powder to and heat embossed it to set it. (If you do this process with metal, please be sure to let it cool, because it can get dangerously hot!)

Here you can see all the dimension and texture I created with the products from Reneabouquets!!
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my blog!! I am most grateful! Hugs ~Renea

Reneabouquets Fairy House by DT Tina Goodwin

Hi everyone! Today I have a mixed media project to share with you. Oh this project. It has been a thorn in my side! Before I go on, I'll show you a picture of how it turned out. 

I had a love hate relationship with this little house. Andrew built it in June. One day of girls camp for the 8-11 year old's was held at our house. Andrew made bird house kits for all the girls. He put one together so they would know what their house should look like when they were done putting it together. This thing has sat on my table since then.

I had originally wanted it to be Shabby Chic. I put a layer of Gesso on it and looked at it for days. I had no ideas. I tried painting bricks on it. NOPE. Didn't like it...covered it with Gesso. I decided to leave the house white and I painted the roof brown. HATED IT! On went another layer of Gesso...thank goodness for Gesso! 

I got ahead of myself and adhered the gears on the house before I painted and textured them and the house. It looked boring. So, I pried them off.

Keep in mind, this all happened over the span of two months. I would look at the house every day trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it. 

Thankfully, I was finally inspired! It was Renea, she had posted a gorgeous layout in the DT group. As soon as I saw her layout, THE LIGHT TURNED ON!! The colors were perfect! 

Once I had been inspired, there was nothing getting in the way of me working on this little house. (Except for drying time.)

It felt so good to FINALLY have the mojo to get going. 

I painted the house brown using acrylic paint and a mostly dry paint brush to get that worn/streaky look. 

I added texture to to the gears, by covering them with Tim Holtz Opaque Crackle Texture Paste, sprinkling Rose Gold Glass Microbeads over the top of that while it was wet and letting them dry. When the gears were dry, I painted them with Rusty Paper. 

I covered the roof with duct tape and added little dots of hot glue to imitate bolts. After that, I added a layer of Gesso, let it dry, and then painted it with Rusty Paper. 

The bricks were made using acrylic paint that I thickened with cornstarch and spread over the Tim Holtz Brick Layering Stencil

I am super happy with how my fairy house turned out.

Vintage Time Scrapbook page and process Reneabouquets Design Team Project

Hi Everyone!

I used Blue Fern Studios Tattered walls paper collection. 
I made up a process video if you'd like to see how I made it...  "HERE"

 I love to use the Tarnished Brass Pocket Watch, - fill it with beads and things.

I think the colors of the flowers add to the vintage feel.  They don't look bright and shinny.  
Phantasy buterfly's look so natural, they might fly right off the page.
 One of my favorite things to do is put beads on a project.  I love the way it looks, and get quite caught up in the process of putting them on.  It's fun!

Fortune Favors the Bold

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a design team page for Reneabouquets! Go on over to the store to see all the beautiful things! 
I was inspired by the photo to make something that had an "in the woods feel."

I applied gesso with a cosmetic sponge over the paper where I'd be putting paint on.I stenciled on texture paste with a credit card and a 13 Arts stencil. You can't see it that much, it's kind of subtle, it has little flowers and at the top you can see a few words.
I picked out Beautiful Board(BB) chipboard and put the photo on,with 2 layers of foam core board under the photo. This is to give it dimension, and to have some space to tuck things into.

Once I had the BB glued on , I thought about what colors to paint it. It started off purple, Art Alchemy -/Sparks - Iris Potion, and I put on a thick layer of Ranger Clear Rock Candy on top.To highlight the cracks, I took a black watercolor crayon, scribbled a lot on my craft mat, and mixed it with a little water. I painted the edges of the BB, and just by holding the brush against the edge, the cracks absorb the dark color. 

I wasn't happy with the purple, so I continued adding more colors,some Art Alchemy- Sparks - Fairy Wings,Walnut distress stain,gold mica powder, Tattered Angels, and Shimmerz. I put on another layer of Rock Candy Crackle. To make the BB stand out more, I painted underneath it with black gesso. On top of the gesso, I smoothed on glossy accents, and sprinkled on lavender glitter glass.

I added more color on the glitter.

To add visual interest I used the following, diamond shard glitter glass, microbeads, glass beads, beautiful beads, seed beads,glass glitter,distress glitter, metal glitter, rhinestones, metal, purple wire, ribbon, tulle, feathers, dried moss, dried flowers and leaves,lichen,shells, mica flakes, and more.

I used a lot of White Gold Prima Wax on everthing, I rubbed a little on all over.

I love using metal on my pages, and bling too.I went around the page and painted on more of the watercolor crayon mix, to tone down the shiny surfaces. I applied it over a lot of the glued on glitter and most of the items with it too, I just liked the way it tied things together.

I had a hard time deciding which photos here to use,so I used a lot.

The purple flower is from Reneabouquets, and so are the little green BB leaves. I painted them green and put Crackle on top. 

Here is a list of things I used from Reneabouquets:
