ReneaBouquets DT Project Fall Mini Album w/ Brandy



Happy Fall, Readers! Brandy here to share a super pretty mini accordion album!  

This sweet scrapbook is only about 4x6 inches, it's made from small envelopes that I made specially for it. Each page has a tag slid inside the top opening for journaling, for the photo mats on each page. 

Beautiful Board Products come in multiple sizes, because we know that “one size does not fit all” Artists! I usually choose the small pieces to work with, but I know Renea's got any size I might need.
Same with flowers! What would we do without these tiny works of art to dress up creations!?

                                      

I had so much fun coloring lots of Fall Beautiful Board pieces in all of these glorious colors of the season. I used inks, embossing powders, waxes, and even colored polka dots on some with a marker!







Fold it up and tie it shut for a book shape, or leave it standing outstretched for a true feast for the eyes! Show off a few of your treasured photos, just add them over the photo matts. :)









So many stunning layers! What will you make with some of the beautiful fall pieces Renea has this year? I hope you can stop over to the Artist's with an Edge page on Facebook and share your creations with us!

Here's a list of all the ReneaBouquets goodness used on todays product-

Reneabouquets Design Team Post, Happy Halloween, by Melissa Larson

 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new project for the amazing Reneabouquets. Go and see all the fun                                                                                 treasures there!                                                                








I sponged  white gesso on the Beautiful Board pieces, then applied Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste with a spatula and a TCW stencil. I put the BB on, then all the beads, and started adding Shimmerz Paints. I wanted a more intense colors, so I used alcohol inks. I added mica powders at the end in a pale almost white blue purple color, purple, and gold.

 










To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,iridescent wrapping paper,white,black and purple tulle, Swarovski and other brands of crystals, glass beads, pearls,sequins,metal from Tim Holtz, flowers from  Reneabouquets,and bling from my stash. There's a couple fussy cut pieces from Graphic 45 Halloween papers. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things.


 




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

My Beautiful Happy Little Girl Layout by Amy Voorthuis

Goodmorning Sweeties, 

Today I precent you another layout with some soft tones this time, and a picture of my pretty little girl and myself. For this layout I used the pretty paper collection "Sapphire Days" by Scrap And Me it has pretty blues, greens & soft browns in it which is totally in my comfort zone. I used a couple of my favorite Renea Bouquets products for this layout.

My Beautiful Happy Little Girl:
{that I love so ridiculously} 
I went with this months sketch at the Scrap and Me blog which is totally amazing. On my background sheet I stitched around the edges as I did on my circles then I placed 3 strip pieces of slightly darker blue papers on that background sheet which I lifted a little.


I treated most pieces of chipboard with gesso, embossing powder, paint and waxes but the leaves I left them just the way they where. You can see that in the closeups. I also did a lot of fussy cutting for this layout.


This picture is very dear to me I just love the way Abbey smiles here, she is such a awesome, sweet & wonderful little girl. On the background I also added a stencil en some sprays and to finish my layout of I added some wishing bubbles and some shard glitter glas.

Reneabouquets Design Team Page, Main St. Northport, N.Y.,by Melissa Larson

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

I wanted to make a page for my husband's birthday, and this is one of his favorite photos. It's my mother in law, my sister in law, and me. We're shopping right before Christmas, in Rich's hometown.








 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. I taped together layers of cardboard with the photo on top. I applied Prima crackle paste with a spatula. I put all the beads and flowers on the page, and added Shimmerz Paints. I painted it with Shimmerzpaints, Amsterdam White Ink, Inktense watercolor pencil in Bark, yellow, Prima waxes, and mica powders.






To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,gold leaf,iridescent wrapping paper,gold thread, lace,black tulle, white tulle, pressed and dried flowers,white ink ,Swarovski and other brands of crystals, glass beads, pearls,metal from Reneabouquets,Tim Holtz, flowers from  Reneabouquets,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things,and to put the cardboard layers together. 














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

Grateful and Blessed Fall Inspired Mini Album by Ginny Nemchak

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps!

Ginny here and I'm so very excited to be sharing my first project that I've created as Guest Designer for September. It's such an honor to be joining the team of super creative designers. Getting to work with such beautiful supplies was a real joy! I made a Fall inspired mini album. I'm using the Harvest Meadow paper collection that coordinates  with my Renea Bouquets supplies.

Grateful and Blessed Mini Album

I think that sweet Little Scarecrow  really makes the perfect focal image.  It fits perfectly in the Simply Beautiful Frame. I loved the neutral finish on the frame so I left it unaltered. 

A generously sized arrangement of autumnal flowers really anchors this corner.  I've mixed in some loopy twine bows to fill in the display and added some extra sweet rose buds.

This album is fairly large so I was able to include a second arrangement to the top for balance. 
That  layer of the beautiful Venetian embroidered Lace provides so much texture and the warm vintagy tone matches perfectly. A few final details for the cover are of course the iconic Renea Bouquets Butterflies and Iridescent Pearls in Midnight Blue.


The detail moves right on in to the inside of the book with the Fancy Fall Corner Set. The generous sized surface allowed for a finish of heat set multi tonal embossing powder in a bronze metallic palate. 

When the tags are removed from the pockets you can see the lace detail on the base of the book.  It looks very striking against the mustard yellow patterned paper. 

Here's a few details of the rest of the book:


So that's my first project created for September. I hope you enjoyed seeing it as much  I did making it.  Thank you Renea for such a generous selection of crafty supplies to create with.

Please join me for a tutorial on this mini album....



Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) Hugs....Ginny

You are The World to Me Layout by Amy Voorthuis

Goodmorning sweet friends,

Today it's my turn again on this amazing blog, as you all may know by now I am a die heart layout maker and it takes me roughly about five hours to create a layout. From the beginning untill the end {with the idea of papers & products I use leaving out of that time} So this next layout will not be any different although this design I made one time before. For this layout I have used two Maja Design collections "Miles Apart" & "Enjoying Outdoors"

You are The World to Me:

I wanted to follow the Art Recipe Moodboard on the Finnabair blog for this month which consists out of Purple, Rich Yellow and Fern Green....The beautiful frames are treated with rust paste, impasto paste and three different color waxes. The rest of the beautiful boards I kept just the way they are which is a gorgeous color. I only added some wax on the words "YOU" & "ME" to make it more matching my layout. 

I used a pictures of our sweet Abbey and me....in our house we are in a different fase at the moment Abbey went to kindergarden for the first time last week. And it was very hard for her she was crying her eyes out but today she didn't want to go home with me lol, that's how fast they get used to it!

Unconditional Love by Faithful Designs by Christy

Hello everyone, here is my project for ReneaBouquets, a canvas titled Unconditional Love. In this canvas I show a picture of me and my mother and I framed it in a Beautiful Board Large Twisted Chain Frame arranged with gorgeous flowers, a Sweetheart Pink butterfly, a Vintage Wedding lace, Beautiful Beads hearts of glass, and an Elegant Wedding button from Reneabouquets.


First I prepared the canvas using gesso, paint, texture and gelatos.


Then, I glued the beautiful Vintage Wedding lace from Reneabouquets, the Beautiful Board chipboard pieces, and the gorgeous flowers around the frame


I also used a Beautiful Beads heart glass and an Elegant Wedding button.
