Snowflakes Are Winter's Butterflies By Renea Harrison

 Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies and today they are all a flutter on this Rustic Winter Layout that I created with products from Reneabouquets!

60 Second Video Of Layout:

I started with papers from the Prima Georgia Blues 12 x 12 Paper Pad. Cutting down the 2nd layer, distressing and pleating the edges.

I then added a frosty feeling to the layout by stenciling with a Tim Holtz Speckle Stencil and Ranger Texture Paste. While the paste was still wet I hit it with some Silver Christmas Glitter
Silver Microbeads and then once it was dry did some inking to bring out the design.

I cut out some strips of the Georgia Blues Paper, distressed the edges and inked them with some Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Rolled the bottom ends and layered them onto the center of the layout.

Next, I two tone inked some corrugated board with Denim and Tea Dye Distress Ink and then added some Beautiful Beads Irridescent Pearls in Midnight Magic, and some 
Silver Microbeads to add lots of texture and dimension, and topped it with my photo.

At the bottom of the photo, I added 2-ink edged Beautiful Board Large Elegant Accents Laser Cut Chipboard Pieces, and then added on flowers from the following sets:
I then added a Beautiful Words On Wood Grain (Rustic/Blue Woodgrain) Laser Cut Chipboard piece.

The lace is Sweet Daisy Lace tucked under the paper layers and I added another Shabby Blue Roses Glitter Glass Dragonfly to balance everything out.

Here, I took a Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Dimensional Snowflakes, inked the edges, colored the center snowflake and added some silver sparkle with some glitter paint, and then created a hemp bow and tucked it underneath.

I love these snowflakes!! I created them so that they come in 4 seperate pieces that you stack together to form dimensional snowflake piece giving you amazing dimension and texture!!

These are perfect for projects like this layout, but they also work beautifully for off the page decorating and decorations because with the white coating they are gorgeous from every angle,~front, back and sideways!!

Here you can see how the products just POP on the page!! Thank you for stopping by!! I hope you are staying warm this Winter and getting to create something beautiful for yourself!! Hugs~Renea

Start Each Day With a Grateful Heart

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a design team page for Reneabouquets!I've used a google free photo by A.M. Lorek.
I love using these beautiful products from Renea's.

To make this page I applied clear gesso to Blue Fern paper. I applied texture paste with a stencil, then put the layers under the photo together. I took some corrugated cardboard, ripped off a lot of the surface paper, and painted it with gesso. I added the photo with a layer of cardstock taped on, then watercolor paper. I put layers of foam core board between everything to give dimension, and room to tuck things into.

I picked out Beautiful Board(B Board), painted it with Shimmerz Paints, and topped it with Clear Rock Candy Crackle.

To add visual interest I added micro beads, glass glitter, mica flakes, seed beads, pearls, rhinestones, crystals,glass beads,shells,glass pebbles, pressed flowers and leaves, moss, Prima flowers, Vintaj and Tim Holtz metal,chain, tulle, and tiny pieces of gold lace. I used Prima moulds and clay to make two pieces, and painted them.

I painted with layers of gesso, Shimmerz, Prima Art Alchemy paints,Prima waxes, and mica powders. 

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

"Be Present" Layout by Toni

Hi everyone, so excited to share with you my very first design team project for Reneabouquets. Inspired by the beautiful mood board this month, the softness but vintage feel of the board help direct me with my layout.

I started with the background using Blue Fern's Happy Accident paper collection. Randomly I sewed around the edges of the paper and then added a bit of sprays, texture paste and ReneaBouquets Mermaid Shard Glitter Glass mixed with some clear crackle paste to add interest to the background. 
My title reflects my inspirational words for 2019.  Here is an explanation I found om the computer regarding "Be in the present" .... In order to learn from the past and also lead to your future goals then being in the present moment and focusing on what you do on that particular second is very important. 
Several pieces of Beautiful Board, Mulberry flowers, beads, pearls butterflies help bring the layout together. I have a list below of all products used. 
For your pleasure I have included a process video below. Wishing you a day filled with peace and creativity.

ReneaBouquet Design Team Project~ A Mini Scrapbook Album w/ Brandy

Hello ReneaBouquets friends! Today I have a mini paper bag scrapbook album to share with you! I used the super pretty Amber & Apricot Collection from Blue Fern Studios. 

 I've made my paper bag albums like this for many years, I love the pocket that's created on the left pages! I used lots of paper flowers, ribbons & trims, and Beautiful Board chipboard on every page.

Can't go wrong with a Beautiful Board Scroll here and there! :)

I cut apart some of my Autumn Leaves Flourish to adorn many pages.

I'm loving the Majestic Butterfly and Dragonfly!

I hope you enjoyed my mini! I hope it inspires you to use some ReneaBouquets Goodness on your next crafty project!!

Out of Limitations Comes Creativity

 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a design team page for Reneabouquets! I've used a google free photo by A.M. Lorek. 
It's always a pleasure to use such high quality, beautiful products from Reneabouquets

To make this page I applied clear gesso to Lavender Frost paper. I applied texture paste with a stencil, then put the layers under the photo together. I took corrugated cardboard, ripped off some of the surface paper off, and painted it with gesso. On top of the cardboard I added watercolor paper, foam core board,and a layer of cardstock directly attached to it with double sided tape. I find this helps with warping, I get a lot of glare from the shiny photo paper that makes it hard to take photos, The flatter the photo lies,the less glare there is. 

I picked out Beautiful Board (B Board),prepped with gesso, painted with Shimmerz Paints, and topped it with Clear Rock Candy Crackle.

To add visual interest I added microbeads, glass glitter, mica flakes, seed beads, pearls, rhinestones, shells, pressed flowers and leaves, lichen, Prima flowers, metal from Reneabouquets, Tim Holtz, chain, tulle,and tiny pieces of lace. Most of the paint is Shimmerz, but I also used Finnabair Sparks,Waxes, and Tattered Angels. I dabbed on gold and purple mica powder on a lot of raised areas, for highlights. I wanted to show the dimension with the above photo. There's a total of 5 layers of foam core board.

I pretty much coated the background paper with gesso, because things just got too busy.

 A lot of the raised areas of the chipboard and cardboard have gesso on them. I kept adding and changing colors to get something I wanted.I added a little Prima stamping at the end,and also rubbed on some Green Brocade Prima wax in a few areas.

There's a lot of texture with all the micro beads and glitter.

To help tie things together, I brush a little gesso on almost everything, then add more paint, or mica powder.

I tucked in some pale aqua tulle at the sides and top of the layers. I glued a Butterfly Kiss on the left there. The key has gesso, paint, and mica powders on it. I glued rhinestones in the indentations at the top of the key itself,and tied on some white silk ribbon. Right by the key is a Tim Holtz charm with Art Alchemy Paper, topped with Dimensional Magic. 

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