Shabby Chic/Mixed Media DIY Frame (DT project for Reneabouquets)

I wanted to create a special belated wedding gift for a friend and the minute she popped this picture onto social media, I saw it, had to have it for my project and saved it quickly to my album. I used a frame that I had purchased from Hobby Lobby, repainted over the distressed areas (because they were too busy in conjunction with my overall design), used her favorite colors, recolored the photo just a bit to give it a more timeless feel, and added beautiful pieces (including the new, exquisite Beautiful Board product) from Reneabouquets to complete the overall enchanting, textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed in her home for years to come. 
 
Below the pictures will be a link to my YouTube video for a complete start to finish process of how I made this project! I will also add the links to the products used from Reneabouquets.com.

Shabby Chic "Set It On A Shelf" Decor (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I had received this small, 3-tier sign as a gift and after 2 years of staring at it, decided to use it as a base to create new décor...that can sit on a shelf and gather dust....but OHHHH, is it cute! I started with painting it with Prima Heavy White Gesso, a pounce brush and a heat tool. I pounced the Gesso on, dried and set it with a heat tool and continued with this process in about 3 layers. It adds an oh-so-soft texture that can't be denied in saying, "that's neat!" LOL. Try it, you'll use this technique on everything altered! Smooth paint will never be the same. I even decided to use a Tim Holtz wood finial as a "candlestick base" to add a little more flair. I used the same painting texture process on this piece as well.  Two different paper collections by Prima (Love Clippings and Rossibelle) were used on this project. I then proceeded to add a combination of flowers and embellishments (as many as I could get on this 5 inch tall piece) to finish and add the final touches! The You Tube video (which includes the whole start-to-finish process) will be linked below, along with links to all the products used from Reneabouquets.com. First up...the pictures!

Shabby Chic Altered Clock (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

 
I got this very cute clock from a friend and decided to make it pretty!! The metal of the piece was already black, but I wanted it to have texture, so I used Prima Heavy Black Gesso with a pounce brush to apply (using up and down pounce motions) and heat set it in between coats. Love to do this technique! It takes some time, but well worth the subtle texture!  After that I added all the fun elements (including beautiful product from Reneabouquets!) and the end result was this pretty piece of home décor!  I will have the link to my You Tube video below the pictures that explains this project in its entirety as well as the links to all the wonderful Reneabouquets products that were used! Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Photo Display (DT Project for Reneabouquets)


I found this very cute jewelry organizer at a sale, and had intended to use it for that purpose, but one time I walked by it and instantly had an idea! I loved the "frame" that comes up from the "doily" plate at the bottom. It originally had two bars on the center bar (for necklaces, I presume) that I gently pried off. The metal that was left, amazingly, was my photo display! To cover the areas where those pieces had been taken off, I used Prima Heavy Gesso and a sponge pounce brush to add texture to all the metal.   Then I added all my fun pieces (wanting lots of texture with beautiful flowers and butterflies) and the end result was this pretty piece of home décor with a picture of my husband and I! I will have the link to my You Tube video below the pictures that explains this project in its entirety as well as the links to all the wonderful Reneabouquet products that were used! Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Mixed Media Altered Art (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

So......I started with this wood photo display (a clearance item that I found at Micheals Craft Store) and decided to use its base as my base for this project. What drew me in to using this piece was the wood slats on the front. It also had an ornate shaped wood tag on the front of it, which I carefully pried off to reuse with my new idea for this piece and removed the wire photo holders...that I will save for use with another project....someday...when inspiration strikes! I, of course, used beautiful items from Reneabouquets (which will be listed below the pictures). I will also attach the link to my You Tube video which gives a "diy" explanation of the entire piece! Enjoy!
