Shabby Chic Christmas Wood Letters (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

It's time for decorating some wood letters and what better holiday to create for, than Christmas! You can pick any individual letters (at most craft stores or even Wal-Mart), attach them together, spell out the word that most inspires you to believe in Christmas and decorate to your hearts content! I decided to go with "Joy".  It fits Christmas perfectly!  ...and to be honest, its a shorter
word and takes less time to "pretty up" if you need a quick gift!
I used quite a few products from Reneabouquets Etsy shop
 so I will list the links down below. I will also include my Youtube video,
which explains this project in further detail!
Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Prima Birdcage (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I have been wanting to alter one of these fantastic Prima marketing birdcages. There are two options of colors to decorate with, this rustic option or a shabby chic white version and they both even come with its own cute metal bird!  . I have them both! LOL! I really wanted to keep the birdcage in its natural rustic feel and chose only to alter the inside. I used the Prima Rossi Belle collection. I added a small strip of paper to the bottom edge of the cage and a piece to the very back! That's it! I also wanted to add a strand of the Prima Lumies (a 1 foot LED strand), so I adhered the main power switch to the back and brought forward the light strand, weaving it in and out of all the embellishments as I layered them vs. trying to wind it in later. I did it this way, because I wanted to hide the strand as much as possible!   This entire project was made possible with tons of product from Reneabouquets!! I will have the product list and links below. I am also attaching the YouTube video which explains this project in further detail....just so I don't have to type it all out! LOL! Thanks for stopping by!!

LOVE&Dream Mixed Media Canvas Design (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I found a set of the tiniest, cutest 3D canvases which only measure 3x3 in size and knew that I had to create something so shabby chic that the canvases would "grow" in size with inspiration! I began by using heavy white gesso from Prima to add texture to the edges of the canvas and my Wiltons Cake Pillar stand! I then pulled out my design team kit which included some new release product by Prima ...the Rossibelle collection and some cute flowers from the Sweet Peppermint collection. Although the Sweet Peppermint collection is a Christmas themed collection, the floral colors are pinks, greens, cream...totally can be used for everyday crafting.  I stayed true to form using shabby chic colors but added lots of texture with layering of resin pieces, flowers, wood and metal pieces, sewing thread....its all in there! I will include all the beautiful product from Renea's store down below which include Mulberry Flowers, Glitter Glass, Tiny Treasure Butterflies and the afore mentioned Prima product that was used on this particular project! You can click on any of the links to take you directly to that product! Or if you would like to go the main page of the Etsy shop, click the link to the right on my sidebar. I've also included the Youtube video link, which shares my ENTIRE start to finish process! Here are the photos:

Inspirational Shabby Chic Wall Art (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

   Soooooo, I had this insert from a 12x12 3D frame. When I put my very chunky LO into it, I removed this insert, because it would allow my page to fit, but I didn't want to throw it away because I thought I might be able to use it someday... and that "someday" has arrived! It was already white, but I wanted texture, so I used a foam pounce brush and white chalk paint. I pounced the brush up and down with the paint, creating tiny texture and heat set it in between the 3 layers that I ended up doing. For the background, I had this 12x12 sheet of wire from Hobby Lobby, so I stapled that to the back of the frame.   I painted it with the chalk paint as well. (The fabric behind the wire is just my backdrop for the photo, so this art is see-thru with the wire).
 
 I used Prima Stationers Desk paper for the main piece and layered a 6x6 piece of acrylic over the top and used a sewing machine to adhere the two together. I did this, so that the background would seem soft, transparent  and also, so that the center décor would seem to float in the midst of the frame.  I used a Prima stencil on top with Prima Light Paste and Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio White Sidewalk Spray for a light mist in areas.  I used tons of flowers, Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Resin/Metal pieces, Prima Floral trim, and wood words from my stash. The remaining embellishments came From Reneabouquets Etsy shop (I will have those links down below).  I will also have the link to my YT video explaining this project in further detail. Also, please note that the direct link to Reneabouquets Etsy shop is to the right on my sidebar, if you wish to go directly to the main page vs. through a product link! Thanks for stopping by!

Altered 5x7 Canvas (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

 
I've taken an alterable 5x7 canvas that I purchased and designed it, using some mixed media techniques, into something Shabby Chic and added a little romantic flair as well!  I wanted to feature a favorite photo of my husband and I...and I know that if it weren't for Reneabouquets products, this project would not have come alive!  I used tons of product from Renea's Etsy shop to create this project and I will have those product links listed below!  Here are some close-up photos of the project and a link to the YT video, which explains the project in further detail and where, I cannot believe that I forgot to mention (in the video) the beautiful Reneabouquests Tiny Treasures Butterfly (Sweet Pea) that I used! It was adhered right on top... ...showcased in all its glitter glory! :)
 Anyhoo...here are the photos, video, and product links:
