Shabby Chic DIY Altered Home Decor Keepsake (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I wanted to create a beautiful gift for a friend, (whose daughter had recently married this last summer) and the minute she popped a few pictures onto social media, I saw them, had to have them for my project and saved them quickly to my album. I actually wasn't sure which photo I was going to use for this project until I received a new Beautiful Board release from Reneabouquets...the "Tree Frame" (link will be below). It went perfectly with this photo of the bride, so picturesque, in front of the silhouetted tree. I used a Dollar Tree Wood Home Décor piece, removed the "yarn art" and painted it with Prima Heavy Black Gesso. I tried to stay within the feel of my friend's home colors of greys, stones, and natural shades, recolored the photo just a bit to give it a more timeless feel, and added beautiful pieces (including the 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 Wood Tag (DT Project for Reneabouqets)

I found an idea on Pinterest. It was simply a card with a ton of beautiful ruffled fabrics. I took that idea and using a 5x8 wood tag, developed it further into a piece of Home Decor that can be hung up or displayed in an easel.  I was privileged to use some beautiful Reneabouquets laces/trims, Glitter Glass, Trinkets and the luscious Beautiful Board Product! The items used in this project will be below the pictures with direct links to each of them. Since this project has a lot of detail and writing those out would require a published manuscript (LOL), I will include the You Tube video which features the entire project in a start to finish format! There will be a link below the photos a well! Thanks for stopping by!

Fabric Shabby Chic Pumpkin (DT project for Reneabouquets)

When I took a look at Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Quilling Pattern Set, my eyes feasted on the "leaves" in this set and since its that time of year, I knew those "leaves" would be a perfect compliment to creating a shabby chic fabric pumpkin from scratch!! I have never created a fabric pumpkin from scratch before so I did a little research, came up with a few options of my own and (PRESTO!!!) a pumpkin has emerged! I used beautiful laces from Reneabouquets to adorn my pumpkin with and also used one of those laces to create a flower for my pumpkin! I hung some beautiful trinkets from Reneabouquets Fairy Trinket pack, along with other pearls, baubles, charms and paper flowers from my own supply, a few more Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Shabby Heart bits and then finished up with some beautiful Reneabouquets Glitter Glass to add a beautiful shimmery effect!
Here are the photos along with a You Tube video showing a start to finish process
of decorating my shabby pumpkin! If you are at all curious as how to create the actual pumpkin,
there is also a link to that on the video itself!
Links to Reneabouquets products used on this project will be below  as well!

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!
