Mixed Media Wall Decor (DT Project for ReneaBouquets)
This is a design team project for ReneaBouquets! I turned a premade wood slat board that I purchased from a local scrapbook store into a wall décor piece featuring a favorite wedding photo of mine! I used Marion Smith's new collection, Romance Chapter 2 as well as some ephemera pieces from Tim Holtz and Pink Paislee. I printed my picture onto an inkjet transparency and added it on top of some of the beautiful paper so that the design of the paper shines through the transparency. I love doing this effect! I distressed all the edges of the beautiful papers with the Prima Distress tool and then ran each piece through my sewing machine. I added tons of Prima, Petaloo and Wild Orchid Craft flowers in colors of blues, pinks, greens and creams. I layered tons of yummy embellishments by Prima, a pair of Melissa Frances Resin Wings, some favorite wood pieces/quotes, added tons of texture using Ranger Texture Paste and Liquitex Glass Bead texture gel. I added additional color using Prima Color Bloom Sprays in Cotton Candy and Tea Stain. You can find the Prima Color Bloom sprays at Renea's shop, as well as the Ranger Texture Paste, Prima Resin Birds, Prima Resin Frames, Crochet Lace in a natural color, and the Tiny Treasures Pink Bubblegum Butterflies. Here's the pics, followed by the YT vid, which is a start to finish process since there is too much to explain in detail with just words! Enjoy!
