Shabby Chic Home Decor (DT Project for Renea Bouquets)

I wanted to create a piece of home décor featuring one of my favorite love poems of all time by ee cummings, "I Carry Your Heart". Its a meaningful poem featuring all the love and romance of one human being to another and it touches my heart, so I wanted to include the poem displayed onto a heart shape flying on the "wings" of romance! I used the Prima collection, Stationers Desk, for this project which includes the matching flowers to the collection. I also used some other great Prima Resin and metal pieces, a chipboard brick wall a wood sentiment, Tim Holtz Ranger texture paste & Gypsies metal gear and topped it all off with a beautiful ReneaBouquet handmade butterfly. I think this butterfly is my fav! Most of the Prima pieces came from Renea's store, so be sure to check out what she has in stock for your papercrafting/art needs! I printed the poem onto an inkjet transparency before sewing it to the Prima paper so that the beautiful design of the paper would show through. I added acrylic paint mixed with sand for texture all over the embellishments and plaque. Here are the pics!

Here is the start to finish process from my YouTube channel:
