Mixed Media Floating Wall Frame (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I decided to create a page layout on a frame! Possibly nothing genius about the process, except that I wanted the mixed media background to appear to be "watermarked" or "opaque" looking and I wanted it also to be "floating" so that the entire combination would be soft and romantic! For this look, I chose to purchase a floating frame from Walmart. I used paper from the Tim Holtz collection, French Industrial. A beautiful set of papers! I slid this paper, after sewing the perimeter, in between the glass (as opposed to on top of the glass) so that it would have that floating look I was going for. On top of the glass, I used  a Prima crackle stencil with Ranger Texture Paste, Prima Color Bloom spray in Pearl White, Mister Huey's Opaque White mist, some Multi Medium paste with Reneabouquets Glitter Glass in Diamond. Everything but the Mister Huey's Spray and Multi Medium  came from Reneabouquets shop. The sprays really gave me the watermark/opaque look that I was trying to achieve and the glitter glass added the beautiful shimmery softness. Once this look was all achieved, I began simply embellishing on the top of the glass with my photo, Wild Orchid Craft and Prima flowers, Prima products, along with a vintage lace, a beautiful handmade butterfly and a dragonfly from Reneabouquets shop. I will list the exact product I used from Reaneabouquets below the photos! To get to Reneabouquets shop, simply click on the shop link to the right on my sidebar!  Here's the photos:

Shabby Chic Wall Art (DT Project for ReneaBouquets)

This time around I decided to use an outer frame from a clock to make a beautiful piece of wall art. Of course, I removed the clock mechanism for this project. I used acrylic paint mixed with sand to texture the outside of the frame. For the inside, I used the Authentique and Carta Bella collections for my paper lines. I wanted a project with the colors of aquas and whites so that it would be both shabby and soft. I used a brick mask and Ranger Texture paste (from ReneaBouquets) on the background. While the texture paste was still wet, I added some beautiful ReneaBouquets Chunky Glitter Glass in Diamond to the top of the paste. I then added some homemade shimmer mist using Perfect Pearls Mint shade (which really looks aqua, so it was perfect) to allow the Glitter Glass to stand out just a bit. Then I just began layering with beautiful products from Renea's Shop such as Victorian Days Lace, the exquisite double layer Vintage Romance Butterfly and tons of Prima product. This was a simple project to create, but I think it will look stunning amongst home décor! I will list the products I used from Renea's shop below the pictures. To get to her shop, just click on the link to the right on my sidebar. Here's the pictures:
