Shabby Chic Mixed Media Altered Art (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

So......I started with this wood photo display (a clearance item that I found at Micheals Craft Store) and decided to use its base as my base for this project. What drew me in to using this piece was the wood slats on the front. It also had an ornate shaped wood tag on the front of it, which I carefully pried off to reuse with my new idea for this piece and removed the wire photo holders...that I will save for use with another project....someday...when inspiration strikes! I, of course, used beautiful items from Reneabouquets (which will be listed below the pictures). I will also attach the link to my You Tube video which gives a "diy" explanation of the entire piece! Enjoy!

Shabby Chic/Mixed Media Wood Tag/Wall Decor (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

Using 8x8 (7gypsies) wood shadow box layer piece and a 5x8 wood tag that I purchased from Walmart, I created a piece of mixed media/shabby chic art to add to any home décor. I used items from  the "Always and Forever" scrapbook kit as well as Prima items and one of a kind items from Reneabouquets Etsy Store! I will link the YT video below which shows  the kit in its entirety as well as the video which explains this project in complete detail. As always, the links to products I used will be listed. Here's the pics:
