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 First up...the pictures!
