Shabby Chic/Mixed Media "Hope Captured" Home Decor Frame (DT Project for reneabouquets)

I wanted to create a beautiful gift for a friend  and was able to find a premade farmhouse type home décor piece from WalMart. I loved that it had a see through chicken wire center, but knew that the wooden cow wired to it, needed to be removed. LOL. I'll save that for a later project!  The original color was a very, very, very bright blue, so I primed it first with some white chalk spray paint and then used Prima Heavy White Gesso and a round pounce brush to add texture on top. I did several layers of pouncing the gesso onto the frame and then heat set it in between the layers. It gives such a wonderful, all-over, finite texture. I wanted to give the project a timeless, shabby chic, inspirational feel, and still add some steampunk type elements from Renabouquets new Beautiful Board line called "Steampunk Style". The gears look right at home amidst flowers, glitter glass, printed Beautiful Board, butterflies, lace, Blue Fern Studios new paper line called Tattered Walls and so much more from and Reneabouquets Etsy.   It all came together to complete an overall enchanting, textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed for years to come.
