"Wonderful You" Mixed Media Tag

Hi everyone, today I have a special project to share with you. It's my design team project for Art Anthology. Dedicated to a wonderful friend for many many years that I lost almost 2 years ago. The image on the front of this tag is from the very last birthday card she gave me. On the back of this tag I adhered her personal note to me at the time. I think this is  perfect place to hold on to this keepsake. Hope you enjoy my project.
I prepped this wooden tag with white gesso and then collaged book pages as well as scrapbook paper on the top. Then I used a stencil with black modeling paste for some added texture. 
For more vintage goodness I rusted up this metal heart as well as added Ideaology Transparent Wings, & added florals. 
Rust and Patina Texture paste was also added to the corners of the tag for a yummy texture. 
I sprayed my seam binding to match my project and added some rusty wire to wrap around the entire tag. I hope you enjoyed. For your pleasure here is a video of my creative process... xoxo Toni

"Sweet As Honey" Layout for ReneaBouquets

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new ReneaBouquets design team project. Today I have for you a spring filled layout with lots of ReneaBouquets products.
To start off with I wanted dimension on my page so with a duplicate sheet of the sunflower paper I fussy cut some of the flowers, adhered on chipboard, distressed the edges and then using 3D foam squares applied to the coordinating flower. (You can watch my process in the video below). Then to enhance those pretty flowers I used Black Microbeads from ReneaBouquets store. 
I used Black Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel on my Beautiful Board "Sweet As Honey". The gorgeous Queen Bees with glass wings are made lovingly in ReneaBouquets store. 
Beautiful Board is just the perfect accents to tuck away to embellish your projects, and what can I say about the mulberry flowers, but they are just perfect. 
Thank you for stopping by and paying us a visit. For your pleasure I do have a process video below. I would love you to subscribe to my channel as well as follow me on my social networks. Have a wonderful day and do some creating.

Mixed Media Flower Canvas for Art Anthology

Hi everyone, today I'm playing with some of the new products from Art Anthology and my design team project is this mixed media canvas which I began the textured foundation with Crackle Paste. Then using a stencil I applied the gel based paints from AA using a frosting technique... You can view this in the video below. 
Once the paints were dry I then fussy cut them out and sprayed them with Colorations Spray in Raider  (black) over the entire flowers. The dimensional paints work as a resist so it only colors the background of the flowers. Flowers are then adhered to the canvas and finished off with a dry brushing of gold for highlights. 
Finnabair Melange Pebbles are painted with gold and applied for texture and interest to the canvas and my title was used from Finnabair's Art Cafe Sentiments.  For your pleasure I have included a YOUTUBE video below of my creative process. Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.

Beautiful Dreamer Shaker Box Card for ReneaBouquets DT Project

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new design team project for ReneaBouquets featuring, of course, ReneaBouquets yummy items. This month I am involved in a Shaker Card Swap with ReneaBouquets and I decided to use the G45 Imagine paper collection that you can order from the store. The addition of the Beautiful Board Butterfly Corner to the lady's face worked perfectly. A little bit of fussy cutting of the paper roses and an Ideaology Hitch on the side with more items from ReneaBouquets store attached.  
The inside of the card opens to the shaker card full of goodies by ReneaBouquets as well. (All supplies will be listed below in the video information below.) A side pocket was created to hold a tag with a little note to my swap partner.  
The fun thing about swaps is to send out goodies to our creative swap partners, The new Beautiful Board Loaded Card,Tag or Frame Chipboard Kit is perfect because it has a little pocket to hold goodies.  Pictured to the right of the frame kit are the new Sweetheart ATC's and I used them to wrap some pretty laces for my partner.  
Altered some cute little clothespins and added some flowers and butterflies from the store as well. 
Some stickpins I created fit perfectly in the little pocket. Hope you take a moment to view my video below which will show you how I decorated this frame kit as well as more information regarding the other items I created for my swap partner.  Wishing you a day filled with joy and peace. xoxo Toni

Shabby Chic Altered Tea Pot for ReneaBouquets

Hi everyone, today I have for you a design team project for ReneaBouquets and I decided to alter one of Prima's new teapot frames. I started by dry brushing the teapot with white gesso and then highlighting some of the areas with silver metallic EP. 
For the inside of the teapot I placed one of ReneaBouquets Beautiful Board clock faces and used G45 Imagine paper line to back it. Coffee stained a doily tucked inside and embellished with some of ReneaBouquets gorgeous butterflies and flowers. The silver spoon and teacup on the bottom are part of ReneaBouquets Princess Trinket line. 
On the top of the teapot I placed ReneaBouquets Printed Beautiful Board "Tea With Me".  It's so easy to create a shabby piece with all of ReneaBouquet items in the store HERE. 
For your pleasure I have created a process video below.... so grab a cup of tea and sit back and enjoy ! Supplies used from ReneaBouquets store are listed in the video information below. xoxo
