Vintage Trunk Mini Album

Hi everyone, and happy Monday ! Today I have a new project filled with Reneabouquets goodies and I'm so excited to share it with you.
Reneabouquets has such a gorgeous selection of beautiful board, flowers, laces and trinkets, not to mention her handmade butterflies, that can take your mini album over to the next level. Sometimes I really have a difficult time not adding too much, because everything is so pretty to work with. 
On the front I added some gorgeous lace from the store and embellished it with several different handmade mulberry flowers and RB Salted Caramel butterfly. All the beautiful board used was embossed with Brass embossing powder. And what about that brooch...isn't it gorgeous. 
The handle on the top of the album is actually a door handle which I whitewashed it and then lightly embossed it also with the brass EP. 
To open, you lift the top and the sides come down (almost like an explosion box). And inside I have waterfalls, accordion pages, as well as tags, and hidden pockets. You can actually see all of this more in detail in the video below where I will take to page by page and share details of the album. 
Here are a couple pages of the album featuring on the right, a waterfall section and on the left and accordion fold out tiny mini album. 
This is another photo of a couple pages just to show you how pretty also is Reneabouquets chunky glitter glass that she carries, also in several beautiful colors. Oh and did I mention trinkets??? The charm I created on the left has some of the beautiful board dangling as well as a Fairy Princess Crown and on the left I have the Queen Bee Clock Charm. And this month Reneabouquets is offering a coupon for trinkets in the store.

"Lazy Daze" Mixed Media Layout for Reneabouquets

Hi everyone, hope you are having a spectacular month! Today I have a mixed media layout I created using several pretty pieces from Reneabouquets store. Let's get started !
I love dimension in my layouts so for the foundation I took some cardstock and ran it through a Sizzix embossing folder "wood grain" and also inked the embossing folder to give the texture an old wood appeal. Then I cut the cardstock in strips and distressed the edges. To create dimension, every other strip of cardstock I applied cardboard to the back and that raised up those strips on my layout. This provided a "shiplap" look. The photo used really provided my color palette for the layout, so I kept it pretty neutral with pops of red and black shades provided by Reneabouquets pretty mulberry flowers. All supplies are listed below. 
I did use several beautiful board pieces from Reneabouquets and they are gorgeous in their natural state, but I gave each one a little different mixed media touch. The bottom corner is the NEW Wrought Iron Panel.... gorgeous !!!!! I sponged on some green and brown paints and allowed to dry then went over it with Deco Art Crackle Varnish. For the Fancy Fall Tuckins I gave a coat of the crackle varnish and then added a bit of bronze shimmer wax here and there. 
The Clockwork gears I painted with black gesso, then crackle varnish and topped also with bronze shimmer wax. The Feather Set I embossed with bronze EP. Then to finish off the layout I included one of Reneabouquets handmade Delicate Beauty Glitter Glass Butterflies. I hope you will give your layouts a sense of dimension by trying out this simple technique... Wishing you a week plump full of goodness and "lazy daze"... hugs
