Epic For Reneabouquets

Good morning, my lovely crafty friends! Today I'd love to share my latest creation for Reneaboquets Etsy Shop and Reneabouquets.com featuring a bunch of goodies from the shop.
For this I used a mixture of papers from Marion Smith Designs. I have quite a bit of layering and texture packed into this one. I started my background  by lightly dabbing gesso in random areas, adding splatters of white and black acrylic paint, then adding more texture using the "ledger" stencil and texture paste. After adding more paper layers, tucking in a few embellishments here and there, I added a touch more stenciling. Once I had the majority of the embellishments in place I added touches of color to the background using Prima Color Bloom sprays before adding a few random pearls. As a finishing touch I dabbed a bit more gesso on random spots throughout the layers.
Here are some close ups of the details...
And here's my supply list from Reneabouquets with direct links to the shop:

Cherish for Let's Get Sketchy

Good morning all! A brand new sketch has been revealed at Let's Get Sketchy and I have my inspiration page to share with you based off this week's sketch.
 I used papers by Blue Fern Studios with flowers, lace, and buttons from my stash. On my background I've done just a bit of stamping, followed by stenciling with texture paste. Then finishing up with a few splatters of white and black acrylic paint as well as a few splatters of  Blue Fern spray in Cotton Candy. I took the three photo design from the sketch and layered them just a bit closer together and mounted them on thin cardboard from dimension.
And here's this week's fabulous sketch...
Now it's your turn and I can't wait to see your takes! Thanks so much for dropping in! Hope you have a creative day!
