Hello everybody!! Hope you had a great weekend. I finally tackled trying to clean out my scrap room, and I can't believe what a hoarder I am-lol! I think I threw away 4 large garbage bags of just junk and little pieces of stuff~I certainly take after my late Pawpaw with my Magpie Tendencies ;) I think I need an intervention!!
Today, I have a layout that I created as a Design Team Member for the Tresors De Luxe Etsy Shop. It was created for an Etsy Customer of mine named Kelly Ralston. Kelly wanted me to take her mother's, precious little photo, and create something special that she can give her mother this Christmas. Her mother grew up on a wheat and sheep farm, so I wanted something country, and kind of rustic, yet soft and sweet to compliment that darling photo. I came up with this Country Chic layout, and Kelly loved it and she also gave me permission to share it with all of you. I hope that when Kelly gives it to her, it reminds her a bit of her childhood and of home :)
I used lots of Tresors Items:
I used papers from past Scraps Of Elegance Kits, created lots of distressed layers, and then added acrylic paint and seed beads to the edging for lots of texture. I then ran some of the yummy Tresors Lace down one of the folded back edges and started layering in all my details.
Here you can see close ups of a Chipboard heart that I distress crackled and layer painted. I then added the organza flower spray, large organza flower and pink rhinestone flower onto it. I spray misted some burlap pieces and added them in for that rustic, country texture. The butterflies are Oh So Shabby Chic Butterflies from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop.
At the top of the hemp rope frame, I added some chicken wire chipboard, and more of those Tresors flowers and burlap.
Here you can see a close up of the gorgeous, Tresors Crochet Doilly. It was originally white, but I misted and inked it to get a multiple tone color.
I love that the Tresors pieces can take on so many different looks, and this Country Chic look is just one of them! Thank you Kelly for letting me create for you, and thanks to all of you who always take the time to leave me lovies, because I read and love them all !!! Hugs, ~Renea
