All Things Tattered~

I grew up in a world of hand me downs and trash to treasures, and so I have a soft spot in my heart for all things Tattered. I created this layout to capture that love and I hope you enjoy my Tattered Layout! I used lots of new products from Reneabouquets and all the texture, dimension and detail of the products I design really help to pull off the look that I love.

I started with a sheet of Blue Fern Wanderlust Paper - Road Trip, and then cut down a second sheet from the same collection- Lakeside and distressed and inked the edges.

Next I used a large piece of torn edge corrugated board, and painted the entire board with Ranger Opaque Crackle, let that air dry to get the deep crackled effect that I love, and then misted it with 
Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Spray Stain, then misted it with Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge Distress Spray Stain, and then shot it for a third time with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stain.
I then took the sprayer off, and dipped a paint brush into the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stain and painted the edges of my corrugated board. 

I tore off some pieces from the Wanderlust Petites Paper, Mod Podged those to the board, and then painted the edges with more of the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Spray , and then added on some Tea Rose Beautiful Bits. Beautiful Board comes in a gorgeous Vintage White Color and I didn't need to do anything to these pieces to get the look I wanted!! 

To add in more texture, I took some burlap cloth and added it in, then topped it with my photo, and then added a Beautiful Board Open Rose Laser Cut Chipboard Frame. I used the frame in it's natural Vintage White color and then, 

took a script stamp and some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and accented the frame.

To add to the texture and dimension of the layout, I took some Tiny Heart Beautiful Bits, sprayed them with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Spray Stain, mixed them in with some Reneabouquets Rust Microbeads, and used them just like you would glitter or beads to create YUMMY puddles!!

I created a hinged look by taking some pieces from the Reneabouquets Latch Trinkets, and giving them a rust treatment.

I sponge painted some Beautiful Board Heart Lattice Elements Laser Cut Chipboard with Dina Wakley Gesso to get a textured effect and then cut them out and tucked them into random places on my layout, using the larger cut out pieces and the smaller leftover pieces to create pattern throughout my layout.

Using flowers from the following sets:
Vintage Blue Mini Roses Mulberry Paper Flower Set
I created floral spots on my layout, and then made twine bows and tucked those in, I inked Skeleton Leaf Beautiful Bits, and Rose Leaf Beautiful Bits with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress Ink, combined them together and tucked those in.

I have wanted to do some words with my Beautiful Board Chipboard, but I just couldn't bring myself to do the same old, generic script words that other companies do, so I created Beautiful Words, and the one that I used on this layout is the Beautiful Words On Wood Grain Printed Beautiful Board With Word Option Tattered Laser Cut Chipboard.

I just love how the Printed Beautiful Board Wood Grain Base adds color and texture, while the Beautiful Board letters add dimension and texture. So Beautiful With An Edge!!

For the final touches, I took some a set of Double Side Printed Mid Winter's Dream Butterflies and added some of the misted Tiny Heart Beautiful Bits added those to the centers of the butterflies and popped a tiny little pearl on top of each heart.
Thank you for dropping by and letting me share a little piece of my Tattered Heart with you!!
I hope you have an amazing weekend, and find the time to create something beautiful for the heart yourself!! Hugs~Renea
