Fairy Dust Loaded Envelope~

Over on the Reneabouquets Facebook Artists With An Edge Group, Design Team Artist Julie Monroe is hosting a Summer Escape Challenge, encouraging us to try a new Mixed Media Technique. I wanted to take the challenge and decided to try my hand at adding Heavy Gel Medium to one of the pieces on my Loaded Envelope, a Printed Beautiful Board Lissie B. Darling piece to make her look like a giclée painting.

I used a small paint brush and added strokes to her hair and wings, dipping the edges of her wings into some Pearl Shard Glitter Glass. I then used a wide paint brush to add thee strokes on her dress.
And now Lissie was all painted up and ready to be added to my project!

All the paper on this project is from a Prima Cherry Blossom 12 x 12 Paper Pad.  I created a 9 Inch Tall x 6 Inch Wide Pocket from a 12 x 12 sheet of the paper. I then cut a second layer, distressed the edges and added that to the cover.

I ran some Sheer Romance Lace across the bottom of the pocket, and then added flowers from the following sets:

on, and then topped it with my giclée painted 

I created little puddles of the Pearl Shard Glitter Glass in the background, added the Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass sprinkled Dust Word from the Beautiful Words Sparkle, Fairy, Dust, Moment Laser Cut Chipboard Set , and popped on a 

I added the Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass sprinkled Fairy word from the same set topped with another Lissie Kiss to the top portion of the envelope.

Above the Fairy word piece, I created a little floral spot with matching flowers from the sets, and tucked in a sweet little fairy on a star charm and fairy orb from the Fairy Trinkets Set.

Here is the Envelope with all of it's treasures tucked inside, and 

this is one of the 2 double sided large tags, topped with White Beautiful Bows Lace and a rhinestone and pearl button from the Fairy Trinkets. The wand is a Beautiful Board Star Fairy Laser Cut Chipboard Pocket Wand that I sponge painted with gesso and then sprinkled with Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass, adding Silver Christmas Glitter Glass to the fairy's wings. The wand is accented with a hand dyed seam binding bow, a pink sorbet mini rose and the little fairy on the moon charm from the Fairy Trinkets set.

This piece is a tag that I created by coating a Beautiful Board Medium Lacy The Moon Fairy Laser Cut Chipboard with the Diamond Glitter Glass, adding some of the paper as backing, punching a hole and adding a seam binding pull.

Here you can see the envelope and all of its tuck ins!!

Get Your Sparkle On!

Get Your Sparkle On!! What girl doesn't love a little sparkle in her life??!! I created this card with lots of sparkle with products from Reneabouquets:

I started with a base that I created from some Prima Heaven Sent 2 Papers, added a layer of  Teal Tulle Trim and  White Tulle Trim,  then created a second layer that curled the bottom edges on.

I love the look you get from paper curling, and it is fairly easy to do. I just take a ruler and mark how I want to cut my strips, 

and then use a Bamboo Skewer (yes the kind you use to grill with) to roll the ends up on.
I then painted the curls with gesso and sprinkled them with Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass, and glued the layer onto the base over the trim.

Next, I painted a Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Gumball Machine with gesso and then heat embossed the silver accents, and then popped some Teal Tinted Glass Beautiful Beads  into the holes that were designed into the chipboard for them. 

Beautiful Bits Circles got a thick layer of coarse texture gel painted onto them.

And then a dusting of 
Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass
for that extra sparkle!

I added the circles randomly and then Glitter Glassed the paper edges for a really Sparkly look.

At the bottom corner, I added a Prima Misty Rose Paxton Flower Cluster.

Created a hand dyed seam binding bow, a little button and a White Fairy Orb.

I did not like the B-side of the papers, so I just covered the inside with some of the matching pink polka dot paper.

And then covered the back side with the same, matching paper for a finished, designer look!
I love how easy using all the Reneabouquets products made putting together this card!
You can really capture a unique look in just a few easy steps!!
Thank you for the visit and I hope I have inspired you to add a little Sparkle to some of your projects! Hugs ~Renea
