This month I participated in a pocket letter swap for Reneabouquets hosted by Donna (Bonprof). I made this for Linda Bell. This is also being entered in the Mood Board Challenge for Reneabouquets. The themes are Shabby Chic, Rustic, and Farmhouse.
First, special thanks to:
Donna for the butterflies on the margin, the tiny butterfly in pocket 9, tiny keys in pocket 6
Lisa (Iluvcats) for the doily diecut in pocket 1
Lois (Granny2One) for the corner diecuts in pockets 3 and 7
Marylou (Meggie's Nana) for the honeycomb diecut in pocket 5
Kelly (KVRLVN) for the diecut leaves in pocket 5 and the lovely window in pocket 9
Carri (Caletts) for the pink prills in pocket 6
Reneabouquets products are all the butterflies, Beautiful Board hanger in pocket 1, scissors in pocket 2, lace in pocket 4, cabochon in pocket 8 and rose in pocket 9.
The pretty frame was made by Faith Chesney Griffin on FB and I painted it up a bit with Liquid Pearls.
The spoon handle pendant in pocket 4 is from Hobby Lobby and I used Patina and alcohol inks on it. I also used Patina on the scissors, little key in Pocket 1 and a little on the large key in pocket 6.
The green paper is Paper Studio's Kirby Teesdale Studio collection. The upper layer is Prima's Tales of You and Me. I used Versamark around the edges and heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel. The image under the window frame is from Pinterest as well as the bucket of flowers in pocket 2 and the clock in pocket 1. Lace on the left margin was from Pamela Joy Boutique on FB. Isn't it gorgeous stuff??!!
On the corner and window diecuts I rubbed Tsukineko Dew Drops Chalk Ink pads using Turquoise Gem, Red Brick and Pumpkin Spice to give them the farmhouse rustic look.
I made the rose in the center using water color paper, spritzing each piece with water, wrinkling each piece up, flattening out and tapping directly onto the Tim Holtz distress ink pads, then put them together with a little brad.
Thank you so much for visiting my gallery. I have added close-ups to see detail a bit better.
