It's Monday, and I am off and running, and the first thing I have up this morning is a Shabby Chic mini album that I created for Tresors De Luxe. I based the whole album on the Emily Dickinson quote "Hope" Is The Thing With Feathers~ I have written and collected poetry my whole life and that poem still remains one of my all time Favs. The Tresors items were teamed with the Scraps Of Elegance August Kit-Sweet Summer Nights. All the papers and pieces with the birds on them were just perfect for pulling off the symbolism of the poem.
I put tons of technique work into this album: from the Peeled Wallpaper Effect technique on the cover, to painting, fussy cutting, sewing, texture paste work, seed bead work, stamping with puffies, hand crafting my butterflies, stamping with inks, glitter paint accenting, alcohol ink work, hand crafting paper clay wings and tags, and hand tinting seam binding.
I have a lot more photos on my blog, plus the Peeled Wallpaper Effect Tutorial that I used on the cover. For more details and close ups, please visit my blog at:
I just love how Tresors pieces add such Shabby gorgeousness to any project!! If you decide to add a little of that Tresors Touch to your own projects, don't forget to mention that I sent you to Lucy when you make your purchase, and she will include a free gift in with your items :)
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope your week is off to a flying start!! Hugs, ~Renea
My Romantic Heart Glitter Glass Butterflies seen on this album are from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop :)
