Shabby Chic Envelope with Attributes of Love for ReneaBouquets
Welcome to my blog. I am sharing a very special project with you today, as I am thrilled to be invited as a Guest Designer for ReneaBouquets this month!
To make use of her absolutely gorgeous projects, I decided to make a piece inspired by 1 Corinthians 13. In this chapter of the Bible, we can read about the Attributes of Love. I was inspired to use this as the message of my home decor piece.
This is a metal and wood envelope, and as you can see, I was able to alter it and make it a gorgeous piece that would be suitable for home decor, or to celebrate any special occasion!
I began by painting the base of the envelope with gesso, and adding designer paper to the inside. I then used gel medium, and Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass to give it a shabby distressed, but classy look. Of course I had to make use of some of Renea's absolutely gorgeous Vintage Blue Mulberry flowers.
added just the perfect mix of vintage and femininity to my project.
Here you can see the beautiful Trim Timeless White lace as well as the texture from the glass glitter added to the designer paper. I used Stamperia papers for this project, as well as vellum and Kraft paper for lots of shabby texture.
Here you can see where I also made a small banner using vintage seam binding topped with small hearts and Cotton Candy flat back pearls . This envelope is also a shaker, and has an inlay heart that also states :Love does not delight in evil bu rejoices in the Truth...
I also heat embossed and distressed the envelopes as needed using Ranger Oxide ink and White Embossing powder from Recollections, and a stamp from BoBunny.
The last envelope in this project was made using embossed vellum, mulberry paper, glimmery tulle, embossed and distressed paper, lacy paper diecuts, and I added heart paper clips from Tonic Studios as well as the gorgeous dragonfly that matched perfectly from Reneabouquets.
I share more details in my video, as well as a tutorial showing the assembly of the large envelope. This was tons of fun to make, and it was a wonderful experience using these gorgeous projects. Please use the links for your convenience, and as always I hope that you can
