Tree of Life Loaded Wedding Frame: Reneabouquets Design Team Project
Today I bring you this loaded Tree of Life Frame Chipboard Kit and Mini Album made with Tonic Studios Keepsake Book Maker Dies. I knew the moment I saw this gorgeous Beautiful Board piece, that I would enjoy working with all of its intricate detail! It was a perfect opportunity to play with my acrylic paints and Nuvo drops also!
I thought of this as a great bridal gift, and to give an example, inserted a picture of my wedding as a sample. To match the picture, I painted the Beautiful board pieces with white acrylic paint, followed by several other acrylic paints in blues, greens, pink, lavender, and yellow. Using a small brush, I added detail to the small ivy, and using dry-brush and splatter techniques, I was able to give the frame a speckled look incorporating all the mentioned colors.
It was the perfect touch to add Reneabouquet mulberry flowers to adorn this frame in soft pink and seafoam. This allowed the flowers to stand out. A small Tiny Treasure Lissie Glitter Glass dragonfly was the perfect addition. It has a subtle copper sparkle and a small pearl center. Just lovely among the other elements that top the frame. The itty bitty blossoms, skeleton leaves and mulberry roses also got a touch of Nuvo drops for added sparkle.
Here is a closer look of the hand-painted details and the lovely flowers Renea has to offer in her store. They are delicate and adorable on any project!
The best part about this frame, is that it also has a pocket in the back. Genius!! I decided to make a small mini album to fit the theme. The board is also hand painted, and this time I added a Precious Moments premium paper glitter glass butterfly to accompany the mulberry flowers.
Here you see a closer look at the Beautiful Board piece that is also the focal point of this mini album. It makes such a big impact! I wanted it to also be soft on the eyes, so I colored it with a Nuvo marker in a soft pink, and also added shine with pink nuvo drops. This also has an added butterfly, gears, small hearts, and lace, all from Reneabouquets.
As you can see here, there is also a gorgeous piece of Garden Bouquet lace, very fitting for this embellishment. I just love ho soft everything turned out once it was assembled!
Here is another view at the mini album, made with Tonic Studios dies and Blue Fern Studios papers, sold at Reneabouquets. It is gorgeous paper, so you need not add too much to it for it to have impact. I added delicate photo corners from Tonic Studios Designer Series dies and a seam binding bow to close it off.
The delicate gears are backed with vellum, topper with Nuvo drops, and nestled atop a snippet of Ivory wide floral embroidered lace. A Precious Moment Butterfly was the perfect complement to the cover of my book!
The first page is adorned with a piece of Ivory wide floral embroidered lace and an itty bitty flower.
As you can see, the inside is quite simple. I only added two signatures to ensure it would fit inside the frame. I also made some pages out of vellum and thin paper. Small tags also give a bit of whimsy to the pages.
I hope you have enjoyed this proyect. I certainly loved working with all the supplies Renea has to offer, and each month she has a great coupon to go along with your purchase! More details in the store, and below, a list of supplies for you to make your own!
