Reneabouquets March 2018 Spring Mood Board Facebook Challenge

Good morning! We are already into March...March means spring right? Nope. Not here in Alaska. It means snow. At least this year it does. We had minimal snow all winter, but in the last couple weeks we have gotten about 2 feet of it. I don't mind though, I love the snow. It is so pretty, bright and sometimes, when the sun hits it just right, it sparkles like glitter. 

I am ready for warm weather and pretty flowers, however. Which is the reason for the theme of the Reneabouquets March Spring Mood Board Challenge

For the challenge inspiration, I made a mixed media canvas using aprox. one ton of Reneabouquets items. Seriously though, take a look at the long list at the bottom of this post! 

Here is the Spring Mood Board for the March challenge. 

I was inspired by the flowers and soft colors in the mood board. Which is why I used tons of Reneabouquets Mulberry Paper Flowers.


I have been wanting to do an altered paint brush for the longest time. Not sure why I waited so long to do it, but I sure love how it turned out on this canvas. 


I used many Reneabouquets Beautiful Board pieces, glitter glass, pearls, and butterflies. Every item used from Reneabouquets gives this piece endless charm. 


To make the soft colors, I painted over everything with gesso. I did a couple of layers to achieve the look that I wanted. 


After the gesso had dried I placed the Beautiful Beads Coppered Teal Iridescent Pearls on the canvas. I love these pearls! They are even more gorgeous in person than they are in the picture.


I was able to create lots of yummy textures on my canvas by using stencils, Ranger Tim Holtz Opaque Crackle Texture Paste and sand. I simply mixed sand straight into the Ranger Tim Holtz Opaque Crackle Texture Paste and then used the Ranger Ink Dina Wakley Media Palette Knife Set 
to spread the mixture over the stencil. 

The little dots you see here are made out of hot glue. Genius right?!? Yep, that was my 6 year olds idea. She is an artist herself. I love that she enjoys helping me with my projects.
