Shabby Chic Wall Art {Bo Bunny & Dusty Attic}

Hi all!  So a couple weeks ago I got my design team pack for all the mid season releases from Bo Bunny.  One of the new collections is called Juliet, and it is absolutely gorgeous! So many pretty, feminine images in this collection!  In my package I got these cute lil Misc Me pocket squares.  Now I'm not much of a pocket album person, so I don't generally get the Misc Me stuff sent to me, but they do send me some of the coordinating products to make use of in other things. When I saw these cute little squares, it made me think of this wonderful Dusty Attic Fleur de Lis Frame set that I've had in my stash for some time now.  I was delighted to see that the little pocket squares fit perfectly into each of the windows!.....So I began by giving the whole frame set a coat of Gesso, then a coat of a cream color acrylic paint.  I rubbed some brown chalk ink (Ingvild Bolme's Branch Bark) on all the edges for a little aging. Then I did a little random stamping with an older scripted title stamp from the Bo Bunny Enchanted collection.

I chose one of the gorgeous new scripty titles that Dusty Attic recently released....I thought the word 'Charming' would work nicely with this wall art.  Dusty Attic Word package #27

Once I chose all the pretty little pocket square designs that I wanted to use, I then went about adding a little bit of machine stitching to each of the squares to add a nice homespun feel to the design.  Then the really fun part started....embellishing the little vignettes.  First I chose a couple of the new little laser-cut designs Bo Bunny came out with at the last CHA. Above you see one of the butterfly designs.  I attached this and added a bit of glitter with their Frost and Gold Glitter Pastes.

For another square I used one of the clock laser-cut chippies from Bo Bunny.  Here again, I added some glitter accents with Bo Bunny's Wasabi and Gold Glitter pastes.

I used some vintage mother of pearl buttons, cheesecloth and lace to give a nice aged, tattered look to some of the squares.

For this square I used another of the wood accents from the Ironworks wood embellishments (Bo Bunny) and topped that off with a pretty brad from the coordinating brad collection from Juliet.

I so much love the beautiful vintage images in this collection, the antique dress form is so pretty I thought it could just stand on it's own, no embellishing needed.  I did however use a layered chipboard design from the Juliet collection to add a floral topper for my wall art design.

In the bottom left corner I used a wood flourish accent from the Clock Works wood embellishment package from Bo Bunny.  I gave this the same treatment as I gave the frame. My final touch was to add pearl dots all around the framework using Bo Bunny's Butterscotch Pearlescents.

Thanks Sugar! I really love your style - there is not a romantic bone in my body. I am more of a Halloween type. When I can start crafting again - I want to watch and/or read everyone of your tutorials!!
