Shabby Chic "Parisian Diva" wall hanging!

Hello!

I want to share my latest project. It's a wall hanging! I love it. It's a gift for a friend and I purposely didn't finish it because she would know it was hers!

So, this wall hanging was made from compressed wood boards! I loved the idea of it for sturdiness. I used vintage french novel paper, vintage lace, white paper doily, designer paper from Daisy Bucket Designs called "On the Wings of a Dream"...love this paper! I wanted to go for a shabby chic look with pink creams and browns!! I love those colors! I used charms and my homemade flowers and bling and a bottle cap! I did a video on it...I'll attach it at the end of the pics...but here you are!! my pretty wall hanging..I hope you like it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and viewing!! Have a great weekend!! 






Here are pics of the finished project!




It's so pretty and most definitely one of my favorite projects!! Gotta make me another one!:) lol

Here is the video of what the whole thing looks like without the letters! 



 Thanks for watching!!

A faux ruler tutorial...and a crackle effect!

Hello everyone!

I posted a new video on my YouTube channel on making a faux ruler as an embellishment! I realize that there are bloggers out there that don't have a YT channel, so, I've decided to start posting more of my videos and projects here at The Jule Box blog!

I have some pics of what I used. I hope that this post has helped you to create something new! I've also posted a video on how to use crackle medium....just in case you were like me and didn't know how to get that effect...so I will include that video and a pic along in this post at the very end! 





 

I also wanted to share in the next tutorial, how to use crackle medium with your acrylic paints to get that really cool effect of an aged cracked look on projects. I love using my distress crackle paint by Tim Holtz but not for a project that requires a lot of coverage. So this is what I like to use...one of my fav things to do on an altered item!! I did a demo on medium weight chipboard. Here is a pic of that piece of CB and then of what I used, followed by the video! enjoy and thanks for stopping by! :)



I hope you have a fabulously blessed weekend! 

Thanks for stopping by!!
