ReneaBouquets Upcycle Challenge-August 2021

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Over at Scrapbook.com, ReneaBouquet’s hosted an “Upcycle” Challenge, and I decided my newly broken pair of scissors would be the perfect item to upcycle! I grabbed up a 9×12 canvas board, a bunch of mediums, chipboard alphas, some Finnabair Mould pieces, my ReneaBouquet’s and got going!

Check out my process video to see how everything came about!

Before I got too carried away, I remembered to take a photo of my broken scissors! I had probably owned these scissors 20 years or so, so they had a good run, but they decided to retire themselves! (How do I know how long I’ve owned them? Because I remember their original purpose! They use to be my fabric scissors!)

In addition to the Finnabair stencil, I added some “Bee Hive” Beautiful Bits to my background for some added texture.

This project was rather relaxing because I didn’t have a plan. I just started grabbing items, grabbing mediums, and seeing where everything would take me! It took a few layers of mediums to get the look I had originally envisioned, but I enjoyed the process!

I don’t know if I’ve ever said it, but I am absolutely IN LOVE with Finnabair’s waxes!! The colors, the finishes, the coverage…EVERYTHING!

You can see how many different Finnabair mould pieces I have on here! And, like her waxes, I love her moulds! I was super excited when she came out with her “dark” line, and I was even more excited when I realized I could get some use out of a few of those “dark” pieces on this canvas!

ReneaBouquet roses and Beautiful Beads were the final touch for this canvas. The beads coordinate with the background colors, and those roses are the perfect contrasting color.
