Shabby-chic Juliet Wall Art

Hi all, it's Gabrielle here with you today to share some Shabby-chic wall art that I made using the new (and gorgeous) Juliet collection!

Shabby-chic Wall Art by Gabrielle Pollacco

Wall art by Gabrielle Pollacco using Bo Bunny's Juliet collection and mixed media products

I've had this chipboard frame in my stash for quite some time now and when I saw the beautiful Misc Me pocket squares that coordinate with the Juliet collection, I knew I'd finally get to using it.   The pocket squares fit perfectly into the little windows, so I didn't have to mess around with measuring anything....the hardest part was choosing which of the pretty designs I was going to feature in each square.  For the frame, I just painted the whole thing with a cream color acrylic paint and then stamped on it randomly with an older BoBunny stamp (Enchanted).

Once I had decided where I would place each little vignette, I got down to the fun part of adding little bits of ephemera to each of the windows.  I began by choosing a couple of the new laser-cut chippies that BoBunny came out with at the last CHA.  I did a little bit of machine stitching to each of the pocket squares (give's a nice homespun feel)...glued down my accent and added some dots of BoBunny Glitter paste.

Another new laser-cut chipboard pack is the clocks designs, I added some Glitter paste as well to this one (Gold, that green color!) and added a pearl accent, then applied the piece with some foam adhesive dots to create a nice 3D effect. In this close-up you can see a floral sticker strip I used from the coordinating Juliet sticker sheet, that I used to frame the outside of my wall art.

I added snippets of cheesecloth and some old mother of pearl buttons for a aged tattered look in the corner of one of the pocket square designs.

I chose a cool wood accent from Bo Bunny's Iron Work wood designs for another of my squares, and topped up the design with that eye-catching brad from the coordinating brads packet.

I just love the vintage images on these pocket squares, so I left this particular one, as is....just above that design, I used a floral piece from the layered chipboard at a topper for my wall art.

In the bottom corner I used another wood piece, a flourish from the Clockworks collection.  I gave this piece the same finish (as well as the piece in the top right corner) as I gave the frame, some painting with cream color acrylic paint and some random stamping with a scripty word stamp from the older Enchanted collection.  Finally I added some finishing touches like dots of pearls all around the framework using BoBunny's Butterscotch Pearlescents.

I hope you enjoyed today's Bo Bunny project and hope you will give the gorgeous Juliet collection a try on your next home decor project!
