It's Monday! Yawn no more, because it's time for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show. From lace, roses, and doilies, to adding a bit of a shabby touch with some brown ink around the edges, to adding bits of pearls to that vintage creation, this week we’re thinking "Shabby Chic". Now, if this style is normally too feminine or frilly for you, we challenge you to take just one element that is often considered shabby chic and try to incorporate that. You’re also welcome to focus on the ‘chic’ or just the ‘shabby’ part in this challenge too. From brown inks to soft trims and vintage findings, we hope you’ll join in and create something with us this week.
I love to incorporate scrapbooking with my home decor, and what better way to do so than with a little 'chic'. When I think Shabby Chic, I think about gathering up great vintage finds and combining those with others that are complimentary, but it must have pearls, lace, and roses, and be vintage with a little French something or another thrown in. That's what I tried to do here in this 8x10 inch frame, that I am currently teaching to a group of people, which explains the lack of photos here. I did show you the base however.create your work of Art and enter it into our challenge. You just might be the lucky winner of a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp. You can also be named as one of the "Top Three Picks" for this challenge. Good luck, and please visit the other DT member's blogs to check out their super shabbily chic projects this week. Talk about eye candy!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
